2011 Skyline Drive EVENT Sat Oct 15

2011 Skyline Drive EVENT Sat Oct 15

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Greetings boys and girls (and anyone else)

It is the time of year that the leaves on the Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park) will be changing to wonderful colors.

Last year, I headed a smart tour and we had a bunch of fun.

Planning on doing it again this year.

Saturday Oct 15.

Depart from Tyson's Corner smart center at 6:30AM

"smart tube" (convoy) to Cracker Barrel Restaurant (15 Riverton Commons Plz
Front Royal, VA 22630-6768)

Meet at Cracker Barrel
7:30 - 9:00AM

Depart Cracker Barrel 9:00AM

smart tube to Skyline NORTH entrance

Meet at Skyline Drive NORTH entrance 9:30AM (closest intersection for GPS) S Royal Ave & E Criser Rd, Front Royal, VA 22630

If you are meeting the group here, WAIT for us by the Skyline Sign JUST after you turn off the Highway.

$15 per vehicle fee (sorry no half fee for smart cars I did ask)

Travel thru Skyline Drive periodically stopping for overlooks and potty breaks and lots of pics.

exit Skyline drive at Swift Run Gap (65 miles about mid point of the drive)

Go somewhere for lunch. I am wide open to suggestions.

WARNING: If there are 20 (or more) vehicles, we will be required to split into smaller groups and have 15 min between groups (we will plan on that when we have to)

See next post for sign up details

Sounds awesome, we went back in July.

Will have to see if the Misses will drive an hour with me to get to the starting point by 6:30am.

None of my business because I am in Missouri, and can't attend, even though I would love to. But my philosophy is that "nothing good ever happens after midnight and nothing important ever happens before noon".

6:30 am is mighty early even for a farmer. I hope that when I am able to participate in the MOKAN events here in the midwest, they have a more realistic start time! LOL

I do hope you get a good turn out though. I'd like to see the whole smart family get active in their regional groups.

Actual start time is 9:30AM at skyline.

Some folks will drive up the night before and stay overnight in Front Royal, Va.
But, I like early starts, so I lead the parade from the smart center to Cracker Barrel at 6:30, then Breakfast, then on to Skyline and meet up with everyone else.

My wife & I live about 3 hours from Front Royal so 6 AM start time is natural. PS I'm at work 5 days a week by 6 anyway.
