Post by anglin » Wed Nov 01, 2006 3:44 am

Yes, there WILL be an I-70 convoy that includes a stop at my place. I may not be there, but Connie will be with a camera to take pictures that will be emailed to me. Plan on being there!

Info on the path this convoy takes...

From the west the I-70 convoy travels east and stops Near Dayton on Thursday night. Friday morning east through Columbus, Zanesville, and Wheeling WV. Lunch is at the meeting point where 70 and 76 (from Northern Ohio) converge and become the PA turnpike in New Stanton PA. After lunch it's onto Carlisle.

Many in the past have backtracked to certain points on the convoy. Hell, if you are in Maryland, Mapquest your journey from home to New Stanton to Carlisle. You will most likely past Carlisle.

We actually need those from the east coast to start planning their convoys here SOON!

hey jay, unfortunately you're on the wrong part of 70. the convoy comes accross 70 from the west then catches the PA turnpike in western PA to head to carlisle.

however, if you wanna come up to westmisnter that friday morning you can roll with me and jen from waynesboro.

p.s. i think you're more like a minute and a half from 70. lol

Just chiming in to catch up / make plans with our group if you are heading east on 76 through MI, OH, or PA along the way to our merge with the i-70 convoy in New Stanton.

I think I need to get Connie on board in a hurry with Huber stop planning. I don't know if she has any particular ideas about what to do and maybe I'll take the lead on some of the planning since she has her plate full, playing both roles in running our house. Stay tuned for the best convoy to Carlisle evar...
