Sorry for double post- can't just edit my own posts because they still don't appear on their own.

Obviously, If we're all gonna cruise together, It would be best to meet in a large parking lot as close to the highway as possible. Do we have a route planned?

I would suggest that we meet up at "Rest Stop 26" in Wisconsin right off of 41. The parking lot is just north of the Pleasant Prarie Premium Outlets in Wisconsin

Heading north from the city on I-94 (The Edens) through the North Shore would mean that there are no tolls at all once you are on that highway and all the way to Devil's lake. Its about a 2.5 hour drive from there, and of course no tolls, so it would be pretty easy to plan a stop for gas or to stretch legs (if necessary) on the way- somewhere just outside of Madison makes sense to me. The route I've got in mind shows no stop lights at all.

Here's the directions I'm thinking of, for those coming up through chicago or the north shore of chicago:

Is it the date or location? Not that it's going to change just for you. 😉

It's the location for us.

But I want you guys to try new spots! Eventually the kids will be old enough for roadtrips, and I'd love to branch out. I've only been talking about it for years.....

I think this goes without saying but we’re out for this meet. With a trip to Miami in April and a family trip to Yellowstone in May, neither of us can get the time off work for this meet. Maybe we can load up the puppers and make a fall meet though, as long as it doesn’t overlap with my Vegas trip. laugh.gif

When is your Vegas trip? Let's get dates, so we know what to avoid.

** Update **

Contacted the place that had cabins... AND THEY HAD SOME AVAILABLE. Would like to know for sure how many people would be interested in staying/ making it a long weekend (I plan on the 23 - 26 of April).

I might be out, Erin's got a thing and won't be home so I'm on dog-sitting duty. Not sure I can wrangle them both by myself in the Celica for a LONG ass day trip like that and getting a hotel with them overnight is probably a no-go with just me because they get antsy/barky at hotels.

I'm real close by so I won't be staying at the cabins but I'm down to hang out around there until whenever.

If there would be 3ish plus people to share/ split the cabin it would be worth it, otherwise a hotel would be cheaper.

Been heavy on board neglect here I apologize.
Jake and I are in.

I feel like dogs and children should not be deterring you core members from coming, FYI.
Even if you guys didn't want to trek all the way home in one day there's options other than the expense of the Dells toward Madison, and it's a really nice calm place unlike say, Chicago.
We'll probably make our own arrangements for staying if we choose not to drive home.

Words well spoken.




Sounds like I'll contact the cabin rental place and tell them it's a no go.

I did this a few years ago and it was the most fun I had in a while (I used to race go karts nationally). It was practice, one heat, and one big feature race. I wasn't used to the adrenaline and abuse in the karts, so I almost threw up that evening when my body started catching up. haha!

https://sugarriverraceway.com/

It included EVERYTHING. I had my own suit and gear, but they have everything there that you'd need. It was only like $80 for the day. SOOOO much more than you get with any indoor place and it was a complete blast. There was probably close to 20 people racing. I think I may do this again this year for my birthday regardless.

Slight bit off topic:

I'm possibly buying a 6gc tomorrow that came up semi local.

its gonna be a little rough, for sure, not expecting much more than a mobile storage unit and A-B

https://www.facebook.com/marketplace/item/5...essenger_banner

The good:

1994 Celica GT Liftback
White
5MT
body is all one color, doesn't look rotted out or anything of that nature
New radiator
Recent "minor tune up" (Oil change, spark plugs, maybe some other stuff)

The bad:

No heat, claims it needs a thermostat installed, owner is including part in sale. I don't care about it not having heat, we're almost out of winter here.
Car needs a windsheild as the current has spider cracks on the passenger side. Shouldn't be that hard to get, safelite lists it at ~$200 with R&R.
Some rust near door jam on bottom of driver rocker
Car is 1000 obo. trying to get it for no more than 750.

That's like $500 car definitely not $1000
