View Full Version : Caravan to Waynesboro, Va
May 25th, 2008, 02:55 PM
My plans are to leave early on Thursday morning around 10am. I want to get there and get things ready for us. If anyone wants to tag along, please let me know.
Here is the route I'm taking. (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=&saddr=3915+Avera+Ave&daddr=Waynesboro,+Waynesboro,+Virginia,+United+States&mra=pe&mrcr=0&sll=37.130552,-79.591644&sspn=2.977946,4.240723&ie=UTF8&ll=37.142803,-79.903564&spn=2.977429,4.240723&z=8)

OK, it looks like Blimey will no longer be heading up on Thursday and I haven't seen anyone else post anything as far as a Triangle group or a caravan later in the day than Twister's 10:00 a.m. start. So, I suppose I'll throw out my current plans and if anyone wants to hookup, we can give it a try.
I'm planning to leave from my house around 1:00 - 1:30 p.m. If Google Maps is correct, that should put us there right at about 6:00 p.m. Below is a link to the route I'm planning to follow:
Google Route to Waynesboro (http://maps.google.com/maps?f=d&hl=en&geocode=14596136580475657311,36.509570,-79.233160%3B5461490027261295540,36.642410,-79.314140%3B12871191573035906687,38.062547,-78.937756&saddr=1905+Elmwood+Dr,+Graham,+NC+27253&daddr=NC-62+%4036.509570,+-79.233160+to:Ringgold+Church+Rd+%4036.642410,+-79.314140+to:37.042024,-79.49707+to:2060+Rosser+Ave.,+Waynesboro,+VA+22980+%28Days+Inn+Waynesbor o%29&mra=dpe&mrcr=0&mrsp=3&sz=9&via=1,2,3&dirflg=h&sll=37.140614,-79.205933&sspn=0.978667,2.183533&ie=UTF8&ll=37.129666,-78.75&spn=2.920936,5.646973&z=8)
This will actually give me a chance to scope out a road for an event up to Smith Mountain Lake I've been thinking about proposing to THMMC, so I can kill two birds with one stone.:)
I'll be driving on the conservative side as my wife will be with me and she is already bordering on nausea just thinking about the leisurely drive on the BRP.:eek: Needless to say, we will not be participating in Blimey's post BRP run!
If there is enough interest from either the east or the west, I can adjust the route a little bit to make it easier to get everyone together.
Just post and let me know if you want to join me and we'll see what can be done to have a second caravan headed the Waynesboro way.

We are aiming to leave by 12:00 from W/S, SHHHH telling the wife eleven....;)

Not sure where you are coming from -- sorry, I'm having a hard enough time keeping the names, screen names, and cars straight w/o figuring out who belongs to what city ... but ... I can not leave "town" til about Noon -- that's town being Raleigh -- means I can co-ordinate in W/S | GSBO area around 1-1:30 ..
and LEISURELY is the only way that MY MINI knows how to go ... otherwise, I, of course, would set fire to the asphalt ... ha ha ha
(anyone who knows me knows that "car" excuse is mighty convenient ...)

Well, you'll hit Graham before you hit either G'boro or W-S. We're right next to Burlington at exit 147 on the Interstate. I'll actually be leaving work in Durham at noon, takes about 30 minutes for me to get home. Load up and I'll be ready to leave. Unless you can hook up with someone going straight from Raleigh, my route should work pretty good for you.
June 6th, 2008, 05:39 PM
That sounds good! I will take 40 to exit 147 and meet up with you there somewhere .. around 1-1:30 sound OK to you? If you are familiar with a good place to meet (ie landmark of some sort) I'm not familiar, just name it and I'll find it ...
If there are others coming from Raleigh on our timeframe they can either meet me in Raleigh and we'll caravan to Graham .. or they can meet both of us at the designated spot Exit 147 ..
We'll exchange contact info in the next week or so .. don't know about you, but with hot as it is, I'M READY for some cool mountain air!!

I'm leaving from Raleigh but can't leave Raleigh til 12-12:30 on Thursday (and I *will* be packed, gassed up and ready to go!!) and at this point I had planned on co-ordinating with Jeff around Exit 147 off 40 around 1:30 ... anyone in Raleigh area who wants/needs to leave around 12:30 and hit Exit 147 around 1:30 to catch up with Jeff (who's got it all mapped out after that --- I'm just following --- like what else is new??) please do .. I work near the RBC Center and plan to get on 40 at Exit 290, but that's flexible ..
Let me know .. thanks!
June 15th, 2008, 06:04 PM
Mark, I'll head to your place Thursday morning, too.
June 15th, 2008, 08:15 PM
Susan (and anyone else wanting to catch up with my route):
I'll help those out coming from the east the tiniest bit and make the rendevous point Exit 150 (Haw River). When you exit, at the top of the ramp, turn right. Immediately to your right will be a Wilco-Hess gas station/truck stop. We'll meet there in the parking lot (go on past the gas pumps down by the fast food restaurant - a Wendy's I think). I think we should probably try to be ready to depart at 1:30 p.m.
Susan, from the RBC Center I can make it to 150 in about 40-45 minutes depending on traffic, normally running about 75 give or take a few. Of course, that is usually late at night after Wolfpack games.
See y'all then!!!
June 15th, 2008, 08:35 PM
Sounds good and if you'll send me your cell phone # I'll call you if any changes in expected ETA .. mine is 919-606-6515. I know the exact exit and W/H you are referring to so that will work well.
Anybody coming out of Raleigh that wants to co-ordinate off 40 in Raleigh, I can be at the Comfort Suites, Exit 290 at 12:30 .. just give me a call ..
June 15th, 2008, 09:19 PM
Hey everybody don't forget to bring your radio and the CHARGER if ya got them!;)
June 15th, 2008, 10:33 PM
That will be 336-675-1652.
June 15th, 2008, 11:07 PM
thanks ... Thursday can't get here soon enough!
June 18th, 2008, 11:43 AM
Okay, the package arrived today which is great. This now means I'm free to leave at anytime. I would prefer to leave around 10am on Thursday. If anyone wants to come to the house before, please do. let me know how early you can be here and we will leave shortly after. I'll be packed and ready!
June 18th, 2008, 03:11 PM

June 18th, 2008, 03:13 PM
Mark, I will probably be in your area around 9 or so if that's cool.
June 18th, 2008, 03:19 PM

June 18th, 2008, 09:58 PM
