If we drive up the night before, where would be a good/reasonable place to stay?

Thanks,

Hmmm. I know for sure my Elise won't be ready, but it might be fun to take my Mini - it is Brit-ish after all!

Thanks for setting this up. Really wanna get the Mac to these events, but gonna be in the teens Sat am. Might be another “trucks and jeeps” version.

But who knows, might have to slip and slide there anyway.

This drive is a month away... hopefully it's a little warmer next month! If not, i'll keep you advised on all the BCCWNC drives this year... I know I want to host another one in a few months

Tray,

We are not going to make it up. Too many things to get done around the house before Barber next weekend.

Take care,
Eldon
