      How many of you have done the 'Run with a co-Pilot that was NOT a significant other (boyfriend/girlfriend/wife/husband/etc)? How did it go? Any issues? I'm planning on going next year, and just seeing how things have gone with others.

      If I don't find someone, my dad has mentioned he was interested in going with me again like the first year.. so thats always an option.

      My first run I knew no one. I had someone to ride along and they backed out last minute. Budget wise I planned for a co-pilot and sharing expenses. I put out an invite and at least had a roommate commit. The next year the same thing happened and my previous room mate became a co-pilot as his car was down. Don't feel bad if you come alone, you won't be for long. Even Goldie has been known to ride a seat cover every now and then. wink image

      My dad came along last year and we had a blast. Wouldn't trade it for anything.

      If you can do the Run with your dad...do it!! It'll be the best bonding experience you'll ever have. (BTW...Solar Gold, I absolutely love your dad!) But if you have to come alone....still come!! If you throw out the fact that you have an extra seat, I'm pretty sure it'll get filled. Heck, sometimes I let other people drive my car so I can be a seat cover in another car for awhile!! The Run is all about meeting new people and making friends for a lifetime smile image

      And Dirty Bird....your co-pilot was drunk and annoying!!! Totally enhancing the Bandit Run experience wink image
       

       

      Imagine the possibilities

      He talked about buying a 1977 Red Convertible Caddy. But I talked to him after 10pm GA. time on a day when he did not work Sooooooo, I asked him if that was a new brand of vodka or an new kind of guitar.
      I think that car may be cost prohibitive both in driving it and in buying it. If he does get one I have a set of Horns to mount on it. Plus he could literately stay in the car and save on motel fees.

      RAMC has a Caddy on their site and it looks reasonably affordable. Either way bring him back and I;ll supply the Pierrie

      New to Run and plan on going next year. It sounds like a party, do many bring their woman with them or is it better to go solo? Thanks for the info.

      My wife has wanted to come but hasn't due to work conflicts but she is coming next year. The ladies look forward to this event as much as the guys. This is a family event and all are welcomed. The partying is up to you but rumor has it a few have seen the sun come up.
