    Default Attendees from Northern Virginia w/driving directions

    Et All,
    If you desire to roll in convoy to the event departing NOVA on Friday morning then sign up here. I will be posting link-up and departure time in the near future once I do the route planning, establish a timeline etc.
    If you are driving your rig and get less than 10-11 mpg, then let me know so I can properly figure out the fuel stops, etc.
    If you do not have a CB or FMRS "Talk About" then I can provide you one with fresh batteries to use but you are required to supply additional batteries.
    If you plan to camp, please bring a bundle of wood for the fire pit. I am unsure if any wood is available there so be a Boy Scout and be prepared.

    Link-up and departure time:
    The link-up location is the Kingstown BP Gas Station at 6700 S Van Dorn St, Alexandria, VA 22315
    http://maps.google.com/maps?f=q&sour...158.203125&z=3 this will allow for fuel, food, coffee and a bathroom before we start.
    Departure time: 24 1130 APR 09 (at 1133 GPS Time we depart, so plan accordingly and arrive prior to departure time)

    Google Earth calculated the driving time at 3 hours. Giving fuel and bathroom stops the real planning time will be more like 4 hours. This will get us up there and allow us to set up camp while it is still light.


    Cheers!
    Fifthpro

    Austere Mobility in a '99 TJ Sport with a few bells and whistles

    The bravest of all Spartans was Dienekes. It is said that on the eve of battle, he was told by a native of Trachis that “the Persian archers were so numerous that, when they fire their volleys, the mass of arrows will block out the sun.”

    Dienekes, however, quite undaunted by this prospect, remarked with a laugh, “Good. Then we’ll fight in the shade!”

    Sounds like a good plan. Just let me know as the time gets closer.

    I'll more than likely be rolling up to the camp ground on Friday, but probably not until later in the afternoon.
