I need some date suggestions so I can put up a poll.

Remember, we like them late in the Spring, early Summer. Too early in Spring and it is still cold, too late in Summer and it is too crowded.

We want to make it easily accessible for the folks still in school.

If any of our sponsors are interested in something, I think we may try getting some t-shirts up this year. We have had shirts in the past, and several of our site sponsors have shown up, but this year I might try something different.

Remember, this is a free event, and as always we expect a high turnout. Take that into consideration.

Discuss!

*EDIT*

The date was voted one. May 19th and 20th.

Now, where are we staying?

Since I am not in school, I have no input for the date. The only thing I will say, is that it is better for me if the date is set in stone before the end of the year. We put in all of our vacation requests at the beginning of January, so I need to know as soon as possible to have dibs on days off.

On a side note, I could help with t-shirts!

I'm going to third that. I have my internships start in January and go through late June, so getting the time off will be extremely difficult if I don't tell them as soon as I start. In fact, I probably wont get the time off if I don't tell them at the beginning of the year. Other than that, I'm free from mid April to mid June.

I dont want this at the end of may this year if it can be helped. Its so much better if we can do it toward the beginning. Even those couple weeks seem to really make a difference in the weather down there. Im pushing for a 2nd weekend sort of thing. Not a last weekend sort of thing.

To be honest, Id LOVE last weekend of april. But all you fucking school pantywaists would complain.

I have a kid now. So the end of May would be best. Unless I come alone. If that is the case maybe someone can fly into Jackson and ride up with me. We can split the cost of a hotel room. Gas is on me.

I see no problem with this, especially if we take two cars. One car may be a bit cramped. However, if the meet was May 12th-13th, would your car be back together then? That's only 2-3 more weeks, and it's not like you'd be home (ATL) during that time to fix it...

Probably not. I'm aiming for being home for a few weeks (maybe) late in the summer... but I'm not sure yet.. It all depends on how next semester pans out for when I decide to take classes... but with the internship running through June, I might as well just stay and take classes then so that I actually get some sort of break later on. so the car will get fixed at some point.. but I'm not sure when....

i do, and a father that owns an auto repairs shop... but that's not the point. I want to do the swap mahself. If mah dad does it, he's putting another 7a in... if I do it (with help of course)... its getting a much better engine and a manual conversion (as go the plans so far). But it all hinges on my spring loan money to get the parts and whatnot. Besides, Justin knows i'd be mad if i came home to a car i didn't get to do any work to

so in short, I'm stubborn and am willing to wait to get it done how I want :)

Just saw this thread. Me and john were talking about this meet and I think we should change the location of where we stay. I went to the R32 meet last year and they stay at Fontana Village. This is the best choice for staying together and also getting the most driving done in the 2 days. The other choice that is decent is robbinsville, nc.

We would probably want to book the rooms ASAP. like in a month or less. Early-mid may is prime AT thru hiking season and the lodge will be packed with thru hikers most likely. Plus it's just a popular place that time of year. Also im not sure that the management there will be too keen on our crew partying all night.

I'd vote for Robbinsville for hotels. Camping is easy. Almost every pulloff on the skyway is a trailhead where one could walk in and camp. There is a campground not far from deals gap off 28. And I know a spot north of Robbinsville that is awesome for anyone willing to drive their car on a gravel forest service road.

^You would be wrong about that one...


The Fontana Village is great for partying. Better than the hotel even. There is a bar or you can bring your own booze. We stayed up past 1am most nights. We drove the dragon til 3am one morning and came in with no complaints by the staff. This place is made for car meets. They even have parking lots that we can park and chat in. The only down side is if its too expensive for some people. But with the cabins being large enough for at least 6 people then after the cost is split then its not bad. We would need to book our rooms in January at least. I dont remember when we booked ours this year but it was 3 months in advance I think.

Fontana is Bear friendly

I like the idea of Fontana Village, and I'd be down for that or the Holiday Inn again (provided that Dusty doesn't get us in trouble at the bar again), but we still need to set a date. I checked the availability at Fontana Village, and their calendar shows "scarce availability" for the fist weekend in May (6th-7th), so that wouldn't be good for us with a big group.

With bugs' new info I'd vote for the village. I'm always down to camp too.

I'm cool with april but remember it can be really cold still. It can be 20 at night or it might be 60 at night. Early spring is a crap shoot in the smokies. It's also very wet that time of year. And there is the unlikely chance that the skyway will be frosty. Just keep that in mind especially if you're planning on sleeping outside.

I'm not going to drag a tent with me. I prefer to build a lean-to with a tarp. A nice fire, food on the fire, beer, and some horrible guitar playing.

Nice. I'm an ultralight backpacker. Haven't carried a tent in a backpack in years. Just a 14oz sylnylon tarp. But car camping, ill probably bring a tent an inflatable thermarest pad and a pillow from my bed. Why not?

Car_Barn_Bandit
11-21-2011, 01:19 AM
Full O-Ring Kit - $20 (NAPA)
New Drier - $24 (NAPA)
Vacuum + Coolant - $90 (AC shop)

At worst, you need new hoses or new hard lines. Check out a local PAP. This can all be done for well under $200 in time for the Dragon. If you have access to an air compressor, you can apply a strong vacuum using a $15 tool from Harbor Freight with $35 worth of r134a you buy yourself.

DO EET.

I don't have a spare $5 to spend on the car, let alone $100 or $200. I'm not going to mess with the AC system myself. There's a shop around here that specializes in Toyotas that, when I do have the money, the car will be taken to.

Werd. I didn't vote because the date doesn't really matter to me, so long as I can put in my vacation time by the end of the month.

this.. but mine was more so bc I dont know when Justin is going to boot camp so I'm not obligating myself to be at the Dragon if that's the week he leaves. plus my internship hasn't started so I haven't figured that out yet. oh, and you and Chris are my ride if I go...

Yep. Here is an idea set a date like the last weekend in April or first weekend in may and leave it. Permanently. Either that or let Murg and Luni set the date and everyone else just live with it.

I think the majority of us work jobs where we can ask for time off, so simply need to know when to ask off. I think we're down to about six or seven full time students that will show up on a regular basis.

Exactly the sooner we know the better so I can let the boss know

Nice to finally have a deadline to finish my car. If nothing goes terribly wrong I should have her on the road by the end of feb. That'll give me enough time to break it in and work any bugs out.



Are we Staying in knoxvegas or what?
