Since the other regions have their threads going I thought I would start one for us. Yes, I WILL BE GOING! If anyone has ideas for a caravan down, hotel groups, group events or anything else. Please post. I will detail my plans (if you care) as soon as more details come out (list of events, hotel information, etc.).

I'll be going and driving my car there. Would be interested in a caravan, or meeting up with a passing caravan (the NY folks should be coming down 81 or 95).

Agreed. Once we get something established here we can coordinate with the other regions. I plan to drive as well. Should be fun seeing 50+ vipers rolling down the road.

I am 80% sure I'll be attending...if I hit the lottery between now and then, all the fee's are on me!

If not, I'm terribly sorry, but you're on your own...

There are a few of us from Delaware going. Caravaning together is a blast. The public rarely sees a viper but when they see several in a row cruising together, what a spectacle. I think my wife is possibly as excited about going as I am. We both enjoyed Texas and Nashville. We still have many of the collectibles and center pieces in our display cases.

Sounds good. We'll probably have a few stops along the I-95 corridor. By the time you guys get down this way I expect to see at least 50 Vipers!

Agreed! East coast is where it's at this year. And the VA/MD region is sitting right in the middle of everything. It's going to be a good year!

VOI begins on Thursday evening, September 27th. The last Driver's meeting Q&A session (which we need to attend) is at 4pm. There really isn't anything on the schedule before that other than an earlier Q&A meeting. (see http://www.voi12.com/events.html) I plan to depart Northern VA early on Thursday morning so I have time check into my hotel and the event prior to the first driver's meeting / Q&A session.

I'll be departing Burger King on Rt. 3 in Fredericksburg (map) at 8:00am with a single stop for Gas / Lunch about noon (Burlington NC?). I expect to arrive in Concord NC around 2:00pm.

ROUTE MAP

If you want to join me leave a message here, shoot me a PM, or call/txt seven-zero-three 850 seven 847

Would you like me to forward on to our mailing list? Unfortunately, I need to leave the day before to be there for the Presidents meeting.

Several Vipers from central NC will be traveling along I85, and here's the current plan for Thurs 9/27:

10am: Meet at I40 Exit 154 in Mebane NC (the Tanger Outlets exit) at the Sheetz (1237 Mebane Oaks Road, Mebane, NC)
10:15am: Depart Sheetz
11:45am: Arrive at I85 Exit 76 in Salisbury NC at the ******* Barrel for lunch (1070 Freeland Dr, Salisbury, NC)
1:15pm: Depart ******* Barrel for VOI
2pm: Arrive at VOI site (plenty of time for hotel check-in, registration, attending the afternoon driving information session, etc.)

It would be very cool if y'all can meet up with us..

I plan to hook up with you guys at the Sheetz. Anyone coming down the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel from Deleware and the Eastern Shore who will be traveling 13 to 64 to 58 to 85 South... let me know and we can meet up as you pass through Norfolk/Va Beach. I'll be leaving the Hampton Roads area around 6AM to meet up with the Carolina club by 10AM.

I plan on traveling down the Bridge Tunnel on Wed morning.
Havent put much thought into planning as of yet, just didn't
want to start off the event exhausted. Might wait until later
to avoid traffic though...

Ok, so I'm in and plan to go down on Thursday morning. I will be trailering my Viper and bringing some tools just incase anything happens. I will have tire plugs, an air pump, oil, coolant and any extras anyone can suggest or maybe would like me to transport.

My last track event my brakes went out. So, extra pads and tools to change them may be my key items. But I'm traveling for two and space will be limited. To bring the spare or not to bring the spare? That is the question. I'm picking up two racing helmets this week over at OG racing probably. Anyone wanting information let me know.

I will be leaving Wednesday evening after work, so I will likely miss many of the caravans. I will keep my eyes open though and hook up with anyone I find. See you guys there!

Since a third Petty session has been added (4 pm is back on!) we're now going back to the original plan of meeting at the Sheetz gas station in Mebane at 10 a.m. Thursday morning. See post #22 above for the details.
