What are we thinking here folks?

We have some stuff to take care of at this year, so we might as well plan what weekend now.

I don't care. I prefer April, but we can go into May if we want, I think it has rained the last two years.

Unless things have changed I know that Jennifer and maybe Jamie were going to try to come and spread Bruce's ashes.

Anymore this has become a vacation that we all take together as friends, but I want to remind folks that this is open to everyone and we enjoy having new members and first timers there.

I assume we will do as we have the last two years, and do the whole Fontana thing, I don't see changing a good thing.

Discuss and pick a weekend!

We ain't there yet?
Sometime in April I have to be in Canada for a week, gotta check the date to remember when so I'll chime back in.
I'm not sure what I'm going to be driving at this point. I have a plan to get Mudhoney going but it requires taking a week off work and flying to NC to get it done. If Cappy is doing the BBQ again I wanna be there, so maybe I'll just fly into ATL if I can have a seat with someone. Maybe fly over to Chicago and ride with Chris and Stacy if they will have me. Unless I feel 100% confident in Mudhoney I don't want to bring her and have to pay a tow bill.

I am good with Fontana. The wife has expressed a certain amount of interest in coming just to see what we do. I told her, "Drinkin', hangin' out, fully homoerotic things, and driving, in that order." I will see how her interest holds up to determine my mode of travel. I will not have to contend with the range this year, so I will be there. Stay tuned, on the boss/travel plans.

Looks like around the 12-14 has only one other event. S2000 V-tak! rally is the same weekend. Other weekends have multiple rallies.

My 2 cents.

I'm good with the 12-14 thing, might as well bring a bunch of FWD Toyotas to show up the RWD Hondas.

I'd really like to come out this year. It's getting harder and harder for me to get around anymore and I would love to get to see you all.
I guess I'll have to see if there is any money when it comes time.

This may be my 1st time making it to a Dragon meet. Fingers crossed Phoenix is back on the road by then. Let me know what the plans are so that I can secure lodging for the weekend.

I think april would be nice, rain is ok, just make's that 30pmh speed limit more of a challange.

I'm going to make my best effort to bring a Celica down this year.

Ash might come and drive out autocross paseo.

Pretty much any weekend other than the first week of the month should work for me. First week is financial and it is pretty much impossible to get off anytime during the first week. I'm going to do my best to come this year. No real excuse since I'm only 5 or so hours away.

For the most part, the date doesn't matter all that much for us. Matt, most likely we will be in just one vehicle, so if you don't mind cramming into the back of the st165, you can ride down from Chicago with us. Remember that we usually go down to ATL several days early.

Anybody call and ask about the pricing yet? I think we need to set the date in stone to find out about pricing and availability of the cabins.

CollapsedNut

I'm thinking that my plan will be this cause I just don't know any other easy way to make it work.
I'll fly in to NC sometime earlier in the week, visit with family, Saturday morning I'll come out to the dragon for the day(it's only 1 hour from my parents), go home later that night and then I can have them drop me at AVL Sunday morning.
I really wanna go to the BBQ if it happens though. Just sayin.

Pretty much everyone that went to the Dragon was at the BBQ anyways. Save the train and gas and not be tired on friday. Its a win everywhere except for pay the extra night at fontana, which isnt much if you are camping.

I will discuss camping with the wife and daughter. I know that Rebecca is excited because she keeps asking me when we are going back to the Cabin in the Woods...

01-02-2014, 07:32 PM
I'm undecided on camping vs. cabin. I don't think I want a lodge room this year as I was too far away from the party.

I'll contact Fontana and work out a prices again.

And yeah, i'm going cabin. Though I might pitch a tent of sorts if I see Murg...

Murgatroy
01-03-2014, 01:09 AM
We may change the date, I hate to say that after saying a date, but we are waiting for them to get back with us regarding the following two weekends and availability.

Hipster Lawrence
01-03-2014, 01:56 AM
April 11th through 13th.

It is settled.

Well camping that weekend...I can do it because I have giant balls and camp year round I don't care if there's snow or what. But the beginning of April in the smokies has the potential to be cold as fuck. Just keep that in mind.


That said, unless someone else is camping I will probably just get a cabin with Marshall and crisco again.

I hope we pick a different date. I'll make it to whatever, but that particular weekend is like the WORST possible one for me. It's gonna mean only seeing you guys for a few hours.

Here's my uncles place on Lake Chutuge, I'd have to check with him on if he would even rent it but I think he would. It's a huge house with an extra guest house, boat dock, hot tub, you get the picture. Just a though. It's just about 1.5 hours from the dragon. https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=Deals+Gap,+Forneys+Creek,+NC&daddr=Chatuge+Dam,+Hayesville,+Clay,+North+Carolin a+28904&hl=en&ll=35.246741,-83.829117&spn=0.497959,1.056747&sll=35.38849,-83.871689&sspn=0.497087,1.056747&geocode=FTZKHQIdi3f_-inttQCxPL5eiDHEyQGvmNLFng%3BFRxTFgId-XIB-ynXltfWsydfiDHT4HurMhxVow&oq=tail+of+the+&t=h&mra=ls&z=11

Wouldn't be the first time we have let WRXs rolls with us.

Hell we let Mustangs hide in the middle of the pack, surely your WRX can't be worse than a Mustang.



Of course this is all theoretical, cause we all know your bitch ass ain't gonna show.

Honestly after being at Fontana after everyone else left and all the minis came in Fontana got crowded pretty fast and if the s2000s have all but a few cabins the roads will be pretty bad as well.
