Default Georgia Mountain Roads w/Doppleganger and RotorNut

My buddy Gary and I took a ride up to Georgia in his Nissan to see if what they said was true, that roads didn't have to be built on level ground and along east-west or north-south survey lines. I was skeptical. I decided to leave my Miata at home because it was on stock power and so that we could trade off driving/have a conversation.

We were meeting up with Doppleganger, RotorNutFD3S, Steve-o with the EVO, all of which had girlfriends as their passengers, and a fellow with a turbocharged and meth injected NC who's name escapes me at this time. We were set to meet up in Dahlonega, but we were running behind because we stopped to buy replacements for fouling plugs.

So we called ahead and actually found each other on GA400 on the way up.

We almost added to a big pileup that happened on 400 and Steve's EVO had a bad seal on his new radiator's bottom hose which required a pit stop but we finally made it.

Then just as we got into a good section of road we ended up stuck behind some ******* carrying a poorly engineered piece of Milwaukee excrement in the back of his poorly engineered truck. And he really was an ***.

We got to the end of one leg of the trip and decided to stop for fuel and a stretch.

The pace really picked up after that stop. And we kept the spacing somewhat wide initially. The weather was really nice.

They really do make roads that curve a little...

Hey Steve, it's Steve with the Evo. It was nice to meet you and Gary and hopefully we can setup another meet in the future.

That r33(?) is a little ricey for my taste, but I'd still drive the hell out of it Overall looks like a pretty good road, and some great vehicles to enjoy it in!

I hated not remembering it when I started the thread, but I needed to get started posting the pics.

Hey Steve! It was great to meet you. I can't wait to see some of that video you were shooting with that camera mounted to your front bumper. Any good video from 180? Did you take any still pics, too?

R32. It's not my style, either. I tend to go for the understated look, but that was the way it was done up in Okinawa, Japan when he was stationed there in the Marine Corps. Apparently rice is big in Japan, who knew? Luckily, both the car and the driver can back up the aggressive look.

I know. I was really hoping you could go. I'll give you more notice next time.

You need to remove your wheels to be a cool kid on CR. 11.25 and 11.75 is next for me I think.

George's uphill sequence.

Sorry about the lousy camera work, but the still pictures belie just how fast this sequence took place and how much I was fighting to keep the heavy Nikon on target.

Damn that's a good looking NC. And what a driver!

But seriously. Did you guys notice how flat that car looks in those high-g turns? Is that too flat?

George! Don't be a stranger in here. There aren't many folks running boostesses in their NCs up in here.

And I've got more pics to post yet. Some more are of your car as well.

Didn't any of you take pictures besides me? Let's see them.
