Cliff,
The majority of planning and questions for the convoy are done through yahoo groups. I personally live in the Pittsburgh area. A small group and I are usually the first ones to the Cracker Barrel restaurant at New Stanton. Jerry Chandler is in touch with me keeping me up to date on where the groups are. I warn the restaurant that the group is coming. The I-70 and an I-76 convoys converge at New Stanton, PA.

Merkur I-70 Convoy dramatically different this year.
We are heading from St.Louis to Grayson's MC2Racing, super-duper, brand new garage to fondle suspension parts and oogle over his racecar , RS200 and other goodies.. will be there Thursday evening.

We will overnight at the EconoLodge in Jeffersonville, Ohio on I-71 and depart at 7:30am on Friday for our lunch stop at New Stanton, Pa. Cracker Barrel.

The convoy will be rather small this year.. maybe ten cars or so. If we can get out of New Stanton a little early, we can divert from the Pa. Turnpike for an hour or so and run the US-30 thru the mountains.. wonderful, uncrowded drive. This route allows us to make a brief pit-stop at the Flight 93 Memorial near Shanksville, Pa. We join the Pa. Turnpike at Breezewood and can still stop for that ice cream cone at the Sideling Hill Service Plaza.

This may be one of the nicest convoy runs ever. If you'd like to join us anywhere along the route, please phone me at 724-448-5687

I'm looking for a way back to the Columbus/Dayton area after the show.
Any takers?

Thanks,
Jeremy Hidy
