Well I got a tripkit already and have been looking at it. It says We will be taking I-75 most of the way and then onto I-71 and also I-65. Anybody else going this way :-?

We are leaving Wednesday morning sometime :roll:

We will be leaving Cleveland Wednesday morning going down I 71. What are you thinking in terms of timing?

Nothing is concrete! Just an idea to leave Detroit by 8am? :eek::

Guess it is an 8 hour drive overall not wanting to set any speed records or accumulate tickets. :cool:

Would guess arrival at 71 would be in about 5 hours or about 1PM? :)

With planning we make make this more realistic. And with cell phones, should be easy to link everyone up. :D

Comments? Corrections? Additions? :crazy:

It would be good if we could link up. We have a TR 2004 Z06 that is stock at this moment.

Ok, lets discuss this...

8 am start time? As I work nites I'm not sure how the traffic will be on 75 at this time though :-? I don't think there is a good time to be on 75 :rofl: I really don't want to get caught in morning rush (parking lot) commute :blush:

I was guessing 9 or 10 with pit stops. I'm not sure what is attracted to these cars more- dust or cops?? So, I'm not going to be in a real big hurry. No radar detector either :bmad:

2 way radio's work great also, but cell phones are ok too.

BlkZ06- Is sleep the same as rest?

Old Red- We won't be to you until afternoon at best, I think? Not sure, as of right now :roll:

Madvetter,

We may start and stop in Columbus for lunch. I have to work out the details. If you are actually coming thru Cleveland to pick up I-71, We will try to hook up somewhere along the way.

Old Red,

My map shows us going down 75 thru Toledo :-? and then down thru Dayton. I think from the looks of it, it shows us turning onto 71 just after Cincinnati :yeadog:

Is this close to you at all? Lunch sounds pretty good :yeadog: :D

I have a TR 04 and would be leaving AA on Wednesday also, sometime after morning rush hour like you were thinking. I would like to join the MI caravan. I will have a cell phone to keep in touch along the way also. I'll keep checking this thread as we get closer and as more of the details get worked out.

Madvetter,

We can probably meet up with you either in Cincinnati or somewhere on I-75. I will check on mapquest to see what works best.

Hope to see you on the way to BG

Hey Vettemann7, :ity: welcome aboard. I'm sure there will be many changes from now until we leave :crazy: Keep in touch.

Old Red, that sounds great. If you know your way around Cincinnati maybe we should meet up before we get there :D :yeadog:

I'm on the fence as to what time to leave...Once we get to BG I would like to clean the car up and then go to dinner before all the action starts. As this is my first Fest, I don't want to miss very much :D

:cheers:

This is our first one, too. We could cut across OH 18 to I-75 at Findley. If we met you there, there would be plenty of time to caravan together.

If you say so :D This is more your neck of the woods than mine :yeadog: Just don't get me to far off the beaten path ;)

What time is a good time to meet up? I can figure out what time to leave home from that :thumb:

Are we going to meet up at a rest stop, restaurant, or gas station. I guess it doesn't really matter.

Reproman- any more thoughts :-?

Look up last years thread, I gathered everyone together at the White Castle in Florence KY. There should be a map and directions there. It was a good meeting point for people coming from the NE (Columbus) and the north (I-75 Dayton, Toledo, Michigan etc).

Hopefully, a few more will check in, then we can layout the best meeting points and times. :yeadog:

I travel Ohio a bit so any coordination there should be pretty easy. :eyes:

The opportunity for "sliders" sound like a real magnet! :sneaky:
