CANCELLED 2014 Skyline Drive cruise (7th Annual) Saturday NOVEMBER 1, 2014

2014 Skyline Drive cruise (7th Annual) Saturday NOVEMBER 1, 2014
________________________________________
Greetings boys and girls

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

For the past 6 years, I have headed a smart tour and we had a bunch of fun.

Planning on doing it again this year.
PLEASE GAS UP BEFORE YOU JOIN US, OTHERWISE YOU HOLD UP THE WHOLE GROUP?

If you have FRS radios please bring them so we can chat along the drive?
HEY! look at the BEAR ! ! !”

[B]Saturday NOVEMBER 1, 2014
Depart from Tyson's Corner smart center at 6:30AM
(If you get there at 6:40, you are on your own)

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

There is a gas station by Cracker Barrel, PLEASE fill up BEFORE we leave?

Meet & Eat at Cracker Barrel (reservations under “SMART CLUB”)
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, potty breaks and lots of pics.

(IF you can only join us for part of the run you can exit at Thornton Gap Station at mile marker 31.5)

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

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

(we stopped there last 2 yearS, really good food)

After lunch the cruise is officially ended. you can go antiquing, battleground sightseeing, or just go home?

NO, you don’t HAVE to be in a smart. You can drive in anything you want.

Might have to miss this one, Elaine has a "Ladies Craft Day" event that day (every 1st Saturday of November) and we have a church fall festival Oct 31, which will make for a late night. We might have do our own run the week before.

I'll be in the area picking a friend up but the flight into Dulles comes in at around 9 am, so...

Would have been nice to take Chewawa to the cruise!

I'd love to come down (if Wallace would have me ).
Unfortunately, I won't be able to make it this time.

Y'all have fun!

I'm sure it would be a blast. The bigger challenge is fitting it into our hectic schedule... Have to keep brainstorming about this!

All are welcome.

EVEN if you won't be in a smart, you can come.
