Just wondering who from the DC area has plans to go to N12 this year. I am leaving on that Friday morning (fairly early) to go there so I can actually set up my campsite before dark. It's a nine hour drive from DC.
My girlfriend and I will be going up. We'll meet up with you in the morning if you want. I think you have to come my way to go up there anyways. One of the guys that lives in black_krix lives in sw va and he made it up in about 8 hours. I'm at least an hour and a half above him so I'm banking off around 7 hours for me.....
That sounds good. I am still waiting to hear from lumpy53, if he's coming or not...he hasn't made any definite plans yet. Yeah...my time estimate comes from my experience in 2004. I left at like 4pm that Friday and got stuck in rush hour traffic all the way almost to Maryland. This time around...my hopes are to leave early that Friday morning and get to the place sometime in the afternoon with enough time to set up my tent with daylight (mistake made last time around). E-mail me at [email protected] and we'll discuss this more that way.
Anyone else coming through the area, or leaving from the mid-Atlantic area heading to N12?
I'm about 50/50 for this year. I have made it that last 2 years, but don't know if I trust my car to make it. Not to mentioned i'll be starting at my job full-time in early June, so I don't know if I could get Friday off.
In any case, I would probably be leaving early Friday morning, I live right off I-83, about 25 mins north of baltimore. I don't know if you all plan to go up 95 to 695 to 83, or up 270 to 81, but if I do go, I am sure I could meet up. I can't say either way right, but i'll know my situation much better the closer it gets. later,
yeah, I figured you would go up 81. I guess you would take that to around harrisburg, then north through williamsport. I'd probably meet up in harrisburg somewhere, i'm only 50mins/1hr directly south. Either way, we'll figure it out. later,
JD, no need to do the hotel. We stay at an enormous campground and just camp out for a few nights. My GF and I are going to buy a 75-100 dollar tent and some stuff for it for the couple nights. Either way I'm getting a tent and stuff for less than what I'd pay for hotel fees. 90% of everyone camps. You thinking of going up? I know of a few guys around here that may be going up with me...
dont count your time based on my experiance. On a road trip I only stop to get gas and hit the restrooms. I take food with me and eat on the way. I usualy do 10mph over unless im being passed by everyone then I pick up the pace and flow with traffic. I leave early too and didnt get stuck in traffic anywhere.
Things arent looking good for me this year. Time is ticking away, my car runs but not right. 4k rpm idle, no thanks :lol: It needs an alignment, wiring and interior finished up etc...and at the moment I dont want to work on any of it.
july 8-9 sat and sunday. im leaving on the 7th and staying over until monday morning and driving home sometime around noon on monday. if i leave sooner then i will be leaving sunday around noon
i wanna check out the falls and stuff in the area with my gf at the same time and i think big josh is bringing his girl too. kinda like a mini vacation i guess. nice and cheap so it works out for me =)
How close will you guys be coming to the albany area in NY. I figure i really do have to make it this year seeing as how it will prob. be the last chance I have to go for a long while and going up in a convoy would be much more fun.
