      Someone asked earlier about how far do we travel each day...

      From Texarkana Hotel to Lafayette Hotel - 285 miles (4 hours / 29 min)

      From Lafayette Hotel to Beau Rivage - Biloxi - 199 miles ( 3 hrs / 1 min)

      From Beau Rivage to Montgomery - 228 miles (3 hrs / 15 min) then from
      Montgomery to Leeds Hotel - 95 miles (1 hour / 20 min) TOTAL=322 miles

      And from Leeds to Year One - 184 miles (3 hours / 5 min)

      The last day (Friday) will be the shortest distance. Unless of course if you don't count the next day (Sat.) and the trip up to Thunder Road from Year One. lmao image

      Looking forward to the 2 full days at the Beau Rivage! If you haven't taken the virtual tour of the Hotel and Casino property... here's the link... your gonna like where we are staying those two nights!

      As stated before, wife and I gona do a straight drive from here in kennesaw 11-14 hrs(north of atlanta) to tex. my only worry is the wifes back, as her lower spine is fused and she cant sit too too long, so I suspect numerous stops and walks, but she/we will make it, like others mentioned, we will be tired, but the hype is enough to get that second wind, and with all the beautiful cars and great people, we will sleep when we pass out.... hyper image shes already getting pumped, eek image she never did anything like this so Im hoping for a jolly good time.....How many more days shaker? scratchchin image ...

      Yep. Big Daddy, Poncho Freek and I will be running fast as well.... 709 miles, 10.5 hours. Not sure when we'll get to leave ATL that Friday but it'll be in a blaze of red, black, and blue (smoke that is)!

      If I do bring "Blue", I may leave 'er in Birmingham with friends just so we can drive both cars back to Atlanta on the last day.

      Thanks for the info, Shaker. We have an 11 1/2 hour drive to get to Texarkana so the rest will be a piece of cake! Be good to see you again.
