You'll need to check with the organizer, wrumbarger, but my guess is there will be one this year also.

YES there will be a Skyline Drive Cruise for 2013.

Date will depend on what Nat Park Svc tells us is "Optimal Leaf Peeping" time.
Usually Late Oct/Early Nov.

Details to follow, announcements on this forum, smartusainsider, and facebook.

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)

Lunch at Welcome
Log Cabin Barbecue
11672 Spotswood Trail
Elkton, VA 22827
