I am starting this thread for any of you southern boys and girls heading to C3. I plan on leaving Richmond on Thursday June 11th at 5am. I have not decided my route yet and am hoping to have Nipplesurfer riding along. Anyone interested in a great ride please chime in.

dub, looking at a map it appears to me you will be going through Louisville on I-64. If you don't already know there are 2 new bridges under construction here plus they are re-aligning some interstates and other roads. Getting through Louisville during rush hour can sometimes only be described as a goatfu(k. Most of the changes are to I-65 but a lot of I-65 exits are closed, some permanently some not, and a lot of I-65 is down to reduced lanes and some detours on I-65 route vehicles onto parts of I-64. Be sure and check traffic conditions before coming through.

cloondog is coming from NY and we will meet up at a gas/convenience store here about 6:30 Thursday morning to ride to ES together but we will be out of Louisville before the morning snarl.

That route looks like a good excuse to leave a day earlier, and take 2 lane roads. :D

The southern route is what I had looked at for me. When are you anticipating hitting Knoxville? Are you riding it all in one day or stopping Thursday night somewhere?

Depending on where you stop Thursday night, I may have to adjust my route and meet up with y'all for Friday.

Jax. I'm planning on meeting them somewhere as well to make the ride into ES. How are you gonna be coming through Ga? If you come I 95 to I 16, you will have to come right by me.

Which way you going Don? When you leaving and where ypu meeting Mike?

June 2nd, we leave for Michigan, to hook up with Gravs and Sue, then to Sturgis to meet ORD, then to Colorado to meet CaliBob, then we may meander our way down to Oklahoma City, possibly, then to Ft.Smith, hook up with the Texans and Okies, THEN we'll head for ES. :D :cool
