This drive may be a bit of a gamble. Each car must select the first card of a poker hand, and then we head off on an easy morning cruise along US 64 East before we hang a left onto Wayah Road. This will get your coffee stirred, so hold on tight. 23 glorious, curvy miles later we connect with US 74, but not before we take a rest stop at the Nantahala River Put-In and pull the second card for each car. This section is more of a cruise to let you catch your breath before we join up with the best part of NC 28 South and head toward Franklin where we stop for a hard earned lunch and the third poker card. Don't get too comfortable, though. We have another seriously fun section of NC 28/US 64 to complete as we go south through Highlands to the Georgia border and Pine Mountain. The return westward goes along Warwoman to Clayton, where we pause again to breathe and pull a card. Then we cruise via US 76 back to Brasstown Valley Resort and each team gets their final card. May the best hand win!
