Nice, so does anyone know how many miles they put on during this trip? I figured 1320 for up and back, but idk how much we will put on when we are down there. Anyone know how much they did while they were just at the meet itself?

It all depends on how much you participate in the "cruising" vs the "hard parking" LOL...

For example the skyway to fontana dam back to the mansion is around 140 miles... but if you decide to add in the dragon a few times, hellbender... maybe clingmans dome... You'll add more lol

Or if you do the skyway twice...... It all depends on how ACTIVE you decide to be... I'd say expect an extra 250 miles give/take!

I usually burn more gas when I get there than I do getting there.

Yeah I was hoping not to put on more than 400 miles on while i was down there, but oh well I'm not gonna let extra miles hold me back from great opportunities.

We're leaving probably Wednesday night from PA. Gonna pull another Road Atlanta and just drive the straight 12 hours.

If anybody else is this crazy, you're welcome to follow.

Is that for the drive there, and home, plus driving around? That's about 10 tanks of gas... which even in my car, would be 2,000 miles LOL

Topping out a sub 200hp, 3000lb car sounds about as fun as self dentistry :P
