Who from New England is going to Fest and how are you getting there?

So far it looks like I will be going solo in my GTI since my GF can't get the time off.

Anyone want to convoy or ride with?

I'm going (yes, again) but I'll be taking a week to get there due to other reasons.

I'm going to the Fest in my 2010 JSW. My g/f is riding with me.

I will be keeping an ear on the GMRS/FRS channels along the way. I'll be monitoring 462.625MHz w/PL141.3Hz. That is channel 18, tone/code #22 in the Motorola TalkAbout bubblepack radios. So if you have one of these cheap little radios, you can give me a shout there if we happen to pass by each other.

We are, duh. May leave Thursday afternoon to get there for the meet and greet on Friday. Otherwise it's a very early start on Friday.

I'm hoping to depart from very western (North Adams) Mass at 11am on Friday. 3pm at the latest.

Google maps tells me 12:23. Sounds like a bet to me.

Registered!

Now I am just trying to figure out when I am leaving, trying to convince my boss to give me more time off is easier said than done though. The trip to Germany was not a scheduled vaca...

I'm registered now, and thinking of leaving Thursday morning, getting a hotel Thursday night. Anyone interested in sharing a room? This will put us in Michigan, rested, on Friday afternoon.

Hopefully my wheels will be here by at least Thursday afternoon, planning on leaving in the wee hours of Friday morning. Anyone know if they are leaving the area around then?

Anyone know of a good place to fill up on Bio diesel on the way to Ypsilanti? Or should I bring a 5 gal can of B99 to do my own splash blend??

So are Corey and I, but we're planning on going through Canada: I got badly tied up in traffic on I271 going around Cleveland last time I drove that way on a Friday afternoon.
