Anybody driving to C5fest 2

Is anybody planning on going to Arizona. If so are you driving or shipping your car out. I am thinking about going. It is just really far, and I am not sure if I am up for that drive. Trying to decide.

Not sure on what it would cost to ship. I will have to look into that as well.As far as stopping to sleep that would be a definite.

Shipping and flying is boring.......driving IS the way to go, if you are going don't deprive yourself of the road trip experience.:5thgenvert:

I doubt I'll go. Way too far. Almost no one from New England went to the first one in Valdosta. I think one from Ma and maybe one from R.I.
I left from Va with 13 others from the Mid Atlantic group. We had over 40 in our caravan by the time we got to Ga. A really great few days. That was close by compaired to this one.

It would be over $1000 to ship it there and ship it back. Plus what are you going to do, fly out there, stay in a hotel and fly home? LOL you're looking upwards around $2000+ for this trip at the lowest.

It would be awesome to actually road trip it out there in the Camaro if you were actually into having fun and being adventurous...oh yeah ,and if you had vacation time to burn. Transporting a car (read: this car) out there and back is a little silly.

I think I'll take my Honeymoon instead.

Hopefully they have this in the Northeast one time.

I think there's too many good local car show venues to consider doing an extremely long haul for a C5 Fest in the West. If the C5 Fest came to the Mid Atlantic area then I'd probably be there.

I wish camaro5fest the best but I doubt they will get anywhere near the numbers Valdosta Ga got. I think 500+.

Although I'd love to go just way too far. The 450 miles/9+ hours to the Buyers and Builders Oshawa Meet & Greet back in August was enjoyable - got some of the road-trip experience without the wear & tear on car and humans...

I am really thinking about it, I went to both Valdosta and Oshawa and a trip out west would be awesome. If anyone is thinking of going from NY or PA etc hit me up.

If any other New Englander's go we might be driving through PA (good God that's a long state!) so maybe we can join caravans!
Right now the map shows me going through that way so..
90% sure I'm driving (at this moment in time)...

+1

2485.94 miles, and 38hrs and 43 mins from my house, according to MapQuest...

Not gonna happen for me...:(

Maybe Oshawa next year...

Also, the Camaro/GM Nationals in Carlisle, PA are a sort of 'C5fest'...I went last yr and this yr...this year there were over 500 Camaros there...not sure if they were all 5thgens, but a ton of 5thgens there, and I got to meet quite a few more C5ers than I met there last yr...plus, the Fbodfather and his crew go to Carlisle too, so it's a win-win, IMHO!!!...

I'll have to keep my eyes on this thread too... I can see the New England caravan joining you guys somewhere in PA since it's our most logical route west.

I think the New England caravan will be joining the Canadians in Dayton, OH the night of the 11th. Check out either of our threads for more info!

I'm going to Arizona, which I do every year for the winter months, Dec thru Apr.
If the c5fest is within those months then for sure I'll be there. This is our 2nd trip to the Phoenix area with the 2010 Camaro 2LT and believe me she rides beautiful thru the mountains at 80 MPH.
