Road trip!

It is going to be close to 70 this weekend but instead of going somewhere then we are packing to go to the Keys for at least two weeks. How about some of you Palazzo owners come on down too! We are staying at the Jolly Roger on Marathon starting the 18th. BTW it is predicted to be cold at home starting about that time. Talk about perfect timing....

Jack,

Will you be coming down I-85 through NC when you go to Gaffney? If so when are you going? We are just off I-85 and may be home when you go. Would like to meet you if it works out.

Gary,

We need to be in Gaffney Monday morning the 11th. We will be traveling south on 75 to Knoxville (stopping for 2 days) then catch 40 over to 85 and up to Gaffney. After we are finished at Freightliner (planning up to 3 days) we will travel north to Summerfield NC (Northwest of Greensboro) to visit a brother-in-law and then head south to Florida. My guess we will depart for Florida around the 18th but no firm schedule.

It would appear that we will be passing near Jamestown going to and/or from Summerfield and it would be nice to meet up if this fits in your schedule?

Jack

Our plans are to be at the Jolly Roger on Mzrathon for two weeks starting 1/18. After that we don't have any concrete plans. We will either head home or head to another place. We should be home in time to get with you when you are in the area.

One thing you may want to consider is from Knoxville is to go East on 40 and then to go South on I-26 out of Asheville toward Greenville/Spartanburg and then go North on 85. It may be quicker for you that way. Another option is to take 40 East to I-77 South out of Statesville toward Charlotte. That will take you to 85 South to Gaffney. Or take US 321 out of Hickory South toward Gastonia and then South on 85 to Gaffney.

All of those routes will be shorter than taking 40 to I-85 and then South to Gaffney.

Gary,

I just double checked my routing and it had me routed per your suggestion above. I will stay in touch with my travels and hopefully our schedules will line up and we can get together.

Thanks for suggesting this!

Jack

Traveling South sounds like a great thing to do this time of year but work calls!

I am considering a jaunt over to McKinney (from Las Vegas, NV) for MCD Shades. Please let me know how your experience was for the week at MCD.

Jack,

You may want to wait until you get into SC before filling up with diesel. It is cheaper there than in NC.

Gary,

Thanks for the heads up! I am full now so I have enough to get to Gaffney and I will top off before I head towards NC.
