    It has closed because of rock slides before though

    There is a road in Robbinsville that they close for ďhill climbĒ events but thatís a one way road up a mountain

    I took the road less traveled, and that has made all the difference.

    Guys, FWIW...the police have become increasingly tough on speed on the TOTD as well as on some of the near by drives....particularly on the TN side. I was up yesterday and they are really holding people to the 30 mph speed limit. People were being pulled over for 5-10mph above speed limit. Some got warnings others got tickets....and they were pricey ($175).

    Just be aware that on the Dragon it is more heavily patrolled with both police bikes and cars, so be very watchful. Other drives like the Cherohalla are still OK and Rt28 in NC was good too. They have reduced speed limits on a number of the tributary back roads so be mindful.

    Anyone headed to Tail of the Dragon on Friday? Will be there early morning on my way to Virginia. My route brings me into Tail of The Dragon from Nashville, and from there the plan was to go through hwy 28 and get on blue ridge parkway up to the Asheville area. Any suggestions on a better route?

    A little life here in the thread. I've just started to get messages asking out the upcoming TOTD run. We're about 4 months out so if you're interested, start working your schedule for the following dates: 13-15 September would be the dates since they don't conflict with the Clogger Jamboree in the area, 20-22 September. There had been a consideration of possibly moving the annual get together event to The Snake on US 421. Interest has been limited in shifting the get together location to The Snake. So plan on TOTD run as being the event for this year. Looking forward to seeing ideas, hearing from both first time attendees and the regulars (you know who you are) for another bit of mountain relaxation, driving, food, and fire pit socials.
