Tail of the Dragon!

July 21, 2006

In a change of plans for today’s route, Jamie and I have decided to take the long way from Asheville to Nashville. 

Now, instead of going north of the Smokey Mountains, directly to interstate, we will be going south, making our way to the semi-legendary Highway 129, also known as the Tail of the Dragon.  It has something like 300-plus turns over an eleven mile run, and has been called the closest thing that North America has to Germany’s famed Nurburgring.

Mini enthusiasts host an event there every year called, creatively, Minis on the Dragon.  Lotus, Corvette, Ducati, and other enthusiasts groups host similar events.

And today, we’re going to be driving this road.  I’m jazzed, and Jamie is rolling her eyes.

    Nurburging?

    Thought you were choking on your Sonic burger there the first time I read that.
