      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.

      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?

      Good to see you again Mike. Let me know when you are heading to Wilmington.

      Where did you get pulled over?

      Can't wait for this!

      For anyone in NC who is interested in coming:

      http://www.facebook.com/groups/325877767495270/?fref=ts

      http://www.facebook.com/events/263974040375422/

      Probably going to have about 10 cars in the caravan this year.

      I'm sure slidemx5 will have some more details regarding when and where we're meeting and where we might be stopping along the way in a few weeks, once the official WITW threads get posted up.
