Re: Friday Morning Spirited Run

I'll be coming in from Hiawassee, Ga. About an hour away. I'd hate to miss the cut. If I get there at 9:00, will I be there in time to be in the '40'?

Re: Friday Morning Spirited Runran the route

Ran the route. Roads are in good shape, well as good as tar &gravel top-coat can be. NO Loose gravel at all. There is quite a bit of wash-board but not a major concern. When I posted this thread i took a different road. The correct road is Fontana Heights. It comes out at the same place but is w...

Not familiar with those roads but if Evil Dave and Ken are involved with setting it up than you can count on it being a fun route to drive. When you say that it's not too long/short ,what are you talking? For me the 'spirited" run is the highlite of the weekend and I want all of that I can get...

But...........

Please remember it's impossible to eat an ice cream cone & drive a 5 or 6 speed Miata. Ice cream in my lap was fun for the dog when I got home but for me? Not so much. ;-)

Re: Hai guis

With enough notice you can rent a Miata. Enterprise Car Rental does & they only need a week or so. Best to call.
