We have done Skyline Drive for the last 6 years and have had as many as 50 cars in our group. We have never had any problems with group photos or the rangers. In fact the ranger came over to check out our cars. I don't know much about the Blue Ridge Parkway and never heard of getting a permit to run it. Is this something new? I hope we can all run together.

Hope to see you all soon

No that may draw some attention from Rangers.He also mentioned that it can't look as if it was a planned event, thats why keep it in small groups. I don't know how many cars we are going to have yet but looking on here and on Facebook at the interest showed I'd say 8 - 10 cars right now. My wife and I are still going to take this ride and if anyone is still interested we can still do this in small groups and meet up off the Parkway at pre determined lunch spots or gas stations whatever, Maybe each group can have a leader who will stay in touch with other groups. Any thoughts? I do believe that we are not the only group ever to ride on BRP so lets do this
In the past, we just DO it. Heck, I've seen half a mile long train of Mopars headed the other way once. I don't know how the Rangers are on the northern sections though. I'd love to get up that way... what would happen if the rangers do spot a group of cars driving together. It's public land, NO?

Why is there a limit to how many cars can use a road?

Hi all, Sorry it's been a while since I've been on here but I was trying ti figure out some personal matters that will be coming up in June and it looks like, I hate to say it but I have to bail on this trip. It just won't work for us. Again I'm sorry to get you all excited about this and it doesn't mean you all can't do it , I just won't be able to do it.
