Default From York, PA...

Folks -

I'd be coming from York, PA, just started looking into the route, looks like 580 miles, 9 hrs, mostly on I-76 and I-70. That's a lot of driving, I'm not going to try doing that at night before and after busy days, although I heartily understand the appeal of minimal traffic, so leaving seriously pre-dawn at least makes a lot of sense. I've driven a comparable trek to eastern New Hampshire, boy was it nice to see the destination house... A lot of driving. I usually leave for work by 4:45 AM so I'm used to seriously pre-dawn driving.

Anyone interested in a Thursday daytime caravan? Our cars all have some years on them, usually with lots of miles, having potentially helpful fellow G1 Insighters nearby for such a trek could be useful at least for warding off Murphy's Law, increasing the probability that the trek will be trouble-free for all... Besides treating people to the sight of so many Insights together of course.

Roger

I had been chatting with Bob and we were talking about meeting at the McDonalds in New Stanton, Pa at 8am for breakfast and leaving from there.
Does that work with anybody else?
