But it'll be FUN!!
Adventure is the spice of life -- suit up and get on board matey's!

Remember what it felt like being in a line of 18 Camaro's? (or for those who went Sunday and caravaned? or have EVER caravaned with a line of Camaro's..) - picture that across COUNTRY!!

Are they doing any of old Rt66? That would be extremely cool and nostalgic. That would be a really great time, but alas, family comes first...and my wife would have a cow. But damn that would be a fun drive!

Yeah year 3 sounds more likely. :( But I understand those west coasters need some Camaro love too.

No idea what route yet -- just putting it out there for anyone who's going to the fest -- so as it gets closer we cna figure it all out....like meeting up with other regions on the way...

I put in for 2 weeks vaca so

(That means I can't go to Chicago in Feb but :( Fest comes first)
Ok...I CAN go...wonder how I;d manage the rest of the year with almost no vaca...??

on the way there I saw a red Camaro..not sure if he was looking for the track but passed him going down the road twice.

Sux that many of these events are not bi costal..1 held on each side of the country.

Yes, they need to have 2 events for c5fest..
an east coast and a west coast event.

c5fest2 is too far away (2860 miles on google - one way). takes too long to drive there and back.

I would have at least 5 speeding tickets on a drive to AZ and back...

I'm not going. Well, maybe i'll fly in, but no plans to go right now. Besides, it's HOT there!

And I don't care if it's a DRY heat... so is a Sauna.

I'm planning on going... I just hope I can save up enough extra cash. It'll be over $600 just in gas, and we will need at least two hotel stays each way, not including the actual fest hotel. If I do go I probably won't have enough to actually buy anything from all the vendors that will be there...

I'm planning on putting half of each check between now and then away just so I'm not screwed...
I'm just b/c I paid my Chase Visa 1500 to get the balance down adn those Motherfckers just decreased my limit 1400 -- what a waste of $$!!
I could have put that on my Discover (that REWARDS me for being a loyal customer) for the fest! UGH!!!

I'm sure it takes A LOT to put on one event - let alone two...I bet that wouldn't be cheap at all....
Part of the fun is meeting all the other C5 peeps from all over


I'm psyched now though - I rearranged my school schedule starting next months so that I have those two weeks off class free!!

I've been checking out the map and figuring out how far we can comfortably drive each day.

click here to see map

I really don't think we want to do much more than 12 hours of actual driving time each day. That's still some pretty long days worth of driving. Anyway if that's the case, to get there by Thursday afternoon for check-in, we would have to leave on Monday morning.

I'm figuring we can meet up at our regular Gregg's location in Warwick, RI Monday morning. We can meet somewhere else if it's more convenient... If we take the suggested route from mapquest, Columbus, Ohio is about a 12 1/2 hour drive(734 miles). That can be our first leg.

Tuesday morning we leave Columbus and drive to Springfield, Missouri. That should be just over a 10 hour drive(640 miles).

Wednesday morning we leave Springfield and drive to Albuquerque, New Mexico. That is a little over a 12 hour drive(830 miles).

Then Thursday morning we leave Albuquerque and drive the last 6 1/2 hours into Phoenix, Arizona(417 miles) for an early afternoon check-in.

The actual time for each leg will of course take longer then the drive time I noted above because it doesn't take into account meals and fuel/bathroom breaks.

This is just a starting point to give us a frame of reference so we know what we are getting ourselved into. It may change some as we may hook up with some other caravans along the way.

now there is some forward thinking! You'll want to have a clip board to go along with that, I would think

Damn, those are long days. And lots of gas too. Just please don't end up like in one of those movies on the dark desert road, no gas station for miles, left for dead, with the vultures...then, along comes a semi...and who knows what happens after that???
:seesaw::fbodgou l1:

EDIT - you know, the funniest thing is there are less MapQuest steps to get form here to AZ then there are for me to get from here to my folks in PA...GO FIGURE!

I couldn't drive that far without getting a ticket in my Camaro...

And I'm not towing it that far in the trailer either...

Keep checking here -- I'm not as organized as some of the other regions but
It's a ways away so....no need to set the exact route into play at this second...


I'm keeping an eye on some of the other threads for caravan's to see if, once paths are set and others hook-up to each other, if any points along the way are good for us to join in....even if it's not until the TX area....

Of course everyone's free to go their own route -- since there are only two (maybe three ) of us going at this point....

But this is the thread to post any ideas or whatever for the caravan...
