IF YOU HAVE ALREADY REPLIED ON THE PREVIOUS THREAD/POLL YOU DON'T HAVE TO REPLY HERE.

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 20
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

(we stopped there last year, really good food)

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)

He's here as hdstrng, although his name is Adam D. He bought a black& red 4/2, yes, 1 of 120.
We're trying to get the grandkids in on this event, hdstrng is trying to get his son (and HIS smart) to come too. They live in Carrollton, Va, near us.

I ask that question every time i stop at a toll plaza. Half price toll for half a car? :laugh:
Gets the toll attendants cracking up always. I am looking forward to the run in the bat mite. After all the chaos i have been though, i can use a get away time.

... $15 per vehicle fee (sorry no half fee for smart cars I did ask) ...
Note that for those 62+ there is the possibility to apply (ID needed) for the $10 lifetime "Senior Pass" for ALL National Parks...

I don't know if it's possible to do it at the gate of the Skyline Drive, but I did it at the Grand Canyon few months back (I had stupidly forgotten mine in the car in DC!).

I won't be able to join on the drive and I may not have the smart with me, but I will try to join you guys/gals for breakfast at the Cracker Barrel. The wife and I will be on our way to Delaware and will probably be spending Friday night in the Front Royal area.

I also have our hotel booked in Stephens City right up the road and will see everyone at the Cracker Barrel. It was a free night at a Holiday Inn Express and really, where else can you "Stay Smart"? :p

At what time should the smart tube from Tysons arrive at the CB, 7:30?

It's in the logo, it must be true! :) Maybe DVI and/or Car2Go should work out a deal with Holiday Inn Express? Ok, ok, enough off topic...
