      ?? I reserved my same cabin for next year a month before attending this years event. So is the May 19th for changing your accommodations?

      May 14, 2013

    • Mark S.

      Right you could reserve your same accommodations before 5/19, but some of us want to upgrade and must wait till Sunday. Or if you never stayed at Fontana reservations are then opened.

      That was my first trip UP the dragon with all my cargo weighing me down, leaky was not liking it at all.... I think John waited a good 10 mins till I made it to the overlook.

      Your car looks great Celia:-) Congratulations!

      Nikki - when you go to the car show everyone gets a ballot. All of the cars on display get numbers. It really helps if you know what you want to win and campaign for it. So when people came to Tigger I would explain the custom paint job and then say "Car 23 Best custom paint, best first gen cabrio and look how clean he is" That helped me win those three categories. Celia really wanted best in show, so we all made sure to vote for her. After all the car looked amazing. Competition was stiff in the best custom paint category, there was smack talk going down!!! :-) I can't believe I won it

    This was my first year down to MOTD. I loved it. Will be going back soon.

    Will be coming next year for sure!

    Great event, at first the car was not happy with the roads but after some suspension adjustment , a bit of confidence in the roads, and in the car itself, that little mini was in it's element.. truly. I'll be back for sure, I need to find that motorcycle museum! plus I already have an idea for next years car show to add a theme beyond just being a classic.

    7 · May 5, 2013

  • Tom L.

    Six trips to MOTD and it is still the best MINI event anywhere. The amazing thing is that it is all done by volunteers! A BIG thank you to all of them!!

    Awesome week

  • Will S

    Left early this morn. Got home a couple of hours ago. Ran errands, Washed MINI and *now* I'm going to find food. First time on The Dragon I was focused on staying on my side. But as I got comfortable with my new coilovers and sway bar keeping me stuck to the road I pressed my MINI harder. At one point my stomach did flip-flops...but my MINI held! As I drove faster I felt the corners of my mouth turning up until I realized I had a maniacal grin on my face. Will look to go back and spend more time outside Fontana. There is LOTS more worth doing there other than The Dragon (IMHO).

    8 · May 5, 2013

  • Michele G.

    Just leaving now...had some adventures in the rain today. Definitively coming back next year!

    For those of you wanting to go, call Fontana Village EVERY day to check for cx's. we got our cabin the week before MOTD that way! Even call twice a day. Get on thier waiting list, too. People more likely to cx the closer we get.

    For those of you leaving Tuesday morning a bunch of us are meeting up at the Sheetz, 1683 Berryville Pike,(rt.7) in Winchester, Va. 22602. We will be departing Sheetz and heading for Bristol, where many of us are booked for the night, at 10:45 sharp. From many points in Maryland it takes around 1.5 to 2 hours to get there. We should exchange cel numbers in case we get separated. Join us, the more the merrier!!!!

    Looking for the scenic byways around The Dragon? Here is an excellent source. You will note that many of these drives are part of MOTD.

    Just a reminder - Rt 441 between Gatlinburg and Cherokee is closed due to a landslide back in January and will probably not reopen until at least June.

    April 4, 2013

    • John (aka j.

      On a similar note, the Cherohala Skyway is now open after a less damaging slide, but it may be down to a single lane. See the story here: http://grahamstar.com...­

      Very good to know seeing as I had planned to do a day at Dollywood, just need to scope out another route.

  • Martin E. M.

    I guess I'm out luck made reservations at Bryson City, 40 min. from Fontana. Will see you all on Wed morning. Hi Celia look me up so I can meet the C3M club people.

    April 5, 2013

    • Celia

      I'll be wondering around wed, probably won't be around Fontana until late afternoon. Feel free to drop by the cabin or call on the radio. C3M radio will be 4 sub channel 9, I'll try by best to have at least one radio tuned to that channel for the week.
