Camaro5Fest IV ...Mid Atlantic Final route W/Hotel stop in Dayton OH on July 31st
 
1 Attachment(s)
Here is the list of attendeed so far!

This is going to be an awesome event. 11 hours can be done in one day or two. We have chosen two days with a stop in Dayton Oh on July 31st. We will depart August 1st at 11 am to Lucas Oil Raceway, which is about a three hour ride. We will meet up with all caravans or groups coming down I70 from points north, south, and East. Feel free to reserve rooms at the hotel udsing our group for a great group rate. Let me know if you want to travel with us.


Initially we were set to go two routes, but the amount of people dropping out seemed to change the thought. We will head north together for those who will join in. I hope everyone joins up. If you are going to meet in Fredericksburg, there are hotels, or you can meet us in the morning.

We are going to stay off 70W until Columbus OH due to all the traffic. It is terrible this time of year and the maps are littered with construction east of Columbus. We can duck under and make better time. The route is attached. I will list the eating spots this weekend. If we eat in Athens, they have a parking garage on the block where we can safely park. I am looking at other spots as well. I will keep us safe. :thumbup:

So, who is going???:drinking::drinking:


RdBlan2 is the group leader for Hagerstown MD? Please contact him if you are meeting up with him at the outlets.

Hotel info is listed below for those wanting to get a room the night of July 31st. This hotel is located about 2.5 hours out from Indianapolis, and it is situated on I-70 right after the I-75 junction. I figure this will be a great location to group with other caravans and make a grand entrance into Indianapolis and Lucas Oil Raceway. :happyanim::headbang::drinking:

The hotel is a large hotel with plenty of rooms and a huge parking area with security. They have started us with 25, and will increase as we go over. Any travelers can reserve to this group if you are going to LOR. Judy Snell is the coordinator. She has given us the ability to cancel room reservations by 6pm the night of our stay. If you feel you will be going and you want to get a room with the group, or if you are with another group and want to stay and hook up with our group, call and book a room. [U][COLOR="Blue"]The room info is listed below. Due to there location and the amount of travelers, I can see these rooms and the hotels in the area booking up fast. Book as soon as you can, and if plans don't work you can back out up to 6pm on July 31st, the night of our stay. I look forward to meeting up with everyone soon... :drinking:

I was going to say the same thing. Chances are it won't get much closer than it is now. This one should be a good cruise for you guys.:thumbsup:

For sure..:headbang:

RxDoc08 11-29-2012 10:04 PM

Trying my best to convince the wife to go back to Indiana, but I don't think it's going to happen. We had a great time meeting everyone last year, but she wanted to go somewhere new this year on our vacation.

Twoblindsheep 11-29-2012 10:20 PM

man last year i believe i was the only one from DE to go lol...
im also a part of CICC but i was pretty sure i was the only one from DE lol

edog 11-29-2012 10:38 PM

I was just giving others the option to coordinate if they want. I will do it. However, i think going west on 64 would be a better route based on the highway designs. It will be less congested. Unfortunately, this will cut about 60% of the old group out based on their location. Someone would need to coordinate the northern va group.

I can get the hotels to meet up at. Then another cruise from there.

Cutting people out is a great idea. I might even be one of those people as I'm not sure where 64 is. Last year the ride out was just a little too crazy!

edog 11-29-2012 10:54 PM

I agree, but i think the issue stemmed from the rigid caravan. I think it would be great if we traveled in packs. Smaller groups arriving at the set destination, then coming together closer to Indy as a caravan. We could meet up at the same hotel or one closer.

edog 11-29-2012 10:57 PM
