Because I am still working and could not go to Kanab due to the distance and available time, we opted to attend a small 18 car tour in TN, in Crossvile.
I can tell you these were some of the finest T roads I have ever been on and the scenery was outstanding.
The group who attended had cars that were very tour ready, everyone stayed safe with no major problems mechanically.
The rain did not deter anyone from each of the four days of touring and George and Brent did an outstanding job with the motel arraignments, along with the locations of good places to eat. And it was all without any fees for the tour. Amazing!
I would suggest that if you have not been to this area, you consider going there. It was truly a great tour and if they put on one next year, we will be back to wherever that destination might be.
Thank you George and Brent for a great time. You guys are the best.
This was the perfect example of what can be accomplished with minimum expense and maximum fun. While the big tours are fun, these smaller tours are a blast. It has motivated us to get ready for our 4 day club tour next year.

A absolutely great tour, great folks, and of course our wonderful TN landscape. Judy and I met a lot of nice folks that came to the tour that did not sound like they were from around here but were really nice to be with. I believe we visited somewhere around seven county's and our car registered 590 miles Thur night when I loaded her up for the trip home.
I also agree with Tom & Jim. A grand tour of a large area with water falls, mountain T roads & drove through several beautiful Parks. The modern cars was very friendly with us also. A friends T drowned out in a down pour & Tom & I went back to pull it up the hill to dry it out & a young guy in a new Cadillac sports car offered & did pull it up the hill for us.
George, Brent & their wives did a great job.
First time I have ever had a Cadillac tow a T by a young man who had more tattoos than most folks. Great young man, got out in the pouring rain and helped hook the car up. Got the car started and he unhooked and said by, never to be seen again. Never saw a Caddy with a 4 speed and what appeared to be a hot cam.
At least Roy did not have to hook his 27 and tow the non-running T.
A fun time was had by all!!!
If we don't see pictures it never happened.
Pictures of the Caddy tow vehicle? Guess it never happened then cause the rain at the time seemed to take precedence.
No Tom - the tour. Let's see some pictures.
Unless someone else takes the pictures the driver is busy all the time,those are some snarky roads especially Barnett Bridge Road, if your tank is not full and your low band not right you won't make it, it is too bad the gravel roads were damp, the last time we went on them you couldn't see 20ft in front of you, just got a run down from George at lunch.
Can someone post some contact information for the event organizers or maybe a website for the tour? I've never heard of this tour and would like to attend the next one if I can get enough advance notice to get time off from work. This one is close enough to where I live I could attend. Thanks for posting and letting everyone one know about the
well it was in Tennessee. What did you really expect??? Of COURSE it was wonderful and the scenery was beautiful. A BGO for sure.
someday I won't be working every weekend....

I was unable to participate in the tour but did manage to take some photos of the group when they stopped in my village for lunch.
Now I believe there was a tour.
Thanks taking pictures and for posting them Julian.
