No one has taken me up on sharing my rooms, so the offer is still open.  I have rooms with double queen beds.  I'll split costs with you.

2b, 2c.  The hotel in Clayton is the Quality Inn.  It's on US 441, just south of town.  Red Roof Inn in West Asheville is at 16 Crowell Road.  Friday night is for getting the cars checked out and ready for Saturday.  Because people arrive at varying times, no formal activities are planned. 

A route sheet is provided to each driver.  It has addresses that can be entered into a GPS.  These addresses will direct you to a point on the next road you are to take.  This includes text directions for those without a GPS.  A Garmin GPS was used to verify the route during the trial runs.

If you can get arrested for hunting or fishing without a license, but not for being in here illegally, if you have to show identification to board an airplane, cash a check, buy liquor or check out a library book, but not to vote on who runs the government,
you live in a country run by idiots.

Thanks!

I'll take you up on sharing a room with you and gladly split the costs. I'll also cover your meals as a thank you. :)

Yes.  Club members will be selling the tickets.  Drawing will be Saturday evening at Red Roof Inn.  Not sure yet if it will be before or after dinner.

Good weather, Fieros, good company, and no riots.  I'll be following to see how this year's RFTH goes.

Is there a sweep vehicle, this year?  Fiero GTB didn't pipe up.

He wont be with us.  He sold his Mera.  Family health matters require he and his wife as caregivers to her sister on a daily basis.

I read his sale thread, but he never drove the Mera, anyway.  I know you keep in touch.

I hope the ride goes smoothly.

He drove it to meetings and car shows.  Never on the runs.  Got back into Datsuns and after getting the car roadworthy he hasn't had time to make more progress.

Was it a successful run?  Lots of Fieros?

This year's run as a mixed bag. Overall, I'd say it was a success. But it had an ominous start as my brother Mike's car had trouble right at the start. But it was only a loose hose clamp, and a mechanic from the Michigan club quickly fixed it.
And something happened on this run that has never happened on our runs before. There was an accident. I don't know how much the person involved wants to share, so I will not say more for now.
When I get home, I and most likely others will share pictures.
The more complex the mind, the greater the need for the simplicity of play.

Sorry to hear about the accident.  I hope everyone's OK.  I hope the Fiero is OK, too.

Is Mike the brother from Texas?
