I'm sure Dennis will bring some along too, he has a friend who brews moonshine. I've had that apple pie before, killer stuff!
Oh, and on that itinerary - we're having breakfast at 6:00 am (buffet at the Quality Inn, Spokane) and leaving at 7:00 am. Hopefully everyone will have filled up the night before so we can just hit the road!
Our club meeting is tomorrow night, I hear our t-shirts will be there!

There are 3 of us leaving southern Seattle @ 10am. I don't know if you want to meet up, say Ellensburg WA? ETA for us would be around 12:30ish.

I can't meet up with the group because I have to work for a little while that day. We won't leave until at least 2pm or later. I think the group is leaving around 10am or something like that.

I'll be to Spokane in enough time to meet everyone for the cruise to Billings. I'm sure my ZL1 will be using that sport mode and magnetic ride quite frequently during the drive lol....

Just incase you missed it, Ladybug's Mom, GeekfreekScotty and us are rolling out of here June 25th, 10am. We will be picking up Scott somewhere on Hwy 18 on our way out, he's in Kent if you want to set up a meeting point. We will also be grabbing up some of the Canadians in Ellensburg on our way to Spokane. We would love it if you wanted to join in.

I would but I'm working part of the day. Not sure what time I'd be able to get out. I might be able to leave at 10 but doubt I'd be able to meet up with you guys. Maybe I'll pass you on i90.

Lee is leaving later too, if you want someone to cruise with. He has a ZL1...that should keep you busy
If you get to Ellensburg before me, cheeseburger, fries and a coke better be waiting for me

With this being the last weekend before we depart, I thought it would be a good time to remind everybody: If you don't have a radio yet, it would be a good idea to pick up a pair.
I've done enough Camarovans now to know that radios are vital on a long trip. We used them all throughout the Lake Tahoe trip, and much of the stuff we did down there with all the other Camaros would have been difficult, if not impossible without the communication radios offer.
I've been in other Camarovans without radio contact, and as Brenda would say, it's like herding cats.
There are a lot of things to consider on long trips, and when you add a dozen or so other cars, those things get magnified. Bathroom breaks, gas/food stops, emergencies, navigation issues (i.e.: "Hey, we're lost!"), hazards, points of interest, cops...you get the idea. Cell phones are okay for some things, but if you've ever tried to use them on long trips, you have no doubt experienced some of their limitations. In spite of what their commercials tell us, the truth is that there are a lot of places they don't even work. If they do work, it takes time and attention to find somebody's number and dial it. And a cell phone can't be used to call everybody in the line and say "hey! I just blew a tire!"
Often referred to as "blister pack radios", FRS/GMRS walkie talkies are available all over. They vary in price depending on the manufacturer and the range. Motorolla, Midland, and Cobra are the most common brands you will see, and they all work on the same frequencies. Longer range is good, but not really necessary for the length of a Camarovan. And don't really expect that the 35 miles on the package is the actual range you will get. These radios don't operate on citizens band like the walkie talkies we had as a kid. So if you actually have a CB in your car, it won't be able to talk to them.
I recommend, if you have the choice, get the ones that come with rechargeable batteries. And a car charger would be very handy, as I've seen some brands will run down before you reach your destination for the night.

Trust me: You will want radios on this trip. I urge you to pick some up this weekend if you haven't already!



And while you're out shopping, here's something to think about:

This happened a few days ago.

If you've been lurking around C5 for awhile, you've probably run across "The Stig" at some point. This was his car. At the end of May, a fire started under the hood as he was driving. Fortunately he got out okay, but there wasn't much he could do but stand by and watch his beloved Camaro burn.

http://www.camaro5.com/forums/showth...33607&page=108

My apologies to The Stig for using these without his permission, but I thought everybody needed to see this. He didn't have a fire extinguisher, and he is regretting it now.
A fire extinguisher can mean the difference between minor under-hood damage or a totaled Camaro. And in my personal experience, that difference can be less than a minute. I bought one before we went to Lake Tahoe last year, and my wife looked at me kind of funny. It's been there in the trunk ever since. (Although I've been reminded by The Stig that the trunk is strictly electric, and in an electrical fire; may not be accessible.)

Just something for you to think about while you're shopping...


SEE YOU ON THE ROAD TO STURGIS!
