So the plan is as follows.

Day 1

Meet on the East end of Denver, the Walmart shopping center on the north side of Tower Rd and I-70 at 10:00 AM. There is a gas station on the East side of Tower Rd, fill up before leaving. Goal is to be on the road by 10:45 AM. We'll stop for fuel and food as needed, but last year I had to stop around Oakley, and again east of Topeka. I will be crashing at Inis's house that night.

Day 2

Meet up with the KC Crew. The location and Time is TBA, but last year it was at Walmart off of Adams Dairy Pkwy, Blue Springs, MO. From there straight out to St Louis. Last year after 2 breakdowns, St Louis construction and general asshattery from the local drivers, and having to push a car onto a trailer, we barely made registration. I believe we left at 11:30 AM



Lodging for the night in KC.
It would be ideal if everyone were to stay at the same place so we aren't driving around trying to find each other. This place has a decent rating and is 50 bucks for a room with 2 twins.

Sweet...I'm up in Wellington. Can't wait. This will be our first road trip with the new SVT. The wife and I are really looking forward to this trip.

My lil red one is bone stock with only 78K on it at the moment.

So are you guys staying Friday night in KC then heading during the day Saturday to Focusfest? If so, I might want to catch you as you come through Boonville, Columbia, or Kingdom City exits.
