Sorry, I won't be joining you: as a retiree I will do it during the week when it's not that crowded.
BTW: 62+ get a NPS Senior Pass.
Quote:
America the Beautiful – National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Pass – Senior Pass

Cost: $10
Lifetime pass for U.S. citizens or permanent residents age 62+
Provides access to, and use of, all national parks and Federal recreation sites that charge an entrance/standard amenity fee
Pass may be used for passengers in a non-commercial vehicle (at vehicle entrances), or for pass holder plus 3 adults at per person fee areas
Provides a 50% discount on some amenity fees
Non-transferable and generally does not cover special recreation permit fees
Purchase: In person at the park.
It'll pay for itself with one single entry to the Skyline, or two visits to Great Falls...

Tomorrow is the day.

Remember to GAS UP before we start on skyline drive

Check your tire pressure, Brake fluid, coolant and oil
(always a good idea before heading out on any trip)

Make sure your camera if FULLY charged (and has space availabe)?

After departing SKYLINE at Swift Run Gap, I am planning on doing lunch at
C & S Diner in ELKTON, VA (about 7 miles from Swift Run Gap park entrance)

You are welcome to follow me there.

Then I will be taking I-81 north to I-66 to return to Northern Virginia.

I will have maps available for anyone that needs them
smart center to cracker barrel, cracker barrel to skyline, skyline to C&S diner, C&S Diner to smart center.
