      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.

      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.
