After the winery's we will drop across the Ohio river into northern Kentucky and after winding our way eastward we will make our way back across the river to spend the night in Corydon Indiana.

On Sunday Sept 4th we will depart Corydon to travel a west to east loop and make a stop at Indian Creek Winery Indian Creek Winery and then travel to Huber Orchard, Winery & Vineyards Huber's Orchard & Winery to enjoy tasting and lunch. After lunch we will travel on to Stream Cliff Farm Winery & Tea Room Indiana's Oldest Herb Farm To round out our day of tasting and driving we will end our travels in Madison Indiana early Saturday evening.

Sounds cool - I'm not sure how well 'wine and winding roads' go together, though... ;)

Wish I could make - I used to work in Indy and am a Boilermaker alum myself. But too far away now... have fun, y'all!

Actually, it's a 1973 Ventura. I bought it as a 6-cylinder and put a Chev 302 in it from a 1967 Camaro. That was one wicked engine! I loved that car, but sold it and left it back in the Hoosier state about a decade ago...

I took possesion of my '07 GXP about 2 weeks ago. I guess I should update my avatar. I can unequivocably say that it is the most fun I have ever had driving.

BTW - The very first car I ever owned was a Pontiac Acadian. I bet no one here has ever had one of those!

If I remember correctly, the Acadian is from the Canadian side of the border and appeared simillar to the Chevelle.

About the Traveling

Hoosier GXP

Is the level of the traveling
cruising (calmly motoring from Winery to Winery to Lunch ...)
OR
driving (as one expects on the Runs at Nationals)?

I would have to say we are most likely somewhere in the middle to slightly above. It will not be a leisurely drive. I try and stay within the speed limit when I lead a run but would say that we do push it in the twisties but not to the extreme. So I would have to conclude we would be "driving". Hope this answers you question.
