You only see me there at 6:00 AM and after 6:00 PM!

Either having coffee or bourbon!

It's questionable, though, which beverage Mike consumes at which time.

I just thought you were drinking coffee with bourbon in it.

Here are the two drives we did at Dragon Fall Run 2015.

The Google map links at the bottom of each drive may not be totally correct, as Google doesn't allow more than 7-8 waypoints.

Rt 107 - Rt 281 was ran on Friday.

Farmhouse Restaurant Run done on Saturday. Farmhouse Restaurant can seat 30-40 if needed (call ahead to warn them!).

Bing maps allows only a small number of points too.

Mapquest allows 26, I think.

I like to type the directions up, and after the drive add things that will help people be able to follow the route.

Most of the time, to me, the directions provided are not the easiest to follow.

I use t.y.r.e. (a free routing software / planner that downloads to Tomtom and Garmin GPS units). that 215 / 281 / Charleys Creek / Ellijay / Wayah Road route is my favorite, and I found it about a year ago. Good times, narrow roads, no cops! On my software, I label this route "The BIG NC'. With the tyre software you can share the route files with others, and let them preload the routes. You can daisy chain about 50 way points, so the routing is fairly unlimited.

Agreed add 276 to the route. It's good too if you haven't tried it.

Micheal (DragonDigd) and I did a lot of scouting during DFR 2015 we did this route on the way up to Fontana on thursday. GA-180 and GA-60 were freaking awesome. Better have good brakes on 180. Beware of cyclists on the weekend. TN-68 was also a great road to drive on also. We ate at a great sandwich shop in Ducktown just north of US-74. If you get a chance check out GA-129 its the super dragon with some three lane sections to pass on. I would recommend not do this route on the weekend with heavy traffic and cyclist present.
