It’s like 7 hours from South Florida..
We plan to leave 6am and do a leasurely ride up with many stops Erik has the bladder of a little child.
A few more will join I’m sure. Should be quite the convoy.

Lots of right seats open (20 of the 58 cars registered so far are just drivers) - you could find a ride and I'm sure also find some time to drive. And you'd set a Smokies record for distance traveled to the event!

Not sure if my wife is going to make it yet. Is there any where to add her later if she decides to go?

Did you register already? If yes, yeah we can add her later If no, go ahead and register and we can add her later. Just email us to make a change and pay the additional fee.


So, the shorter answer.. yes

​​​​​​​If my father decides not to go happy to share some drive time my car as well. The roads and event are so great I wouldn't mind being a passenger sometimes just to take it all in.

my wife hates cars, hates going with me to car events, hates when I talk about cars, get the idea?

However, she loved going to Smokies, she couldnĺt wait to go again! I had a schedule conflict this year and she made me bend over backwards the fix it so we could again.

Take your wife, sheĺll enjoy it.

Google hwy 28, cherohala skyway, the dragon - 129, blueridge parkway.. hwy 60 out of Suches. These are racetrack smooth, perfectly cambered roads with all kinds of decreasing radius turns, big flowing turns, switchbacks from hell.. like a videogame. The vistas may not be like in Europe, and you may very well die from how terribly low quality and unhealthy the food is in the SE USA, but if you make it to Smokies you'll never forget the driving experience.

Also, you get to meet everyone and put a face to their ridiculous posts and then laugh with them about your own ridiculous posts. It's epic.

DO IT.
thank you Alex.
i heard of the dragon - all the rest what i see seems similar amazing. i need also your face in real once to link it with the ridiculous posts Geneva?

Geneva selfies - last year two guys came by and asked how to record cool car reviews. first lets start with a photo i said...





There have to be a reason why you are not on 8th - as i will be.
so you have to remix your schedule and come to Smokies.
