Friday Morning cruise anyone?
« on: May 11, 2010, 09:35:17 PM »
I plan on going out Friday morning starting around 8 am. I want to drive over the mountain with a stop at Newfound Gap, proceeding to Fontana Dam for another stop. Next to the Tail of the Dragon, down and back with a run up to the top of the Skyway and back and then home to Gatlinburg. This will be a long drive and will require most of the day. I'm hoping for someone very familiar with the area to lead, if not I will.
 
Plan on taking snacks and drinks and have a full tank of gas. We will stop several times for photos and fun like we did last year.
 
The drive up and over the mountains will be a slow and easy drive with a stop at Newfound gap, the park police are not very tolerant and the road is usually heavily monitored.
 
Then over to Fontana Dam for a snack and photos before we rip up the Tail of the Dragon. I want to go down the Tail stopping in the large parking area by the lake were we did last year for photos before returning down the Tail and catching the Skyway. Up the skyway till we summit and then turn around and head back to Gatlinburg.
 
I'm open to suggestions from anyone. The long Loop we did last year may take too long from Gatlinburg.
 
What does everyone think?

hay scott is your wife and kid going with you on the trip or are they going to stay in town and window shop?  I was planning on doing a run to the dragon at least fri and if any of the girls (riders) didnt want to go it was perfect time for shopping.

I'll probably run if this happens, I'll try not to slow you guys down too much.

EDIT: aww damn, I completely missed that this would be Friday morning and not Saturday. I'm definitely not good for this then.

Everyone meet at the facility right off 441 just after you enter the park, leaving gatlinburg.. Little River rd on the right. There is a facility there with lots of parking. Meet there at 8 am Friday morning.
 
Cruise up to Newfound Gap with a stop there, then head to Fontana Dam with another stop at the dam. Then from there head over to the Dragon. Someone familiar with the area should lead. Leaving Fontana Dam you should get in the order that you want to go down the Tail of the Dragon, fast movers up front.
