      Both ways i might do 600 miles.

      Anyone coming from New England or further West than Mississippi is driving a pretty good ways.

      Its 152 miles straight shot for us here in Knoxville, TN but we're detouring to Chattanooga (198 miles) to meet up with the other TN Dubbers. If anyone else is in TN and wants to pick up on the cruise (the convoy is going to be HUGE!!!) here's the link to it.
