Red face Mid Atlantic Caravan Final route, W/Layover in Dayton Oh

Here is the list of attendeed so far!

This is going to be an awesome event. 11 hours can be done in one day or two. We have chosen two days with a stop in Dayton Oh on July 31st. We will depart August 1st at 11 am to Lucas Oil Raceway, which is about a three hour ride. We will meet up with all caravans or groups coming down I70 from points north, south, and East. Feel free to reserve rooms at the hotel udsing our group for a great group rate. Let me know if you want to travel with us.


Initially we were set to go two routes, but the amount of people dropping out seemed to change the thought. We will head north together for those who will join in. I hope everyone joins up. If you are going to meet in Fredericksburg, there are hotels, or you can meet us in the morning.

We are going to stay off 70W until Columbus OH due to all the traffic. It is terrible this time of year and the maps are littered with construction east of Columbus. We can duck under and make better time. The route is attached. I will list the eating spots this weekend. If we eat in Athens, they have a parking garage on the block where we can safely park. I am looking at other spots as well. I will keep us safe.

So, who is going???


RdBlan2 is the group leader for Hagerstown MD? Please contact him if you are meeting up with him at the outlets.

Hotel info is listed below for those wanting to get a room the night of July 31st. This hotel is located about 2.5 hours out from Indianapolis, and it is situated on I-70 right after the I-75 junction. I figure this will be a great location to group with other caravans and make a grand entrance into Indianapolis and Lucas Oil Raceway.

The hotel is a large hotel with plenty of rooms and a huge parking area with security. They have started us with 25, and will increase as we go over. Any travelers can reserve to this group if you are going to LOR. Judy Snell is the coordinator. She has given us the ability to cancel room reservations by 6pm the night of our stay. If you feel you will be going and you want to get a room with the group, or if you are with another group and want to stay and hook up with our group, call and book a room. [U][COLOR="Blue"]The room info is listed below. Due to there location and the amount of travelers, I can see these rooms and the hotels in the area booking up fast. Book as soon as you can, and if plans don't work you can back out up to 6pm on July 31st, the night of our stay. I look forward to meeting up with everyone soon...

Looks like you can take me off the list

I work until Thursday at 8am. I was hoping to meet you all after work Thursday morning like last year. That sucks because the 2 hour cruise was my favorite part of Fest

Going to be a lonely ride for AdamZ and FireCracker

I'm still in and meeting you in Hagerstown. I got your PM about driving straight through or stopping in Dayton. Which is it?

What do I need to do for the "leader" in Hagerstown? Just get folks there at the right time? If so, I think I can handle posting a thread here with what time we're meeting, especially since you already said what time we needed to be there! LOL

Also, my car likes gas now, so I may need to stop a little more often than most which is a good time to get out and stretch our legs with the larger group if we can plan to stop every few hours.

The leader just needs to make sure everyone who gets there is with them and headed in the right direction.

I'll do it then. I'll have the gf with me and she's detail oriented! Let us know about the straight through or Dayton stop over.

With this thread, it's looking like most folks want to stay in Dayton.

Alright then...LOL

The itenerary is posted and we are ready to go.

To communicate, we can use walkie talkies. Also, if anyone has a smartphone, load an app called "ZELLO". It is a walkie talkie app for smartphones. It works on android and apple, and it works quite nicely (thank you AdamZ). It can create groups and we can communicate openly with the group.

Debating meeting up w y'all at Cumberland and then continuing on when you guys stop for lunch. Might be the best of both worlds - camarovan cruising, but still get to speed on my own without the accordion effect for most of the trip

Lol, Dorfmac...

I do not picture this caravan getting bigger than 10. Lol I assure you the accordian affect will be non existent.

I hope to see you at the rest stop.

Wow. What a difference a year makes! I didn't think the effect of having it in the same place twice in a row would be so pronounced! I assume that's the major reason...
