Traveling to PUB From the East

All I know for sure at this point in time is that I will be traveling West to PUB from the East :)

If that be in my Pagoda or my C63 AMG I purchased a few weeks ago is up in the air at this point in time (much depends on the weather and if the work I planned for my Pagoda is done in time).

Also

I properly will make my way there by myself since there is very little interest in a caravan from this part of the country. To get it organized might turn out to be a headache.

I will be driving my California Coupe from Jacksonville, FL.  I've got a business meeting along the way but expect to be in Blacklick Friday morning, 11 Sept.

Joe,

Would not dream of missing this event.  Please add me to the list.  Also, I will speak for Chuck Taylor as he indicated he also plans to attend and we would like to be part of a caravan from Northern Virginia.

Thanks again for hosting and I look forward to spending time with you, Mary and the rest of the Group in September.

All the best,

Tom

My flight arrives late Friday night.  I hope to find at least a small congregation of members still in the parking lot checking out the cars.

Thanks so much Joe.  I have rented a car this time around.  Last time Walter Klatt took me to the airport and lost out on an important part of your presentation.

Looking forward to seeing old friends and meeting new ones.

Panzer is leaving earlier in the week in order to visit friends/family on his way to PUB.
To meet with the Chicago guys is certainly an option, need to contact them.
BTW talking to Gernold, he says he is planning to be there as well.

Hey Dan, I assume you are crossing at the Blue Water bridge so what time are you leaving?

To the folks who know people who say they are coming, please get them to register soon, so I can make sure we have enough tables, chairs, etc. Just email them the post with the registration form.  I need a few weeks to finalize, especially the food part.  We'll be figuring that out in the next week.

Thanks,

If anyone departs and drives through Chicago on Monday 14th, I'll happily jump in as a co-driver  :D instead of crowding on an airplane  :-\. I have a departure from ORD on Monday at 10 pm.
