I hope to be at 1:24-1:28 below.

Should be pretty easy to do since that jetta won't be there this time. They have a wedding to attend this year. Yea I know...their priorities are all screwed up.

I'd like to get out around 4 or 5 but I'm guessing some people are going to have trouble getting to Summit at six. I think we left Jackson last year closer to eight or nine.

I agree, and also understand work and traffic will be a factor for many. Yeah that sounds about right, anything better than that will be a plus!

We are planning on taking Thursday off, so we should be able to meet up anytime. bounce

Looking forward to catching up with you guys! What are your plans this coming weekend by the way? Assuming you are going to the wedding? Jamie and I are heading down Friday night.

Got some stuff happening, so we aren't going to make it. Dan and Julie were at the house this weekend for a get together for Raymond's b-day. They understand but we still hate to miss it.

Bryce. You still have the banner? We need to bring that. If you don't have room I'll be happy to haul it.

So we're going to finalize the time to be @ Summit for 6PM on Thursday. This is the roll out time so show up with a full tank of gas and a full belly because we're going to try to drive straight through with minimal stops.

It's looking like we're going to have somwhere in the range of 15 cars rolling out of Summit on Thursday. So I decided to pull something from last last years Bulli thread...

"On another note...I talked about this earlier to Ben and put something like this on the Bulli thread last year. Let me start by saying that I anticipate no problems with any ones cars but the fact remains that most of us are driving machines that are 40+ years old and s@#t happens. So in an effort to keep the convoy rolling I recommend that we each pair off with someone else to be a wingman. Your job as a wingman is to help the person you're hooked up with in the unlikely event of mechanical failure. The reason for this is to keep the overall group safe and have someone you know will help if you have a problem that requires an extra set of hands/feet/wrenches/wheels or whatever. What often times happens in a convoy situation is one person will break down and six people stop to help. While this is cool, it can be dangerous to the group. Your buddy is there to be your backup and let the convoy roll on (and stop at in a safer area if desired) while you sort out any issues. This adds to the comfort level of the trip and prevents everyone from being stopped by a single break down.

Now in being a good wingman, you should be prepared with a minimum set of equipment for a longer road trip like this. My minimum list always includes...

Tools: Anything that I normally use for general maintenance on my VW.
Gen. Belt: Can't live without it.
Zip ties: The new duct tape.
Oil: At least one quart.
Fuses: Better/safer than pennies.
Dash (peanut) bulbs: You car won't charge without a functioning gen bulb.
Cables: One clutch and one accel.
Spark plugs: Every time I change my plugs, I rotate the old ones into my kit.
Gaskets: I keep a complete set of engine gaskets in the car.
Wire: I added this to my kit along with connectors after my recent trip to Starbucks.
Points and condenser: Not normally in my stock but I plan to add it before I roll this time.
Repair Manual: I have the shop manual and idiot book in my bus at all times.
Paper towels: Stuff can get messy.
Flash light: With extra batteries.

I'm sure there are a few things I forgot, but that pretty much covers it."

Get 'em ready we're three weeks out!

Then wake up and head to Bradenton Fl for Rare and Unique/Kips Party on the 6th.
Then Bulli on the 7th
Then Bugjam on the 8th.

Dave and Sandra's Place
6338 Quarterman Road
Hahira, GA 31632

It is about 7 miles East of I-75 off of Exit 29. Google maps does a good job of pinpointing our place.

Dave and Sandra's Place <----That's a link to the map!! Cool
