    Blimey’s Tiny Tour of Terror - MSSD 2011

    Welcome to the annual MSSD edition of Blimey’s Tiny Tour of Terror. Unfortunately Paul Penny (BlimeyCabrio) will not be able to attend MSSD this year. In his stead, myself, Jeff Cole (colejd [THMMC Treasurer], a.k.a. TurboMini) is going to lead this event using one of Paul's previous routes. This will be a long trip but you will be driving all the best roads in the area of Dragon. With stops to refresh and lunch in Robbinsville approximately 7 hours.

    We start off by visiting the past roads of an early morning helping of the Dragon and the Cherohala Skyway from TN back into NC, and then lunch in Robbinsville. Next we move on to visit one of our club’s favorite runs down Wayah Rd. Soon we find ourselves in Franklin and going up Hwy 28 running through some great twisties. Finally, we follow the Hwy 28 into Fontana Village. This route has enough twisties to satisfy any MINI lover. You will be saying “Uncle” at the finish.

    Now for the details:

    When: 22 Oct 2011. Wheels UP at 0900(ish) After breakfast!
    Feel free to join me for breakfast at around 8ish as I will leave Fontana Village General Store around 7:45 AM for Deals Gap. If anyone oversleeps and misses the 7:45 departure, or wants to skip breakfast, you can just meet us at Deals Gap Restaurant before 8:45 and you should be fine.

    Where: Deals Gap Restaurant (base of the Dragon)

    Bring: GMRS Radios !!! 20sub20

    Approx Time: 7 hours (including a 1 hour lunch stop)

    Lunch: Carolina Kitchen In Robbinsville, NC.

    Pace: Don't let the name of the run scare you. While
    this run is for spirited drivers, as always, we will keep it safe. A good time is to be had by all. If you love carving twisty mountain roads then this is for YOU! We will stop for short breaks; mostly to regroup and enjoy some of the scenery (and let the tires cool). This is 210 miles of pure driving nirvana. This is for all those twisty addicts we have out there. Consider this your warning.

    Return time: ~4:00 PM

    Please post if you are interested in attending.
