      OK...SoWo is 2 months away and time is quickly disappearing. Before you know it there will be a mad dash to find out who's going and who's rolling from where.

      Enter this thread.

      I know Vortex can be a little slow in the South Regional section, but at least it will be here.

      Currently I'm running solo, preferably early morning May 17th.

      Tentatively meeting up with some Houston folks down somewhere. More details to come as time gets closer.

      Are you going? If so just list when and where from and planned route. Rolling to Georgia can be a long haul, but with some fellow enthusiasts it can be a blast!

      Post up!

      Yeah, my original plans fell through, so now I'm staying in Atlanta. It's a hop, skip and a jump from Helen.

      Drew and I talked about y'alls roll out, and that there would be a meet up with some Houston folks as well. Looking forward to more details as time approaches, should be a good little caravan.

      With some friends! I'm not from Atlanta so not sure what to tell you.



      Will be nice to have you swing through Austin and join me to cruise to meet up with more!

      We would really like to go. But in the end, we're having a hard time convincing ourselves to dump $1k on that weekend alone. ..

      Considering we use to live in South Carolina, and it only took us about 6hours _8hours (with our dog).

      It will probably come down to a split/last second decision for us. It will be the first year we miss though, if we don't go. We've been there since the beginning! Camping every year..

      If any of you need information about a really good campground, that is friendly for the vw's. Gives good deals. . Contact me. (Ps. its about 5minutes from town). But has nice flat roads for some good pulls.

      Rolling out the 17th. Going to take the longest way possible, well, without going West. lol Leaving Austin around 5am to be in Houston by 8am and rolling with some Houston folks.

      Other Austin folks are leaving the 18th.

      Being needed and having a flexible work environment are things that should go together. Sucks you won't be able to roll with us.



      We're staying in Helen now, at the Ramada. Should be able to accommodate you, just bring a sleeping bag, we'll split the cost in thirds making the trip cheaper for all of us.

      And the reason I can't make this trip. The only IT person and lately they have been denying me vacation times due to needing me too much as I am the only person that can handle anything including replacing toner on printers because staff refuse to do it themselves. LOL!

      Alright, I'm in. I'll leave on Thursday morning with Waldo and Marble. Looks like Cort will be riding shotgun. Wasn't sure if I could go, but I'm going either way now.
