Well guys, its been a long month with some problems (Joe, Chewy thanks for the help with the c5 info!) But the movers came and packed the house today and tomorrow morning, its off on a 640 mile move to TN in the Vette, bowling green won't be far from me so I plan on taking a little sight seeing tour there and also taking a small wind down the tail of the dragon on my way through, this should be a darn good trip!

Make sure you pack everything in the trunk real good, the dragon will shake things loose otherwise

Hey guys, quick update on my adventure. Hit deals gap earlier today but didn't get any pics cause the photographer (my wife) decided she was going to truck ahead to kingsport, TN and I just got here about 15 mins ago to the hotel.
The dragon was seriously one of the best rides I've ever been on, but what's up with the low speed limits? it would really make an interesting road course but way to dangerous for relatively high speeds. I did however get me a license plate frame from a souviner (sp?) shop there. If you guys have never been on it, do it someday (dunno if you've done it yet chewy but the centennial needs to get there lol) I ended up having to double back to head back to where I need to go. Tomorrows next stop is to cross the state into indiana and get to bowling green!

I haven't done the actual dragon road yet, but have been on several others pretty much just like it in the area. I may even end up in Cherokee NC this weekend for a night.

I did a trip to the dragon a few years back. I was told that nobody cares how fast you drive. Was going through about the midpoint stuck behind a slow Soltice when we passed a cop stopped in the opposite lane. He gave me a warning for being 10 or 15 over the limit. Lucky for me about the traffic, otherwise i might have been double or triple the speed limit.

The roads that were much more enjoyable (faster and less traffic) are roads like Blood Mountain, War Woman, and a bunch of others that I can't remember their names. We saw a lot of triple digit speeds on those roads.
