Post Ice Cream Run

Recommended Posts

OK.  I went to register and the apple pie run filled up before I could get there (3-4 hours) and I want something more than the Ice Cream run on Saturday, so here it is... something new for my (Texas) Metroplex MINI friends, my new Tar Heel MINI friends (Carolinas) and anyone who loves MINIs!  After some ice cream on the scheduled Ice Cream run (1:30pm) I'll be leading whoever wants to go a bit south down to another great:  Wayah Road!  It will take us about 2.5-3 hours to get back to Fontana.  We will be heading south down 28 to Franklin, west across Wayah and then back up 129 through Robbinsville.  With a quick stop for gas in Robbinsville and maybe bathrooms in Franklin (depending on need) we should get back to Fontana around 4:30 or so... plenty of time to get to the farewell dinner (doors open at 5, but dinner and announcements start at 6)


Here's a link to the map packet, so you will have my usual turn-by-turn directions:

Anyone and everyone is welcome (invite your friends).  No sign-up is needed (unless you are doing the Ice Cream Run, then please sign up for that.

If you want don't want to be a part of a formal drive, but would like some great drives to have in your pocket when you go (to do at your own leisure, on your own schedule), please feel free to print off that PDF above and these other ones that I'm running on other days... There are turn-by-turn directions with lots of maps and descriptions in each packet, but it's always the last page that I go to when I'm driving... an odometer mileage for each turn along the way, so you know when your turn is coming up.  A great drive condensed to one page.

Sunrise Drive around the Smokys (Wed & Thursday AM):  The Dragon, the Foothills Parkway, Little River Road and Hellbender... great scenery and great roads.  This is easily my favorite drive ever!

The Donut Run:   The Dragon, the Foothills Parkway & a swing past OutMotoring Corporate HQ and a MINI Dealership, with a return trip to Fontana via the Cherohala Skyway
