I'm going to do some more checking on hotels in the Birmingham area, that Hampton Inn is pretty pricey, $180 night for a King, so let me check with the others that are in that area and along our route and I'll post when I have more information.

There is a group rate for the Camaro5Fest. I think the code was CFG but can't remember exactly. Put that in when checking availability and you will get the rate advertised (82.99 I believe).

I think we are checking on prices for a hotel in Birmingham for our convoy to stay at Thursday night on the way down there

Their cancellation policy is: Canceling your reservation before 6:00 PM (local hotel time) on Friday, 16 April, 2010 will result in no charge. Canceling your reservation after 6:00 PM (local hotel time) on 16 April, 2010, or failing to show, will result in a charge of 1 night per room to your credit card. Taxes may apply. Failing to call or show before check-out time after the first night of a reservation will result in cancellation of the remainder of your reservation.
i bet if you can't make someone on here would take the room. looks like I hope to be getting my car in the next month or so. woohoo

I better go ahead and book our room at the host hotel.

I agree that $180 a night in Birmingham is way too much. I am not cheap (really I am ), but that is way out of my range. Thanks for checking on that Abygale.

Maybe we can get an Arkansas group to join us (Kansas and Oklahoma) also.

I think this trip will be almost as much fun as the event.

Did I see that you are pulling a trailer Ject? I am also pulling my car on a trailer.

You saw correctly, I'll be pulling it on a 16' or 18' dovetail trailer... that's the fun part, I only pull a trailer like 2-3 times a year lol im a little rusty... haven't hooked it up all year.

and yeah, anything over $100 a night for just a place to lay my head & shower is some high dollar living.

EDIT: Take that back, I'll have to be pulling an 18' the car is 15.8' (190") long...

Booked our hotel room this afternoon at the host hotel. Got a double queen bed room. I was afraid I might I have to go to the next hotel since I waited so long. However, the back-up hotel is a nice hotel too and would not have been that big of a deal since it is close to the host hotel.

Big yes on the walkies.

We have some of the small ones. I also usually have a CB in my truck if I am driving it and pulling a car and trailer, but I believe the walkies work better when everyone is close. However, I like to hear the truckers talk about the cars in the convoy so I usually have the CB on.

I was wondering if you were going to go. If you had not gotten on I was going to e-mail you. Glad to hear you going too. Kim is taking her 2010 and plan on taking the Firebird.

I agree 100%. The trip is going to be as much fun and interesting as the event.

Okay kids... I'm talking to Wingate by Wyndham - Birmingham about a rate for us on Thur. night traveling to Camaro5Fest. I've looked at it and like all reviews they are good and bad but most are good 92%... I think we can get a good rate if there are several of us staying there... give me your feed back.. Less than $90.00 I'm sure.

sounds good, its just a place for me to lay my head down for 7-8hrs, sh!t, shower and shave... don't need anything special. Just need parking space for trailer
May want to send a message Abygale's way, she threw some suggestions in on places.
