The plan is we will be making a trip but with out the bus. Cheaper to take the train.. We will be sure to let you all know when we will be coming.

We actually got it home a month ago...:thumbsup::thumbsup:

And it looks gorgeous!!

But with Diesel the way it is and winter weather to unpredictable we will opt the train again. As Tim said, it was MUCH cheaper. even with a hotel/rental car.

We have plans for the Gate either Feb 4, or Mar 3. Still not 100% on that and still no idea how many drivers will be coming with us?
But as in the past... we plan on being there!!

1 thing.... I need to ask, we have 3 guaranteed young guns drivers that want to go. Will there be a "youth" class again?

Glad to see you guys still "trade'n paint" with the BRP's! Will the "Bus" be making any Ohio trips this year?
We used almost 2 tanks to get out last time we came(approx. 300 gal.round trip), this year @ $4.05 a gal. we are talking $1,215.00 just in fuel. The costs just wont fly with the guy's. And I can't blame them when we did it last year for $120- round trip $70- lodging & $27- rental car. And no body had to drive!!(ME)
Plus we had a real good time on the train!!:cool:
