You know I've always wanted to go but never had a car I really enjoyed. But that was the past lol. Might just take some time off and take the 8 hour drive for the dragon.

Yes, I started this thread in both the Mid-Atlantic and South East section, as I figured these were the areas that were most likely to attend

Good deal.

Hopefully I can have my Kooks system, new steering wheel and rear cradle bushings installed before this trip.

I'm right there with you!

Here's some details:

"Meeting up at the Waffle House off 575 and Barrett Parkway at around 7am Saturday morning. We'll plan to leave no later than 8am so if anyone wants to sleep in stead of having breakfast they are welcome to do so. Gonna be fun. Don't forget to bring your walkies and fresh batteries. We'll be on GG8CC channel #8 of course. For those of you interested in staying over night in order to attend the TN C&O with Cody Maupin and crew let me know and we'll try to plan something together. Thanks!"

Route to Deal's Gap the GA crew will be taking:

My favorite drive in the Eastern US!! Just tons of LEO's, and unforgiving if you can't make a corner. Wish I could make it.
