Mountain Run Saturday March 7

Temps in the mid-70's. Sunny. Taste of Spring.
Time for another Mountain Run!

Saturday March 7th

I'm starting early, leaving downtown around 8AM, most definitely meeting for some much needed espresso at a Starbucks somewhere. Where? Perhaps we can rendezvous somewhere close to Atlanta where all of us can meet up conveniently @ 8:30AM. Any suggestions?

I'll be tailed by a 997 Carrera (haha, he doesn't know that yet).

Who's down? Foxy? Call? Eyeman? One&Only? slog? Bueller?

Would be ideal if you could make it, Call, since you know the roads so well - I've only been up there once.

So sorry...I went yesterday and posted pics on the dragway thread *woops*
We had soooo much fun! Had I not gone yesterday I wouldn't have gone at all.

Tomorrow I got a 5K in the morning and while on the drive, I learned a member of my family passed & the funeral is in Atl Sunday....Plate's full!!!

But I do love a spirited drive (been doin em in my MINI since '04)...and I'll be there for the next one.

I'm sorry to hear about your loss, Rebecca. I remember you had a run tomorrow but I'm glad you got to get out there anyway.

if you wantto give out some tips on where to go and what paths to take, that would be awesome. I don't think any other 1's are going.
unless Call comes in last minute.

cheers!

K...we started like this:

Lets start from the Race Trac gas station in Jasper. Thursday morning @ 9:00am

Latitude/Longitude: N34 23' 55.97", W84 24' 45.62"

http://mapshare.delorme.com/Consumer/V.aspx?p=t3c523v7
303 Interstate South Drive, Jasper GA 30143

Remember your FRS radio, 7/21.

Radios are used when we need to get everybody passed a slow vehicle. Say the 1st guy makes it then runs down the road telling us whether it's clear enough to pass. On twisty rds. you need a guy out front.

I never can remember the roads. Call knows them by heart....but one of the guys who went Thurs mentioned these as being his faves. He also likes to eat at a restaurant in Tellico Plains. We hit that at just about 12:30 perfect to satisfy our hunger before shooting up the Cherohala.

What a great run...... Where do I start.

Great roads......

I absolutely love that section of 60 between 19 and Suches. TN 68 is fabulous as well. And the Cherohala, what can you say about the Cherohala. The run back down TN 68 was like shooting down a water slide, amazing. Between the lengthy run on the twisties and fighting ATL rush-hour traffic on the way home, I'm wiped out.

Hope this helps cause it's all I've got to tell you...most of the time I was apex diving. Have fun and be safe.

Well, it was a good day.
the 911 couldn't go along, so it was my 1 and 6 bikes (mainly ducati's and the K1200s from last time) and we also had a change in destination because of a gravel tip that morning. We headed South towards Newnan and South Fulton Pkwy. Ate lunch and then I split and headed up to Blood Mountain on my own around 2p.

took 19 all the way up to that lodge at Blood Mountain and then continued up towards 348/Richard Russell Scenic Hwy, got to the top where the icy cliff photo was taken last time and then head back to Blood Mountain.
headed south to take 60 east to Suches, took 180 all the way back east. 180 is riddled with gravel still, but i was the only one on the road the whole way - which was awesome. sun was starting to go down and got back down to Dahlonega as soon as the light was gone.

one day we'll organize this a little better and get everyone there!

thanks for the tips, Rebecca. hope to do the Cherohala next time.

photos to come. . .
