Enjoy meeting other members and experience some incredible driving in groups around the Smokey Mountains.
This get-together (GTG) is for drivers of all skill levels and driving interests.
Route leaders will be taking individual groups on daily routes that vary from a relaxing drive in the mountains, to those that might make some passengers (and even DRIVERS) hold on tight.

IF you have never been to the Dragon or if you have not been to the Dragon in a few years, please review these threads:

Cheryl
Jacksonville FL
Thurs-Mon

Please private message me some feedback on run looking to do with Diana this year - early so we can make changes. Dont have to stop at all these places (GPS routing points). Picnic lunch along way ...
Fontana Dam to Sunburst Falls via 215 .... hop on Blue Ridge Pwky to Graveyard Fields-Looking Glass Rock Overlook - Log Hollow Overlook- pick up 276 Looking Glass Falls (stop for sure) - head north 276 to Soco Falls (?) and either hop on Blue Ridge again or take 19 to Casino/SPA then head back (will be getting dark).
A little long and can easily be shortened by skipping some or re-routing. Hoping for some feedback from Spring as well.

I'm excited to see all of the posts from all of you who will be coming.
Note.... I will be updating the list of attendees every evening when I am at home on my computer and following this thread daily.
We have a whole summer ahead of us but still very much looking forward to this Fall event and coming in my new 6 Speed Roadster 😎
