We hit the dragon today around 1PM on our way back from the Boo Run in Gatlinburg. Very little traffic, and the few cars we came up on all pulled over for us. The good news is that the foothills parkway, dragon, and cherohala skyway were all 100% LEO free. I hope you guys have the same luck next week!

We might head up for a day or two of the dragon run if this week isn't too insane. Save a couple of Dragon Burgers for us

Whoops, need to fix that.

We're 25 miles NE of Atlanta, so it's a pretty quick trip up.

Thanks for reminding me! I've got to rotate the tires on Red Dwarf if we're going to take him. Blooper needs an alignment since I swapped the rear control arms, so either way I've got to get off my butt and get ready

w00t! just got back a bit ago. Had a blast even tho I missed the photo at the dam ( directions to the spot left a bit to be desired, especially for someone who'd never been there before) We (wife n I) did eventually find thd photo spot by the Helo landing pad and got a few of our own. Saw some deer and turkeys while doing the Dragon first thing in the morning (very foggy and fun) no one on it but a couple of Miatas and some crotchrockets. Got a couple of good runs in, did the Hellbender and the Skyway also, so we had a blast! The Canucks were alot of fun and very dedicated to make a 14hr trip! Great Brew Swap, I made it home with a couple of new ones. All in all, a great time, good to put a face to some names and we're looking forward to May.

We hit 10K on the odometer on the way home today. I'm pretty sure the car only had 5K on it when we left Atlanta Friday evening

The tires and brakes are long gone, but the smiles live on !!!

Cherie is working on getting the pictures ready to post.

Photos! We need photos!! You people were good enough to kill the dragon this weekend; we need to see more photos!

From what I see so far some of the photos look great and lots of fog.. did you try approaching the dragon at night with all that fog?

Hopefully there'll be some slayin' left for us in May
