Topic: Friday Night Meetup RT 66 rally

Where are we meeting Friday night before the start?

I should be pulling in sometime mid-afternoon if the suBurban makes it that far! Anyone else bringing a dog?

I'll be getting in to the Clarion Joliet Around 3 hours after I think I'll be there (as is the standard for me) So probably early evening.

I'm guessing everyone is staying in the Joliet Area?

Or are some people doing the full run and starting in downtown Chicago before driving down to Joliet for the Registration?

I'd bet some money that the organizers will set the beginning sign as a checkpoint for day one! They are crazy enough for that! What say Steve and The Rood? Where you guys staying?

That's our plan

Re: Friday Night Meetup RT 66 rally

We are down for a meet up.  If things hold together, we will be there early afternoon. Let us know where the party is.

I am down for a Meetup, we should be cruising in late afternoon barring catastrophe between California and Chicago

Rood lives in the Chicago area so he's probably staying at home.

I think Brian is right, and a safe bet would be checkpoint 1 is the beginning sign in front of the Art Institute, and the last checkpoint is the end sign on the Santa Monica pier.

I just had a look at the mileage for day 1. The Lemons site says day 1 is about 350 miles. It's barely 300 from Joliet to O'Fallon, IL, but it would be 350 if you went via Jackson/Lake Shore Dr. I think we're going to just go to Autobahn in the morning and count on the first checkpoint being in the loop.

God the traffic. even 30 cars all trying to stop at the art museum to take a picture.
