Looking like rain this weekend. There is also a large motorcycle gathering going on in the dragon area. Big hot rod show in pigeon forge also this weekend. There may be alot of traffic on our route this weekend. I know its late but would you consider next weekend instead?Just let me know.

There are huge car shows both this weekend and next. Shades Of Past and The Grand Rod Run. Thousands of hotrods decend on the area. You will likely want to avoid Pigeon Forge.

Sunday we're going into the mountains. I'm thinking of you this year Miguel, we get to the top of the mountain around 10am, for a big working mans country breakfast! Not that the gas station Pizza wasn't good last year...I'm still learning from my mistakes.

Speaking of mountains ..... the Pre-Palooza was a blast!



Running above the clouds ....



A little Pre-Palooza tunnel action .....



The usual suspects ....

Awesome shots Paul!!!!!!!!!!! and awesome ride - wet ride... very wet ride. I'm still amazed how those cars handled in such diluge condtions.

I see that turning around worked out great, that shot of your car says it all.

Thank you and Duke for the planing. Great time as always!

And yes Pete, this year will be both days - guaranteed.

Here ya go ... a little deluge video. When you consider that was freshly laid asphalt and it was still a little 'greasy' ... I agree ... these cars are champs...

The backtrack for the glamour shot was worth it but....... in typical Pelican fashion I neglected to take the art shot (without the car).

Some Pre-Palooza exhaust music .... this was at the base of a 18 mile climb up the mountain. It seemed we had the entire mountain to ourselves for the day. Completely uninterupted runs up and down.
