    MATG XXII- 02-05 August 2018

    I'm thinking this year will be my first year to attend MATG in 11 years of ownership. As a newbie, does anyone have a good recommendations for places to stay? I'll likely have my truck and trailer since I'll be coming from MBTG @ AMP. Look forward to meeting some of y'all.

    VRBO or something similar. I've rented some nice homes and cabins in the area over the years.

    Usually cheaper than a hotel, too. I've rented a 3br home with hot tub that was around 125/couple/night. nice to have a place to get away from the excitement.

    Similar experiences. Get groceries in Robbinsville, rent a home, get a nice, quiet weekend with less traffic.

    That is kind of what I was thinking since I'll have a truck and trailer with me. Maneuvering in hotel parking lots is an issue normally, then you add a lot of cars and I tense up like crazy. Anyone want to split a cabin? I don't snore. haha

    Just seconding the cabin idea. I spent a week at the Gap with some motorcycle folks a number of years back, we rented a home with hot tub, HUGE garage, 4 bedrooms, lounge, for not much money per man and had a blast.

    Booked a "tiny house" between Robbinsville and The Gap for a buddy and I. Now I just need to get all my projects done.

    Staying at a small apartment building in Robbinsville through VRBO. Same place I was at last year. Nice place tucked away in a little pocket of Robbinsville. Will have a few friends staying with. Possibly have room for 1 more person if any of the MR regulars still need a place to stay. PM for details if interested.
