Miatas At The Gap XII

Miatas At The Gap XII, a gathering of Miata enthusaists at Deals Gap, North Carolina, took place the weekend of July 25-27, 2008. This is a video of highlights from the event, including footage from Tapoco Lodge, The Tail Of The Dragon, a night ride down The Cherohala Skyway, a run down Wayah Road to Fat Buddies BBQ in Franklin, NC, the gathering at Fontana Dam for the Dam Picture and the Saturday Night Beer Swap. Enjoy the highlights along with the music, which was written specifically for this event.

Music featured in the video: ARKiV - Carerra Appalachia

Here are details of next year's event:

July 23-26, 2009

Come and join the largest annual gathering of Miatas in the country! There will be vendors, free food, beer swaps, drives to area attractions (both natural and man-made), and of course... great roads, great people and great cars!

You'll see Miatas in every state of transformation, from bone stock to barely resembling the original vehicle. If you ever wanted to know if something could be done to a Miata, you'll probably see it here!

Vendors will be set up at both Tapoco and Fontana as we are going to try expanding to new horizons. Show and shine will be just about everywhere there is to park and a few places in between.

There will be drives to different locations, including Ellijay Road, waterfall tours, Fat Buddies BBQ in Franklin, and of course, The Gap!

So come and sit a spell and relax with your new best friends. If you plan on staying the night, I might suggest calling NOW! Lodgings fill up quickly and if they're already full, ask about a waiting list.

See you at the Gap!

And here is a video of The Tail of The Dragon, with 318 turns in 11 miles:

And, be careful when you go...because the there might be Chaos on the Roads that is ignored by the THP...and hope that an idiot tractor trailer driver isn't coming from the other direction...


great footage / tunes ARKiV !!!

Thanks for posting my videos on your blog! I hope your viewers enjoy watching them as much as I enjoyed making them!

I thoroughly enjoyed watching them, and will try to get to the Gap to see the Miatas next year!

This used to be one of several political commentary blogs I ran until I got tired of updating several blogs, and consolidated them on Thunder Pig, and moved the group blogs to a Ning network.

These photos are a reflection of where I am throughout the day, and a celebration of life west of the Balsam mountain range in western North Carolina.
