Gauguing Interest: Summer Driving Tour, Southern OH

I think its safe to say that the weather is finally taking a turn for the Warmer. I just got new tires a month ago and I am ready to have a little fun and see the sights, namely around the fun and twisty roads that make up parts of southeast Ohio.

This is the route: https://goo.gl/maps/fJZNmAf6Tq82

So, who's interested? Timewise, sometime in July would be ideal for me, preferably a Saturday over a Sunday. We can definitely expect this to encompass at least half a day, a full day for some of us that have to drive to and from the route.

Depending on when it is I would consider joining in. Be at least a two day trip for me though since it is about a 6 hour drive to get around the lake.

Have you driven that route before ?

I am ashamed to say for living in Ohio for almost 30 years I have not explored south east Ohio much outsides of the Hocking/Athens area.

Are there any large meets you don't attend?

Yes, I have. It really is a blast, plus along Rt 26 there are a couple of covered bridges right off the road that are fantastic for a photo-op.

It has been about 2 years since I last tried it, and any reports I have had from the area say that the road conditions are at least good. Weather down there usually isn't as intense during the winter, so the roads dont see quite as much wear-and-tear as they do up here in the frozen north.

I might actually consider this, although it'd be a pretty long day for me (driving from and back to Columbus). Depends on when it is and what else I'm doing that weekend, so a 'definite' maybe.

I'll be coming from Cleveland, when we've done this before I've left mid-morning, gotten to the meetup spot a little before lunch, done the drive (with stops), headed home from Zanesville, and been home in time for dinner.

I'd be into joining. It's not too far from northeast Ohio, and I see at least another coming from my area. Not too many great driving roads out this way anyways, especially compared to growing up on the east coast where every back road is a great twisty one through the woods.

I think there is definitely enough interest to justify planning this. I will try to get some tentative dates together over the next week--this one has been hell for me. Sick kids, surprise inspections, and a guy getting shot outside of my place a work.


I will say right now that July 7th and 14th are out, and I will be leaning heavily towards Saturdays, which leaves us with the 21st and 28th.
