As the title states a group of us are planning to visit VA Rt16 between Marion & Tazewell, VA

I’ll be organizing the group coming from the South, but anyone is invited to join us along the way or at BotD. All we ask is that everyone drive within their personal limits and leave the area as beautiful as we find it on arrival. Of course it goes without saying I’m in no way responsible for you Hoonigans so stay safe in every sense of the term.

I’ll be blocking off some space below for route details and approximate times as well as a list of those attending and what they’re driving. If you want to be added let me know.

Attending:

1. Mike S550 5.0 Mustang

2. Captainratty Mk7 Gti

3. Jake Mk7 Gti

4. Rick Mk6 TDI

5. Robb Mk4 TDI

6. swcrow Mk7.5 Gti

7. 3underpar Mk7.5 Gti

8. Tigeo Mk7.5 GSW

Man I wish I could join. I put 1100 miles on the car in 4 days when I visited the tail last year. Mostly on the surrounding roads, moonshiner 28, cherohula parkway wayah road are all wayyyyy better driving roads than the tail itself, with 10x less traffic yess lawwd. I wanted to do the back of the dragon but didn't have time.

Have fun, post your gopro footage here after!

I feel like to properly experience the Tail and the surrounding area you need to stay there a few days.
