    Finally Registered for the Tour

    OK everyone,
    I guess I will start this and I finally got registered for the Long Haul of the power tour, so lets get every one to start registering.

    All of the Gold packages are sold out, so I will just be another peasant along for the ride like everyone else. Good news is registration is only $136.xx total after taxes so more money for other stuff.

    Would like to get a running list of those going and where you are coming from and whether you are a long hauler or stopping for a few locations. Will try and keep something on top of this post so everyone can see it.

    Once you get registered look at the first post and post up with your info and I will add it to the running list.

    Smitty

    No stops or venues have been announced, but at least people now have the dates and can request vacation time.

    This year I am planning on doing the entire tour with my dad who lives in FL and is 77, so you never know how many more times I will get this chance. He is the one that is largely responsible for me getting involved with cars to begin with, so I thought this would be a great trip for him as well.

    Hopefully some more SCCOA/TCCOA/TBU etc; folks can join in.

    No other folks trying to go? I know it is in June, but if you are thinking about going get those hotels reserved ASAP or you might be a long way from the venues!

    Even if you might show up to only 1 or 2 locations, post up so I can add it to the first thread and get a count of possible attendees.

    Chris V is going - as we're splitting a room the entire trip, just hasn't updated things.

    I sure hope to go.

    Not sure what I'll be driving but I'm hoping to do the Long Haul again.

    So how is everyone doing? Still good to go?

    Driller, any luck in making plans?

    Ira, did you get a heat shield for your starter yet?

    I'm good to go here.

    Tim and change?

    What time is everyone getting to Bowling Green? I am leaving my house around 3:30-4:00 on Friday Evening and should get to Bowling Green in time to pick up my packet at the registration site by 6:00, which is not at Beech Bend Raceway.

    In the next few days I will PM everyone my cell # in case anyone needs it.

    Everything is still good here for the long haul.

    As for arrival time - plan to leave Roanoke Friday after work staying in the Knoxville area with either family or a hotel - haven't fully pinned that down as of yet. Arrival Saturday morning at the HRPT check in.

    I had plans all in place but something came up I had to cancel them all.

    I really hope you guys enjoy it as much as I know I'll miss it.

    Hopefully, next year will make up for it.

    Chris and I should be rolling into Knoxville Friday night around 10-11p, just finalized those plans last night with my Aunt. I'd imagine we will get to Bowling Green around 10-11a Saturday, unless we're supposed to be there earlier.

    Final tweaks are being made to my car. This weekend it fought taking a new tune and once warmed up had a vac leak that we were unable to locate. Hopefully it will be fully road worthy by midweek. No better way to test it for the first time than on a week long road trip...right?
