Greetings all

It is the time of year that the leaves on the Skyline Drive (Shenandoah National Park) are 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 24.

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)

See next post for sign up details

Don't forget to GAS up BEFORE skyline?

Howdy all

Just a reminder, Skyline Drive is a VERY limited access area.

GAS UP BEFORE entering (had a few folks that forgot last year)?

Google maps of my intended route

Here is the route that I plan on following.

to: 38.357744,-78.545594 - Google Maps

After Swift Run Gap (stop E), you can continue south on Skyline for another 60+ miles (if you want to)

Or you can retrace the route back to the Front Royal entrance, but, in the interest of time, I will be exiting at Swift Run Gap and proceeding along Rt 29 back to I-66 and back to Northern Virginia.

Hope to see more folks signing up soon?

Are smart car owners from other states invited? We went to the rally in NC/Tenn last month, and loved it. If so, we would like to come to the skyline drive rally in October.

Event is open to anyone

Howdy

I don't care where you are from?
I really don't even care if you are driving something other than a smart? (I had to drive a rented Dodge last year)

Come one, come all, bring your smart, your minivan, even your RV?

Then we will plan to be there:
Ray and Sharon Richardson, MadMom, Skyline Drive, no extras
Are there motels in Front Royal, or where will you be meeting up just at the north entrance to Skyline Drive?
9:30 a.m.? We will probably drive up from NC and stay in Front Royal the night before. We will also probably keep on Skyline Drive back to North Carolina, if there are no other functions planned.
