I plan to meet a friend there and drive it with my R. Gotta test the ipd anti-sway bars and Michelin Pilot Super Sports! Care to join me?

I probably won't arrive until Thursday afternoon, then drive it Thursday until nightfall and again all day Friday along with the surrounding roads...Cherohala Skyway, Moonshiner 28, etc.

Here's my friend's video compilation of last year's trip. His BRZ and my S2000. The weather was perfect! Low 70s and sunshine. Hopefully, there will be more of the same this time around.

Be aware of TN State Police/Sheriffs on the approach from the west if thats your ingress route. If you have a copliot, make sure they have a map of the turns as some are trick entrances and having them called out ahead of time can prevent a brown pants moment. Most of all, enjoy!

I'll be in the area tomorrow. Taking my wife up to the Cherahola Skyway, will be stopping in places along the way for hiking and other things. We aren't there just for the driving, but I'll probably drive the Dragon once or twice along the way. It gets crowded at times and I'll be driving better roads just getting there anyway. Maybe we'll run into each other. Have fun and enjoy!

Day one is in the books. Beautiful weather. Great friend (with his Lexus IS). Not much traffic.

^yes, we had tons of fun. Sorry you couldn't make it.

Met theTierce and we chatted. It was a short conversation, but I am glad we met. Congratulations on your anniversary! (p.s., the older guy in the Mustang convertible was checking out your R)


A view from the cherohala skyway.


Another view. We made 4 runs of the skyway. Virtually no traffic. Sunshine. Upper 60s. Colors. Epic.

With you guys in spirit! Loved that drive down 28 and the Tail back in 2012 when we went.

There are so many roads that resemble tail of the dragon that have fewer cars and less strict law enforcement... Have fun!
