Cool cool. Still looking forward to it. Rain, sleet or snow.

What apparently some of you guys are failing to realize, is that this isn't just a trip to drive on the dragon, it's also a trip just to hang out. So just cuz the roads aren't the best doesn't mean you can't come hang out and chill at the cabin or hike or enjoy the scenery and company.....

Hey guys/girls, finally got my lazy a** on here. (damn 50 pages and only 25 people going!)

Still just rain here, looks like we'll have to wait until Friday to know the road conditions for sure. I don't think we'll see much accumulation at all, definitely not on the roads unless the forecast is WAY off, but TDOT will probably salt the Gap Thursday night so it doesn't get icy. I'll get out there late Thurs/early Fri for a recon.

Also keep in mind that NCDOT is more reluctant to salt their roads, so Hwy 28, and 129 from state line to Robbinsville is usually clear and those are great car roads. Skyway was clear when I was up there a few days ago, but I'd say it's snowing up there right now. (raining down here at our house, but much warmer down here too) The Skyway is a pretty low priority road for NCDOT, so when it does get snow, it usually takes a few days before they get to clearing it.

If you get a chance to play in the snow on the Skyway, by all means go for, I certainly do all the time, but keep your head on as well. Mind the slope! I've ended up in the ditch a couple of times because I didn't account for the slope of the road, and slow-motion slide for like 10 seconds right into the rut. (bring tow ropes) Try not to tear up the grass off the sides of the roads. There are plenty of places to play up there without fuglyin' up such a beautiful place. Another place we like to play up there is Maple Springs overlook road, down by Joyce Kilmer Memorial Forest...it's only about 2 miles away from the beginning of the Skyway on the NC side. (Look for JKMF signs)

Hope you all have fun!

yes even if we cant get out for some reason, i still want to make it down to the two local dams and shoot some photos and if there's some snow on the hils that are behind the cabins...disc down those suckas.

if its snowing I won't be going, I will watch until Fri, but, it is looking like the AL crew won't be there. With HB's blown motor and me and pat on ESPT's it would be hard just to drive normal.

because you've obviously turned into a puss

having driven in MANY winters on XSP tires I would highly advise you guys driving on them as well. Knock on wood but someone may not be coming back in there ride. Salt is great, for snow, however if it gets cold again you get icy spots, plus I am not a big fan of spraying salt all over the underside of my car.

so are you going? waiting 'til friday is fine, that's the way the weather is going to play out anyways. keeps changing till the last minute.

we have this conversation every year we go,

....we don't have to run hard...i don't think anybody is going to go up there and over drive for the conditions. it's the dragon, it has a reputation, even with in our own group. so we will not be stupid. and salt washes off, i definitely plan on spraying the underside of my car off before we head home. anymore excuses?
