Hey all,

Here is the info from the M3 post on the Carolina run:

Here's the plan:

Meet at 9:30AM

Ingles (in the parking lot)
1500 Geer Hwy
Travelers Rest, SC 29690

We will leave at 10AM. We will split everyone into 3 groups (with someone local that knows the route leading each group), leaving 10 mins apart. Please come already fueled up. We will then drive on Caesar's head, head towards Brevard for lunch (get there at 11:30ish if not earlier), then we will drive on part of the Blue Ridge Parkway. There will be a stop for a small photoshoot around a place called Skinny Dip falls.

After that, the group from ATL can start heading South if they want, while the NC folks can break off too. The SC crew will prob go a bit further and then call it a day.

Here's the route:
https://maps.google.com/maps?saddr=1...=10&via=3&z=10

This is pretty much the same route as we took on this drive. Here are some pics:
Mountain drive & some rolling shots (NC-SC) - BMW M3 Forum (E90 E92)

Once we organize a meeting spot and time for the folks all leaving from Atlanta I will post it here.

You're right, there seems to be a problem with the link. Here it is again straight from the google map:

Hey guys, the organizers are trying to get a head count. If you are planning on making the trip please post a response here so I can give them an idea of the number from the M5 board.

For those of us coming from Atlanta, we are going to meet at 7 AM at the Starbucks at 3264 Buford Dr #80, Buford, GA ‎ (678) 714-8459

It is right off of 85 north of the 985 split. Any of the guys coming from Gainsville etc... can easily come in off of Buford Dr.

Ken

Thanks, Ken

Great! I already accounted for an extra when I gave the M3 guys our count so they know you are coming.

I unfortunately had to change my plans last night. So, I will not be making the trip. I hate that I am going to miss you guys but I know you are going to have a great time.

Well, I'm stuck in Dallas at the moment, with the estimated arrival time at home around 2:30 am. So, not sure I'm going to make this drive or not. Hope to, but not looking good at the moment.

Mel couldn't go either. I don't think the M3 guys will miss us too much! See you on the next trip.
