So I've been passing the idea around some of the site members about a get together. Issues, of course, are dates, events, length of time and geographical location.

For location I'm sort-of stuck on Georgia. There are drag strips, at least two members who live close and know of events and such, and maybe could find some sleep-over places (if only a campground).

I was thinking spring or early summer next year, when y'all have the rides out.

So help me flesh this out, I'd like to see how much interest there is in this kind of thing, and I'll take care of organizing it if need be.

I'm a little biased myself. I think that Columbus Ohio would be a great place....Centrally located in Ohio, and Michigan, Kentucky,Indiana,Pennsylvania,W.Virginia are all with in a couple hours drive. There is also a dragstrip (National Trails) where they hold the Spring Nat'ls, a camp grounds, hotels, lots of places to visit and cruise to,...You name it we probably have it in Ohio:thumbup:

Ohio

Man it seems as if Ohio is the center of the the universe!There is sometype of big aviation museum in Dayton,plus plenty of other attractions there for the ride home for people to hit.You have Kings Island going south in Cin,Ceder Pointe north in Sandusky(Coolest park).Ohio is perfect,Im in.Watch out for cops on the interstate though,sneaky boogers every 1/4 mile apart!!!I counted 47 in the way up to Toledo over the summer,just one way.

I say Ohio, we already have about 5 known board members from there, and k-star could ride with me.

Or you guys can all come to my house, I don't think it would be a problem for 20-30 of you to live with me for a few days, I live 20 minutes from Cecil County Dragway.

i'm all for a road trip, ohio, georgia,myrtle beach, its all good to me.in reading some of the replys just a few thoughts.


dont worry about having your street machine on the road, although we like cars and the more the better the main point is to meet the drivers, if we do it in the spring /early summer i'll be in the blazer anyway.

mabee it would be a good idea once you find out the list of people that think they could make a road trip take a poll and pick a location central to the most people.

the other thing to consider is that if you dont have the funds to travel yourself get together with members near you and have one person pick up a few people and road trip pool that way you could split gas and lodging expenses.

i think michigan and minasota are close enuogh that you coul meet up and head out as a group if you want to .

sound like fun to me:cool:

If it goes thru,guys can map out their route and meet up with others on the way,kinda be like a train of rods,or whatever.I always carry electrical parts and my "Smallblock Chevy"tackle box.It has 9/16 and 1/2 wrench.A 7/16 for headers,a fire extinguisher and cell phone.Each cruiser make up a small box of in case tools and stop to help someone out who may need it on the trip.

thats the spirit there, the more people help each other the more people can go.
