Barber Vintage Travel Plans
« on: October 04, 2013, 01:32:10 am »
Wondering what peoples travel plans are for riders from Central Florida.

I plan to leave either after work (2:00 PM) on Wed and ride part way up and get a cheap motel or leave at 5:30 Thu morning and ride straight through.

I will be leaving very early Thursday morning. I would not go near Atlanta on the way up there.

I live south of Atlanta in McDonough. You all are welcome to stay with me Wednesday night. Eddie is coming up on Wednesday, spending the night and we plan on leaving for Barber on Thursday about 11am. We should miss any heavy traffic by leaving at 11am. Barber is about 2 1/2 hours from my house. I have a route through Alabama from Heflin to Chehaw SP to Talladega ending up on Hwy 25 which ends in Leeds, AL, that we plan on taking.

Let me know, plenty of room.

Kurt: It's a pity I work til late Wednesday. I would wanna get started Wed night and crash at ur place if I could.

I'm planning on leaving Thursday morning and running my app "Waze" on my phone so I can track my buddies who also signed up on there.

I wanna take 10W to 231N to 85N to avoid Atlanta. This adds only 18 minutes onto the shortest route, and it's much nicer.

I'm thinking Murphy Gas Station in Live Oak is a good rendesvous point.....

Who's with me?

This is a 10 hour ride not including any stops.
There is a MacDonalds  on Monroe just north of i10
Good place to meet. /around  Noon sounds good to me.

Following this route, be aware that the traffic in and around Dothan is a booger. Larry Buck and I found that out last year on the way to AR. Even the bypass is killer!
