       Hello Creepers,

    We have 18 headed to Abingdon in just 17 days.  I will be arriving early Friday to go to "Will Call" at the Barter to pick up our theatre tickets.  Contact me when you get settled in at your lodging to get your tickets from me.   I will be at "Park Street Guest House" 135  Park Street SE.  This is also where "Command Central/Happy Hour" will be located. There is a large "screened in porch" where Larry Plemons, Bernie Hilbrandt & I will be sharing "Margarita's" !!!! Oh course bring your own  BYOB, and snacks to share.  

    **** IMPORTANT**** When you arrive Friday, you must go to the bike shop to pay for your shuttle ride/rentals(if needed).  Do this Friday! Do not wait until Saturday morning to do this!!!

    You are own your own Friday night for dinner, just "Google" restaurants in Abingdon and you will find a  several to choose from.  Our "Group" dinner is Saturday night 5:30 p.m. at "Bonefire Smoke House" so you might not want to choose that one for Friday night.  If you want to eat at the "Tavern" you will probably want to call and make reservations. 

    We need to be at the Barter at least by 7:40 p.m. to be seated (our seats are on 2nd. and 3rd. rows.  So plan your dinner accordingly.

    Saturday Morning, we are on the 8:30 shuttle.  Be at the Bike Shop by 8:00 a.m. this is also very important as October is the most popular month of the Creeper Ride, the fall leaves should be gorgeous along the trail. 

    Bob Trammel is the "Trail Captain" for this fall  ride... he will give us instructions at the Bike Shop Saturday morning so please be on time...  

    See you Friday October 19, 2018 in Abingdon, VA



    The Virginia Creeper Trail is possibly the easiest, prettiest mountain bike ride you will ever encounter. The VA Creeper Trail, which is actually the "retired" railway corridor of the Virginia-Carolina Railroad, has become one of the most popular bicycling trail destinations in the eastern United States.

    The Va Creeper Trail stretches 34 miles from Abingdon, Virginia down thru the lovely town of Damascus, Va (known as the Heart of the Va Creeper) along the Whitetop Laurel River and up to its highest point Whitetop Station near the NC State Line at Whitetop, Virginia. The Va Creeper Trail is open year round to hiking, mountain biking and horseback riding.

    This former rail bed passes through the Mount Rogers National Recreation area and the highland country of Southwestern Virginia. The Virginia Creeper Trail is rich in beauty and regional history. This is an easy biking adventure that you and your friends and family will talk about for a long time.  

    Join us on this October 19-21, 2018 ride.  At this time we have   18 CSC riding the trail.

    Contact Barb Wise for information no lodging and booking your shuttle/bike rental (if necessary) to the top of  White Top Mountain

    Please read-New Info

    Happy Saturday Morning  to the 16 CSC members headed to NOLA! 

    Co-Captain David Satterfield and I have been working on some excursions for when we are in NOLA, *** Please note*** book your own tours (that is IF you want to), there is no "Planned Group Tours".  I am giving you info and you can go online and purchase if you so choose.  Here is what we have so far, David and I thought a "New Orleans Ghost Pub Crawl Tour" would be fun for Thursday night December 27th.  I have just gone online and purchased my ticket for the 8:00 p.m. Ghost Pub Tour.   If you want to join me, go to Ghostcitytours.com, follow the prompts.  If you sign up for the newsletter you will get a promo code for a $2.50 discount which made my ticket $23.80.  If you choose to NOT sign up the ticket is $26.45 including tax.  *** Make sure you go to the correct date in the calendar.  This is the most popular tour and you must book ahead. If will not be available when you get there.  The tour allows 28 people, so far I am 1 of 28.  I am also going to book a "Cemetery Tour" for Saturday December 29th @ 11:00am. I will have to "call" the tour company on this one.  I was not able to book online for this.  I have spoken with this tour company via phone and I was told that the City of NOLA only allows one tour a day now for the Cemetery, due to vandalism the cemetery is now closed to the public.  This is the only way to see this very beautiful historic cemetery. * I will update after I call tour company on how to book your tour.   * I will book a restaurant for a "group" dinner on Friday night for all of us.  

    David Satterfield has information on a 2 hour Jazz Steamboat Cruise for Friday December 28th at 2:00 p.m. *** (must be on Toulouse Wharf no later than 1:45 p.m.)*** the cost is $34.  If you have interest in the Jazz Steamboat Cruise please let me or David know just so we will know how many are interested,** again will send info for you to go online and book your own ticket.  Barb-423-902-6095, David-423-488-6189.

    On another note**** PICK POCKET**** Make sure to keep your credit cards and cash in a secure place on your body... usually a front pocket or around your neck is the best.  

    Update on Cemetery tour, I called to book my tour and at this time they would not allow me to book just one(1) ticket, they said I must book two or more the cost of this tour with tax is $21.15.  If you go online to book and book two  tickets please let me know, then they will allow me to book just one.  Because there is no one else booked this far out they will not let me purchase just one (1) ticket> "go figure"? the phone number is: 888-859-5375.  IF you are able to book this one on line *** make sure it is the "Cemetery Tour" at 11:00 a.m... the site jumped me to a totally different tour that starts at 8:00 p.m. that is NOT the Cemetery Tour. 

    I know this is long but necessary... more from me later on NOLA,

    Barb Wise-Trip Captain

    David Satterfield-Co-Captain

    We have 16 CSC members on this trip that have paid for the round trip train ticket.  We cannot take anymore CSC members at the group rate and the extra group seats have been released back to Amtrak.  IF you want to go on this trip I will provide phone number to Amtrak for you to make your own reservations. This trip was announced via several emails with information of the deadline to register for the group rate.  The hotel Royal in New Orleans does have a few rooms left with the group rate, the rooms will be released back to the hotel on November 1, 2018.  

    There are no planned group tours or activities in New Orleans, you are free to plan your own outing and tours.  

    New member David Satterfield is Trip Co-Captain and has been to New Orleans multiply times will offer suggestions.  I will also research tours and excursions, please if you have an idea for some tours and excursions let me know. 


    If you are one of the 16 CSC members on this trip; go to the registration form above left and registrar for this trip.  You will be able to sign the release form online and I need you to do this.  

    Thank You,
