Driving the Dragon

I’ve had quite a few people ask me what it’s actually like driving the Tail of the Dragon. In the past I’ve always pointed them to a few of the professional DVDs that are available showing MINIs zipping in and out of the turns from every conceivable angle. However sometimes all it takes is some poor quality video taken by a point and shoot camera to convey a sense of pure unadulterated automotive joy that is the Tail of the Dragon. So with that in mind, here’s a little something that I just dug off the SD card that had been sitting in my forgotten point and shoot Pentax Optio.

Since we had both a full load of luggage and some splitting headaches to deal with from the night before this was definitely our most relaxed run of the weekend. Think of it as a relaxed Sunday drive through the Dragon.
