So, I'm in for this year. Still need to book my hotel and ****, but I'll get it done. Who's all leaving when? When is the big Junkyard trip in PA this year? I'm not booking till I know who's driving when, I'd like to be paired up with at least one other car. I'll more than likely be traveling with a friend of mine in my car as well.

5 weeks and counting to finish A LOT of mods. Dammit.

I have my reservation starting Thursday, so I was looking to head down in the morning, looks to be a little over 5 hours driving, so I should be there in the early afternoon. Where would you like to meet up?

And you are right, not much time left for the mods.

That would probably work for me.

I would make it a little later though. I plan on driving half way there on the 4th, finding a place cheap to spend the night, then meeting you guys at the yard thursday morning. How about making it 10AM? Eastern time of course...

Damn id still love to go but not too sure about the funds, My car is also in no condition to be shown, I was hit overnight not too long ago and need a new front bumper and fender as well as some paint work. And as loud98 said Id have no one to go with as well.

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Most of the cars there are daily drivers. I have some many little dings and stuff on my car, if I'm going to win anything its going to be with the interior.

Sounds good on that end Bruce, I can meet you there around 10. I might get there early and take a nap in the parking lot. When I went in 2004 I took a 30 minute power nap at Hershey park when I got there and was good for the day.

So, who else is down for driving the overnight Wednesday Night? I have the RB1 this year, so screw the maps! Paging Scott...

I was thinking of leaving of leaving RI somewhere around 2:30-3 am. When I left in '04 Scott and I left Seekonk MA at 2:00 am and got to breakfast before 8 if I'm not mistaken, just outside Hershey Park. Since I don't need to be to the yard till 9, maybe I'll get to leave later. Bruce, what's the addy on that yard so I can start calculating?

I got my GPS working os I'll be navigating there all high-tech like. The voice guidance still doesn't work, but it still beats a regular map. I jsut need to figure out how to put a map other than CT on it!

Are you guys planning on meeting Bruce at his house again this year? If so I'll shoot for that time as well.

If they leave Scott's place around 1:30, we'll be rolling by you around 3. I figure about an hour and a half+ from Scott's to about half-way through CT with no traffic.
