    Considering my cracked RACP, I'd be happy with just a cruise over spirited driving. But I assume Vas will know the area well and inform us about all the hot spots.

    I'm located next to the southern entry point but there have been some members interested that live next to the northern entry point close to front royal.

    Ideally that would be the meet up point at the entrance and we would cruise to the exit on top of Afton Mountain. There are some local breweries and wine places there.

    I have done this route both ways and it's more of a cruise vs a spirited drive in the mountains. The speed limit is around 35mph iirc.

    Any particular weekend dates in mind? Or how about the 24th of October?

    You're lucky to get up to 35 when you're sitting in traffic with all the leaf peepers - at least this happens on Skyline Drive!

    Cool idea. Depending on timing, I'd definitely be interested in meeting. The Front Royal entrance is about an hour from me but I can be flexible on where to meet.
