unless you guys are special and need a room to yourself, i don't see a big deal paying $150 for a room when it's split 5-6 ways. or $80 split 4 ways. especially when there's little to no cab fees needed. even better if it's for 1 night only. camp, (party, get room), camp. we also need to know what the deal is on sunday. can we camp or do we have to vacate the premises. i plan on running the whole day on sunday and don't want to start a 10hr. trip at 5 or 6pm. rather leave mon. morning.

+1 on leaving Monday morning. No way I want to go out Saturday night, race on Sunday, pack up, and start driving back, unless it is just to get a cheap room in the next town to the west.

I just did the math and it is going to cost me roughly $1000 for the weekend. So for the next 1.5 months my life will be what is in the picture below.


I honestly will probably leave Sunday night and drive 4-5 hours and then camp in my tow vehicle again. Then finish the drive home Monday. I don't really want to have to pay for an extra day of renting a trailer if I can avoid it.

I'm not sure I want to.park my car anywhere in New Orleans on any night of the week. Parking for any hotel in downtown will cost us $20/night. You're going to spend a minimum of $150 per night. I am willing to split a room though.

According to the NASA thread I linked to above, they are working on something for Saturday night and for hotel rooms. Stay tuned to that thread for details.

You can leave your car at the track and ride in the tahoe to the hotel if we get one.

Since you don't know what pegging is I guess you are up first for it.


What is the weather normally like in New Orleans around new years time?

Average low in the mid 40s, average high in the mid 60s. It will all depend on whether or not a front is blowing through.

I am working on finding another tow vehicle. If not I might suck it up and install cruise control in the track car. It would eliminate the problem of driving long distances.

I am going to do everything humanly possible to get out there for this event.

Safety wire would have saved your CHRA. After what Andrew and I went through, you should not be surprised. It's essentially a one-time $200 insurance policy on a $500 CHRA that will die every 3 days.
