Caravan To Nats From The Southeast

Ok, time to start putting together caravan info.

Starting in Florida, I am leaving Orlando about 5am on Wed. the 13th and DragonBullitt is leaving Tampa about the same time. We will meet on I-75 south of Ocala where the Florida Turnpike meets up with I-75. There is a rest area near the 345 mile marker. From there we will travel to Atlanta. Approximate arrival time is 12pm. We have two choices of how to go from there.

1. Continue north on I-75 to I-24 in Chattanooga and on to Nashville(arriving in that area around 4-5pm) then west on I-40 to Memphis.

2. From Atlanta, take I-20 west to Birmingham(arriving in that area around 1-2 pm) and then US78 to Memphis.

From my experience, the 1st option is about 85-90 miles longer but quicker because of being all interstate. The 2nd option has secondary roads on US78, but it has been about 3 1/2 years since I have been through there and US78 might be almost completed to B'ham, thus making that route quicker.

Also, which way we go will depend on if we are picking other Bullittheads up along the way and where that will occur.

Plans are to pull into Memphis somewhere around 7pm. I will post hotel info soon. Then on Thursday, leave Memphis around 8am and arrive mid afternoon in Tulsa. Memphis to Tulsa is about 410 mi. 5-6 hr. drive.

There are cool strip clubs in Memphis.

A little yellow dog down the street told me so.

Hmmm, depending on when we leave we may be in the Memphis area around the same time......
Sounds like we could roll into Tulsa as a group.

I'm in, although I will probably break from the convoy out of Memphis since I need to get in early to help set up.

I just made the trip from California to Atlanta over Memorial weekend...78 is better than it was last year(Memphis-Birmingham), but still breaks out at Jasper, and the local stretch in Memphis...and still took around 6 hours total....so....toss up as to what path to take.
