There may be some additional interest. Somebody tried to get a fall run together for the GA, TN, NC, and SC area and gave up after there was little interest. My Fiero club had about 15 Solsti and Skys show up to one of our runs about 4 years ago. Maybe they sold their cars or aren't as "enthusiastic" anymore?

You can add 2 Sols to the list. We're in Chattanooga but certainly don't mind a road trip to get wherever the fun is.

You can count me in! I'm from Knoxville, but would love to drive out there for a group run! Keep us informed!

Fantastic!!! In fact, a cruise down and around Chattanooga would be a wonderful trip, indeed! I will keep in touch.

Chattanooga would be fairly central to all respondents thus far.

Exactly what I was thinking! Getting anxious for drop-the-top weather!

Hell, a run from Chattanooga through the mountains there sounds like fun to me. I'm very familiar with the Smokies out here, (east tn) but not so much the cumberlands up there.

Freaky Tiki - maybe you could head us up on a cruise through your beautiful area!

Not trying to get out of anything, but there are 3 problems I can think of with me heading up a cruise here.
1) I know a few mountain roads around here but they are all heavy traffic areas making them unsuitable for cruising. I know there are some good ones further out of town but I just haven't ever driven them before and wouldn't want to take people on a drive unless I was sure I could meet their expectations (certainly wouldn't want people to drive here and feel it was a waste of their time). I could check out these other roads and see what I could come up with but that leads me to reason 2.....
2) I'm presently working around 80 hours/week which isn't leaving me time for much more than sleep and a couple hobbies I am struggling to maintain.
3) Hell I can't even remember what reason 3 was now but I'm sure it was a doosy

I will try and see what I can come up with but it may take awhile. In the meantime, anyone familiar with around here, maybe North Ga mountains, or even some of the NC areas may want to see what they can do. We will definitely participate as long as work doesn't try to spoil more of my fun...

80 hours a week! ACK!!! That's WAY too much time at work, but gotta make money to gas up the Sol. Better put in for a vacation day now!! I'm not too familiar with the Chattanooga area - have been there a couple of times and went up to Lookout Mountain for the day. It's beautiful and I'm excited about cruising down there again. I'll do some research and see if I can come up with a little trek for us. I don't think we need anything with extreme curves like the Tail of the Dragon, but maybe we can find some twists and turns for a thrill and then get a bite to eat somewhere - The Marble Slab or the Creamery? MMMMMMMM This will be fun, even if we don't have any kind of planned out schedule. Spontaniety is the best, anyway!

Yes and no. Detailed schedules certainly aren't necessary, but you do want a general plan so that you can confirm that the Mushroom Festival isn't happening that day, or that cute little restaurant isn't closed for vacation this week. I have had both happen to me, and it is less than fun when your delightful meal turns into a really late lunch at the McDonald's by the Interstate.
