Fingers crossed, but no promises...
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-....

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.
edit: Mk6 GTI

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)
