Here is our map and stops as well as the shirt design for this year. The map may say 2013, but it is for 2014. :drunken:

If you have not registered yet you can do it Friday night if you can find us Cool or Saturday morning starting at 9:00 am in the Best Western parking lot. We will start the run shortly after 10:00 am.

First stop is Fender's Diner, so bring your lunch money. Very Happy

I know the forecast is for rain here and there, but seldom does it last long. Every mountain we crest has a different weather system happening so don't let that keep you away. Even wet we will have a blast!

Hey Hobug, how was the run?
Up, up the long, delirious, burning blue, I’ve topped the wind-swept heights with easy grace. Where never lark, or even eagle flew. And, while with silent, lifting mind I've trod, The high untrespassed sanctity of space, Put out my hand, and touched the face of God.

It was great! We had twenty VWs and the rain showers were few and far between. I'll post some pictures soon.

We were running a little short on time so most of us skipped the DQ in Hiawassee and went on to Jake Raby's shop.

Yes, if you haven't been there since 2002 the additions are many. Two new buildings, new equipment, fewer VWS, pavement, landscaping...........
