Default Caravan

Shamelessly steeling Willies idea on 'The Wagon Train' to Insightfest in Madison, I have hijacked the idea to suggest caravanning to the New England meet at Mikes'.

I'm in central PA and noticed 12 potential drivers to join in from west, south, and east of here.

Already got some responses and it's looking like there's 5 'possibles' already.

I pm'd a number of folk including: rayholan, jime, atikovi, wills, freezin4, geocougar, catawalks, galevin, sasha, 06 blue, crxnut2, dsteele713, kly3cyl (attending fest in Madison).

Potential route from my area is I-80, I-81, I-84 to Hartford area, I-384, US-44 (scenic route thru CT), I-395 to Mikes. Route could be modified to accommodate.

Should be fun.

I probably will drive from IN but taking the GF and dropping her off in Rochester so she can see family. I take it that the caravan will not be going thru Rochester?

Galevin, I don't have my list with me at the moment, but there's someone from up that way joining the caravan east of Hartford. I think he's running I-90 then dropping down into the Hartford area. I'll get the list in the morning and find out. We'll be heading east out of Hartford on I-384 and US 44 (scenic route across CT).

Edit: Found him in my pm file: WillS.

Edit, edit: maybe you 2 could meet up and ride I-90 together ?

Is the caravan going to arrive on Thursday or sometime on Friday? I don't have an itinerary, but we'll be driving up the east coast from Orlando.

Looking at Friday travel to arrive Friday. You comin' up I-95 ? Maybe you could go up past New Haven, CT to Hartford area and join in for the scenic road on US-44 ? I'll look up the meet spot east of Hartford and reply back shortly.

I know it's more direct to stay on 95 then hit 395.

Would enjoy adding another Insight to the caravan.

edit: I think Geocougar is leaving out of NW Jersey, may / may not fit into your route plan.

Looks like 5 for sure, 1 strong maybe, and 2 more interested. I have pm'd the specific meet up areas. I'll provide updates as we get closer to travel day, which for the one day drivers is Friday August 15th. Timing will be interesting.

I'd love to come. My Family is half in Pittsburgh and Half in Vermont/Conneticut. Unfortunately just like the Midwest meet when I was in Germany I will be too busy this weekend. I am bringing my son back to his mothers to start school in Florida that Monday. Maybe I will pass someone on the way as I am leaving Friday for Florida. Have fun!

Can start a mini caravan here.
My schedule is flexible and came meet up anywhere from the Lake to the thruway or just pretty much anywhere.
