My daughter's first trip to the Tail o the Dragon

Turns out that I have an engagement in NC at exactly the same time SHE has a break from school! So, it's daddy/daughter road trip time! Momma stays at home. This will be one HELL of a haul, but we have family on the other end, so it's worth it to her.

I'm thinking the X5, but we won't have so much luggage that I would HAVE to abandon the SC'ed 540. Better I think of it though, the X5 is enough to keep me out of jail on such a trip. At least we can hope! Here's the 'fun' part of our trip. I hope to stop and get some pics. It all depends on how patient she is at this point in the trip.

The X5 is shined up, filled up, and packed up. Looking for a pre-sunrise wakeup if we want to make Spartanburg for a little 'Homecoming' side trip. For those wondering, above is the Tail of the Dragon, Great Smokey Mountain Expressway, and Blue Ridge Parkway. Should be fun.

I've decided not to obsess over the trouble I was having with my wife's D90. The pics aren't technically great, but they are a wonderful reminder of our time together! And by the way, that one at the Zentrum in SC? A full 12 HOURS after we left that morning. Still smiling! What a TROOPER!
