This is by my local BMWCCA chapter (Smoky Mountain), however, if there's good number of memebers want to do this, we can have another drive on Sunday and make it as an official M3forum meet (2 days) if you remember what we discussed last year. :beer:
Post here if you can make it. Any suggestion would be appreciated as well:thumbsup:

This is a vid clip (BIG!! 174mb) last year my friend video-taping me driving my M3(Carbon black) from his 330ciZHP. It's beautiful there and the road is very challenging and fun. Convinced enough to join us there?:D :beer: :thumbsup:

Wow, that's about a 7 hour drive for me just to get down there heh. My back starts killing me after about 2.5 hours of driving. (Damn sedan seats).

Aww, I wish I was still in GA for this. I used to take the Z4 up there on weekends; that road is a blast.

Well, FWIW It's actually in North Carolina and Tennesee, not Georgia. Georgia does have a grea driving road (the Snake) which is the Route 180 off HWY 19 at Vogel State Park. Deal Gap (The Dragon) is about 3 hours North of Atlanta. One of the best driving roads in North America and some of the prettiest countryside around.

Ah yeah, I can see how my post could be misleading. I used to live up in Canton and from there I could take a few hours to drive up there on nice weekends. My main point was that driving from north GA is closer than northern VA. :beer:

Gruppe-

Due to the recent weather and high salt content on the Dragon, we're going to cancel this months drive. We hope to be back on schedule for the April drive and hope that we can have a good group for the drive!!
