      For all those in NC who are attending Wookiees in the Woods, Jausley and i are caravanning over to Fontana Dam on Friday 4/20 and would welcome anyone else who wants to join the procession.

      Here is the tentative plan. We can meet up with others any where along this route.
      April 20
      8:30 AM - 9 AM Assemble at Graham, NC
      9 AM - Get on the road towards Asheville
      12:30 to 1 PM Congregate at 12 Bones for Lunch (5 Riverside Drive Asheville NC, 28801)
      ~1 to 2:00 PM Lunch
      2:30 PM Get on the road towards Fontana Village

      I've got a few high range walkie talkies, and would encourage others to bring them as well.

      View Larger Map

      PM me or reply if you're interested to figure out details.

      List:
      1. Slidemx5 (rob)
      2. Jsausley (jordan)
      3. ex2k
      4. AAC Welder
      5. Gotsol
      6. RepulsiveSalvation (meeting us at lunch in asheville)

      Let me know who else is coming so we'll know who to wait for when the time comes!

      Stole this from the longball rally guys, but figured I'd post it.


      >>>That being said, don't be an a$$hat. Cruise speeds will be give or take around the speed limit.
      There will be NO racing, reckless driving, or excessive speeding tolerated. If you can't understand this or violate the posted warning, you may be asked to break off from the group and continue separately on your own.

      We're not doing more than 10 over on the way down, don't need any unwanted attention.

      This is the tentative plan for those interested. Leave Graham around 9am Friday 4/20 and get to Asheville in time for a 12:30-1pm lunch. Then on to Fontana Dam. More details to follow as I've confirmed them.

      I'll pick up a set of long-range walkie-talkies when we get a bit closer to the launch date. Found a few fairly cheap sets on Amazon.

      I just reserved my room for Friday and Saturday and will be coming in from Raleigh. I'd like to meet up with you guys. Does anyone have an extra walkie-talkie I can borrow?

      This is my 6th Dragon run and third with the R32 group!

      I will be running in an 08 Cayman S this year.

      I'm getting a new head unit installed with GPS (pioneer avic 140bt) next week. I can't wait to use it on the trip.

      We're meeting at my work. The name of the business is Ausley's Chevelle Parts. Here are some details:

      Address:

      300 S. Main St.
      Graham, NC 27253

      ARRIVING FROM RALEIGH, you will get off of I-85/40 on exit 147 and head north towards Graham (that's a right turn ). You will pass McDonald's on your right and CVS/Walgreens farther up. We're less than one mile from the interstate on the right on the corner of Main St. and McAden St.

      We're right across from a Shell station, so that would be a great place to get supplies and fuel up. There's also a Biscuitville less than a block away (you passed it on the way) if you want to wait and great breakfast there.

      We'll probably congregate in the front parking lot of the store. Be cautious of the driveway entrace - it's a steep lip, and you will drag if you do not enter at an angle (especially important if your car is lowered). It's not a huge parking lot but there should be room for 5-6 cars. If we need more space we can congregate at the Shell station across the street.

      My travel buddy and I are really looking forward to Friday and meeting all of you!

      Oh, and I forgot to mention! I would suggest at this point or sometime this week, if you want to, that you give your name and phone number to Rob or myself just so we can contact you in the event that you are late or we are late or something happens. Just to be sure. Optional of course.

      So there happens to be a brewery in Sylva, NC that produces German-style beer... and judging by the map (we literally drive right through, Exit 83 off of 23/74 and less than 1 mile from the exit) and the fact that the Fontana Lodge is in a dry county... Perhaps we could consider a brief pit stop around that area to pick up a growler or two?
