    OK so I was wrong about what day I want to do BJJ down there. It's Sunday starting at 2.

    I have some other roads I'd like to drive, and coincidentally they run around the area that this gym is at which is a couple hours East of the dragon anyhow.

    Here is the route I've started, which will bring us from Fontana Village through the Blue Ridge Parkway and then up to the Diamondback 226A. I plan to route back from there after doing the Diamondback Loop and intend to be returned to Asheville by 1PM so that I can eat and such. So far that map shows about 5 hours. Add another 1.15 from end of the Diamondback to Asheville ( gym location ) and that's 6 and a half or so. Meaning to arrive at 1PM I'm going to leave 6ish AM. The return trip is about a 2 hour return trip from Asheville or a longer via Blue Ridge in reverse if someone wanted to. Pretty extreme, but I intend to run it and hopefully some will want to join me.

    I hit the maximum number of stops but can plan the rest later.

    I found a shorter trip actually for my jiu-jitsu run... straight to Asheville, then up to Diamondback.. saves more than an hour..

    Can take the blue ridge back from Asheville to Fontana on the return trip or the straight shot depending on how tired I am.

    I'm down for whatever. I'd love to see if I can find a brewery up there to visit.

    New Belgium has a brewery there. I don't drink beer though so I can't really help with that part much.

    Anyone interested in a bit of a beer exchange? Thinking bring a six pack or two of something you'd like to share from your region. Since we are fairly spread out, might get some stuff you wouldn't see normally.

    Sure! I'm a fan of IPAs, hope that's okay. There's one local brewery that cans so I can bring some of that up.

    As per tradition. It wouldn't be a TOTD run without somebody putting their car together the night before

    Yeah there may be a bit of that on my end as well.

    I think my driver side front wheel bearing is on it's way out... and my turbo manifold has a crack.

    Thankfully Amazon got my bearing and hub here a day early so I can start working on that tomorrow.

    Hopefully my neighbor has room on his alignment rack between now and Wednesday.

    And the only guy I know that can actually weld stainless properly is usually slammed busy /:

    Good news I believe the cooling issues have been resolved. Thanks to Alex pointing me in the right direction with my timing at cruise. The turbo also now has a nice cozy blanket and the downpipe is wrapped.

    Got my 3bar MAP sensor installed and tuning on that.

    Cruise control finally works like it should and with ice cold A/C so at least we have that

    The only thing left on my list besides the things that just came up is installing my boost control solenoid.

    I'll be joining you on this cruise. However, once we get to Ashville I think I'll split and hit up a couple breweries and then meet up with you guys back at Fontana.

    That was kind of my plan. Go East, run the roads, split on the way back and get back later than you guys if you didn't want to hang out in Asheville afterwards. Give us some opportunity to run roads that this group usually doesn't get to.

    Sounds good man. The looks like some great roads.

    Update: Wheel bearing replaced and turbo manifold repaired. Really glad I was able to get those unexpected repaired knocked out quick.

    Nothing else on my list is important so the wagon is pretty much ready for the trip now.

    Contacted the body shop yestersay and it's the same excuse as last Monday. I pushed to get it done today so I have ample time to prep it for the trip. I'm calling them today and that will let me know whether I'm going to have my car for the trip or I'm gonna have to sling my Frontier around the corners instead lol.

    Tell the body shop I will give them very bad reviews if they don't get your car done in time.

    Thought my head unit shit the bed last night. Fortunately, it was just me being stupid and turned off the preamp outputs...lol. Just about ready to take off. Car is all sorted, just have to mount the SAFC display and do a quick wash before leaving Thursday. Mostly just coasting through work the next two days. What time are ppl planning on arriving at the resort? I'm hoping to get there early afternoon on Friday. Do we have a plan for food or just sort it when we arrive?

    I'll probably get there early afternoon Friday. I'm leaving town Thursday night.

    I have (optional) to trim the bump stop in the rear shocks and a rear alignment shim. I'll do those if I have time, but otherwise I'm good to go.

    That's BS that the bodyshop is still dicking around with your car. Seems like they've had it a while already now.
