    MSSD 2014 - Bridal Veil Fly Under by WINGS

    Blimey's Alternate Run of Waterfalls, Highlands & Bridal Veil Fly Under by WINGS

    For those of you wondering how in the heck are we going to get 97 cars in a row anywhere.... You are exactly RIGHT.... hence an alternate run is being created with similar origins but a alternative route.

    Here Goes the Descrirption- We will have fun and some will be spirited, but much will be just FUN run. I want everyone to have a good time and we will try to keep it tame.the whole idea here is a bit less mileage than Blimey's and we will notably be skipping out of the Ice Cream Run since we will be to the South and would have to backtrack a good deal to make that work.

    Rollout of Fontana Meeting up at 8:30 over in the parking lot in front of the Recreation Center (Pit Lane aka VENDOR ALLEY during MOTD) We will roll out at 8:45 Sharp to Robbinsville to grab some breakfast. Blimey's goes one way we go the other. Its part of the master plan to blanket Graham County in MINI LOVE!

    We will roll out over the hill behind the Village towards Tapoco the back way. (Yes, There is a Road in that there holler that is fun to drive if you didn't know about it). Last year there was a dog sleeping on the double yellow line... this year... who knows...

    We will run into Robbinsville and grab some breakfast. at Lynn's Place in Downtown Robbinsville. It worked well last year so lets go there again this year!

    We will roll out for some scenic twistys on the way into Highlands via some fun roads waterfalls and hopefully some pretty leaves too! We will be finding a place to eat eventually in Highlands. Last year we bombed downtown Highlands and it worked..... cause they blew our reservation at the other joint and didn't have enough parking. Knowing we will be past peak but during busy season this plan will probably allow everyone to get what they want and gather back up at the cars. We will see about this option yet though.
    Then we will head out to the Waterfalls. As many as I would like to take in hardly any have anywhere to park 30 cars so we might have to get creative folks. Glens Falls is the first one... maybe we can go in waves after lunch perhaps and break into two groups so we are not so packed in.

    Next Stop Bridal Veil Falls where we will attempt to pack as many as we can under one waterfall!

    Then Dry Falls
    http://www.ncwaterfalls.com/dry1.htm after that and head out for Cliffside Recreation area for a short hike around the spillway there is a really pretty spot and not a strenuous hike. It will also give some of us a chance to let others enjoy Dry Falls as both Bridal and Dry Falls will be most likely busy places. Cliffside will allow us to stage a bit before heading into either one if we can't all get in at the same time without going far.

    Once we cover these bases we will roll out for Nantahala via some more twistys and maybe a stretch or two on the way through Wayah Road. Here is the run; take a look at let us know if you want to join us. We will be going directly to Rivers End for Dinner. We might lolly gag around depending on the timing but it'll give us a chance to stage into Rivers End and maybe get ahead of the rush a bit. Then we will be back to Fontana in time to freshen up and do the Nighttime on the Dragon Run. Hopefully all the stupid bears will be asleep by then.

    Hope yall can join us it will be a FUN Day I hope for All!
    In the meantime,
    DON'T FORGET TO WAVE!
