Sprinpalooza/Fallpalooza schedule???

The sole purpose of this thread is to pressure Justin and Gabe to set the schedule for the next palooza event.... I've got the itch for some turbo charged driving , drinking and tail chasing fun...

Did hear rumblings of Vegas ?? Come on guys!!!
Everyone else chime in with some ideas... Let's set some dates!

fall Okturbofest is held in Greensboro, NC. Summer turbopalooza is in France based around LeMans Classic. I think thats the basic itinerary.

Fall foilage in Vermont...Leaf-peeping-palooza.

Vermont has fantastic twisties, beautiful mountain vistas, and only a handful of state troopers on duty at any given moment

Appalachian Gap...Route 17 goes over the spine of the green mountains here:


On any Sunday...motorcycles flock to the Gap from miles around:


In the "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont - Lake Willoughby:

Vermont would be great I've taken the porsche and my bike up through the App gap and the NEK. Up by the islands they don't even have a police dept, its just 1-2 sheriffs who are randomly on patrol up there.

Maybe.

When I first went by Lake Willoughby on my Ducati at speed, I almost drove off the road because the scenery was so breathtaking, that I forgot myself and what I was doing for a split second...at speed that split second can be the difference between pavement and guard rail.

The roads in Vermont and the lack of Johnny Law is what kept me there for 10 years.

I sort of know the area, I went to prep school in NH and my wife went to Dartmouth, suffice it to say that New England has some beautiful scenery.
