Seems most of the conversation on this is happening over on Facebook. For those who don't go there we are at 5 rooms booked and 5 cars and couples. Looks like we should have a good turn out for this first time run. Hoping for a minimum of 10 cars!!!:thumbs: Reminder, you can book your room and always cancel with out penalty one week out.:thumbs:

I am really glad we have an early run this year!!!! It has been a long winter. I am eyeing the long term forecast and am hoping to have my Sol on the road maybe the later part of this week. It will only be limited based on sunny days. I have underground parking so my Sol can always go back into hiding / hibernation if weather dictates!!!!:willy:

Looks like my wife is away that weekend and I'll have the kids (I can strap them into a cargo carrier can't I?).

Have fun and I hope to catch the next one.
