Skyline Drive Scenic Cruising/Photoshoot day...








I think most of you guys have been to this road...but if you have never been...well, you gotta go...


The whole drive from the north face to the south side is incredibly long..and the WHOLE way, is all curves, you will not see a straight away for more than a 100 yards...if you like to enjoy a scenic drive in the mountains, with less traffic, beautiful paved roads, and fresh mountain air...we should all go for a short ride....don't take the whole thing, just go half of it...


I ride my motorcycle up here a lot, crashed up here too...it's about an hour away from D.C...


A good day to go would be Sunday, as it is less traveled, and the cops are usually not there the times i've been...


Just a preview of the kind of day you'll be committing to.

Leaving at 11am on Sunday (to be determined).
Driving at least 200 miles round trip
Spend most of the day there
The road is very very curvy, as mentioned before, it's mountain roads, no straights once we get there...we'll be about 4000 ft above sea level...N/A cars might lose a few hp up there..


but this place is gorgeous,

I have a DSLR camera...i will be doing the photography work, there are places we can park, do rolling shots, around the bend shots...

let me know who's interested, and we'll decide on a date that's convenient for everyone...

211 leading to it is nice too, but it's short...only a few miles...


going from the Sheetz haymarket to the backroad is also a good drive, we'll decide on something when it's near

no rush there sstarch1....we can do it the following weekend.

You must be pumped (no pun intended ) you're getting your car back soon

yes, please do plan out the routes, I think you have the niche on this subject matter, work with BK and Spool on media capture and other logisitics. We'll get a small group interested.
