Dragons tail?
That's got to be the best road I have ever been on. If I didn't put my car away already I would join you. I plan on going next spring though with a couple of other cars.

You're 200-miles from Nashville, so I'll pass on the invite, however, you're going to have some cool roads to carve up in East Tennessee.

Have a great trip.

oh wait I might want to attend. All I would need to do is reinstate my insurance. Let me know details such as dates, times, are you staying the night?

SR944, I'll be up there this coming Sunday. I guess I'll be at the tail around 2 or 3 in the afternoon. I won't be staying the night, I'm just planning on playing all day, then driving home when it gets dark...

macreel - check out www.tailofthedragon.com the road I'm heading to is US129. I'll be going through Georgia up GA60.

I won't be able to join you for the cruise. I was involuntarily volunteered to work on Saturday. I wouldn't have enough time to get some Z's then drive down.

Next spring I am planning on going to slay the Dragon. I am trying to organize some friends to go down with me. Maybe we could meet then and go for a cruise.

There are folks from Wisconsin that do the 12 hour drive just to ride the Dragon. I am one of them. It is so worth it.

ilike.... thnx for the info. How about that road north and east of the Dragons Tail from Gatlinburg to Cherokee, through the park?
That appears to be a nice ride. Through Newfound Gap, US441?

Can't make this one, a little far away. But I'll be going to school 30 minutes south of Nashville next year, let's meet up and go sometime then.

Hey Pearl - haven't talked to you in a while... that sounds like a good idea!
