were going to meet at a not yet determined spot in nashville at 6am friday morning and leave from there.

paul and i both offer our places for sleep to make it easier on the guys comming from down south so you can leave at a sane time(fuck a 15hr drive at 3am)

its a 12 hr drive from nashville so that will put us there at 6pm(+ 1 hr time change) so at 7pm. plenty of time for chillin for friday.

we will be traveling at 74-76mph the whole way. no faster, no slower.

we will stop for a stretch bout every three hrs(some peoples circulation sucks balls)

gas stops will be determined by who ever has the worst mpg in the group. coughboydcough...


we are not open to compromise. if you dont like how we are doing it, then feel free to travel at yer own pace and well meet up with ya when we get there.

paul and i sat down and hammered this out and we both have bent for the greater good of the pack with our decisions.




hope this works for yall and hope to see you either in front of me or behind me in june!

:high5:

Re: the caravan to nesm

i think other guys should come up thursday night and chill at my place. I have fit 5 in the living room before, I got a couch, recliner and a big air mattress. That will give us that much more of a better start time in the morning.

Figure maybe Titan Stadium could be a good place to meet up, easy to find, and very close to the interstates.

If we get an early enough start there should be no reason to speed, the hell with driving all that way back up there for a court date later. This trip with gas and hotel is going to be expensive enough, I don't wanna add a hundred dollar speeding ticket on top of everything.

Don't worry the soccer mom will have a FULL cooler of sandwiches and snacks for the road trip. :lol:

Re: the caravan to nesm

hmm i might drive south to meet up with you..
when it gets closer PM me your number and we can figure out what would be a good exit for you to meet up with us. When we are on the road I will call you and give you a good estimate on when we will be passing by. Actually that would probably be a good time to stop and stretch or get gas too.

I am so hyped to go, I was looking through some pics and it looks like it will be fun.
And if everything works out, it looks like there will be 50-60 truck attending; including the Trailvoy guys! Its going to be much bigger then last year for sure!
