But I don't know if I'll be able to make it out that way as early as 6:45 coming from Charlotte... between the wife having to do her hair, the two dogs having to eat/poop first, and the drive from Charlotte... my best bet might just be to get to the show by 10 Sad

On a side note, pops said I could drive his '74 FJ40 to the show from Lewisville... but I'd have to pay for gas, and the Chevy 350 only gets like 8-10 mpg. If only I had a trailer [and hitch].........

I may be game for the convoy. I usually take 29 to 85 to 40 I believe. I actually don't know the roads I have traveled them so many times I have forgoten them. I will need like a exit number before the rest stop to look for.

The rest area is just after mile marker 139 on the right as usual. Exit 138 with the Red Oak Brewery is just before it.

Actually now that I have thought about it 86 is the route that I take to I40 from 29.

You'd be most of the way to Chapel Hill by the time you ran 86 all the way to I-40. You could join everyone if you came down 29 with no problems, but 86 will take you too far out of the way for the convoy most likely.

I vote that we start the convoy in Charlotte, so my gas mileage will be excellent. K thanks guys.

Hmm, I don't know if you'll save much once you give me the extra $45 to get to Charlotte and back...

If you're just heading up 85, you could still meet up with us, but you'd have to leave pretty early. At least you save some gas on the second half of your trip.

So scream at them like Gunnery Sergeant Hartman while fashioning as many guns and knives as I can hold? I think I can do that!

im going to have to remove myself from this convoy ...as much as i would like to be a part of it i need to be at the staging area very early to help welcome all of you as you arrive. If someone could step up and take the lead on this that would be greatly appreciate it.
