I can't make it to Squirrel Spur, but I might be up for a drive on the 23rd. Where were you thinking of going?

-poke- Are you still interested in going for a drive? I got a new-to-me Elise and want to test it out!

BTW, I saw your car several times this week (since I spent a significant amount of time at LOD)--looks good! It was in the detailing bay right behind mine. I didn't really go over and check it out, though.

I might still be up for Sunday. I am going to work on my cruise control install on Saturday and if that goes well I may head to the mountains on Sunday.

This Sunday (10/25) is supposed to be nice, let's do lunch and a drive! I'm rather new to the area so I'm not great at finding places to eat and fun roads to drive, but unless someone has a good idea how about meeting at Leesville Taproom (Leesville Tap Room) at 12:30, and then going from there? Anybody else want to meet? Got a better place to meet? I'm willing to drive, just let me know where and when!

If you ever wish to drive to cameron, NC I go driving on back roads almost every Sunday but not this Sunday as will be in Charlotte. Cameron is in the Sandhills just NW of ft Bragg and East North East of Pinehurst. We are halfway between Tramway and so Pines off US # 1.
I have the first Lotus that LOD supercharged last year.

Sunday Drive

Hey -
I am around on Sunday. Aaron you around?
Probably could not get to Raleigh in time.
Dragon is too far away, eh?
Maybe up to Parkway?
Ideas?

Sounds good to me. I think the Dragon is too far for a day trip for me, really--five hours there and five hours back makes for a loooonnnnng day. But there are other mountain roads. We went up to Squirrel Spur which is a pretty cool one, lot less traffic than the Dragon too. Lots of fun roads up there.

I have a 2005 elise (not YET supercharged) and will be moving to Greensboro area in January to work at the hospital there (physician as well!). Shoot me an email and we can talk more. Would love to meet up then for a drive and I could use someone more knowledgeable of the Lotus as I just got mine. :D

Squirrel Spur near Meadows of Dan??

We could meet at 12:30 PM at J.P. Looney's on corner of HWY 68 and HWY 150 in Oak Ridge. Then head out from there.

Maggie--Have you done the Squirrel Spur?? It would be close from Oak Ridge.

09Elise--You can change your oil after the run at my house--We can do it in 30 mins---Get the K&N HP2009 and some 10W40 and we are set. I have the jack helper so it is easy.

I am getting a lift for Christmas so then we will do all our work here:)

Let's all meet even if we just eat lunch and ride around local.

Feel free to call me--

See everyone tomorrow???
