Tail of the Dragon after CamaroFest VII

A number of folks have expressed interest in hitting up the Tail of the Dragon after CamaroFest. If others would be interested we could drive down there together Sunday after the cruise.

**EDIT** Still awaiting final details about Sunday's cruise, so for now we'll make plans to leave after Sunday's cruise and festivities are complete.

Itinerary for CamaroVan to the Tail of the Dragon, post-CamaroFest VII:

- Sunday, after the cruise is finished: Drive to the Dragon Pitt Inn & BBQ in Maryville, TN
  • This is approx. a 4-hour drive (using interstates) from the host hotel in Bowling Green to Dragon Pitt Inn & BBQ, not including stops for bathroom breaks
  • $80/night
  • Close proximity to Tail of the Dragon
- Sunday evening: Free time / check in at Inn

- Monday 10am-12pm: 11-mile Tail of the Dragon main course, with Killboy photography opportunities
  • If others do not stay at Dragon Pitt Inn & BBQ, please make plans to meet us at the Inn by 10am
  • Leaving the Inn will take us on Tail of the Dragon from TN to NC, ending at gift shop/food options
  • There is ample time for 3 runs - coming down from the Inn into Deals Gap, running the course the other way, and a third trek back down to Deals Gap for lunch. This gives plenty of opportunities to enjoy the Dragon as well as get many photos from Killboy.
- Monday 12pm-2pm: Shopping and Lunch options- Monday 2pm-6pm: Moonshiner 28 to Dillard, GA
  • This is approx. a 2 to 2 1/2 hour drive (without stops) but might stop a few times for restroom and scenery/photography
  • 55 MPH speed limit on majority of road
  • Beautiful scenery
- Monday @ 6:30pm: Dinner in Dillard, GA at The Dillard House Restaurant.

- Monday after dinner: Stay at The Dillard House overnight or depart for your next destination, whether it's going back home or heading back up to drive one of the other amazing roads around the Tail of the Dragon

Details on where/when we will meet in Bowling Green prior to driving down to the Tail of the Dragon will come once details of the Sunday Cruise are finalized.

I'm interested if this is after or a split off from the Sunday Cruise that MLEE is working. My return trip is to Oak Ridge and any excuse to run the Dragon with a bunch of Camaros is good for me. I'm also Ok to do this on Monday if MLEEs cruise means another day in Bowling Green.

My son and I did the tail last year, it was a blast, might go again, I think my time was 18 min for the 11 miles, not bad for the first time....

There are a number of different routes, but the main one is an 11-mile stretch of road in NC/TN that has 318 curves in it. Very popular for motorcycles and sports cars to drive.

Their website is down but this page goes into more detail: http://tailofthedragontours.com/wp/d...herohala-loop/

Also these folks are positioned all along the Tail of the Dragon, taking professional pictures of the cars that drive by, that you can later purchase. http://www.killboy.com/#!
