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 16.

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

$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)

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)

Too bad you couldn't set this for Sept 25 or Nov 11, we could get into the park for free. The National Park system has a number of free entry days and those are the last of this year.

Sept 25 is too soon, the leaves won't be changing much by then?
Nov 11 weather might be an issue (of course it was an issue in Oct last year too?)
You could set up something for your chapter on Nov 11?
Since it's a holiday, I might come join you?

was hoping to make this meet but unfortunately will be out of town for that weekend. 2nd year in a row that I'll be missing this trip.

I've heard the scenery is spectacular during that time of the year. I guess i'll be making the drive without the Smart caravan.

Hope you guys have fun!:)

Hopfully I'll be able to make it out next year.

If anyone has never been on Skyline Drive with the group it is a lot of fun, and just think of the extra color we be adding that day. :D

The first time was great we were the highlight of the scenery that day.

OK boys and girls
I just checked the weather for the 16th in Front Royal.
They are showing 75 and sunny, so it should be a great day for our skyline cruise.
