    I wish I could make it, but I am coming back from a business trip late on Friday night, and there is no way I could make it up in time... I did drive the Talimena Byway earlier this year; it's a fantastic route. Have fun!

    PS: Shouldn't this be posted in the Meet & Greet forum?

      Yeah I won't be able to make it either as of now. I have family coming to Austin from Ohio and I'm not sure when they are leaving yet but probably not until late Saturday night. Sounds like fun though.
