I'm definitely thinking about trying to go. Still need to check my schedule and with kids schools and college, but I think a caravan of TX Camaro's would be AWESOME idea!!!

I figured most everyone has to wait til closer to the time as most people have a family/work/school etc. Just throwing that idea out there for everyone who is thinking about going or wanting to go.

I noticed that you are in Tyler. We have a house off of FM 2661 we go to every other weekend and I was wondering if you have Camaro get together's anywhere around town on weekends?

Not that I've been to, no. All my events have been with the DFW group, since there don't seem to be too many of us around the East TX area!

Pretty sure we'll be headed out there too. But, I'm working on trailering mine out there. I already put 1,800 miles on it in two days. ....got 4,600 on it in 3 months. I don't want to put 2,000 more on it over a weekend. That's just too d@mn much for me.

We'll see if things change. I can easily get off work....it's just $$$$$ and getting there.

Think the wife wants to go too.

TEXAS Caravan to Camaro5 Fest!

Wanted to get a thread started with info and planned routes for those of us who plan to attend the Camaro5 Fest, 16 - 18 April 2010 in Valdosta GA!!

I think most (at least Dallas, south Texas and west Texas) will head out IH10 east through Houston seeing as it's a straight shot for the most part.

From San Antonio it's about a 900 plus mile hike and figure about 15-16 hours. I plan on leaving Thursday, 15 April around 9 am and hitting Houston around 12. Figure we could all meet up for lunch there (need to figure out a rally point) and then caravan in to Mississippi on the Gulf Coast (Biloxi MS)for a night's stay and hit up the casinos for the night?? We should be in MS in about 6 or 7 hours from Houston...puts us in there to eat and play around the casinos around 7/8 that night? Head out on Friday morning around 9 am and then hit check in at about 2 or 3 in the afternoon. About 6 hours of driving on Friday.

Thoughts? Anyone want to help get this together? I know this is my plan and if anyone wants to join in post up...should be a good time!!

I started a post awhile back on this to get a feel and see what everyone wants to do.

Camaro5Fest

I'm sure most folks will know after the first of the year but it never hurts to get a jump. I'd love to have a large convoy of Texas Camaros heading east.

I would imagine folks up in the northern part of Texas would take I-20. But I guess that's what this thread is for.

Sorry Brother...did a quick search but the internet is slow here in Afghanistan and it timed out on me so I wanted to post up what my plans are.

Maybe TAG can merge the two threads so we have all the info together?

Sounds good and as we get closer to the new year I'm sure more folks will be posting up.

Like I said, I got my room reserved and based on mapquest, I think I have my plan unless we deceide to do something as a group coming out of Texas.

Look forward to being in a huge caravan coming out of Texas!

I'm driving mine there too...she's meant to be on the road!!

Merge? Sure. Say it and it shall be done.

I did change the title though, so it was easier to recognize....hope ya'll don't mind.

I'm looking more and more into trailering...but, as I do, it looks like it is going to cost some cash. Poor gas mileage towing my bad boy will run some big $$$. That's the main issue. I can cut the cost down by 70% or so just by driving my own car.

Damnit, man.... This is tough....
