Default Who is planning on going to MATG

Just wondering who is planning on making it to the Miatas at the Gap this year. I am planning on being in Bryson City NC that weekend and might finally get a chance to make it to MATG (3rd through 6th).

Concealor104 or whatever his name is has a lodge booked at Fontana. I know there are 3 or 4 other mt.net people hanging out with him.

I unfortunately have something planned the week before so I can't make it out. I also was informed that my new truck and trailer might be to big to actually make it up to the lodge.

Crud I hopped on this too late. Not sure if I'll make it depending on lodging options.

Concealer would probably let you crash at his lodge for the right price. I am slowly debating if I want to come out Saturday and Sunday or not. I have to go see the Descendents in Charlotte NC Friday night, so its only a few hour drive west.

I'll be there with my wife. Not sure how thrilled she will be surrounded by car folks for several days, but she did agree to it without any arm-twisting. Looking forward to meeting some of the faces behind the screen names.

So you're free during the weekend? AMS drives their bigass semi-rig up to the lodge..... your truck and trailer can make it just fine

I am actually going to see the Descendents in Charlotte on Friday night. I am debating driving the extra 3 hours afterwards to get to the cabin sometime Saturday morning.

I'm disappointed I can't make it since they pushed it back a week and it falls on a work weekend for me. I'll just have to wait until Fall in Fontana this year I guess.

New management at Fontana forced that decision

​​​​​​​I know. I also got to get a car done that I feel like driving there. I want AC and cruise control because I have gotten old. Currently my 93LE which is probably what I will take needs a ton of work finished and AC fixed. I am slowly working on it between working on turbo setups.

I'm thinking I may leave from Charlotte Saturday as well and make a long day trip out of it. Baby #2 is due any day now so I know I'll have a sitter that weekend, although Wifey doesn't know yet. Let me know if we can make a train!! Choo-Choo

I'll be there, we have a group of 3-4 cars going.

I've never been, can I easily get a tuck and car trailer down to fontaina?

"Easily" is a matter of opinion and also depends on which direction you come into the resort.

From Chilwohee HWY 129/115/28 I've upgraded the brakes on the tow pig in preparation..... I figure I would have to go slow.

Brakes are less of an issue on the way up.... it's just a REALLY tight road.

I'd do it with my Montero and a small trailer with a miata on it, but that's about as "long" as i'd get. And i'd prefer to do it in a time where there's nobody else on the road, because there's no way double yellows aren't getting crossed.

Hmmmm, do you know if there is a safe place to leave the truck outside of the gap? I could ditch it and drive the miata in. We will be arriving at the gap about 5pm so no telling what traffic will be like.
