Have a great trip , if it's done again we will definitely come.

Here's a link to a video shot last weekend on the Tail of the Dragon.

https://youtu.be/9duiy7pkaj8

I took the SLK but was with the Crossfire group annual trip. 80+ cars attended the event.

I will be there before then. I should be departing from Columbia between 10 and 11 on Friday. Going directly to the hotel. I expect to be there between 2:30 and 3. I hope somebody can bring some walkie-talkies, I donít have any. Friday night we will nail down the final route. Iíll be bringing my drone, so make sure you bring some stuff to clean up your car when we get there, want to be pretty for the pictures! I figure we will put the slowest cars in the front, that way nobody gets left behind. I am a beast when I drive these roads, I try to get single-digit gas mileage!

Awe shucks! Judging by that video, it was like I was almost in your way. It was a blast for sure. My wife was ill after that ride. When I mentioned we might go back through that again, she was NOT pleased to hear that.

It was great weather in the morning for sure. There was some sprinkles and rain later on in the day. I cannot wait to go back there again. Plenty of nice curvy roads to squeal the tires on.

We could certainly do that. I know the roads and the area around there pretty well. There are some nice, but not too expensive, places to stay on the North Carolina side.
