    I was thinking about maybe putting some signs in my car window on the way to C:II alerting passerby's to my destination (i.e. "Star Wars or Bust", "See you @ C:II", etc). And was wondering if anyone else was going to do this as well? I don't know if I will pass anyone on the way there, as I have a straight shot from I-69. So, I think mostly, if anyone, I would pass people coming from MI and maybe Northern IN.

    Overall--are you going to put C:II signs in your car window, and what highways will you be traveling?

    Honk if you see another attendee!!

    Let's see...

    We'll take I-30 East out of Dallas/Fort Worth. That will take us all the way to Little Rock, Arkansas, where we'll switch over to I-40 East.

    I-40 East takes us all the way to Nashville, Tennessee, where we'll switch to I-65 North. That will take us the rest of the way to Indianapolis.

    We'll definitely have some kind of sign up in the windows. :)

    Cool, GMJ :) You'll probably run into a lot of people on 65...looks like everyone will run into the most fellow attendee's on 65, 70 and 74.

    We'll be taking I-75 south to I-70 east.

    Hadn't really thought about putting any signs in the window or anything, but I just may now!

    I-78 west through NJ and Pennsylvania (including a quick detour onto US 22) to I-81 south, then we pick up I-76 west through Ohio to I-70 west. It's a straight shot as the starfighter flies, but not so on a map. :)

    We are definitely putting a sign in our window. We did it for the first Celebration in Denver and we're going to do it again! We'll honk if we see anybody! Indy or Bust!

    I will also take I69 straight down from the Oakland area. I will have a sign letting people know, and I will be driving down around 6 on thursday. Honk and wave if you see me.

    I was thinking about that too. If I think of something catchy, I will. Coming from Wisconsin so if you are coming that way, HONK.

    awesome robert, me too :)

    It works out pretty cool that we can just take one highway, only thing that's unfortunate is that the speed limit will drop once we exit MI ;)

    The speed limit only drops if you get pulled over Iwakura.

    heheh, yeah I suppose that's true! :)

    Edit: Oh, I also forgot...I just got my AAA triptik today and found out that I will be on more than just I-69...guess when I get into Indy I also go on 70 and 65 (via 465), albeit briefly.

    Hey Iwakura! Nice phrase- "See you @ CII!" I like it. We're traveling all day Thursday taking 1-75 North from North Georgia to 1-24 West and on to I-65 North past Louisville. Hopefully I'll have my C-3PO bobblehead doll by then to go along for the ride.

    Taking Rt. 70 all the way out there from Baltimore, MD. About a 10 hour drive and I look forward to every second of it. I've downloaded 7 hours of Star Wars music onto 5 CD's to make for the ULTIMATE ROAD TRIP COLLECTION!! They're full of remixes, techno versions, comedy bits and other various goodies!! Never thought I'd look forward to being in a car for so long.

    I will also be coming in from the Detroit area. I'll take 75 north to 69 west, which turns into 69-south. Given the time of day I'm leaving (5:30 am Friday) that way is the fastest. My girlfriend and I were just in Indy over the weekend, and it was good to get an idea of where everything was at. Highway 465 basically makes a big circle around the city of Indianapolis, so that should keep most of us from getting lost. I'll take 69 to 465 around to I-70 then cruise into the Comfort Inn from there. Hope to see many of you there!!

    MrSkinnee: where did you get all your sw music? I have "Star Wars Breakbeats" which I will definitely be listening to during the drive...but that's only an hour of music...I'd like to get some more! :)

    royalguard96: sounds like we're taking a similar route (of course coming from MI I-69 is the only one TO take) I think we may be a little bit ahead of you cause I'm leaving earlier...although you'll kind of have a 2 hr. head start cause I'm about 90 miles North of Detroit. So, if I leave at 2am I think you'll be an hour behind....drive fast and catch up! ;)

    Iwakura,
    I've gotten i all off of the music server I use, http://winmx.com. It works great for me and is very similar to napster in format. I've just spent a lot of time on there searching for keywords that are SW related. Took a loooooong time to accumulate my collection of songs but it was worth it.
