I love the parkway considering its literally right down the road!!! There are plenty of mountain roads but unfortunately there are alot of LEO's on some of the more traveled spots as usual. If you guys want i could lead you around Henderson, Buncombe, and Transylvania Counties which are all right here in my area.

Thats actually a possibility! I am about twenty minutes from the estate. We would probably be allowed to get some shots in the driveway infront of the fountain/lawn and get an awesome view of the house. Now would be a great time to go because all of the flowers are in bloom.



Here is my girlfriend and i walking up to the house on Valentines Day.

Alright guys, 'nuf talk, let's nail down a date and location.

Rockingham has Street Drags / Test & Tune dates for Fri. & Sat., June 13 - 14, Sat., June 21, and Sat., June 28. There are also some dates available in July.

Or, we could meet in Asheville or Boone on those dates.

I'd also like everyone to start considering a get together for September 11 - 14 for the NHRA Carolinas Nationals at the New zMax dragstrip at Charlotte Motor Speedway.

Of course anyone else from SC, VA, TN, KY, GA, etc. are welcome to attend.

Yea, the fall Autofair is the weekend before the NHRA Carolina Nationals. I'll be there too (schedule permitting).

AutoFair - September 4 - 7
Carolina Nationals - September 11 - 14

You should just stick around the whole week.

How about this, we do something in the mountains this month and then Rockingham in July?
