I'm not home yet and I doubt that many people are, but when you do get home, let others know you're back and safe. Safe travels everyone, see you at Dragon Fall Run 2018 or next year at Rock the Dragon 2019.

Left Fontana at 7:18am eastern time and got home to (Franklin) Nashville at 9:43am central time which was 3 hours and 25 minutes later. Made a clear pass through the Dragon and finally pulled into garage with no gas left and swapped cars to pickup wife and daughter at the airport.


Thanks for the most memorable event yet! Special thanks to Ken and Dave of the North as well as all attendees.

Ate breakfast with Derek & Tiffany at the Dragon's Den, left Deal's Gap at 9:45, pulled into the garage at 12:30. Time to go wash the car.

Wonderful event, a big thanks to everyone who was there this year! What a great group of owners we have!

Woke up at 2am and couldn't fall back asleep so I got up and left about 3:15am. From Fontana to the end of the Foothills parkway near the Exon only saw a pair of bikes pass the other way on the dragon. Just got home about an hour ago.

Tammy and I left at 7:30 this morning and pulled in 45 minutes ago. Thanks for a great time. As I said to her, “Why haven’t I ever done this before?!”

That’s what I was thinking, why’d you wait sooooo long. Seriously it was nice meeting and spending time you guys. See ya at the next one.

Kathy & I made it home safe and sound courtesy of the OKI group... especially Tom Crowe who hauled us and our luggage home. But also Denny (Looter), Greg (tr6greg) and Jamie (JoePhotographeer) for sticking around with us, waiting for the tow truck...

Clutch had been making some bad sounds since the event started..... finally gave up at the end of the Foothill Parkway on our way home.

Car will be towed to Airport Honda in the morning.
