The official Dragon meet will be held April 29 through May 1, 2016 at the Little Switzerland Inn, Little Switzerland NC.

This is a fabulous location ON the Blue Ridge Parkway and 45 minutes from downtown Asheville NC. For flyers the airport code is AVL.

Be advised that the owner is also my personal friend and everything will reflect on me. I've secured rooms at 30% off the regular rate for the entire weekend and anymore you may need. He gave us a 30 day window to make reservations at the hotel. Slim but possible chance to get it extended.

This place is awesome. Great location. Great food and a fun BAR that doesn't close at 11! It does not have cooking provisions in the rooms so plan for that. Spruce Pine is a few miles away for gas/Walmart/shopping and other local eateries.

Please call ASAP to make your reservations. Advise them you are with the Celica club for the discount.

800-654-4026

I will update THIS post as necessary.

Yeah, I'm going, just deciding on what room to get. Plus are we going to try to buy out the Diamond back?

I'm sure you're getting a romantic little spot for Dea and yourself.

I'm planning on it. Wife is currently unemployed though so that is affecting my cash flow at the moment.

I am going to be honest and admit that I am not sure if I am going or not this year. The venue has nothing to do with it, and finances aren't the issue either. It isn't lack of desire, it is more of lack of pieces falling into time.

I can't actually comment on if I'm able to go or not. If I can I will. If not I won't. There is a lot of logistics it takes to get me out there, that it doesn't take folks from the east. Would I drive? I'd like to. Don't know how those seats will feel for a long haul. That type of shit. I genera;;y don't know if I'm able to go to the "Dragon" for any of the years I've been until about a month before.

So just got off the phone, there's one Chanticleer room (mountain view) remaining, and three A-frame cabins left. Anyone want to split one or did whomever just booked an A-frame have room to spare?

I already tried to swindle the lady into giving me the Balsam Cottage. Wasn't happening. Apparently there is a HS reunion going on during that weekend and a pair of couples got it.

Ben and I are in an A-Frame. All those coming single should rock the Diamondback Lodge. Cheap as balls and you'll get the whole area if there is enough of ya.

I'll split a room Marshall. Depending on what it costs I guess. I highly doubt I'll be able to trust the van enough to make that trip this year, otherwise I'd be sleeping in it.

Pretty sure I need a place, and I dont know about Baby Bear, but if hes going he will need a place too.

I guess it may have to be the Diamondback for us?

Well, the A frames have a king bedroom, a double bed in a loft and a sleeper sofa. Only one bathroom, and it is out of the one bedroom.

Luni are you bringing the lady?

Who is flying in when? Anyone who needs a place to crash on the way up is more than welcome. I have room.

It just depends for me. I'm only coming if I can bring Mud, but her engine isn't done. If it gets too close and I don't have ample shakedown time I'll trailer her, but I'd have to buy a trailer. If I buy a trailer, it's going to be aluminum. They aren't cheap so I'll have to really consider.

Murgatroy

John we gonna take em up Roan Mountain? I haven't been there in years.
A little further out is 209 to Hot Springs, that's a great road but I donno if anybody would want to go that far. I could show you guys my secrete little test mountain if we go out there though.
Swing by and see the double wide trailer I grew up in, see how the meth heads next door are doing you know.

This cracks me up. We are all getting old and a "day in Asheville" is actually something most of us want to do. A few years back it was "thrives and girlfriends decided to go
Shopping while we are running.



Pretty soon we will be hitting all the yard sales and going to antique shops.

I tried the Foci and we already have the Fiesta. With two six foot adults there is not room in the back for what will soon a six foot child.


Plus a Hot Hatch is not how I roll anymore.

It's cool. I don't golf, so no need for room for golf clubs.

Of course, I also don't have kids that I know of either, so I'm having a hard time justifying the four doors.

As it turns out, I don't make that much sense.
