Hope you can make it next time. The police are not bad during the week. We see almost no traffic on the morning runs during the week. Last year it was just a couple of hunters.

Great! Glad to see someone will make it. I was beginning to think I was going to the Dragon alone. Are totsubo and cheesewz still able to make it?

Default Sunny Tuesday on the Dragon

The current forcast for Tuesday 31st at the Dragon is a high of 67 and sunny. A 30% chance of showers in the afternoon. However, we will be long gone by then.

We will gather at 7AM at the Best Buy's parking lot across from Perimeter Mall at 7 AM.

GA 400 North all the way to Dahlonega, GA. Then left on Route 60. Pitstop at the Chevron on the corner of 60 and GA 400.

I'm going to leave earlier (6:30) and meet you guys up there. The last time I went up with you, you outran me so badly that I felt bad for holding you guys up. hehehe You will probably pass me though.

Can you type out the route:


I've got 400 to the Shell station, but after that I am a bit fuzzy.

Terry, I'll go earlier with you if you don't mind. I'll have my Valentine, but may not run as fast as the other peeps. When we're doing the actual run, I definitely do not want to be out in front. You guys have all driven yours harder than I have, so I'll need to find my comfort level.

I live by Oglethorpe. There should be a place where we can link up on 141. I definitely don't mind going early.

I do not need to outrun anyone on the way up. I would love the group to be together on the way up however I am flexible. Also, prov1 will be going us on the fly on GA 400. He will already be on the north side of town. Be on the lookout for him. If anyone is going to be at the Best Buy at 7am please let me know. Otherwise I may try to catch totsubo and cheesewz departing at 6:30am.

The directions are:


GA 400 to the Chevron station on Hwy 60. Turn left on 60 towards Dahlonega. Continue on Rte. 60 North for approx. 8 miles where the road will fork. Take the right fork on US 19/State Route 9. Travel 5 miles on US 19/State Route 9 untill it ends at US 129. Turn left on US 129. At this point you will stay on US 129 until you reach the Dragon. If you are using a Navi. you are looking for Robbinsville, NC.

Default Revised Metting Place

We will all meet at the northwest corner of GA 400 and Hwy 60 at 8am at the Chevron Station on the hill. Travel GA 400 north until the left lane is a left turn only lane. This occurs right after a bridge. Turn left on 60 and the first right is the Chevron.

45 miles north of I-285 and 30 miles north of Alpharetta. I searched the Chervon address and it appears to be wrong. The Chevron is next to a Waffle House. The waffle house address and phone number are below.
