It was good.... Just kidding.

Looks like Jim is in for the long haul, the muscle group is in for the first 2 or 3 legs, Dan is in for the long haul work permitting, and I am either doing part or all depending on Mid-ohio and Road America. Gina is supposed to be locating hotels for all is us to stay together (hotel not same room), but her reliability is in question .

LOL, well I have a couple of rooms already booked.

June 6th and 7th Charlotte - Homewood Suites/N Charlotte, University Park (lots of places to eat, about 10 minutes from track, stayed here last year) $99 for a suite with kitchen
June 8th - Dandridge, TN - Hampton Inn on I-40E towards Kingsport. $104
June 10th - Mansfield, OH - Hampton Inn $114

I think these are easy cancellation, so I can always change, but I like to get things planned early (and stay at Hilton and Marriott properties for points)
:cool:

Ok I am at least in through Norwalk.

Lol, trying to figure out why myself. :bonk: It's near a Nascar track (Mansfield Speedway) and I like to do some side trips, so I think that might be why. You probably noticed that HRPT doesn't take the interstate too much, so I was just hedging a bet I think............:iono:

Well um....just looking quickly at the map, um Mansfield is south of Norwalk and the next city is northwest of Norwalk..... Just sayin. Note to Gina...let's not stay with Diane in Ohio!

Lol, I like taking the path less traveled............sometimes it's good to find out what the route is before you plan..........which doesn't get released til close to the start. I can always change later if I want. Don't know what the Norwalk area is like either. Sometimes the venue isn't really close to hotels, or for example, in Memphis, the drag strip was way North of town, but the evening activity was downtown Memphis, so I was in between the 2, but more on the way of where we were headed the next day. Kinda hard to predict where the best place to stay is sometimes...........:iono:

I'm just messing with you....I have left all hotel planning to our travel agent (aka Gina), which is based upon the terrible places I got myself last year.

Actually I believe I will be going through Mansfield on my way from Mid-Ohio to Norwalk.

We should all get together when she finishes her research and plan the trip.

Hotel List
 
Here's what I've found so far. I'll update the list with more locations shortly. Most of the roms are available via Travelocity, cheap hotels, kayak, etc.

Also, there are several hotels listed on the Registration/Hotels page. We can book these same hotels without going through HRPT.

It looks like the fewest choices are in Charleston WV June 9 and Norwalk June 11. So, anyone planning to make these stops should consider making reservations sooner rather than later.

June 6-7 ZMAXX Dragway at Charlotte
(Walking distance):
Embassy Suites $150
Hampton Inn $152
Comfort Suites Concord $129
(5 miles away):
Springhill Suites $89
Hampton Inn University Place $84
Candlewood Suites University Place $77

June 8 Knoxville Chillhowee Park
Holiday Inn Knoxville $123
Hampton Inn Suites Knoxville $93
Marriott Knoxville $120
Four Points by Sheraton Knoxville $95

June 9 Charleston WV Downtown Kanawha Blvd
Holiday Inn Express Civic Center $109
Fairfield Inn $105
Holiday Inn & Suites $115
Hampton Inn $120

I hate that I can't plan this with you guys. :mad0259:

They are giving me more reason to get excited about this job though.

Just my opinion.....since your vacation time transferred over to the new job, you should plan with us. You can always cancel later if you can't go, but might be too late to get rooms with us later.

Glad things are getting better as the transition goes on.

Ok guys here's where I'm at, last year was a blast traveling with Dan, my plan is to plan for the long haul and hope its works out out for Dan, if for some reason it doesn't I might only do the first couple cities like Pat & Gina, unless I find someone to ride along with me so far no takers (wife, daughter, brother ), with David and Diane branching off in different directions I just don't want to make that long trip by myself. But I'm hoping for the long haul again, we'll just have to wait and see
