Robert White....although there will certainly be occasional altitudes of 2/3k feet on mountain drives, according to my gps last year, I was surprised to see that the community of Townsend is only about 800 feet above sea level...less than my flat land location in Tipp City, Ohio...

Or over 5,000+ feet if you drive the Cherohala Skyway. :)

Jim & Melinda Watson will be here for the cookout, so we're at 41, unless there are last minute changes. One request: not unlimited parking here(!), so carpooling will be helpful.

Looking forward to it!

"Now, Mickey, you know we all drive 2 seaters. ;)"
Yep - so I figure that'll cut the count in half!


"Should we bring Bear Repellent?"
Some of you guys ARE bear repellent! ;-)

Jean and I am really looking forward to "The Gathering" in Townsend next weekend and will be arriving late Thursday afternoon...in the 1972 MGB....unless something catastrophic happens to it this week.

And...just as a reminder....if you are planning on attending the cookout at Mickey and Janet Richaud's chateau on Friday night, please bring $10 per person to cover the cost of the evening, which Mickey has shouldered so far.

Looks like we'll have a great turnout...looking forward to seeing you all...making some great drives...and having a lot of fun!!

Latest weather forecast says we'll have highs in the low 80's; lows in the upper 50's. Zero chance of rain Thursday and Friday, and only 10% for Saturday. Gonna be a good'n!

Phil....

There is a great car collection in Sevierville.

[www.musclecarmuseum.com]

There is also the Tennessee Air Museum at the airport....

[tnairmuseum.com]

Don't let humanity get to you in PF or Gatlinburg.

Consider driving through Wears Valley to get to Townsend. You can avoid Gatlinburg (but would miss the Little River Road).

Since you are already immersed in that giant tourist trap, might as well drive thru Gatlinburg to get to the Smokey Mtn National Park. You do not want to miss the drive to Townsend via the Little River Road!

I now prefer Wears Valley Road over driving through Gatlinburg.

We'll have opportunity to show Phil the Little River Road during the weekend.

Hey guys....unfortunately medical issues will be preventing Kay and me from attending this week....no game changers on the medical issues, just slow healing after a couple of recent surgeries. This will be only the second time we have have missed this fun event over the years. Have a great time and will see you all next year!
Mike

Carl, we spent some time in that giant tourist trap (Gatlinburg) yesterday and left some $ for parking and a ride on the gondola. Enjoyed the views and then got out of town, back to that other tourist trap.......Pigeon Forge.

Rick, I think we will take Wears Valley Rd. to Townsend on Thursday.
