Yeah I am thinking about changing my route to see some of the sights on the way. Well not really for me because I go out west alot for my job so I have seen alot of it. But my son has never been out west so this is mainly for him. My wife isn't going I don't think. She's not really into the car thing lol

this freakin' stinks.... I loved this year's Camaro5fest and I was looking forward to next year. This year was such a smash hit in GA with tons of attendees. why in God's name did they pick AZ for next year???

that basically puts the entire east coast of the country SOL. and whether people want to face it or not, the eastern half of the country is where most of us Camaro5 members live. most people like me only have so many vacation days each year. driving out to AZ would easily kill four days (round trip driving). that would leave me with only three days to enjoy a week's vacation.

freakin' wonderful.....

Last year all the west coast people were in the same boat. They are just trying to be fair.

I'm surprised that there were people who still expected it to be on the east coast considering it was said a while ago that it would be on the west.

i know time off for most is the issue and maybe not the miles, but it seems to me that if it's a long trip for you it would be an opportunity to take a trip that you could turn into something you talk about the rest of your life. i have a harley that i'm always looking for some reason to put miles on it and i have a friend who was in the hospital over in daytona that i need to go see. over 2000 miles round trip. i'm not flying and missing this opportunity. i jumped on the harley and took the ride of my life! caught hwy 82 out of tusaloosa and stayed on it till i got to hwy 1... saw way more than i could ever take in. unbelievable trip! so all i'm saying is find the back roads....and make it a trip you don't think you can ever top. it was 4 wks ago and i'm still careful about sitting down....but i'd do it again....in a few more weeks. even if it's out of the way if you're coming from the east coast area hwy 82 is a great way to go.

It was said last year before Camaro5fest 1 that it was Moving to the west coast for number two, With that said next year it will be in a new place and some of the west coast members will not be able to make it.

But if you can come out with or with out the car, We west coast and the Texas members will be Happy to meet and see you.

well looks like I'm SOL...I understand the "moving the location" thing every year to accomodate everyone & I agree with it, but this just sucks. I bought my Camaro about 2 weeks before the C5fest last year & couldn't go. Looks like I'll hope for next year to be a more reasonable drive.

31 hours 18 minutes / 2042.51 miles is just too much for me. That's about $400 round trip just for gas.

someone give me the zip code to this place. I want to Mapquest this trip from Orlando just for ooops and giggles. I'm almost afraid to see how many miles it would be.

For those that are ONLY worried about miles and not necessarily time off, take it from all of us from last year when we say it is completely 100% worth it. For most (if not all) of us, Camaro5Fest was the best weekend of our lives. I said from day one, I don't care where it is this year, I'LL BE THERE!! I'm ready for another amazing road trip full of new sights, new opportunities, and lots of new friends!!!

Just use Chandler, AZ. That will give you a good idea.

I did that drive in June, coming back from Mobile, Al at the end of the Power Tour. Just keep in mind, in West Texas on the I-10, the speed limit is 85 & wide open out there. We made it from San Antonio, TX to Phoenix, AZ in 1 long day.

With that being said. If the west coast does not represent and bring in larger numbers than last year, I honestly don't think it will ever come back to the west coast.

So come on west coasters, let's get our numbers up. Those traveling from farther away, I can't wait to have you all out here and show you guys how we do it on the west coast. No matter what, this will be a fun year.

Hope to see everyone there.
Just curious why there has to be more cars then last year to be considered a sucess.
