RGB caravan to The Vintage 2019

Hello RGB'ers and distinguished guests:

 

It's May and that can only mean one thing - everyone frantically tearing their cars apart and rebuilding them for the Vintage. While you're furiously swinging wrenches I've got a caravan route planned so you don't have to.  

 

The plan: We need to depart no later than Noon on Thursday 5/16. I plan on arriving at about 11 to grab a quick early lunch and gas up ahead of time.  The exit will have a Cracker Barrel, Waffle House, & McDonalds for your dining pleasure.This will be best/only lunch stop so best to plan to arrive with plenty of time before noon. Upon arrival, there is a large parking lot between the McDonalds and Gas station, so lets plan to meet there.

Again, I'd recommend planning to arrive by 11am, gas up upon arrival, then park in the big lot and meet up with everyone else for food etc.

 

Where to Meet: We will meet near Lexington, KY, specifically exit 115 KY 922 (Newtown Pike) on I-64 / I-75. 115 is the first exit after 64&75 merge together, but for those of you with GPS you can plug in the McDonald's address to find us -> 1946 Stanton Way, Lexington, KY 40511. Take a left off the exit and you'll see the restaurants on the right side of the street. Also, If anyone is coming from 'points beyond' and leaving earlier in the week & would like to join the caravan, there are several good hotel options off this exit.

 

The Route: >>>>>> https://goo.gl/maps/chXEmer456sNvywj6 <<<<<<

We will take I-75 South to Corbin, then US-25E, then I-40 E to Asheville. It's the same route we took last year and was a really nice, easy, scenic drive. The one major change from previous years is that we are eliminating the Corbin stop. Hopefully pressing on and only stopping once will allow us to beat some of the Asheville rush hour traffic.

 

What to do next:

1) Comment below if you're planning on caravaning with us, then shoot me a PM with what car you'll be driving (color/model/etc) and your best contact number.

         **I will compile a driver contact list and distribute to everyone when we meet in Lexington**

2) Get excited, tell your friends, finish building your car.

3) Pack walkie talkies if you have them - really useful during the caravan & on site on Saturday - there is no cell service.

 

The journey to vintage is half the fun, and last year's caravan was an absolute blast. You do not want to miss out this year.  Feel free to PM/Call/Smoke signal me with any questions or concerns.

Nice. But we can’t leave until after Karie has her finale show at uptown arts to end the school year, at 5 on Thursday. Have fun guys!  Be safe. See you Friday morning.

For folks coming from Dayton and points north and northeast.  We can meet at the KY welcome station/rest stop on I-75/71 just south of Cincinnati and before the two interstates split (same place we met last year).  Be there at 9:30 and we'll have plenty of time to reach Lexington by 11 (it's only about 60 or so miles)

 

PM me if you want to join up so I'll know who to look for.

 

cheers

mike
