  • Any Chicagoans Doin' the Long Haul?

    Hi all,

    This is my first post. I'm a long haul noob this year with my 77 amx. Looking for anybody leaving from Chicago (or the surrounding area) that would like to caravan down to Little Rock. Will be leaving Friday AM, and may go all the way thru, depending on if there is anybody else. Lookin' forward to it - we did the Wisconsin - Evansville,IN leg last year and had a blast!

    Not really a "Chicagoan" but I will be doing the long haul from collinsville il. Depending on what way you are planning to get to Little Rock you might pass by. I will be leaving out Friday and going all the way. Are you coming down 55 or 57? I live close and depending on the time frame we could meet up. I will be taking my '72 Dart.

          VA Cruise?
          Last year, on the Friday before the Saturday start to the Tour, 1 cheapstreet (Linda) organized a cruise to the local VA hospital, to spend some time with the vets and bring the cars. I had planned on going, but my daughter gave birth a few days before, so I had to delay my travel to Cleveland by one day.
          At any rate, this year, there's some talk about doing another "VA cruise", this time to one of the VA hospitals in the Little Rock area, on the Friday before the start of the tour; so....there's some of us planning on getting into LR by Thursday, so we can do the VA cruise on Friday. Cheaps, I think, is only doing a couple of the stops on the PT this year, but she is working behind the scenes to try and organize the Friday VA cruise.....

                It is in the works. Once the details are settled a new thread will be created with the info & to get a head count.

                    I live in Staunton Ill, right off of 55. Not sure if we are leaving Friday, but will be leaving early Sat. going down 55.
                    It's not the destination, but the journey and the friends you make along the way that counts.

                        I will have to see, my brother-in-law and his brother will be going too. They are from St. Jacobs. We didn't reserve a room for Friday, and it might be kind of late now.

                              WOW Chief - I didn't realize you guys where going to Little Rock through California :

                              See, I can be equally incorrect with California as I am with New Jersey and for the record - I AM a SoCal native. Those wonderfully smoggy days in Riverside must have caused some long term brain damage oh so many years ago.
