First Vacation since SecondMoonshot

Let’s blog about something other than eBay! I decided to take my first vacation since the origin of SecondMoonshot! It has been in planning for the last 9 months and planned out with precision by Mark, a colleague from years past in corporate America. He’s one of the few people I still keep in touch with from that world and he coordinated a 4 day driving vacation, of which I only participated in 2 of the days - the last 2 days were track time at Road Atlanta which perhaps I’ll do next year. The overall plan was for a group of like-minded car guys to meet up at a hotel/resort near Robbinsville NC (Tapoco Lodge) and ride the Tail of the Dragon and many other spirited roads along the area, stopping for some great sights, keeping an eye on the speed limit (then completely abandoning it), and having some great food which mostly consisted of pork product.

Pretty much everyone were serious driver with tons track time and I was the weakest link, but felt like I held my own for the most part, at least until I went into a corner on the dragon a little hot and ended up in a runoff area. Everyone seemed to enjoy Highway 28 coming into the dragon area with its great combination and high speed sweepers and tight curves.



As you can see, some pretty awesome cars were present. Had an opportunity to make some new friends, see some great sights like Fontana Damn, and just relax. I’m with the black 911 4S above…even if I had more car, likely wouldn’t have gone faster as the limiting factor was more the driver than the car. 

Now back to business.
