I just made mine and got my special room for the 5’th thru the 12’th.

Oh, and I got it for $96 per night.

Just made mine too. May 5 thru May 10 with a wait list if Saturday May 4 opens up. I was told the rooms under the cabanas are considered just regular rooms at the regular lodge price.
Who did you talk to b/c they're telling me it's $133 a night for a Cabana?

Maybe that’s it. I always get first floor. Not a pool side.

I currently have a poolside room in the lodge. Figured that was a safe bet for the time being until I talk to Layla/Lana tomorrow. The lady tonight (with a strong enough southern accent I couldn’t understand) said she wasn’t sure about the rate other than what the computer told her.

So my beautiful bride and I were looking to make vacation plans for next year. We found a camp ground on the beach in SC that looked like a great spot to spend some time for her birthday. When we found that the only week open was the same week of ECM, she quickly said to pick another week. She didn't want me to miss ECM! I've got a beautiful bride, right?


Plus, I get my lucky number 13. Woot, woot!

You are a very lucky man unlike some of us here lol. I am going to see if my wife approves. I will probably come for the weekend.

Come early if you can. By the weekend everyone’s either burned out or pooped out or hungover or crashed. :)

The best riding is during the week. True story. :)

Me! :) Varmitcong picked me up from the airport, put me up for the night, let me drive his car to dialysis, brought us to Fontana in his truck and trailer and let me ride his hyper for the weekend. Plus, as an added bonus, took me on a completely terrifying ride to the airport!
That Varm-dude. He's alright.

Haha sounds like a great time minus the crashing.
Anyone going that lives in the northeast? Do most of you guys trailer your bikes there?

There’s a group from up that way. I’ll bet you could hook up with someone. Someone from up there will chime in.

I've been twice(#VII and IX, or was it IV,Dmitry). Trailered down from VT both times. I would like to ride down one of these times but there's usually time limitations that make trailering more viable. Dadridesagain has mentioned parking at the top of the BRP and riding down from there in the past.
In a perfect world , I would take 2 weeks, ride any twisty roads available from VT to Front Royal,VA
Take Skyline to BRP to Fontana, meet and ride with ECMers , and head back thru W.Virginia(I've heard there's great riding there as well).
The nice thing about trailering is you can pack all the stuff you may need, the weather can fluctuate greatly (had some flurries on the Cherahola at ECM VII), good to have extra layers/rain gear not limited to what you can carry on your bike...
my 2¢...
