Everyone verify they are coming and I can try and help figure out lodging for everyone.

I think there is a mr2 meet at the dragon during the same time so that might be even more fun.

We do need to pick a meeting location.

I live about 30 minutesor so to the dragon. If we meet in knoxville we can meet at a place to eat then head to the dragon.

Or we can meet in sevierivlle or pigeon forge, but we will have to deal with tourists traffic if we do. I know the back way to the dragon from knoxville, and traffic is minimal.

The dragon cane take 20 minutes to 45 minutes to run 1 way. There is a stop at the end with another rough cool road worth running that people rarely bother with that goes to Tellico Village. Its another 15 minute run 1 way.

We also have th option for running the skyway. It takes a couple of hours but has lots of nice sweepers and a better veiw then the dragon.

There are plenty of places for pictures and videos. I already have the coriography worked out for the movie so if we get a little coopoeration and use 1 run just to make lots of stops and swap camera etc... we can make a bad ass video.

If I didn't have to buy 2 plane tickets to malaysia I would have bought a camera too and a bluetooth mic to put near the engine for nice BG sound.

I think it will be best to either meet at my house or a restuarant near my house. I live right off of I-40 which will keep it simple, then we can convoy to the dragon after a meal and some introductions.

Well maybe you can stop by on your way up or down.

Its getting closer, anyone sure if they can make it or not. Dustin is coming for sure. We are going to try to make a pretty cool vid. Dustin is brining a cam, and I am going to try and barrow one. I am also trying to buy a car camera pod. I am also working on a remix for the video.

So lets start a list of whos going.

Here are a list of some hotels in Knoxville.

http://www.knoxvilletnhotels.net/

People can either stay in Knoxville, Marryville or Gatlinburg area. Knoxville and Marryville are cheaper and just as quick to get to the Dragon. 40 bucks a night seems to be average.

There will be a lot of goings ons. Seems there is a MR2 meet, and a East TN Z meet too.
