Busy week and weekend at the Tail. An 18 wheeler came in northbound and Killboy was able to get in front to warn oncoming traffic. One rider didn’t heed the warning and ended-up under the rear wheels of the big rig. The rider suffered serious injuries to one arm. This truck driver will likely lose his license after THP get finished writing the tickets. TRUCKERS NEED TO PAY ATTENTION TO THE WARNING SIGNSJune 7, 2015-Summer Weather Forecasts
Tail of the Dragon, Cherohala Skyway, and Moonshiner 28 Weather: It is typical throughout the summer months for the weather reports in the mountains of western North Carolina to call for 60% chance of thunderstorms. What this really means is there will POSSIBLY be an afternoon shower. These scattered cells are small and short lived. They occur in the period of 2 pm to 4 pm and then the sun returns quickly drying the roads. There is no need to cancel your trip here because the weather says 60% chance of thunderstorms. Many days we don’t even see any rain when its predicted.April 20, 2015-Custom Signs
Big ZDAYZ turnout this past weekend with some 1,100 cars. A nice day on Saturday, but minor rain typical of summer days. The rain is usually spotty and short lived. Our custom signs and free stickers were a big hit. If you’ve got a rally or a group coming to the Dragon, give us a heads up and we’ll have custom signs and free stickers.
