    You could always mock up the Naboo Cruiser, it was VERY silver.


    For those of us driving, do we want to designate a specific, CENTRAL place to all meet up before we head out en masse for da pilgrimage?

    Perhaps out East of Aurora on I-70?

    How about Ripps (sp?) in Limon? It's the last chance truck stop for Colorado.

    I think it might be a good idea to meet to maybe the weekend before, go out to dinner or something, make sure everyone is on the same page, get to know one another.

    An update for Speeder 6- we procured ourselves transport to the Indianapolis System- will be departing from docking bay 94,
    (denver) at 13:00.

    Trying to get everyone together a week before CIII could be problematic. However, we are having our final pre-CIII meeting on Saturday, April 2 @ Mistress' new digs in Pueblo.

    That would probably be the best time/place for everyone to get to know one another.

    IF you are having last minute thoughts about driving...

    I was looking at Travelocity this morning...flights are
    $194.80..that is is including taxes/fees.

    i think there is still room on the NW flight a few of us are on. JUST an FYI for you. :)

    Hey all- this is Dave with Speeder 6- Just announcing an open spot in our car, and our hotel room. We will be leaving from denver between 3 and 4 pm on tuesday, checking into our hotel wednesday night, and checking out sunday night. You pitch for gas, and 75 bucks for the hotel, (thats for all four nights.) Considering our 'flamboyant' college nature, this spot may be best suited to a younger person, not too young, but not old either. (In other words- we're looking to do some serious partying there.
    If you are pregnant or nursing, have a pre-existing heart condition, high blood pressure or bad liver, this trip may not be for you. Consult your doctor about Speeder 6.

    Drafting I like.
    I have that down to a science. I can ride a bumper, look through their windsheild and tailgate the guy in front of them.

    The Main Group is leaving from my house at 6:30AM on Tuesday, April 19th and driving East on I-70 straight through until approx. 8PM, which will put us in Effingham, IL (Home of the Giant Lit Up Cross from Hell) for the night. There's a Friday's and a Cracker Barrell right off the highway there (so, here's where my former employment pays off, as we had a mall in that town). From there, the group needing to be onsite at the Indy Con Center for the X-Wing will be leaving at 7AM to arrive in Indy around 9AM. Giving us time for a quick bite before attacking the bird.

    The trip back is going to be a matter of personal preference. I for one will NOT be staying in Kansas overnight, so my truck will be traveling straight back to Denver at 6:30AM Monday, April 25th.

    I will have maps printed for everyone, getting them to their hotel(s) and I will have the mapping program on my laptop as well.

    Gooood MOrning Campers!

    Yeah, okay so cheery doesn't work for me :p

    Anyway, the Caravan of Fools will be departing from my Home at 6:30AM Tuesday Morning.

    All Items to be Transported MUST BE DELIVERED TO MY PLACE BY 7PM Monday.

    All Items must be waterproofed.

    We are leaving on time, and we are driving straight through to Effingham, IL to stop for the night on Tuesday.

    Wednesday morning we are leaving early and getting in to Indy NO LATER THAN 10AM... A big chunk of the Caravan will be working on a certain exhibit, so this is vital.


    My car is wired! I have an inverter which will allow operation of the laptop for many things (including DVD's [face_devil] ). I can also grab some of the EU Books on Tape, if anyone is interested. I do have room for 1 person for certain, and 2 in a pinch. I am driving a full size, 4DR, 4WD Dodge Ram PU... It's flippin' huge.

    I know there is concern from COS about his vehicle, so I am saying that if it is needed, we can probably split people up a little and pull a trailer w/ the truck (it has a 2" ball right now, but I think you can get another receiver ball for like $10 if the trailer has a different hitch). Do we know the status of the trailer yet?/>
