Default On my way to Lexington!

Packed and ready to leave for Lexington. About a 9 hour ride. It looks like there may be some rain today in western Maryland and West Virginia.

I'll see you all at the Fest. I will be the somewhat nerdy, slightly overweight guy driving a diesel VW. You can't miss me.

As soon as I finish this virtual server conversion I will be on my way also, 12 hours for me, so a late night arrival I am sure.

I left home last Saturday and made the (almost) 2,000 mile drive to Cincinnati. I have been visiting with family this week. We will be driving to Lexington tomorrow afternoon. See y'all there (I'm practicing my Kentucky accent).

Have Fun!

Don

Got in at 4am, but not the last to check in, waiting for someone from Ontario, maybe above. Nice to see the TDI's in the parking lot.

Just got up... planning on heading out after some quick breakfast.

BlueCTTDI, on the other hand, STILL hasn't left Connecticut. So much for our caravan plans.
