Fall Drive in NC 10/16

Ok, from what I've heard from most, 10/16 looks like the date. Anybody wanna go? Lots of twisties to be had for a tire and sway bar test fest. Directions to the start point to follow. This isn't limited to waterpumpers only, come on, enjoy the fun!

If you're headed anywhere close to US 129 & don't mind an "Audi/VW" tagging along, drop me a line!

Also, many WNC roads suffered damage from the recent rains, including much of the Blue Ridge Parkway, I suggest checking in at www.tailofthedragon.com/index.html for current road conditions.

The Dragon is only 45-50 mins from home & I would love to run with other P-cars!!!

This drive will start in Stokes County, north of Winston Salem and wind around through the hills and into Surry County. In case you aren't familiar with the area, the start point is just 30 minutes from the Blue Ridge Parkway, although that access point is actually in Virginia. Also, Stokes and Surry Counties are in the foothills of the Blue Ridge Mountains, Tail of the Dragon is ok, but about 4 hours from here and we have about as many twisty roads here as there, just nowhere near as much traffic

We'll depart from the Rural Hall Post Office at 9am, try to be there between 8:30 and 9. To get to the Rural Hall PO, take US 52 north past Winston Salem to the Rural Hall exit. At the top of the ramp, turn right. Go about 2 miles into Rural Hall. At the light, turn left. Cross the RR tracks and the Post Office is on the right. There is a small shopping center next to the Post Office, but their parking lots adjoin. We'll meet up there and leave out about 9. The drive will take about 3 1/2 hours and will cover about 110 miles of back roads in Stokes and Surry counties. The route includes sections of Hwys 66&89 and 268. Most of the rest is back roads, I'll have handouts with area maps and a route description for everyone. Hope to see y'all there!

Just to put it back up near the top-

Weather is looking to be great this weekend, wasserpumpers and aircooleds are very welcome. If your P car is laid up, you're still welcome. This run is over 110 miles of twisty stuff through the foothills of the Blue Ridge. Hope to see some of you guys on Saturday!
