If we decide to do Natahala this year, I'll pick you up some.

Maybe next year or the year after, I should be joining trying to revise my teg back to life.

About time I can now apply for Historic Tags for my GS/VTEC Automatic and no more SMOG

So, any ideas for activities this year anyone?

There are the obvious options, such as the Thursday or Friday beer swap.

Drunk kickball against the CRZ guys is always a must. Do we have any fire pit or field access this year @MorningZ ?

Delicious pulled pork at the Dragon Pitt.

A personal favorite visiting place of mine is the Dragon Hill Climb, which I plan to vist. https://goo.gl/maps/JUFCBi9rNo52 (For some reason I can't use any options to make links and such. All of the buttons are broken.)

A majority of us skipped the Skyway Run last year I believe. I'd like to go this year to make up for that.

let's see some ideas!

I'm gonna get thrown under a bus for this, but... I prefer the Skyway. It's much less crowded, longer, sweepier curves, not as many po-po's and views!!!
Don't get me wrong, the Dragon is far better for thrashing the car around, but just chilling on a good cruise, it's got it's benefits.

I still haven't visited the Hill Climb thing.

Why do you feel you would you get thrown under the bus for that? It's alright to have an opinion.

the Hill Climb is a little south of Tapoco Lodge on 129 (in Joyce Keller Park) and is a fun road that winds up a mountain and ends at the top (where there is a turnaround). It's a fun road, but gravel-ey. the Road to Nowhere in Bryson City is very similar.

I and many others would agree with you in some respects. The Dragon is terrible during the day time when all of the tourists and traffic are coming through. In my opinion, it's best in the early morning hours, and my personal favorite, at night.

It's not terrible during the day, a lot many people say that but it's really not that bad. I've had plenty of mid day Saturday runs with no interruptions. Just luck of the draw. I like how killboy has been putting road condition posts lately, haven't seen a "busy" post yet although I'm sure I miss some.

Do me a favor.From now on don't care what other people think about your car. Do what YOU want to your car. Who gives a damn what other people think about it.

That'll coincide with the end of my honeymoon, so I'll see if I can convince the wife to swing through on the drive home. I'll be represented regardless because I'm selling one of my Integras to Justine so you'll have at least one Matador Red hooptie out there.

I have a chance to rent a cabin for the time I'm down there. I will be arriving Tuesday night and leaving Sunday afternoon. Is there anyone that doesn't already have a place to stay that needs one?

Because time is short, I need an answer by the end of the weekend. Otherwise, I'll have to give it up and room with a couple of friends instead, which isn't a big deal. The more people that stay, the cheaper the cabin is. If you're indecisive, now is the time to make your decision! I promise you won't regret going if you decide to!
