Starting this thread to see who is going to Okteenerfest from DFW?

Clay and Betty are going and invited me to tag along (and try to keep me from getting lost). (IMG:style_emoticons/default/red914.jpg) (IMG:style_emoticons/default/betty914.jpg)

Who else is going?

I would love to go but that would require I have a running 914 (IMG:style_emoticons/default/sad.gif)

Just so everyone knows....

We are leaving early on the 12th and making it a long first day. That way we can go to the museum at Barbor Motorsport Park on the 13th.

Also, we don't drive slow, and we don't stop a lot. Just for gas.

Lawrence, are we picking you up near Talledega??

I’ll hang on the best my 82 RWHP 1911cc can.

Not true. My 914 wasn't running last year so I drove my MX-5. We had a great time but I'm look forward to this year in the 914.

Same here. I’m in Shreveport and can help out my DFW brothers and sisters in any way I can, even if y’all just want to stop for a beer or two (IMG:style_emoticons/default/beerchug.gif)

Thanks Perry.. but we are taking I20 from DFW to Atlanta. Turn north at Atlanta to Helen GA.

Simple route.

10 hours from our house to Barbour Motorsports Park Museum.

Another 3.5 to Helen, GA... not including time zone change.

So the second day driving is really easy.

Betty has been doing some research for the trip.

Livingston Alabama would make the first day 8 hours 18 minutes. 2 hours to Barber the next morning. Very limited choice of hotels, and places to eat.

Tuscaloosa Alabama would make the first day 9 hours. 1 hour 8 minutes to Barber the next morning. Much better choice of hotels.

Barber museum opens at 10:00.

If the other(s) are willing, we would like to stay the night in Tuscaloosa. That would mean we can sleep a little later before heading to Barber Motorsport Park. The museum is $15.00.

We figure to be back on the road a 1:30. With the time change we should be in Helen, GA around 6pm.

If anyone wants to join the caravan along the way, the more the merrier. Just let us know where to meet up with you.

I'm like that schedule if my butt holds out. With stops for gas and food about 10 hour day. My back up plan is to evaluate my bones somewhere around Meridian, about a 8.5 hour day with stops. That leaves about a 6.5 hour drive onto Helen the next day. Not saying I will but seat time for us old timers is not what it used to be.

Tuscaloosa works for me. My plan is to spend the night in the DFW area; do you have recommended area that will make it easy for me to hook up with you in the morning? Thanks

Search Hurst, Bedford, a Euless Tx. 3 bedroom towns just west of DFW airport on hwy 183. Probably 20 motel stops in that area and close to a kickoff place.

Check this Link

We will be going through the 360/183 intersection on our way south to I20.

So anything close to that point, or follow 360 south.

There is a Motel6 close to that in Euless. $49 a night.

Donna and I will plan on meeting you guys at Barber at 10 a.m.

The Museum is well worth the visit.

If you are coming in on I20, then it might be better to meet us at I20 and 360.

Here is a link to all the hotels in the area. If you come to 183 and 360, you will just have to backtrack to I 20 anyway.
