If anyone's interested, Janet and I are thinking about going to the Abbey Pub this evening - I mentioned it in a post above, but it's a wedding chapel that doubles as a pub. Limited food menu (but not bad), and craft beers and ales. At any rate, I'll see y'all later today!

Here are some picture. Some I took and several are form others

Driving Tours
Friday we did a tour of the Dragon via the Foothills Parkway, traffic was light. We had heard roomers of increased police patrols and did see one motor cycle officer pulling someone over. After the Dragon we has lunch at Fontana Village. We headed back via the Dragon and Foothills Parkway where traffic was heavier. We had 7 cars on the tour and a good time was had by all. There is a link above to pictures taken by one of the professional photographers on the dragon.

Saturday we did the the Cherohala Skyway. Charles and Perky lead the way to Tellico Planes where we had lunch the Tellicaffe. After Lunch we entered the Cherohala Skyway from the Tennessee side and into North Carolina. We stopped at the Santeetlah summit of 5390 feet and drove by the Huckleberry knob summit of 5,560 but there was no room for us to park so we headed back. Overall traffic was light, the mountain air was cool and we all want to go back. We drove 200 mikes on Saturday and it seamed like 20.

In the interest of putting a face to the postings and names, would it be appropriate for someone to identify who's who, say on the picnic table picture?
Thanks,
Dennis

Looking at the post below the picnic table one, the pic from Mickey's, I see Robert Milks, Carl Floyd, Dream Milks, Perky Long, Richard Moor, Mary Schills,Lorna Moor, Sandy and Kelly Stephenson, Alan Moor's girlfriend (I can't think of her name) and Al's leg.
Next picture, Kelly, Al's GF and Al, two empty chairs (wish I could have filled one of those), Margaret and Steve DeGroat, my big brother Jim Blackwood, and Paul Schills.

Jim tells me I have to see Rick's GoPro footage. Will it be posted on Youtube perhaps?

Carl and Dan, Thanks for the names to go with the pictures, I will save them for reference.
I see teenage car nuts like me wearing adult clothes! For myself, I will always be 17, even if that was a VERY long time ago!

Make that Dreama Milks. Al Moor's GF name is Aurora.

You are quite correct, Dennis. Growing old is mandatory. Growing up is optional. We refuse to grow up! ;)
