For anyone that might be interested in coming to the LAN and was going to be travelling along I-40 across the NC/TN border, that is not going to be possible.


A major rockslide has covered the road, and will certainly not be cleared by this weekend.

Some driving directions for taking I-40 are posted here: Link, not sure how good they would be to get to Sylva. Do some research and figure out a reasonable way, maybe U.S. 441. (no idea how straight/squirrelly that road is, though).

Also, BTW, if you're coming from the opposite direction (ie from the east of us here at Western), there is some seriously bad construction traffic on I-40 near exit 44. Please, I beg you, budget the time in so that you can take 19/23 off of exit 44 and stay straight until you get to Clyde, then stay on the road that 19/23 merges into until exit 85.
