Default Southeastern Ohio Performance Driving Run Saturday Aug 25th (Columbus Area)

https://www.facebook.com/events/351665598243372/

Alright, so a couple years ago, I ran a late fall drive in the hills of Southeastern Ohio. We had over 15 cars come out for an amazing day of driving. Well, turns out people had more fun than I expected, so I'm putting it together again after a crappy weathered fall 2010.

SATURDAY, AUGUST 25th, 2012. I will be hosting the second official SEO Driving Run. This will be a full day of driving some of the most gorgeous, technical, and (best of all) FUN roads in the Ohio area. As most of these roads will be 45mph/55mph zones, with little to no 5-0 presence, we will be able to have fun without being dangerous.

**AS ALWAYS, THIS EVENT IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. THE LEADER(S) WILL BE TRAVELING WITHIN THE LEGAL SPEED LIMITS AND OBEYING ALL OHIO TRAFFIC LAWS. YOU DRIVE AT YOUR OWN RISK ON THIS CRUISE**

The Plan (Times are all estimated):
8:00-8:30am: Meet at Salt Fork State Park Lodge parking lot (Interstate 77 - Exit 47, head east 5 miles on 22 and enter park, follow directions to "Lodge")
8:45am: Driver's Meeting
9:00am: Depart Salt Fork
1:00pm: Arrive in Marietta, Ohio and break for some food and another gas up. 3rd Street Deli is our lunch pit stop.
2:00pm: Gas up at Speedway (they sell 93 octane, no worries). Depart Marietta, Ohio and head west for the 2nd half.
5:30pm: Arrive in Caldwell, Ohio for some pictures in the area
6:00pm: Unofficial departing time back North or home for you southern folks.

The Route:

Details:
*Mileage from Salt Fork State Park lodge to Caldwell: 357 Miles
*Cost of Lunch/Person: ~$10-20 (restaurant is not very expensive)
*Route 78 is well-known for its extreme curves and views, and is sometimes locally referred to as the "Rim of the World."
*Car and Driver has called it one of the most scenic highways nationwide and uses these roads for road tests.

Additional Material (filmed and made by me):

These are a few videos of a portion of OH-78 from Caldwell to The Plains:

This is a crazy chicane and an example of not just the hills and valleys, but the extreme curves in this area:

This is a short documentary I made last year on Ohio Routes 78 and 26. I know, I know, it's terrible.

Here's a video of the last driving run we did back in 2009 ...

If anyone is interested RSVP on the facebook page or just meet us there.

I'm organizing this ... sorry :-/ ... Sunday just never seems to work out for me ... too much 'weekend bullshiat' happens on Sunday's ...

That being said, download the route map and run it on your own. I used to drive all over this area when I was at school at Ohio University ... some very, very fun roads that just make you giggle like a schoolgirl, haha.

For anyone that can make it though, please do come. There's no agenda, just a fun day of driving in the sun and the roads of Southern Ohio!

Tomorrow morning! Let's see some Subarus out on the back roads. Going to be upset if it's just me repping the boxer.

Didn't realize this went on. Are you thinking about doing this again this year?
