Cherohala Skyway Drive - Friday Morning 2018 Edition

Thought I'd start thread for this year's Friday morning Skyway Drive. The drive is one of my favorite parts of DGRR.

I copied the following from Jeremy's 2015 thread:

This is the updated thread for the skyway drive, all info will be posted here for this years drive. If you are planning on joining in please add your name to the list. We will be meeting at the Nantahala lodge parking lot at 9am and leaving soon after, so don't be late. BIG NOTE: PLEASE GAS UP BEFORE THE DRIVE AS ONCE WE ARE ON THE SKYWAY, THERE ARE NO GAS STATIONS! We will be using two way radios so if u have one bring it. Lunch will be in Madisonville, there is a walmart there that will be the meeting place for leaving out, you can eat anywhere u want, I figure an hour is plenty for lunch then back to walmart to regroup.

Here is the route.

They got water jugs at the gas station in a pinch.

Here is an updated link to a map:

https://tailofthedragonmaps.com/cherohala-skyway-map/

We'll start on the Robbinsville NC side of the Skyway and take the 41.7 mile trip to Tellico Plains TN. Along the way, we will stop at Bald River Falls which will add another 20 miles to the journey for a total of around 60 miles on the Skyway. For timing, I don't want to stop in Robbinsville, so plan on around 85 miles total without stopping for gas.

We'll go into TN for lunch then head back through the Tail of the Dragon in time for the Fontana Dam picture taking. This all means we need to leave as close to 9 am as we can.

Dale, look forward to seeing you and the FL gang!
