East Tennessee Adventure

On August 28, Phil & I are traveling to the Jonesborough/Johnson City area. I grew up there and have re-connected with an old friend, who, as coincidence would have it, is also a cyclist. She will take us on a route around the area so we can enjoy some of the local sights. This is, by no means, a formal FOGBee excursion, but I do want to let everyone know that they’re welcome to come along. I think it will be nice to get to see a different part of the state via bicycle. I have a “connection” so we’ve gotten a pretty sweet deal on a room at The Carnegie Hotel (

I actually have two rooms reserved JUST IN CASE anyone else is interested!

It’s about 5 hours away – I-40 East to US 81 to 11E – but in my opinion, worth the drive. We’ll be staying both Friday & Saturday nights and will return on Sunday, August 30.

If you’d like to join us, please let us know! We’d love to have you. :)

P&L Sounds fun but I have other plans. My daughter is at ETSU and I have stayed at the Carnegie while visiting.
