Ok, here is the Official routes and times for the Caravan to the 2013 29th Annual Trans Am Nationals.  In previous year's there was a "Pre-Caravan Cook-Out" that was held at my house (maybe) that Thursday night prior to the trip down on Friday.  I know alot of people who came in from out of state in the previous year's will not be coming out this year.  So I leave it open to anyone who wants to possibly do a cook-out to let me know.


The Caravan will leave from Mentor OH via I-90 and Rt. 306 that Friday morning at 8:30am.  We will meet at the Giles Marathon Gas Station
there next to Lakeland Community College before 9:30am so that you may have a chance to fuel up and gather any needed items for the trip.  If you wish to meet with the caravan at this point, please contact Lomileta.  Last year we had about 8 cars at this point.  The caravan will leave promptly at 8:30am.  We will be taking I-90 East and join up with I-271 South.  I-271 South will Join/End at I-71 South.  We will take I-71 South pass by the Pilot Travel Center
or Rt. 83 in Lodi Exit 204 at about 10:30 or 10:45 am.  First Leg is about 68 miles.  We will be meeting up with a group of cars coming from the East like Akron, Canton, and any other points from the East.  If you wish to join the Caravan at this point Please contact myself.  Last year, we had about 12 cars join us here. The people from the First stop will be passing by here and not stopping. If you are meeting at the second stop, please be there before the 10:30 in order to meet with the first leg of the Caravan. We will be in contact with someone in charge there and let them know when we are close so that this second stop will pull out right with us in stride to keep the caravan going.


The second group will depart the Lodi exit at approx. 10:45am and head back down I-71 and join with the first group.  We will then take Rt 30 West and join up with I-75 going South.  There is a Speedway Gas Station
there at the exit around Lima, OH off Rt30/Rt 696 and we should arrive there about 12:45 am and leaving at 1:00 pm.  Here we will meet the cars coming down from the North from Michigan and other areas.  Second Leg is about 114 Miles. Again if you want to meet up with the caravan at this point, please contact myself.  We should have about 18 cars join up with us here for a total of about 30+ cars, possibly more.


We will depart from Rt 30 and I-75 about 1:00pm or so and head to the Dayton Marriott and the Trans Am Nationals.  Third leg is about 87 Miles.  We will arrive here at approx 2:00-2:30pm.

Any questions, please contact me.  I will be contacting some members for assistance at the different locations so the contact people might change for those stops, but I will let everyone know. If anyone wants to take charge of the second or third stops, please let me know.  The total distance for this route is 260 Miles.  We have a great time every year with all of these cars.  We will have CB's and cell phones of course to keep everyone together and have a blast. We will get together a cell phone list of anyone who wants to list their phone number and will be given to the people on the Caravan that day. It is also fun listening to the truckers talk about the cars as they roll down the highway.  I hope to have a great time at the Nationals and also a great time getting there.  So, if you are interested in joining this Caravan, let me know by posting here or sending me a PM.
