    Miatapalooza 2017 Caravans

    Alright guys and gals. The event is coming up soon so I thought I should make up a thread so people can see who is driving what roads. That way people can possibly meet up on the way down. Give dates and routes that way maybe people can plan out the drive.

    You need meeting spots in each state that way the caravan just gets bigger and bigger by the time you link up to tampa.

    Raleigh, NC > Fayetteville, NC > Florence, SC > Savannah, GA > Jacksonville, FL > Orlando, FL > Lakeland, FL > Tampa Miatapalooza

    Anthony knows this.

    I want to do a "Route 66" style drive down. Leaving NC on Thursday and just bump into people on the way down on some fun roads. Stop over in Ga. that night and finsh the drive Friday. Want to be in a gathering near the meet. Just not wanting to pull over every time someone has to pee the whole trip down.

    4.3 diff and 170K on the clock. No stressing her for the meet. Back roads and two-lanes I like better.

    If you are going and leaving on Friday KFJ, holler. I can plan a route close and the you show me some fun southerly roads closer to the Shindig. No caravan. Just close Miati nuts in case one has troubles.

    Peace Gang! It is looming!

    We definitely can, only a 15 minute difference from going through Atlanta, would rather meet up with others obviously...

    I am trying to find a way to go. I am scheduled off on Thursday so I have the option of leaving then also.


    Now, I have also debated on which vehicle I would be driving as well. If I took the NB, that would limit purchases a lot. It sounds like there may quite a bit of goodies to purchase.
