Vet4JDC and I did a run over the route today. Looks like about 2 hours of back roads from Newport News through York Co, Grafton, Yorktown, Williamsburg, Jamestown, Lightfoot, Norge, and Toano.

Looks like Sunday may be the best day for it but keep posting here letting me know if you prefer one day over the other. I'm going to open it up to the Beachcombers and "that other forum" and see how many we can get to participate.

Tony, not sure if you have a place to eat picked out yet, but The Old Chickahominy House in Williamsburg is a good place to eat.

Looks like best date for most participation will be Sunday March 14.

The route looks like fun even at "5-7 mph" over the speed limit, tons of twisties

VET4JDC and I found what looks like a good place for a few beers and lies at the end of the rally.

Thanks Tom, I'm trying to stay away from the crowded areas but due to the detour on the Colonial Parkway we wind up going right by here but with 20 or so miles left to drive on the rally route.

Making another run today to verify the route and landmarks. 37 turns and not one street name or number in the directions Should make for an interesting ride

Hmmmm Missed a couple of turns in the directions, folks might have wound up in Maryland or NC

Route is about 65 miles of back roads, plenty of twisties and pretty cool things to see. It took us about 2 hours to drive it in the TBSS SUVette.

We tried out the ending restaurant and it will make the food and the drink junkies happy

Habitat threw in some hats and other giveaways for us so all we need now is a good weather forecast

OK just talked with the wife and we are in, this sounds like it will be fun. I will not be worried about being one the first to finish or penalties for not answering questions. I simply want to finish this without the need to go to see a divorce attorney when we are done . Hopefully we will work together on this and she will not me.
