Timmayfest Caravan (Thursday June 7th) Chicago to Columbus

Well it's that time again for Timmayfest in Columbus Ohio (go here if you have no clue what I'm talking about: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...ght=timmayfest

Now a group of us are all planning on traveling together on THURSDAY (June 7th) AT NOON down to Columbus to take part in the festivities. Since Eurocharged is sponsoring dyno tuning on Friday morning a bunch of us are going to go early this year. We will be leaving at 12pm SHARP from the Lincoln Oasis near South Holland just off of 294/80. Because we will be traveling east, we will be meeting on the east bound side. If you are coming in from the East heading West, you will need to pass the oasis and turn around on Halsted, which is the next exit to the West from the oasis.

This is an overview of the route (map is attached below):
http://g.co/maps/vtcvt


We have a few walkies for the ride down (and back) to help with orginazation of the caravan. If you are coming down and want one, I would highly recommend it. The motorola ones can be had for as little as $19.99 on Amazon.

We will be driving safely and at a MODERATE speed this year. Despite most of us have radars we don't want to push getting pulled over again like last year. It's important to behave in a mature manner while cruising on such a long drive. The walkies will help with any communication needed for stops or any alerting to cars in the back of the pack of what is happening up front (traffic, cops, emergency diarrhea attacks, ect..). Please remember to be respectful of those around you and don't do anything careless.

We will most likely make a stop outside of Indianapolis before we hit Ohio for a snack, gas tank fill up and to stretch our legs for about 15 min. Other than that we hope to grind out the trip as efficiently as we possibly can.

I will start a sign up sheet of everyone who will be leaving from the Oasis in Chicago on Thursday at Noon. I will also be sending out some PM's with any more info/details the night before we leave and cell phone numbers for myself and Jake from Eurocharged (loungn14).

If you plan on carvaning with us please sign up so we know who/how many to expect. If you live along the way sign up and let us know where you'll be getting into the caravan along the way.

where you guys coming from and are you taking 294 south? If so I will most likely be meeting a few people to pre caravan down at the Hinsdale Oasis about 11:30am. We can use that as a check point to make sure everyone gets included and is on time to the Lincoln Oasis. Traffic is not bad at all around 10-11am on the tollway heading south. If you're taking 94, different story.

Well.. depending on how close IND cuts it.. we'll be picking up my car and coming from IND LOL. Otherwise... we'll be coming from Elgin.

Either way we can come to hinsdale oasis.

Wife and I are coming from WI, north of Milwaukee actually. Going to try to leave by 9am. My cell is 262 68 963 84.

Assuming we should be gassed up and fed when we meet at noon?

The walkies, are the FRS radios correct? If so, I will bring some extras, mine are older but still work well.

Sounds good Bob, yeah they have a Mobil at the Oasis if you need to top off the tank.

The walkies we have are these: http://www.amazon.com/Motorola-FV300...7776264&sr=8-8

See you guys tomorrow.

I have Jakes number, so I will call if we are behind at all (not so you wait, but just to keep you updated).

It is a 3 hour drive from our house and we have to drop the kids off at school, so we will be cutting it close.

I'm assuming traffic wont be too bad if we stay on 294.

Should be fun!

What time and where....are we meeting in Indy?? Spoke with Seth about this earlier but I'm working all night and I get off at 6 am. Then I have to drive 1.5 hours to Fort Wayne and get my new plates and registration which arrived Monday. Depending on what time we are meeting in Indy and where will depend on how much sleep, if any, I get. Its a good 2.5 hour drive to Indy depend on how fast I drive and if there is any traffic, I can make it faster than that but not much.

Just let me know where and when in Indy to meet you guys and I will be there. I'm going to hit up best buy or radioshack tomorrow to get a walkie talkie. What channel are you guys going to be using. I will also have my CB radio with me too...its fun listening to the truckers sometimes haha
