We're driving from the Fort Myers, FL area to Robbinsville, NC on Fri, Oct 26. Then spending a couple days cruising mountain roads, looking at fall foliage, and returning to FL on Mon, Oct 29. (Peggy has no school Friday or Monday).

Anyone interested in meeting us near the Smokies, TN / NC border area? We'll be staying in th Microtel in Robbinsville.

If you respond to this post, I'll pm my cell phone #, or you can leave a message for Marge Norsworthy at the Microtel (828-479-6772).

Dragon?? What Dragon??
OH.... the one the cops are all over right now!!

Me?? Li'l ole me, run the twisties as fast as I can?
Not til the cops leave em alone!!

We might run the Dragon Monday before heading home, but I really don't want a ticket from the swarms of cops that are on it during the weekends now, so our weekend drive will be leisurely. I'm thinking of trying the Rt 28 curves over the weekend... last time I was there, it was raining too hard to push at all.

Actually, we came across the Dragon (N to S) on the way home from Fest in the rain... saw 2 cars & 2 wild turkeys! I've never seen wild turkeys so close before - it was neat. Unfortunately, they proved as smart as wild turkeys are supposed to be: while our car was moving they each ignored us, but as soon as we stopped for a photo op, the turkey took off.

The travelers rest sc to brevard nc route looks neat on the map, I think we'll add that to our north-bound route. We ran the Blue Ridge Parkway a couple years ago, going from Robbinsville, NC to Asheville, NC the long way around. It was fun & the tunnels were neat!
