LOG35 Convoys, East Coast and West Coast

Hi all,

I have organized (with help!) two convoys. One coming from the east coast and one coming from primarily central and socal. We did this for LOG in Las Vegas a few years ago and it was well received and proclaimed the best roadtrip ever by many of the participants.

The convoys are a bit free form as far as people joining us where ever it makes sense. We already have people that will join us at various points.

East Coast
Some people are starting in the Virginia region. We will start in Atlanta GA. Meet in Chattanooga. Rock City. Barber Museum in Birmingham. Muscle Shoals. Tupelo MS and birthplace of Elvis. Texarkana. Paris Texas. Amarillo. Cadillac Ranch. Taos New Mexico. Meet up with west coast. Drive back roads to LOG.

Leaving LOG. Track day. Hutchinson Kansas. Salt mines and space center. BOE in Kansas City. Route 66 in Baxter OK and Carthage MO. Back roads of Missouri. Bowling Green Kentucky and Corvette Museum. Labs at Oak Ridge in Tenn. Tail of the Dragon. Home.

SoCal and Cental Cal. Back roads through the deserts to Phoenix. Back roads through to New Mexico. Meet up with east coast in Taos.

Leaving. Back roads to Moab Utah. Las Vegas. Home.

LOG is coming up quick. Let me know if you want to join our group. Thanks!

I noticed someone provided a handy dandy map of the route they are planning to take from the East Coast. You might want to provide something like that for the Visually-dependent learners.

How many people are meeting up in Texarkana? I can't make LOG but might meet a few of you there. It is only 45 minutes away from where I live. Let me know.

The west coast convoy started today. The Zenos is leaving Napa this morning and heading to San Diego.



The plan is for the Zenos to drive with at least two other Lotus cars from California thru the desert to Sedona Arizona, then to various points such as Winslow AZ, Petrified Forest and stopping in Albuquerque. Meeting up with the east coast convoy in Taos New Mexico Friday then north to Colorado Springs.

Anyone else heading to LOG from SoCal or Arizona?
