I'll be getting on I70 East at mile marker # 208 in Ohio. And 4C we would like to meet up with you on the Pa. turnpike at the same place as last year, can you give a "window" time frame?  :bananasmi  :bananasmi  :bananasmi  :bananasmi

That exit/on ramp is near the W.Wv border, the 208 of course would equate to 208 mile east of the Indianna border, if you want and give us a time slot we will atempt to meet you there. Send me a pm or e-mail,....we'll do it !

The trip takes about 5 hours for us, counting stops,  and we meet 4C and the north west gang at the Sumerset oasis,  on the Pa. turnpike so we will need to wait to see his projected arrival time at that point, but your time dosen't sound too far off, maybe a little adjustment here and there and it will all work out.  :cheers:

that was estimated leaving Terra Haute at 8 am, only guessing exact distance and time.

Time coordination can be tricky, so we usually allow for a 1/2 to even an hour window, besides, that gives some time for a leg strecher for old tired joints  :roflsmiley: To give you another guestamate factor, we need about 5 hours to get to Indy, so depending on your distace to the east side of Indy this will give you and idea to the Ohio (I 70 / mile marker 208) location.

It is 1 hour from Indy from Terra Haute, I figure about 1-2pm est is about right then

I can probably hit that target as well. I am still working out my morning schedule but I'm only 3.5 hours away(?) from that spot.

that is cool Troy.  maybe with some luck we can work all of this out.

 :bananasmi It will work out guys, we've had these "caravans" now for 4 years and I don't think anyone has been left behind yet, 4C's first year the poor guy waited and waited and waited, but there he was........sitting outside his car in a lawn chair patiently waiting, he was either working with a laptop or watching TV  :roflsmiley: As soon as he post his ETA at the Sumerset turnpike plazza we can plan accordingly. "Are we leavin yet", d@mn the next couple weeks will probably go by soooooooooo sloooooooow  :crazy:  :jumping:  :cooldancing:  :woohoo:  :clapping:  :wave:

I have checked my schedule and plan to arrive at the sumerset oasis between 2-2:30 EST!  If you want me to check distance and time for anyone else, I have a mapping program that will do it!  Just tell me where you are leaving from and I'll tell you how far and long it will take you!  (providing no consruction delays)  Coming up fast!   :bananasmi

IF I go I will probably just go Saturday and come back the same day. How many cars are physically driving to Carlisle on Thursday? I ask because I have a few bugs to work out on my dad's car and I wouldnt mind going for a drive with everyone on the forum for an hour or so to make sure everything is fine. It would be a quick drive, I would then drive back home, and meet everyone at Carlisle (if I am able to make it on Saturday). Well with that said, around what time will the caravan be going between exits 135 and 142 on the turnpike?? because there is a real nice service plaza at 139.5 that I could meet everyone at.....

The west caravan group is leaving for Carlisle on Thursday morning, a couple are meeting in eastern Ohio around noon (I70 - exit 208) then the next meeting spot will be with 4C at the Summerset plazza on the Pa turnpike around 3 in the afternoon.

4C will be coming down from Mi and will travel the Ohio turnpike, but do not know his time for the exit's you mention.

The I70 exit is a 45 minute drive for me, so I probably wont meet you guys there. I doubt I will have the bugs worked out on my dad's car anyhow, so it isnt a big deal....theres always next year. I am still trying to make the show on saturday and will probably take my Concorde or my Mom's Crossfire. Carlisle should have an awesome turnout, in fact today on the way back home I saw a 70 Challenger R/T being trailored towards Pennsylvania
