OK SKY owners...we had 2 SKY's at the 06-24 NEO/PA Summer BBQ and they are coming back
I also have PM's from other SKY owners who want to run the OHIO twisties with us

so here is the OFFICIAL INVITATION

DATE JULY 29TH...THIS IS AN ALL-DAY EVENT 200 miles of twisties

Start 10 a.m. at MM193 on I-70 east of Cambridge

The route SR513 south to SR78...East to Woodsfield....Pick up 26 south for 58 miles throught Woods National forest (these are profiled in car & Driver as being in the top 25 twisties in the USA)...dumps us out at Marietta at noon for lunch.

Then SR 7 along the river for 15 miles to Little Hocking where we pick up 3 x 5 (SR555) which run 66 miles north on some of the nastiest twisties and blind rises you will find short of Tail of the Dragon. We carry a stock of dramamine for those who may (or WILL) get car sickness
Run ends at Zanesville about 3 pm followed by a BBQ in Millersport.

There is no cost for the run ...but if you come to the BBQ there will be a nominal fee for food etc

As a special enticement there will be a pre-run test run this following Monday JULY 3rd at 10 am for those who want to preview the real run.
Starting point is the same as above

so let's get involved this time people.

post below or PM me...to join the NEO's on a great OHIO Twisting to the River run

Cincinnati folks

I plan on joining on this event. If anyone from the greater Cincinnati area is interested, we could drive over together. I have driven part of this route with the BMW Z3 / Z4 club and it is awesome..... not to be missed. If you are interested, contact me and we'll put something together.

SKY-baby...because it doesn't start at a town ( mile marker 193)
best you can do for mapquest is key in either Cambridge Ohio...or Quaker City Ohio and then pan back out from there

if you have a map of Ohio...find the intersection of I-77 & I-70...go east 15 miles...pick up 513 at mm193...follow it to 78..go east to Woodsfield...pick up 26 from there all the way down to Marietta. Then pick up SR7 (the river road) and follow it 15 miles west to Little Hocking. Pick up 555 at that point and follow it north to Zanesville

and VOILA you have the run.

Map Courtesy of DeLorme on my laptop

Thanks for the directions Druid.

See if I got this right.

Delorme calculates 164 miles, 5 hours (I assume this means at the speed limits.)

Nice job Captain What?

the mileage seems a tad light...but maybe I didn't reset it (DIC) at the proper spot

Time of 5 hours seems long-ish....but not too far off...We did it 2 hours to Marietta...and 2 more to Z-ville...with a half hour lunch break at Wendy's

We are definitely budgetting min 5 hours for the cruisers.

Will you be a sweeper ?

Dave...per not on other side

please tilt map to 45 degree angle (think Google Earth) so we can show all the twisties...the blind rises and the 90 degree fall offs at the bottom of a huge hill - which you can't see coming till you get around that last bend:willy:

I looked it over pretty thoroughly, to make sure the software didn't install any shortcuts, but there could be some in there, the only way to be sure is to set the resolution to about 2000 feet per screen, and that'd take me all day to review the route. Call it 164 miles, depending on your routes through the bigger towns. :lol:

That 5 hour estimate is based on the speed limits. Might be OK for the cruisers, definitely, easily beatable by the runners.

No I can't be a sweeper on this one, but would love to do it. I'll have put 1800 miles on the Sol by the time I'm back to Wisconsin tomorrow night.

Kathy is coming by the motel in an hour to lead Beth & me on a farewell short twisty run.

Like I said on the other side, I'll keep this one in the (computer) memory for the next time I get back to Ohio.

If anyone has Delorme Street Atlas, and wants a copy of this route, feel free to PM me with your email address and I'll send the data file.
