yeah, that looks pretty sweet. but roads are only half of the trip. If we can't get nice lodging there it wouldn't be as fun.
that 100%  ...have been saying it for years, knew that's why people wouldn't enjoy gatlinburg as much.  Another problem, that takes away from the meet aspect, with a place like gatlinburg is that there's too much to do.  Everyone splits and does there own thing....just isn't the same!

Exactly! That's why the people who stayed in the house (or came over first thing in the morning and left late at night) had the most fun at the meet... Those that do their own thing don't get the full experience!!!

yep yep...nice thing about a place like robbinsville (middle of nowhere) there's nothing else nearby to do/see/eat/whatever.  gets everyone together!

I vote for Diamondback too!

That is, if we can get another mansion.. it's all about the mansion.
I agree with brandon about Gatlinburg, it was okay, not NEARLY as great as Robinsville as far as location went. I was there a day more than this trip and still experienced nothing like this past trip.

Although after talking to Tony, Robinsville this year was full of gearheads; last year was more of the party goers. I loved the crew this year 100% more, a bunch of great people came out and it was fun.

Drinking is great and all, but nothing brings all of us together like someone crashing into a wall or almost going off a cliff and yelling Oklahoma and having stories to tell at the end of the night. More so than "catching up" and just getting smashed for no real reason.

Although I will say the fireworks battle was way more fun last year hahaha

Last year's battle was a bit overboard but worth the show LOL

I'm just glad no one got hurt! Steve and Brandon both had some seriously close calls LOL

Those fireworks battles were great! I guessed I missed the previous years lol.. I don't know too much about the roads near Gatlinburg but Clingmans dome and some of the highest points of the Smoky Mountains are close by so there has to be some fun roads. Only thing I noticed is way more tourist traffic than in Robbinsville. I think another mansion type deal would be the best, I think people who didn't stay at the mansion missed out on quite a bit. It would be nice to not stay in a dry county too lol.

Welcome Tracy, it's a great group we have here and on our FB page. We may be putting together a Dragon Camp in April. We will be camping at Cheoah Point Campground right of Hwy 129 outside Robbisnville, NC. It's a great campground close to the Dragon.

Welcome Dragon8, We are looking into several locations in western North Carolina. Any area we choose will have killer roads to drive on.

Well, I personally, am going to vote for Marion, NC... if you like the Dragon, try the what the locals call "The Devil's Whip" but commonly called, "The Devil's Staircase" (due to it's 2500 ft elevation climb uphill from Marion, NC). Highway NC 80 from Marion, NC to Micaville, NC.  Tail of the Dragon has nothing on this road. true story.

Yes, just what we need with this group of spin out and guard rail beaters... a higher difficulty setting haha.

Sounds sexy though!

Lol how do you even spin out in a FWD car?! Was that ever caught on video?

Chris was afraid of me too for whatever reason lol

Don't mind me, I'm just the lowest mz3 with a roll bar, no interior, and the widest wheels at the show! Definitely a case of possible spinouts!

Yes, was caught on in car. Skyway curve, rear wheel catches wet grass and around she goes, almost caught a guard rail. Not me, ask Brandon.
