I know some of you all were planning on heading down this year, so here are some more links with plenty of info:

General Gap links:
http://tailofthedragon.com/ - The "Official" website of the Tail of the Dragon at Deal's Gap
http://wizco.net/gapboard/index.php - A GREAT forum for meeting people who are attending the event, as well as finding out when, where, and what's going on while you're in the area.

Accomodations:
http://tapocolodge.com/ - Tapoco Lodge
http://phillipsmotelonline.com - Philips Motel (located nearby in Robbinsville)
http://fontanavillage.com - Fontana Village
For any others I have inevitably missed, check this thread from the MATG forum. In fact, there is a whole sub-forum dedicated to lodging :)

Photographers:
http://killboy.com
http://zeefoto.com
http://dragonslayerphotos.com/
http://moonshinephoto.com

Chances are, if you have been on the Dragon at all, one of these folks has gotten your picture...yes, even that one where you crossed the double yellow thinking you had full vision of the clear lane ahead ;)

To all those going...have fun and STAY SAFE! To those who can't, stay tuned for pictures! :mrgreen:

There were at least 500 cars there last year. However, since it was the 10th anniversary, numbers were up a little. We are expecting 350-400 at least this year.

I'll be at Tapoco!!! See everyone there!!!!

Oh and have a good honeymoon Bryan!! Take lots of pics for us! ;)

I also have some great news!!!! Free dash plaques and lunch on Saturday!!! We got a grant from the Graham County Tourism board to allow us to do this again!

The parking lot at Tapoco Lodge had well over 200 cars in it the first night--and that barely scratches the surface. A bunch of folks got to meet up last year. I know I had an absolute BLAST :mrgreen:

I might as well let the cat out of the bag...


I'll be going again this year, this time with my wife (as of this coming Saturday) in tow :oops:

Unfortunately, I will most likely not be driving my car (still needs an engine rebuild). One of my buddies up here in Cincinnati is probably going to loan me his 95M FM-II :D

You're not even letting Christy ride in the car with you? :shock: You're making her ride on the trailer?!? Jeez, Missy always wants to ride in the car. I haven't even gotten her talked into riding in the trunk. :lol:

You know me better than that...I go nuts when I can't see her now, so I wouldn't make it so I couldn't see her for a 5 hour trip! :p

I still can't find anything on camping.

To the few of us that were planning on camping together, has anything happened regarding what campsite we're sharing? I don't want to have to smush a tent in the trunk along with a couple bags if I don't need to.

Hey Tim, how many people from Tampa are going. Are you guys planning a caravan?
Hmm, let's see...three, including me, that I know of, but I think there are more that might go.

What day are you planning on leaving for GA?

What time on Wed?

Afternoon?

I haven't talked to anyone from Orlando about this yet.

We need to find out!

Do you have a place or are you camping?

Where are you camping? I remember we started a list of who was camping out, is that still in effect? I'll be bringing my tent and can pitch in for the rental of the site as well if this is still going on.
