Most of you guys will be ahead of me, I'm heading up Rt 4 to the Washington beltway around to I-95 North, pick up the ICC to I-270, then I-70 to Breezewood and the Turnpike to the hotel. Since we are staying for the week until the PVGP the next weekend we are trailering (wife won't stay in the car that long)
Look for the gas hog truck and dirty trailer at every gas station
Owned since 1971, driven over 237,000 miles, makes me smile every time I drive it and it makes me feel 21 again.😎

Whether my car will be ready is coming down to the wire. Transmission still needs to be bolted in and then test drive. This will be first trip in this car for over 30 years. Some shakedown! I plan on leaving early, 7:30 AM (cooler). Anyway, I leave from Arnold, do the Balto Beltway to 40 (gets me off the beltway sooner), then connect to 70. I don't like the PA turnpike, so I am planning on taking 68 to Frostburg, then head to Pittsburgh. Thought I got a last minute room at Doubletree, but didn't. Now at the Hilton Garden Inn. If Shelby not feeling good, still coming in something else. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Charlie,

I sure hope your car is done in time.  I am really looking forward to seeing it.

You are leaving bright and early but I understand the heat thing.

Bummer about the hotel. Hopefully you can park at the host hotel in the marked off area for security reasons.  If you need help getting back and forth to your hotel let me know.

Corey

No luck getting it finished. Too many loose ends to risk the trip. I'll be there, probably the only one in a Volvo wagon. Maybe I should still do a parade lap! See you all there.

See you there. Make the parade lap count (Volvo translates as “I roll”)
