      As much as I enjoyed the Saturday morning caravan to SoWo last year, many of us have decided to head up to SoWo on Friday this year instead. It's been discussed at get togethers and at Wookies in the Woods that a Friday morning caravan be setup for those of us opting to head up on Friday. We threw around the idea in the SoWo forum, but for the sake of keeping it simple, I've moved the discussion here to be more visible to the locals.

      As per the discussion in the SoWo forum, the departure point below seemed to be okay with everyone:

      FRIDAY MAY 18, 2012
      Einstein Bros Bagels Parking Lot
      1100 Hammond Drive Northeast #600, Atlanta, GA
      Meet at 9:30-9:45AM, depart at 10:00 AM sharp!






      Proposed route to Helen: http://g.co/maps/dja42

      Plenty of parking spots in the Einstein lot. This likely won't be as big of a caravan as the one departing on Saturday. Speaking of which...

      Note: this is NOT the official durtydubs caravan that departs Saturday morning. If you're looking for that thread, click here: http://forums.vwvortex.com/showthrea...aravan-cruise-....

      So who's in for Friday?

      1. ru1ned+2 - MkV R32
      2. dubb34r - MkVI GTI
      3. hxcdubbin239 - ?
      4. gregg3gs - MkVI GTI
      5. AWPower - MkV R32
      6. WAWPLGTI - MkV GTI
      7. Pakkalakka - MkIV GLI
      8. 24 valves of sloww+1 - MkIV GLI
      9. chubs625 - MkVI GTI
      10. Slim4life+3 - Various
      11. FissionMailed - MkVI GTI
      12. theseeker411 - MkV GTI
      13. TheMunky - MkIV GTI
      14. HWY HNTR
      15.

      See you all there!

      What's with us and driving places early in the morning...

      I need to sort out what I'm doing. Def hitting SOWO on Friday and possibly again on Sat. Do I really see myself getting up this early and staying till the Klutch party at night to drive back home and do it all over again in the AM?

      For sure. Last year was brutal. I may just drive up later in the afternoon so I can hit the MKVI GTG and then the Klutch party.

      Would love to join, but I'm not planning on leaving the house till 10AM, and I'm about an hour south of Einstein's w/o taking traffic into consideration.

      I'll see you guys up in Helen around lunch time though.

      Whether I meet you at 10am down in Atlanta, or I wait for the caravan to pass by right outside my house, I'll be there.

      When is this?

      Doubt I'll plan on anything as I'm in DE, but trying to get involved in the club.

      Sorry about that! Guess I assumed everyone knew what weekend SoWo was. SoWo is the weekend of 18May. This caravan is for Friday, 18May. Have you moved to Atlanta recently? Your profile says you're from the Delmarva.

      I was going to head up Saturday but things changed I'm going to be there Friday now. Its going to be my wife and I in my b4 passat. And then some briends from ohio. One in a bmp 20th and the other in a mk2 vr6 gti.
      The VW community is the only group of enthusiasts around that share a genuine desire to be connected and express their enthusiasm with complete strangers who share nothing more then a common passion for our cars.

      If this is still happening, I'm in. Gonna leave Chattanooga about 6:30 or 7am-ish, I guess. I have a room booked for Friday and Saturday, and the Chattavegas cruise is leaving Saturday morning.

      Well, for starters, bagels for breakfast. What is that nonsense (is einstein bros any good? never been, though i am certainly going to try it). Then, an entire weekend filled with watercooled VWs and driving in the mountains and large convoys of hatchbacks and turbos and

      PS: I am staying at Alpine Village, which is right near the Helendorf and Bigg Daddy's and everything (same place I have been the past few years, it's where people were doing burnouts last year). It was going to be me +1, but uh now it's only me, so if anybody needs a place to crash, there you go, just PM me or ask me in this thread or say something to me next Friday or Saturday or get in contact with me some way (in February I stayed in a $14 hotel in Reno with a guy I'd never met so I'm not really nervous about random people)
