Hey everyone,

Who is planning on attending the 5th, when will you be leaving, and from where? I should be heading out of Houston Tuesday morning, anyone else?

I'm leaving Tuesday morning also. I don't know if I should drive all the way to TN, or stop somewhere for the night.

I'm leaving Tuesday but it's only a couple of hours from my house! Sorry I can't hook up with you folks to caravan in.

I'll be driving it straight, but I have a co-pilot in case one of us gets tired. Are you riding solo Firme? What is the best route to take anyhow? I think it can be done in one day no problem, just need to get an early start. I already have reservations at the hotel in TN for tuesday night, so I want to make it there tuesday.

We're also leaving Houston on Tuesday. Plan to hit the road early and stop in Birmingham, Al - then on to Pigeon Forge the next morning. (We're trailering the car so it will be a little slower for us)

Tuesday:
59 North to Shreveport
I-20 to Birmingham
10 - 12 hr drive.


Wednesday:
Leave Bham early
59 North into Chattanooga,Tenn.
79 North to Knoxville, Tenn.
Pigeon Forge is just the other side of Knoxville
4 - 5 hr drive.

Let us know if you guys want to hook up somewhere on the road.

Jim & Jackie Boden

Take her to a Ford dealer and let her test drive an Excursion, that is all it will take :D
