can you check around for some spots super close to the interstate (on ramps/off ramps and gas stations) that can hold a large number of cars? since you are in the area, you can give us a better idea of where we can find a meeting point for the 4 different convoys that are merging right there
Sure. I have a friend thats native to the area thats gonna show me some spots he knows of today. Ill take some pics and pass them along of the areas that look the best.

awesome. Louisville is going to be our big meet up point with a lot of cars (in the hundreds for sure) by the time this is said and done... so we need some place that can fit us all but still allow us an easy access to the interstate (long onramps with no stoplights at the entrance preferred). Plus, we most likely will be making a few gas stations' day as well.

Ok so I drove over by the huge fairgrounds right off I65 and circled around to see if I could first find the baseball park the previous poster had mentioned. The ball park is unfortunately inside the fairgrounds. And the fairgrounds they want 8$ just to park and I know they host Nationals every august and its usually one of the first 2 weekends in August which Im thinking is gonna hurt us. Because everything in that area thats big enough for parking is gonna end up being used for Nationals. Im gonna look and see if I can find out if they've confirmed next years Nationals dates for sure. We drove on a bit and there is the huge UL Cardinals Stadium and there parking lot. I have to see if I can find out if theres a fee to park there or not. That could work if its a day that there won't be a game going on. So there schedule would have to be checked out. Theres also a huge mall off exit 127 Outer Loop going towards Okolona that is right off the interstate and has a large amount of parking. Thats as far as I got checked out today. I kinda got sick in the car and had to come home. Dinner apparently didn't like me. If I get a chance I'll go out next weekend and see what else I can find out there.

Edit: okay I checked the Fairgrounds and Nationals are set to be hosted August 2-5. So everything around the Expo center is gonna be packed and traffic in that area is not going to be pleasant.

I knew you'd be in for the drive. I'm planning on having the majority of the Greenville and surrounding area people meet up at the Wal mart in Traveler's Rest off highway 25 early in the morning. plan on rolling out around 7am.

for those south of Greenville, either meet up with us there or let me know if you'll be following me from Simpsonville

Guess point B on the map is Traveler's Rest? That would probably be best, although I love the drive up 985 through Dillard, Franklin etc to Asheville.......
but I think we'll be getting enough driving in........

yeah, point B is the walmart parking lot in TR.

I would love to go up 985 too... but I'll have a trailer on the back as will a good handful of people riding with us.

Those are easy solutions.........amazon has some badass motorolas for cheap. I was actually going to ask you about that as we got closer, I am planning on buying a couple just for my club.

We can use those on the ride up too.

http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-Talka...7916336&sr=8-3

I think the 16 mile will do, unless we are somehow have a insane 23 mile caravan! LOL

I did talk to my camaro gen 5 club last night during our monthly meeting. The president is very interested and a few of the other members interest is there. There were a few who did not know what the fest was so a member and I explained what it is all about and such. As it gets closer I am sure some of the group members will decide if they want to go or not, but I know for sure two other members and I want to join the caravan.
