BD, I may just tag along but would definitely prefer tailgunning. Maybe Adnan and I can arm-wrestle or something.

Ken - kgf3076 - Grover or Grovette (whichever one I get to first)

Sure Ken but this is on the same day as Fridays are for Franklin. Thanks for your help at Fontana. Owe you sir. Really weird walking into the lobby with no one sitting there drinking bourbon or having bubbles coming out of their ass. We had the place to ourselves. Only 2 sporty cars there. Weather was great. Really nice to see the lake along Hell Bender from Fontana to Deals Gap. No traffic on the Dragon except locals from Knoxville. The Skyway was a completely empty the whole way from Tellico Gains to Robbinsville. Soon people soon. Later BD

Yeah, I know. Nothing says I always have to go to Franklin on Friday. Might be good to change it up once in a while.

I would love to go on this drive, but I'm afraid it will be too spirited for me in the NSX. Still

Tempting but I have a commitment to leading a drive to Franklin. You might want to clarify your departure point as there are 2 car wash areas at Fontana.

Thanks Mark. The car wash by the putt putt golf course. Where is the other car wash area? Be on the lookout for the Black Mamba (AP2 Berlina) Please have a full tank of petrol. Thanks BD
