Default Cherohala NIGHT drive...THURSDAY

HI all- again, many months to think about it, but a night drive on the Cherohala is in the works. I say THURSDAY - leaving 9 pm, be back by midnight. We drive up to one of the high point look outs at 5000 feet...or rather, we drive quickly past the high point, drive back and forth a few times and then finally find the bloody place. I tell you, the Cherohala at night is pitch black and the road signs are a blur so I never know.

I've got an '06 Suzuka Blue with Ontario plates. Gather at the Fontana Wildwood Grill parking lot and leave promptly at 9 pm and we'll be back by midnight. We'll stop for fuel just outside Robbinsville first .

so, keep your eyes here. At Fontana, listen on channel 4.

see you then!
