Sorry, thought we had posted up about the room.....back a page or two maybe?

As far as the movie night, Hot Rod sent out an email last week and I assuming it was to everyone who has pre-registered. You might want to check with Family Events if you haven't received a confirmation email or any other type of communication and make sure you are registered.

As stated earlier, I am heading to Charlotte on Saturday, so between now and then if anyone wants to travel up with me post here.

Also, if anyone hears of extra things to do/see on the trip post that as well. See y'all in a few weeks

Think I remember meeting you last year. Didn't you trade out the car partway through the tour?

What I have heard of is:
Muscle Car museum in Sevierville, TN on the way to Knoxville
John Dillinger site - I think in Indiana
Antique Archeology in Iowa

So I'm new to doing the power tour. Still have yet to set up hotel rooms, though I'll do that over the next couple of days...I may try to use the ones listed earlier.

Do the cars generally stay together, or do you just make your own way to the next city. I prefer back roads to major highways, so I'm curious how much of that will be happening. Example...would the route take you over The Snake or The Dragons Tail?

I'm not looking to go fast...it's just I prefer to go the road less traveled.

The road less traveled, except for HRPT participants, is what we take. Very few major highways. There are usually small groups of cars together, some take other detours along the way, leave a different times, but you end up at some of the same gas stations, etc. There's a tour route, but you can change up whatever you want. 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!!!!
