OTD I IN/OH/MI/KY OFFICIAL Dragon Caravan Down I-75 Info Thread

Not sure how everyone from OH, MI, IN, KY, etc. plans on getting to the motel(s) but I'm sure some will be heading down I-75. The more cars the merrier - I'd suggested earlier a meet-up at the mall in Florence, KY, time TBD. Then straight down I-75 to Knoxville.

If you're interested, please post for a head count - thanks!

Then straight down I-75 through Atlanta; depending on timing, we could meet up with the Florida/Georgia bunch in Marietta around 3 pm and then all head south from there.

John,
If I were you I would not come all the way to Atlanta,
You should head east from Chattanooga instead for a much shorter trip.

You are correct - let my enthusiasm overcome my geography. We'll probably head down to Knoxville and then through the Smokies to Robbinsville.

Probably around 8 or 9 am - but that's subject to everyone else chiming in. We're flexible.

For those of us not familiar with the 'when', 'when' is this event and how long will it last? I'm too tired and lazy to search through the other threads.

'jetfuel' was over a few weeks ago showing off his Brabus and was telling us that he and I think his wife are planning on going. We would love to go too but I don't think I have the vacation time left.

We have to plan my vacation time around "smart events" now.....
