Hey pete.

Take the route that it shows you, but watch out, there will be a spot that will get you lost as it is not on the maps yet. You will come down a hill with lots of twists in it and merge on to a NEW highway that it not on the Garmin. Take it to the next exit and get off. the garmin will scream recalculating, but just get off and go left to the next county road. The garmin will pick you up again and get you back to the proper route...

Happened to me and two others that came in from Toronto last night.

My Garmin, Google, Mapquest shows that same rural route. Need options. Which way should i go?

Would it make sense to go Toronto - Buffalo- Erie - Pittsburgh - Washington? All interstates......... hmmmm.............


later,
Pete

Just got in at 11:55am. Left at 3pm. 8.5hrs seat time driving on my MFA. 1/2 hour for a rest stop and Duty Free shop visit.

Which road with twists i should be on the lookout for? Didn't have a problem. Most of those roads were lots of fun. Saw 2 troppers with people already pulled over. I got pretty lucky. 'Cause on those twisties in the valley, rolling at double the speed limit, the Golf was on rails.

Later,
Pete

Just arrived home too. We got several amount of rain on our way back.
The organisers even had planned the weather and delayed the rain for the weekend.

It has been an awesome fest, like all I've participated in.

Thumbs up to all the people who participated in making this event a success.

I just got home from the hotel. Everything went like clockwork, and the hotel thanked us for an awesome weekend. They were thrilled with everything, and invited us back again.

As for I-95... it's never going to be finished. It's a continuous work in progress... it just keeps getting bigger and bigger.
