So true!! We'll do some planning to avoid the pitfalls! Hopefully, FreakyTiki and my hubby will not have to work on the day we choose!!

Excellent!! Hopefully, by mid April the weather will be good and we can cruise!! If any of you are familiar with the Chattanooga area, especially the roads with great twisties, let us know!

If my count is correct, we have 7 cars. Also, there is a couple who lives up the road from me with a Silver Sol. I'll stop and talk with them to see if they might be interested. That could make 8 cars and if JRinky joins, that makes 9. JRinky, will you maybe join us?

I'm researching possible twisty roads and found one that is about 20 miles northeast of Chattanooga. The motorcyclists call it the Ocoee-Blue Ridge-Fort Mountain Loop and begins around Collegedale, TN. It is indicated to be about 150 miles and takes approximately 4 to 6 hours. Here's what Motorcyclist Shadow56 says about this route in the Open Road Journey website:

"This route takes you from Collegedale, the home of Little Debbie Snack cakes, through the beautiful Ocoee Gourge. Then down to Blue Ridge, Georgia where on the way you can stop and sample some of the regions best apples. From there you can browse the quaint shops and pick up something to drink in Elljay, Georgia before you head out to tackle the scenic vistas of Fort Mountain. Next you ride through Chatworth, Georgia where you could stop for a bite at one of the authentic many Mexican restaurants. Then you will be riding the back road of Georgia and Tennessee to complete the trip back to Collegedale. This is a motorcycle ride in the states of Tennessee and Georgia. This motorcycle route has 4 scenery characteristics and other road conditions to help you plan your road trip."

This seems a little long but I thought I'd let ya'll see it. It would be a weekend trip instead of a day trip. I will continue looking for other routes and will let you know if I find any more. Oh, and ya'll can search, too, and let me know. Pretty please!

Well, I'm fairly certain my husband will have to work all Saturdays until next fall. So I'll need to make this a one-day Sunday cruise. I am not familiar with the Chattanooga area and the only other twisty road I could find near there is a drive up Lookout Mountain, but it's only an 8 mile trip. The twists are good, though, and it is beautiful. We could stop on top and have a bite to eat, wonder around the park, come down into Chattanooga and visit the Marble Slab Creamery. Just a thought. I will keep searching and if anyone comes up with any ideas, please, please, please let me know. No matter what we do, we'll have a great time!!!!

Found another one - it's 36 miles and is State Route 156. It looks like a great one, too!
