Not many days till we all see each other and have a great time in the Black Hills. So glad you all are coming and looking forward to meeting you all face to face.

Our group, Camaro Club of The Rockies has grown so much over the past year looks like we will end up coming in to town in waves. Several cars will roll into Sturgis on Wednesday night, but most of us, (about 26-28 cars) should roll in around 1 pm Thursday. I'm excited !!!!

I have a pair of radios too but the last time I tried to use them--the trip to Paradise--I couldn't find the channel everyone else was on. :\

That reminds me that I better find out what channel our group will be running on since we will be the last 3 to join up with the camarovan. I'm still bummed about Mike not getting to come with you guys since he is the one that dared me to wear the crazy costume I have at Sturgis. There's always next year I guess.

See all of you in 6 days!

Ours are set for 5.1. Wouldn't work on 5, don't know why....
Also for anyone who may be interested, we are meeting up with some friends from Spokane are (and by gosh, they have Camaros too) for dinner at the Hong Kong buffet, around 6-7pm. Come one, come all. I guess the buffet is right by the hotels, with good parking

Mike came up with a breakdown of all the rest areas along the way - might come in handy! I'll let the guys in Spokane know about the Hong Kong Buffet - sounds good!

I'm going to have to get that stuff from Mike.

As for radio frequency: The radios have 22 frequencies/channels. The little numbers that appear below the channel number are interference eliminator codes. They minimize interference by blocking transmissions by unknown sources. Not all the FRS/GMRS radios have this capability. (Including the one I'll be using on the trip.) To make things simple, I say we just make it Channel 5, as in C5, or 5th gen. That should make it easy to remember.

Oh, and I'm not sure if it's the same on all the other radios, but on my Motorolas, channels 8 thru 14 are all FRS only, and broadcast at a lower power. (i.e. less range.) It's supposed to save battery life, and might not be an issue in a short Camarovan, but something to remember if you are a fair distance from the group.

Got done spraying the 3M paint defender on the front fascia today. It isn't the prettiest stuff in the world, but I'm hoping it saves us some grief in the long-run.

Something else to remember on the way back...

There is no 28% liquor tax in Idaho, and some of the shops are still cheaper then you'll find here locally as well. You only have to pay the ~6% sales tax in Idaho.

on the serious - don't hurt yourself or anybody else trying to make up too much time at once. i know it sucks being behind & these cars can more-than-easily play catch-up, but it's better to get here safe
