Dodging the Roadkill: The Hub in Robbinsville North Carolina

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyRobbinsville, NC – In my most recent trip to the amazing Smoky Mountains, my travel partner and I stayed in Robbinsville, North Carolina.  We’ve stayed in various different areas surrounding the mountains, and basically we’re looking for good value and price, so we landed here for this trip.

Just down the road, not even 100 yards, we discovered The Hub.  We were VERY satisfied at what we found.  Here’s the back story:

Five years ago, Greg McCoy was running a VERY successful motorcycle rental business.  A friend of his approached him about getting into the restaurant business.  Greg HATES to cook, but the two of them ventured on and The Hub was created.  It started as a coffee shop, but that didn’t last long.

Dodging the Roadkill: Pop’s Travel Center

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyLacon, AL – Along Interstate 65, between Huntsville and Birmingham Alabama, just off exit 318, sits a welcome site.  Pop’s Travel Center.  It’s the only business at this exit and it’s well worth the visit.

I discovered this place quite by accident.  

While riding my Harley back home to Tennessee last year, I was getting “drowsy” and had a bit of an appetite, so the next exit, 318, I pulled off to take a break.

I was greeted by a Stuckeys and a family restaurant.  Having grown up visiting Stuckeys when we traveled,  it was a welcome site.
