  • 2012 Fall Colors Tour - October 19 - 21

    Been Here:

    Done That:


    Look's like the Tail of the Dragon will be our next Spring Blooms Tour. So where will we go for the Fall Trip please give input on some nice road trips and sight seeing places to help everyone decied what's next.

    I have only done 2 trips so far but I'am looking forward to many more.

    I could suggest a show in Ocean City, MD Thats four days of hot rods taking over a Beach town. It has a turn out of about 3500 cars and they are all driving all over the place all day and night. It's kinda like the Power Tour in the same town for four days. But I know that's alittle bit of a drive for some to get there but it's well worth the trip.

    And please list any ideas you may have
    Thanks

    although the show sounds neat, the idea of these is more to drive, and just a weekend thing. that shows sounds more involved.
    in the past, others have spoken of some neat runs thru the mountains. Deals Gap (tail of the dragon) is my choice.

      Yes, Your right it's about the drive that's way we need some ideas. We talked the other night and it looks like Deals Gap will be next springs trip just because of the amount of people already trying to run the Dragon in the fall everyone said spring might be easier to get rooms and stuff.

        Here is my .02. Why don't we do some tours of the NASCAR garages, ZMax dragway, or the NASCAR HOF. in the fall?? If Brent and Vic can talk to the people they know and get it done in a short period of time then I think we should do that, then do Tail of the dragon next spring. I will do want the majority decides I just like getting out w/everyone and driving.

          Was hoping it would be the fall..spring is to close to PT and money is tighter then because of PT to make the trip and i really wanted to go to the tail with you guys.

            Hey guys, What if we picked up where we left off and strarted on our way south again. I was looking at mapquest but I' am not sure how to copy it and post it. What if we started around Strasburg, VA(I-81 and RT55) head west thru the mountians to Moorefrield,WV(RT55 and RT220) then head south thru along the mountians to Covington, VA(RT220 and I-64). It looks like it about 165 mile trip and looks like during the Fall Colors it should look pretty good. We could even start in Front Royal at the Hotel we stayed at last time if everyone wanted. That way we could all start a slush fund for the Tail of the Dragon in Spring and it would give the guys time to work on the garage tour for next fall. And we would be set up for the next two years on trips. This is all just being trown out there. I'am willing to do whatever the group descides. I can have fun wherever.
