(IMG:style_emoticons/default/MDB2.gif) I did a little recon this morning and came up with a 56 mile drive. It's a bit longer than I originally anticipated, but, WOW! It has much to offer - VERY technical, rolling hills, twisty curvy, off-camber blinds & beautiful scenery abounds!

Here is my plan, which is slightly different than posted before.

MEET NOON
Columbus, Indiana
Northwest corner of I-65 Exit 68 (Indiana 46)
There is an vacant restaurant 200 yards from the freeway between a Swifty Gas and a Denny's.

DEPART 12:30pm PROMPTLY
56 mile loop
(IMG:http://www.moronthrottle.com/images/Nashville%20Tour%20Map%202003%20small.jpg)

We'll do a quick lap around town and enter Brown County State Park from the WEST entrance.
I'll contact the park for a location Monday (look for info added here)

THERE IS A FEE TO GET INTO THE PARK, but I can't remember what it is.

BS SESSION & PICNIC
We should arrive between 2:00 pm and 2:30pm.
BS and show & shine & picnic till folks want to leave
Picnic will be low key. I will provide lunch meats and buns with potato & macaroni salads and maybe some cole slaw.

If anyone is coming through Indy and wants to caravan to the Columbus starting spot contact me.
It takes 35 minutes to get there from my house. If anyone wants to spend the night Friday Oct 17th at my house I can make arangements to accomodate some. The guest room is spoken for, but I have a large L shaped couch in the basement that can sleep 2 more.

Please post a note if you plan to attend, spend the night & if you are bringing anyone.

Thanks,
I hope to see you all there!

Here is a VERY LARGE version of the map.
I will hand these out along with turn-by-turn directions at the starting point.

been looking at the logistics and i just don't think we can make it this year ...
which is a pity, 'cause we have some family south of there it'd have been convenient to visit, but i think it will have to wait for spring and the trip back home from Daytona ...

but THANK YOU for the planning and the map - we'll be over there one fine autumn or another.
if this turns into an annual event, please let us know - just since we both have new jobs arranging for time off is iffy, and i think it'd be 2 days there, 2 daysback under the best of circumstances - and we just can't take a week off right now...

this is the part of working for someone else i really don't like - but oh well...

Count me in!

I like the route! I'm not too familiar with the route from 46 to Freetown, but I've traveled the route from Freetown to Nashville a few times - WOW. This will be a fantastic drive.

Too bad we couldn't meet while you were here in Nashville. I spent the day on the east side of Indy.

Let me know if I can do anything to assist with event set up.

Doug,

sorry I didn't give you a heads up, but I got up, watched the F1 race. It ended early and I said "Go do the Nashville thing NOW!" So I jumped in my truck and started driving. I ended up going down 65 and I thought about meeting outside of town and cruising in. That way we are no where near the Hilly Hundred folks. I'm really pleased with the route, although it's a tad bit long, but worth it.

The first road we turn onto is called Four Mile Ridge Road. HAHA!! First 8 miles are the toughest! (IMG:style_emoticons/default/boldblue.gif)

Damm, even if I got the MIG working overtime I still couldn't make it this time, but sounds like a great event. Hpoefully it will be a yearly thing.......Tour de Hoosier. I sure will be happy to help next season.

Jerry,
you don't have to do it in a teener. You can drive your other car if you like.

Indeed. Jerry, I will probably be in an F150 Supercrew myself. The closest thing to a 914 that I will have with me is pictures of a rusty shell. I will probably just meet folks at the picnic site.

Teeners ARE the best! I suppose my '01 Jetta 1.7T Wolfsberg has some connection.........I know it's a stretch. I will certainly be there barring any disaster.

He posted pics of it recently.

What time zone? As many others perhaps do or do not know, Indiana has the most f#$%ed up time zones of anywhere. The southern part of the state is eastern time zone with daylight savings time. But Indy and other areas (most of the state) do not folloe daylight savings time. Hence, they are currently on CST until the time change. You never have to change your clock in most parts of Indiana.

I just want to be sure of when - had problems elsewhere before.

I forgot to put that one in.

Indiana is in Eastern STANDARD Time which is the same as Central Time until the time changes again (which is shortly after this event).
So we are NYC -1hour, Chicago-same, LA +2hours. Got it?
