If it is alright with Barry, I would like to use this thread for talking about setting up a caravan for SDAC goers! (could always move it to Events)

I am thinking that we need to setup a meeting place for those going Friday, June 24th to Cinci. The goal is to leave Breezewood, PA (turnpike) at 10am. It will be pretty straight forward of I-70 to I-71, etc.

PS. Tell everyone if you are trailering or not. I am still deciding on whether I should(n't). The current trailer I have is heavy, high, short tongue, and no breaks. I need to find a new one that is opposite of all those! Then I will tow!

I'm in, could start from the Harrisburg east Pa tpke exit at about 8 am to be at Breezewood before 10, I think. Have a brand new 05 Ram/Cummins that I picked up last week, will be towing one of the TDs, haven't decided yet for sure (all 3 need some work) but will probably be the white 85 600 ES convertible.

How long of a drive are we talking to Cinci?

I'm still not sure if I trust the GLH driving that far, even though it has never (knock on wood) let me set anywhere....

We will have a planned stop some where around the PA/WV/OH borders about half way. It will be a good place for gas, stretch, and catch up. I think we will have a few people with cell phones for if someone falls back or breaks down.

Just outside WV in Ohio there is a town that is perfect to stop in. For reference, when we travel to Cecil and go that route, it takes 10-11 hours with stops. (580 miles)

Elaine and I will be heading out around 8AM to shoot over to Breezewood. Where is everyone planning on meeting?

Joe, do you guys want to meet here at my house around 8 or would you rather just continue across the Turnpike? I plan on shooting out 283 to Harrisburg and getting on there. Breezewood is usually an hour and 15 minutes from that point. Maybe less:eek:)

Are you purposely trying to punish yourself???? EWE!!!!

Steve, good question. The caravan will be:
Me
Dave
maybe mike, donno yet( you watching mike??)
Kevin S
Dan G
and possible walt
and maybe justin cronk.

I hear that bruce bender is going, but i havent spoken to him, and i do not know about brian slowe. We will once again have out FRS radios (oh what a joy that was on the way home). Meeting up sounds good to me, but i havent been to your house in a while. i will keep you informed.

FRS? Is that one of the CB channels? Will a CB hit it? I can bring my CB along then and be able to communicate.

The rf bands are close enough that your CB will overpower some of them and they will hear you no matter what channel the FRS radio is tuned to. You probably will not be able to hear them though.
