Thumbs up Time & Location

Let's plan on meeting at 7am on Sunday, at the Krystal on Lovell Road...

410 Lovell Rd, Knoxville, TN 37934-1909

We'll head off toward 129S at 7:30am, drive through the Dragon, and stop just over the TN border, in NC, at the Deal's Gap Motorcycle Resort.

After a break for chotchkies and a reverent gaze at the Tree of Shame, we can make a group decision on what to do after that.
  • We could take 28 over to the Fontana Dam, where we can make another pit stop.
  • Or continue on 129 and head over to 143, ending up at the Cherohala Skyway (165).

  • Or simply turn around, run through the Dragon a 2nd time, and take the long way back to Knoxville, through the Foothills Parkway.
Fontana Dam is a nice site, but a little out of the way. The Cherohala Skyway is a very scenic drive, but sometimes unpredictible, as far as the weather is concerned (last year we saw snow!). Driving through the Dragon twice is always fun, and on the way back the photographers might be out, since it'll be later in the morning.

I'm flexible.

See you all this weekend!
