Attached, you'll find an itinerary for the 2011 NC Meet to be held in Boone, NC on Friday, July 29th and Saturday, July 30th.

We'll post a sign up thread.

The Blue Ridge Parkway is a Federal park. Blue Ridge Parkway - Home

Plenty of twists and turns and view points to take in the Blue Ridge Mountains about every mile. The Linville Viaduct is one of the best picture spots to view the parkway and get a picture of your Titan with a great backdrop. Bring your camera.

Grandfather Mountain, Mount Mitchell, Linville Falls have nominal park fees to get in but worth an hour visit unless you want to hike in which case, it’s recommended 2-4 hours. A trip to Mount Mitchell or Grandfather Mountain may require a jacket as those locations can be windy. Views and visibility change hourly!

Average temperature in Boone in July 76 degrees.

What to bring? A chair, hat, camera, whatever you want to swap at the Meet. All the food will be ready at the picnic site. A lot of people often ask to bring something which is great and always appreciated but the whole purpose is to come and have fun. We’ll have drinks, sides, desserts, and depending upon numbers either sub sandwiches or grill out.

This is first and foremost, a family-friendly event. Well-behaved pets welcomed of course in all areas where they are permitted. As you will see in a variety of stores and restaurants in and around the area, unruly kids will be given espresso and a puppy…(you can figure that one out.) Parents, guests, friends, and fellow Titan owners, please have fun and be safe while driving the parkway. Rangers and State Police will be out and around a variety of locations. The Parkway attracts drivers and sightseers which means that there are two different people out there; those that want to take the turns and put their vehicles through their paces, and those who want to drive 5 mph and stop every ten feet to look at the birds, bees, rocks, and trees along the mountainsides…

We picked Sleep Inn because it’s easy to get to and drive to the downtown area (basically turn left off HWY105 and go ½ mile!)

As we get closer and need numbers for reserving space at restaurants, some details may change.

What happens at the raffle? People will put out items up for give away and you will be given a set of tickets. You can buy additional tickets. There will be jars/cups for each item that you can then decide how many of your tickets will go to those items. We’ll have it all set up under a shade tent.

Anything else you want to bring like a sun shelter would be good. The picnic area is in the trees so we would be okay but in case people want something set up near their truck, there is no shade in the parking lot.

As we get closer, we’ll post up other details including contact information, last-minute logistics/maps, and some items to be raffled. See you there.

I might be sleeping in my T though and borrowing someones bathroom for 30mins in order to shower/etc. lol

I don't know if I'll be able to afford $110 a night, especially if gas keeps goin up!

Maybe someone will split a room.

I usually plan my NC Titan Meet, then drop the family off at the In Laws afterwards!!

The Taxman giveth, chances have increased we can be there this year. We have an 8 hour drive to Boone, and then we head to the coastal area on Sunday. We plan to stay Friday night elsewhere (it's our Anniversary) on the way to Boone, arrive very early in Boone Saturday and spend the night with everyone. I'm always in for Breakfast! This is always a great Meet!

Lucky!!! Its spring break in Alaska and its 7*F. YAY!!!!!! I havent had a tan since I came back from the desert errr. No one can get one here unless you go to a booth. Im looking at getting a convertible fox body mustang so the wife and I can have a nice sun cruising vehicle. 5.0L and a 5spd is a must though.

I saw your selling a Mustang and a Camaro. Mind telling me about them through a PM so we dont thread jack much?
