Robbinsville is a nice little town, stayed there for a week once. Close to the dragon and not far to other nice scenic rides.

And then there's Fontana Dam which is part of the Appalachian Trail .

Drive the dragon early and late to avoid the crowd .

How many French Broad Rivers are there around there? It's great up there almost all of the year. They're like the multiple Queens Roads here or Orange Avenues in Orlando.

Very nice looking area, I would love to see when they open it to lower the water level.

One of our favorite drives is the Cherohala Skyway. One of the best waterfalls I have seen in the whole area is toward the end of the Skyway, I think it was called Bald river falls, It's pretty big, you can see the people walking on the rocks next to it for size.

I have seen that dam but never open, that whole area is nice looking, it was nice watching all the cars and bikes ride the dragon on the weekend. 

 

Almost looks like you.

Which 3 concerts did you attend? I drove over to Houston 4 weeks ago for Sunday eliminations, it was awesome! Brittney repeated her win. Big fan of Force Racing. It had rained hard on Sat but was just beautiful on Sunday, cool and not a cloud in the sky.

Truth be told I sort of have a harmless crush on Brittney. Smart (university grad), beauty, pretty quiet and humble, and drives 320+ mph in 1000 feet. She looked straight at me while I took the above photo from approx 25 feet away. Been an NHRA fan for 45 years. John is 70 now, still doin it. Just look at the face......intense. The lights are def on :)

Brittany is smarter than her father. When the motor grenades in her car, it happens behind her, not in her face.

Light turns green, 22,000 collective horsepower unleashed, Brittney's front wheels in the air. Will be doing 100 mph in 60 feet.

John Force could be driving any configuration he wanted. John just wouldn't be happy without 11,000 HP spinning the driveshaft between his legs, clutch dust and massive racket in his face. He's been doing it for like 40 years. Hair on fire, 320 mph in the lights @ 1000 feet. 5 negative Gs when the two chutes open.

 

Two TF cars @ max acceleration = 170 decibels at very close proximity. Don't know of anything louder, near-field, short of 20 lbs of C4 detonating.

Yes she did, she may have been reading your mind and not sure if she should throw something at you or introduce herself.

We were about 2 turns down from where that photographer sits. It's a pretty wide pullover so we can stay out of the way, but still tend to stand close to the front of the car where we can get ehind it, you never know when someone will slide off the road. Some drive way more aggressive than others,  at times I don't how some retain traction.

I'll never know.

 

Actually as I was taking the pictures, I did not realize Brittney was looking straight at me, otherwise I would have waved. Not til the next day after i returned home and downloaded the images did I realize in 2 frames she was looking right at me. I can't see much detail in the camera viewfinder any more. If digital cameras did not auto focus, I'd be in real trouble. Diminishing sight and hearing.
