OK OK I'll do it! :lol:

For any that are interested (and arriving early) there will be a Thursday night drive down the Cherohala Skyway. It's a great way to kick off the weekend! Last year's drive was even bigger with almost 40 cars! Because of the larger numbers, once again we're going to leave a bit earlier. We will be gathering in the parking lot across the street from the Phillips Motel around 6:30pm and leaving by 7:00 to ensure that we reach Santeetlah (the highest point on the Cherohala) by sunset. Those that wish can then continue on with me to the other end of the Cherohala (there's a great little burger stand there if you get hungry) and make the return trip in the cover of darkness. The view of Tellico Plains from the Cherohala at night is something to behold, and stargazing from atop the Cherohala is something everyone should experience. It can't be put into words how amazing it really is. Don't forget to bring a jacket or sweatshirt, it gets chilly at altitude when the sun goes down. Look forward to seeing you there! (Please note: this is not a "spirited" run, this is sightseeing.)

Here's a photo from last year's run just to get you in the mood.

Getting real close now... I can't wait! Just keep your fingers crossed that we have good sunset weather. This run will go rain or shine, so don't let the weather discourage you! If it is raining, however, I'll probably head back toward town from Santeetlah and not go the entire length of the Cherohala. We'll play it as it lies.

As detailed in THIS THREAD my attendance at MATG this year may be in jeopardy... If by some horrible circumstance I can't make it, is there any Sunset Run veterans that would be willing to take over and lead this run?
