RE: [DMCForum] Florida To Chicago Caravans?

In addition to the leaving date, has the route been planned yet?  Another
local owner here in Knoxville, TN will be trailering as well and would
probably like to caravan.  He is not on this list but I can pass information
to him.

I believe he is planning on leaving early Wednesday and driving all the way
through to arrive late that day.  I-40 runs east and west across the state
and I-75 runs north from Knoxville up through Kentucky.

Well, with only about 2 more weeks to go, what's the overall general 
plan so far for Florida owners who want to caravan up to the big show 
together?  Two years ago for Pigeon Forge we had one group leave from 
Daytona and another leave from Tampa, is that happening again, or are 
we able to have one unified group this time?  And who's leaving 
when?  Being way down south in the Ft Lauderdale area myself, I'll 
probably come up north the night before y'all leave and meet up with 
you for the rest of the trip, like I did in Daytona last time.

I'm assuming that it'd be at least a two day drive from Northern 
Florida to Chicago, so has anyone pre-planned where to stop for the 
overnight or will we just "wing it" (pun definitely intended!)

If possible, I think that it'd be nice to be able to arrive in 
Chicago a day early on Wed the 14th, both to have a bit of time to 
get a good night's sleep in before the actual show starts up on 
Thursday evening, and to attend the local extra events on offer -  
either/or the track/autocross activities that Rich Weissensel was 
arranging for Wednesday and the Delorean/BTTF barbeque at Bob 
Brandys' house Wednesday night (both are still mentioned on the 
Delorean Midwest Connection web site.)  If not, and we arrive on the 
Thursday, we should plan to get there as early as we can, as last 
time at Pigeon forge we ran a bit late and JUST missed the opening 
evening's presentation and food, plus, I understand that there are 
some tech sessions earlier in the day this time.

Also, I've still got an open spot in my passenger seat, and would be 
happy to pick up a rider, perhaps from someone else in the group 
who's trailering and has a few extra bodies in the truck/SUV and 
could spare one to keep me company?  I'll bring the laptop DVD player 
& gladly share it with you if the scenery or conversation gets too 
boring ;-)

So, what's everybody thinking?  If need be we can take this over to 
the more local FLDMC Yahoo Group for detailed more discussion.  We 
really need to get it all hammered out now, as time's getting pretty 
short, and unfortunately none of us has a REAL flux capacitor at our
