Ok, so who wants to caravan to the Nationals this year?

I believe I was planning on heading up the 20th since registration was just to early on the 21st to feel like I could make the trip in time.

So who else is going and what days, and where do we want to meet up?

::EDIT::
We're going June 20th (Wed) and the official itinerary is farther down in this thread.

I like the twentieth for the same reasons. Early registration.

We could organize this by all the southern folks meeting in Orlando, then as we go up, picking up others along the way.

We would need a cell phone list so we could communicate with those linking up along the way.

Yeah I should have been more specific, I was mainly meaning the SSS Orlando locals and we can meet up with our JaxSolMates on the way and then various others and make a caravan.

I made plans to leave the 20th. I'm in tha Atlanta area and could meet your Northbound group somewhere along I-75 coming up through Atlanta. I'm assuming you will be cutting off at Chattanooga and taking the more scenic route to Nashville rather than following 75 up to Knoxville then heading west on I-40? PM me when we get closer if you don't have specifics on the thread. Thanks

Its my plan to arrive on the 20th. Dori and I drove together to KC last year and meet up near the FL/GA border midday-ish, we stopped for dinner in Atlanta and hung for a bit with Bigbooks and still made Nashville and beyond that same day so I would think it would be very do-able to gather a decent FL group and pick up an atlanta area group and all go on together. Of course the group can only go a quick as the the majority of the group is comfortable with and I suspect there would be a wide range of comfort levels but heck that stuff works itself out easy enough.

We'll have to pick a spot to meet our N. FL friends and another spot along the way to meet our Georgia friends. once we pick spots to meet we can build our driving path around that.

Do you have a particular place in mind we can mapquest to get a location so we can build a trip itinerary?

Do you have an address or a local.google.com coordinate/url for the location you guys meet up? We could always meet there again this year then head north to meet up with more Georgia friends.

ok, I guess I'm in the right thread now, thanks for the directions:lol: Now see why the Brats need to caravan, we can't even find our way to the right thread. I know of some of us from Southern Fl want to caravan as well, maybe we could have a meet up middle way in Fl for all of us to join up ? I'm sure someone has already thought of this and as usual I missed it. Let me know , I need brought up to date please:yesnod:

As it gets a little closer and I have time I'll try to plan a route and some stages.

I was thinking we'd have 3 major stops. An initial meeting in Orlando/Lake Mary area where all us Orlando-ers can meet and we'll wait for all our Southern-Floridianers to meet up with us. Then we'll convoy to the FL/GA border area to meet up with our Northern-Floridianers, then head up by Atlanta to meet up with those crazy Georgians and anyone one else in the area willing to meet up.
