Postby dlambert » Wed Jan 16, 2013 8:22 am

I'm thinking about hitting the Tail of the Dragon the weekend before Nationals. The Tail of the Dragon is on US 128 thru Deal's Gap, NC. There are 318 curves in 11 miles. Let me know if your interested in joining me.

Someone set the GPS to shortest route or maybe it was set to evil. I don't recall.
