October 25th 11:00 AM to 07:00 PM
*The times shown may change, depending on DST settings
Where: Huntsville
Contact: Beck - mitchebe@uah.edu

After seeing the pictures brought up from the last one, I wanted to do something like this again. I don't know where/when we should meet, what route we should take, etc. but that's why I created this thread to promote discussion and ideas.

Obviously, we should probably keep it in the Huntsville area like last time and probably include a place to eat again. (Tokyo again?)

Sunday October 21st is looking to be a good day for a cruise around Huntsville.

Link to the last event like this:

Ideas?

I'd be game assuming I'm free, I don't even really remember what we did last time aside from meeting at Ditto.

Check the link I posted. Samir wrote up a whole description.

I had talked to Byong the other day when I was eating at Tokyo and he said he'd love to have us there for food again if we decide to stop somewhere to eat.

Maybe we can go up in/around Jones Valley and out towards Speakerbox and such or event start at the Speakerbox and head west?

Doesn't matter to me. The Speakerbox is closed on Sunday's (I can always open it while I'm there, though), but I definitely don't mind it being a start/stop point or a spot to get the group together during the cruise.

We could always start in Jones Valley. We need to find some good places for pictures along the way, though, like last time. I think that made a big difference.

Possibly go down around Green Mtn? That could make for some decent photos. Samir may know a few "static" spots to get photos at. I'd be (as always) willing to shoot the event if Samir is willing to drive/ride/join to help.

If I am in town I would attend. Have to see at this point. As far as a route what about N65 up through Skyline? Could stop up at Sewanee University or something. Just throwing out ideas especially if you start at Speakerbox. Only thing with that route is the road going up the mountain to Hytop has deteriorated badly. It is sketchy on the bike.

Oh, I've never been up there. Just throwing it out as I figured it was scenic. Glad someone knows what they are talking about! haha

We basically met there as well as some other spots and just took photos and hung out with the cars. It was really laid back with just some crusing, photos, and then food, and then more crusing and photo stops. We did this the whole day long.

Yep! It's why I do it. I couldn't even remember where we met up, lol.

I'd really like for him to just join us this time instead. I talked to him the other day about the exotics cruise, so maybe combine the two cruises into one? Exotics cruise + misc? Or two parallel cruises, maybe different routes ending up at the same place to eat?

We could hit the stretch that takes us to 72. It's a nice and smooth road, and gets a little fun towards 72 with some nice scenery. The only problem is the 72 route back towards Huntsville is pretty boring.

I don't mind stopping at the Speakerbox, but as Beck mentioned they are closed and I don't think their parking lot is big enough. The number of people last time would have easily overcrowded the paved area lot there.

I completely agree with you on the picture spots Beck. Why don't we pick out about 5 places we can quickly stop/take photos/hang out briefly? That will give us an idea for a route plan.

I'm not sure which mountain it was, but we did go down some mountain. I'd love to attend this, but I'm not at all sure what free time, if any, I'll be able to spare.

If the same elements fall into place, it will be a blast. It was one of the most fun things I did that year.

The only thing I don't like about that road is the ability for it to bite you. There's some seriously blinding turns and such that if someone else is overdriving can lead to a head-on accident for one of us. That would end our fun right there on a really bad note.

Good to know! Anyone have a way to see when the city/state has scheduled the re-paving? If we catch it when it's new it might be fun.

We went down the back side of green mountain on the exotic cruise. I don't know that they have repaved it but I didn't have any issues and didn't hear anyone else complain when we got to hooters for lunch.

No, if memory serves we only went up Monte Sano. I know we ended up at UAH's parking deck because I remember the cop coming up there and took a few pictures with us.
