Who is already en route?

I am posting this from a truckstop in Osseo, WI, about 606 miles from the Fest.

I worked on a gentleman's car today that is slowly working his way up from Florida.
So one from Florida is closer than I am right now? Am I correct to presume this gentleman is in Kentucky?

Several of us will be in and around the hotel tonight (Thurs) to collaborate on last minute items and work through final printings. After work for me, I expect to be in the hotel around 7 and be around the Registration room for several hours still tonight. If anyone wants to poke their head in early and say hi or stuff bags, feel free ;)

Fest trip

I'm Here, yes!
Traffic was not too bad. Most Wisconsin troopers I have seen on 94 & 90 in a while now.
Chicago was a breeze during the Midnight hour.
Something was causing the radar go off frequently near Lafeyette. Never saw anything. Played team player and stayed with all my big diesel brothers.
Seen aftermath of a car fire near Cinci, but it was just a Toyota.
Darn GPS needs an update as hotel was not in it's database. So got off one exit too soon.
