    Planet-9 goes to The Dragon, 2010

    Twas the night before...The Dragon!

    This will be the master thread for photos and comments as a group of us begin our road trip to The Dragon in North Carolina this week.

    We have folks from CT, NY, NJ, VA, MD, NC, GA, TN, OH and I'm sure I missed a state or two all about to converge on the North Carolina-Tennessee border.

    Let's see, I weighed in at an even 150 lbs on Friday. Who wants to predict how much weight I'll gain or lose after a week of sitting on my a## for 8 hrs and eating three full meals daily?

    If you weigh a buck fifty now, I would say you'll weigh a buck fifty when your done.
    That brain, foot and eye hand coordination is going to be working overtime. That'll burn enough calories.

    '08 Guards Red CS, 6 sp, 19" Carrera Classic Wheels, Black Standard Leather Interior, Heated Sport Seats, Bose Sound System, Sport Chrono, Auto Climate, Auto Dimming Mirrors, Xenon HID and uh a rocket booster, yeah that's the ticket!

    That's it? a buck fifty?? You can do a buck fifty in a blink of an eye and more time than you could imagine.. A buck fifty on the tach? Oh wait.. we're not talking about speed, nvm.. Good luck, be safe and have a blast!

    I'll def. join you guys for road trips once I could locate my CS (:

    A little rain this morning of departure in Eastern VA. Hopefully it will blow through and sunny skies will take over. Everyone drive safe.

    Flex your buns while you drive to burn calories and you should be fine. I bet the adrenalin will help burn through some of those meals, too, once you get to Deal's Gap.

    Have Fun!

    Today was basically an all day drive for the Nor'Easters, about 400 or so miles. Averaging 28 MPG for me.

    Re: Planet-9 goes to The Dragon, 2010

    To be honest, we had so many additions and dropouts that I lost count.

    My best estimate is between 14 and 17 people . We'll get a full headcount tomorrow evening.

    In Christiansburg right now:

    1. PistolPete
    2. Retired-Teach
    3. gonzo
    4. macscaymans
    5. BigGuy
    6. ajk
    7. cbr600 +1 (911 owner)
    8. bretster
    9. schwabe

    Looks like the "Usual Suspects" have all arrived and are off to a great start.

    I posted a link to this thread in the "Climb to the Clouds" thread on Bimmerfest.

    macscaymans should have went down a couple weeks ago.

    MINIs On The Dragon - Home

    450 minis gathered at the dragon. They have been doing it for the last 8 years!
    I can't even imagine the headache of trying to put that kind of event together.

    Re: Planet-9 goes to The Dragon, 2010

    Daytona, the gang is in Fontana/Tail of the Dragon area tonight and tomorrow. They will be to Asheville, I THINK around 2 pm. They will be stopping by my house around 5:30 and then all of us are going to dinner downtown Asheville at 7 pm at Packs Tavern.

    I live in Asheville. Come here often?

    I think I may have seen you on Charlotte Street today.

    Re: Planet-9 goes to The Dragon, 2010

    Like Kevin said, we'll be arriving in Asheville Wednesday afternoon around 5PM. Let us know if you can join. Meet us @ Kevin's place.

    We're in Fontana Village now, very limited Internet access in the lobby so no photos tonight.

    Some CRAZY driving on the roads today. No tickets and everyone is safe.

    Schwabe has a MONSTER car. I'll leave it at that.
