Be sure to be at the venue to get your credentials stamped for the long hauler award if you're doing that. If you go to Bangshift.com you can get lots of info under the Hot Rod Power Tour thread.

I actually signed up the 80 bucks to register for what I thought was the full tour (including the Long Haul)...

So, I'm not sure if that means I do have to stick to a set route then?

What's really going to be weird is doing this tour in essentially a new car. I'm so used to my Google Maps and how I get from point to point with that. I'm hoping the Mylink navigation will do ok. The thing about the Audi Google Maps is I can set it to prefer to not take highways. Over the last year, I've seen some very cool back roads all across America because of that. We'll see how the Stingray does...I think it has other good qualities I'll like over my Audi :)

3rd tour this year...and a new ZL1 for the ride. back roads, and side trips with groups definitely make the whole thing my favorite annual event. I usually pick hotels out of town in the direction of the next stop...don't mind cruising at night and I find it helps with traffic to let the group get to where I am in the morning and then tag on.
3 weeks!!!!

That $80 is for the long haul, which gets you credentials for swag, etc. You don't have to stick to a set route, just get to the venue and clock in, then check out all the cool vendors, products, show cars, participant cars and make new friends. You'll meet some great people from all over the place that will become good friends.

If you have offset tires, which would you bring? I had a flat on the way to Texas last year. Got to the dealer early in the morning and they picked one up for me in a neighboring town and put it on. Expensive, but you gotta pay to play..........:doh:

I plan on meeting a friend Friday. He lives 30 minutes from zMax. I have a room reserved at Homewood Friday night. Plans are kinda loose right now.

Cool. That may work for me. Do you have people together for that already?

driser 05-21-2014 10:36 AM

I think Jim was talking about going up Friday.

Last I heard the muscle group was talking about going Saturday.
