Will you be getting in contact with the killboy group to see if they will be there so we can get some nice action shots?

It'll be in the middle of riding season, looks like they're out there daily. Below is directly from their FAQ:

We shoot practically every day of the week from about 10am until 6pm during the riding season. (March – November) Just enjoy your trip, and hopefully when you get home we’ll have some shots of ya.

I have updated the itinerary with both the main Tail of the Dragon as well as Moonshiner 28 into SC for those interested.

All - please let me know your thoughts on the updated itinerary. We still have plenty of time to plan, so let's take care of this so we can enjoy the drive come July

There are several photographers along the route and a few on 28 out of Deal's Gap.

I think there are at least three different photographers in the slide show.

For those staying a bit longer, Cade's Cove is only about 50 miles away. That is worth a day to make the trip. You may well get to see a few black bears and other critters up close.

My better half owns a farm in North Carolina and is from there. We visit at least once or twice a year. I love this area of the state.

**EDIT** Still awaiting final details about Sunday's cruise, so for now we'll make plans to leave after Sunday's cruise and festivities are complete.

Itinerary for CamaroVan to the Tail of the Dragon, post-CamaroFest VII:

- Sunday, after the cruise is finished: Drive to the Dragon Pitt Inn & BBQ in Maryville, TN
  • This is approx. a 4-hour drive (using interstates) from the host hotel in Bowling Green to Dragon Pitt Inn & BBQ
  • $80/night
  • Close proximity to Tail of the Dragon
- Sunday evening: Free time / check in at Inn

- Monday 10am-11am: 11-mile Tail of the Dragon main course, with Killboy photography opportunities
  • If others do not stay at Dragon Pitt Inn & BBQ, please make plans to meet us at the Inn by 10am
  • Leaving the Inn will take us on Tail of the Dragon from TN to NC, ending at gift shop/food options
- Monday 11am-1pm: Shopping and Lunch options- Monday 1pm-4pm: Moonshiner 28 to Walhalla, SC
  • This is approx. a 2 1/2 to 3 hour drive (104 miles total)
  • 55 MPH speed limit on majority of road
  • Beautiful scenery
- Monday 4pm-6pm : Dinner in Walhalla, SC at either the Dakota Grill or 3 Amigos Mexican Grill

- Monday after dinner: Depart for your next destination, whether it's going back home or heading back up to drive one of the other amazing roads around the Tail of the Dragon

Details on where/when we will meet in Bowling Green prior to driving down to the Tail of the Dragon will come once details of the Sunday Cruise are finalized.

I thought this was going to be Monday.

Will be too much to do at the Fest Cruise location on Sunday to make this one for me.

As far as I know it is on Monday since we have the cruise on Sunday.
