I may be able to get my first taste of western NC hitching a ride to a dog show at Fontana Village, Robbinsville in April of next year. What should be expecting in the way of weather, bug repellant, gorgeous scenery, etc.?

Expect it to be beautiful. Spring in NC always is. No bugs any time of the year unless you are at the coast. April can have warm days and chilly nights (down to the low 30's even) in the mountains. Come on down

Definitely gorgeous scenery. We were there last .. September, IIRC. The days were warm once the sun came up, but it was chilly in the early mornings, so take a jacket. It seems that spring comes a little later, and fall a little sooner than the lower elevations.

Robbinsville is a small town; I think there are just a few hotels and restaurants there? From the talk you hear on the motorcycle boards, I had thought it would have been bigger, more touristy. It's a nice little place.

If you have time, check out the Cherohala Skyway over to Tellico Plains. You want scenery? You get scenery. Very breathtaking. And it will be early enough in the season that there might not be a lot of bikers. The kids on crotchrockets don't seem to take their bikes out until it is warm enough to wear T-shirts, shorts, and flip-flops when they ride
