We will be picking up one or two participants in the B’ham area that I met on last years tour.

Things to bring that are helpful
Foldable Chairs – Cooler and drinks – temp appropriate clothing – Printed hotel rsvp.
2 mile walkie talkie. Bring two and hand one out to other people. These help so we can spread communication out as we drive if someone has trouble we can all stop.

Thank you for the post Clint! I'm seriously looking to join you guys, if even just for a short stint through a small town.

Drive down to around B'ham and meet up with us and stay with us untill you get to Pulaski or so. That puts you around 2 hours driving, and you can stop and take pictures as we come through Cullman and jump right back in line. One thing we enjoyed was driving for about 50 to 60 miles, Stop to stretch our legs and get right back in line with a totally different bunch of cars. It was cool

I'm going to explore the Elkton/Pulaski route in TN and see how that's going to be. I may take pictures at the exit, jump in the car and race ahead to Elkton and Pulaski and then turn around and go home.

I think one of the things that must be going on for route selection is that the towns that the tour is passing through had to truly welcome it and make it special. Not at all like what Huntsville did where the cars just passed through the city and no one cared except the enthusiasts.

You got it. I'll be out running around tomorrow, mainly in Decatur. I'll have them with me. I'll be free the whole weekend except for processing pictures so I can meet up with you sometime if that works better.

I have found that most follow the listed route(90%), As a matter of fact if given the opportunity to get off the Interstate they will take it. I am sure you will have cars skip the culman swag but probably not the Pulaski/Columbia/Franklin part of 31.

Bruce I sent you an email or you can click on the link for the map in the heading of this thread. It highlights the route turn by turn through this area.

I'll be there tomorrow morning too, just to see you guys off. I'll see you again in Pulaski, TN. I just got back from there and that's going to be a great place to see the tour. And the route there is some breathtakingly beautiful country, so the drive will be nice. Just watch out for the little towns that drop the speed limit 15mph. Those look like they could be speed traps.
