I knew you were going Brad. That is like asking if the sky is blue.

If anybody from WI or northern IL is going it would be cool to caravan. I will be the car with a sign hanging in the car "944fest or bust"

Brad.. Why the 3 and not the 951? I was hoping you would jump on the dyno.

Cause it needs a lot of crap before I'd drive it that far.

I'm really hoping to make it, but right now it's up in the air as to whether or not I'll be able to.

Where would we meet up?

when is everybody traveling? Are you leaving Friday night? Saturday morning? What time are people leaving Ohio on sunday? I might have a hard time caravaning since I will need to make frequent stops about every 2 hours. I will have my 2 childeren with us so even up front leg room will be at a premium.

Is everybody camping out?

For those that would like to join the SE Michigan Caravan, we're all going to meet at Tony K's at 9am (or a bit before) on Saturday in Toledo for a 9:30 departure :

(Tony K's: 2325 Shoreland Ave., Toledo, Ohio 43611)

Directions from I-75/275 are as follows:

- take I-75 South to Summit Street. This is the last exit in MI
- the exit will dump you onto southbound Summit St.
- Cross the MI/OH line, soon there is a Kroger on left, plumbing supply on right, other businesses
- You come to a light, Shoreland Ave. Turn right on Shoreland. Ottawa River will be on your left side once you make this turn.
- Obey speed limit, you are in speed-trap Washington Twp.
- Pass TOLEDO sign on right, next block you will see brown brick colored apartments on right, "Riviera Apartments". Turn into parking lot, see Porsches.
- I'm in #217.


Directions for people who are closer to 23 or I-475:

- Take 23 into Toledo suburbs and go East on I-475
- I-475 ends into I-75. Go North on I-75
- Pass Jeep factory on right
- Pass Jeep factory on left and I-280 signs
- Next exit after I-280 is Ottawa River Rd.
- Exit Ottawa River Rd, turn left at the light.
- Cross bridge, turn right on Shoreland (Citgo Station on corner)
- River is on your right. Riviera Apartments are about 1/2 mile on left.
- Turn into parking lot, see Porsches. I'm in 2325 #217

(Tony K's email is racing_nut_1@yahoo.com)

Current plan (once in Ohio) calls for taking I-280 south to (SR?) 420 to US-20 to US-23 south (N. Fostoria Rd.). Then on to Strington Rd. (east) to N CR-5 (south) to Tiffin-Fostoria Rd (east SR-18) into US-224 (south of Tiffin). Then southeast on Melmore St. (SR-100) then east on US-30 just north of Bucyrus. Then south on SR-602 to east on Crestline Rd to a right on Middletown Rd. Then another right onto Twp Hwy 48 which joins SR-97 just east of Galion. Then onto SR-314/97 east through Lexington - "shortcut" on Castor Rd to pickup 97 again. Then left onto Twp Hwy 323 (or Coding Limit Line) proceed under I-71 where it seems to change to Vanderbuilt Rd. Continue generally NNE to a left on CR-341 (German Church Rd) then to a right on Possum Run Rd. Fest is on the right at Snow Trails Ski Lodge (3100 Possum Run Rd, Mansfield, OH 44903)

Join us if you can or, we'll see you at the FEST!

Brian
