View Full Version : 2019 DGRR Atlanta Caravan NORTH

03-10-2019, 10:05 PM
Who is leaving the Atlanta area to go to DGRR 2019 on Wednesday, May 1st? Usually we caravan from the Walmart in Buford, GA (Exit 4 off of I-985) on Thursday after lunch each year.

Is there any interest in leaving on Wednesday this year, and meet a little further up off of I-985 at EXIT 16 at Lanier Raceplex. There are places to eat and fuel up off Exit 16, but we could stage the caravan at Lanier Raceplex to then do our usual stop at the Walmart in Rabun, GA. The raceplex would not be open to Karting at that time. You could see the facility and may want to stop to Kart on the drive back on Sunday.

Lanier Raceplex will have a small sign up "DGRR" on the grounds for caravan to DGRR parking.

I'll see all those who show up there tomorrow afternoon. BTW, you can travel up the I-85 side to get to Lanier Raceplex, BUT it is under construction and has uneven pavement. It's best to use the directions I've posted above.

Also, if you're not going to eat lunch at Chow Won with Phil, there's a great cafe that is past Lanier Raceplex on the same side of Winder Highway.... "Higher Grounds" 6700 Highway 53, 2nd Floor, Braselton, Georgia 30517. https://www.highergrounds.coffee/ They have awesome coffee.

Am I really driving up to Nantahala Village alone?* I never got a response from Phil, if he and any others are joining. I guess enough are not leaving on Wednesday from ATL area.
