Atlanta Porsche Enthusiasts

Mark Lamarsh has created a Face Book group of Porsche owners/enthusiasts and had his first mountain drive this weekend. Small circle of Porsche owners but it was good to see old friends and meet new ones. I took my 2013 991.1.

We met at Perimeter Mall and caravanned on 400 North and met at the usual Chevron on S Chestatee then went to Suches.

MDGA then Wolf Mt Vinyard

Mountain Drives Georgia is a group led by Travis, Tyler, and Cameron dedicated to provide a safe group outing for drivers with any car model.

They alternate between Saturday and Sunday Mountain Drives. They are very well organized and encourage/sell/provide radios so drivers can know when there is a safety issue or be alerted to the next turn, etc.

Prior to the rider Seyhan had invited a small group of us to go to Trip Campbell’s luxury garage man cave located across from Road Atlanta. There I met, by coincidence, TJ Vogt, Vice President of Caffeine and Octane. Caffeine and Octane is the largest car gathering meeting the first Sunday of every Month at Perimeter Mall in Atlanta/Sandy Springs, Georgia.

The purpose of the watch party was to look at the first episode of Sam Low Car Show that was filmed at Trip’s man cave/garage airing on Motor Trend

Seyhan, Sean, Alex and I decided to stay at Trip’s Garage instead of going with the group on their spirited and well organized run.

We left Road Atlanta to have lunch at Wolf Mountain Vinyards where TJ had arranged Karl Boegner to show us his Porsch Collection. Karl’s garage has been showcased on Caffeine and Octane’s TV show airing on NBC SN and interviewed by the Worlds 3rd Porsche Enthusiast Magnus Walker

Mountains Drives Georgia Group

Seyhan introduced to this group. Met Tyler, and admin, at the Quiktrip off 400 at Exit 12b. then met up with the rest of the group at the Chevron, our usual spot.

Tyler sold me a radio for $40 with plenty of accessories. Clutch when riding with a group. Then Cameron, Tyler, and Travis went over the safety protocols as well as the groups.
