Send me information that you get. Yes there is a committee... and somehow I am on it.

The major hurdle is location as it does start to become a long haul for a lot of people. I am worried with Ohio being this year MKE might need to be in 2 years to keep it spread out... granted I am fully up for the challenge of planning the event and have even begun track discussions just to have finite details in the event it proves to be a viable location.

It will be added to THE list.

It would be a longer drive for >90% of attendees, but doesn't completely rule it out.

My girlfriend said the same thing. She was at last years (although the guys I caravan'd up with are the only ones that really believe me since she was a hermit and stayed in the hotel room almost the ENTIRE time)

This year, she missed me, I missed her. She does not like cars as much as I but she fully supports my filthy habit and bless her for that.

When Rob got teared up talking about his wife, I did the same thinking about my woman in my life. Never once has she bitched about my habit and I.

Better than smoking crack, that is how I feel!

Thanks. I also sent Rob a PM so he has some basics. Once I have finite information I will present it to you guys in a logical format.

Right on.

Let's see about the last three (3) Conventions in a row....

5-6 hours was one-quarter (1/4) of my 2,200 mile round-trip to Ohio. 1,102 miles from Robs door to mine. LOL.

Connecticut was going to be 1,500 miles one way. I made it a quarter way driving, hauling the Classic, threw up, slept overnight, drove home. Then flew to that hoe-down.

Savanah was 968 miles, 1,938 miles round-trip. Over 15 hours, one way. I picked up my Classic from the Restoration that morning, packed, and took off solo for a...ahem...short 2,000+ mile shake-down run and track session.

Without any questions nor reservation, worth every single mile, hour, and dollar spent.

5-6 hours?!? Pfffffffff......that ain't no mountain for a climber.

We want to open up what we experience to as many people as possible, so we need to cap at $200 max and the closer to $150 we can get the better.

I "liked" Kyles post (still do), but understand your point as well. The more guys that experience the road course, the better.

One trip to Nelson Ledges and I think we got Mr. Hardcore Quarter-Mile Former-Street-Racer Manny pondering going around curves instead of only seeing just how fast he can go in a straight line. He might have to upgrade his brakes and suspension as he builds his current turbo-car. Then he could effectively do both.

Keep in mind, in the northeast you can drive 5-6 hours and cross like 15 states. 5-6 hours is about how long it takes to get to the end of your driveway if you live in TX.

He lives in LA. Not TX.
