Oct 20 Skyline Drive VA Fall Foliage

Invite is for all smart cars & a driver with or without a copilot as per past foliage rides.

Northern folks would meet or eat breakfast at the Front Royal, Va Cracker Barrel restaurant, 15 Riverton Commons Plaza, Front Royal, VA 22630, at 9 AMish and will leave at 10:30 AMish to Skyline Drive & drive their way south to Rt 33, mile marker 65 or until we meet.

Like our friends in the north, the southern folks would meet or eat breakfast at the Exit 94 on I-64 Waynesboro Cracker Barrel,101 Apple Tree Ln, Waynesboro, VA 22980 at 9AMish, & leave at 10:30 AMish to exit 99 of I-64, Afton, VA for access to Skyline Drive & drive their way north to Rt 33, mile marker 65 or until we meet.

Lunch for both north & south folks would meet & eat at 1:30 PMish at the Log Cabin BBQ https://www.logcabinbarbecue.com/ on Rt 33 west of Skyline Drive at the bottom of the "hill" and then everyone is free to find their way home.

To include the numbers from Facebook's USA Smart Car Club & Smart Cars of America, 3 are currently coming from the south and 4 from the north. Looking like a good turn out.

Now the big choice , should we bring our 451 Brabus or the 453 LORINSER ? If the weather is cool and clear , the cabrio will be the choice , wet and foggy , hardtop time .

This may be one of the last low snow/ice threat rides of the season. 1stiski....... bring the whole herd, all three. The Misses could row her own, You make your choice, and a third trusted pilot can soft shoe the last one. Hell swap at the gas stop Three way phone call the whole ride would be a blast. One of those memories you will remember whit smiles and conversations for a long time to come.... and a great photo shoot opportunity to boot.

Hey you, Whats up. Its been a great year for the Harlem Edition. We are in. So see you in a couple of weeks. If 1stiski does run his whole herd I will drive to his place and run down with the pack. Like last year I intend to sprint back to NYC after the the vittles are round in my belly. Got my self a decent camera this year should be a good time indeed.

Remember we are the more intelligent drivers.... because "We Intentionally Drive SMART".

Wish I could join you, but Sunday(s) I have to be at my church.
Maybe next year (on a Saturday)?

Looks like we are taking the 451 Brabus for the ride .. also toting along the little pooch because our critter sitter is in FL on vacation . So our dining inside establishments has changed unfortunately. We will still be eating with the group , but outside instead . At least we found plenty of pet friendly places to sleep at .
