Hey Gerald

Are you gonna drive one of your cars in your fleet? Maybe Ray,you and me could meet up somewhere on the way and do a caravan?

Is that like Hell freezing over?

Wow...that would be very cool. Between that and MIMA you should be able to post some impressive MPGs on the way to Madison and back to Cleveland. I just did the Mapquest search....467 miles....better than the 850 to Mike D's...should be a breeze !

Eric put me down also.

Sounds like a great idea to me. It is pretty much a two day trip for me in Richmond. Maybe I could sleep on your sofa and get down to 1 day?
I'm near Cleveland, Ohio and have a couple of couches and air mattresses you're welcome to. We could easily do the drive from Ohio to Wisconsin the next day. It would be cool to have a Citrus parked in my drive ;)

Count me in. Maybe could catch up to a caravan. I'll travel I-80 out of PA across and IN. Up for changes though to meet with others for the train.

Mid-Atlantic group: what routes are being considered ?

I'm interested in learning about the reservations for rooms, old bones don't 'camp out' so well any more.

Mountain driver,
I am adding details in the second post of the thread including link to hotel. I copy/pasted the info below.

I also just made a separate thread so people can discuss hotel plans and talk about sharing rooms for the weekend.
http://www.insightcentral.net/forums/hybrid-socials-events/67313-share-hotel-room-insightfest-2015-summer-camp-edition-wisconsin.html#post742753

We reserved 15 room at this local hotel:
Cedarberry Inn
855 Phillips Ave. (Hwy 12), Sauk City, WI
Various rooms and suites available approximately $100 and up.
Mention "InsightFest" when reserving.
608-643-6625
Cedaerberry Inn, Sauk City WI

Sauk City is a small town, so it's kind of a captive audience if you plan to stay locally. There are a couple other smaller/older places as well. I just chose the Cedarberry since it is the newest/largest, had a pool, and expanded continental breakfast.
