Default Occupy Road Atlanta Dec 2-4

So there are several of us heading to Road Atlanta this coming weekend. So far I believe it will be Sixshooter, Genesplicer, Gryff, Track, and I. Is anyone else on mt planning on heading out?

Weather looks nice, high 50's during the day, and low 40's at night. A bit cool, but more then livable.

I think Sixshoot is planning on camping out with some friends Saturday night. I think I will be doing that to as I am cheap.

I am planning as of now to drive out Saturday morning. So I should be there between 11-12.

As of now I should be getting my cousins camera to bring out, so hopefully I can get good pictures.

I will also be brining a small air compressor and hopefully a tarp thing. Any other random tools you guys think you will need?

Yes! - I wimped out and got a room. Since theyv are having the banquet after the running on sat, that means no free beer and bbq - so we HAVE to go out after I'll be pulling in friday afternoon before the atl traffic gets bad - if there's any truth to that as it ALWAYS seems bad to me!

PM Track, I talked to him last week about possibly splitting a room. He might want to go in with you on one. That way it can save you both money.

It indeed is always bad, it starts about 3-3:30pm on Friday afternoons for downton connector traffic. So leave your place around 11am lol

Where are you staying? Buford? Oakwood? Braselton?

Braselton Holiday Inn Express, right next to Publix - it's where I usually "camp" out

Joe - no problem, just changed reservations to 2 doubles - driving miatas is one thing, sharing a king bed is another

I havent decided if I am camping or not, if I dont camp I have family near downtown atl that Ill be staying with, but if were all going out and getting drinks, I may just end up camping.

FWIW, Ill be bringing most of my tools, I have 4 old jackstands, still work just old, and a nice tool set with most anything we will ever need for a miata.

my plan is to head to atl friday, track, I assume you are taking 85 the whole way? Wanna meet up and caravan there? I'm literally 3 minutes off of 85.
Edit: thats a bit later than I was planning, but there isnt anything wrong with that. LMK

Do you guys have a place in mind for setting up? I usually set up in the row down from the fuel pump... it'd be great to know exactly how much space we need and when I get there I can try and rope off a certain area. Maybe the lower paddock below Tech would be better?

Being in the Oakwood/Gainesville area makes getting you some nice illegal immigrant *** easy.

haha, yea I have stayed at the oakwood comfort inn twice now. Its nice and cheap, but my last room sucked. the door didn't close all the way and the tea tasted like ****. and the coffee maker was full and spilled hot water everywhere.

First room was great.


Update for the weekend, my new VC gasket isn't coming in till friday...GAYYYYY. I should have stopped being cheap and ordered it from rosenthal. anyways, I will have to eat lunch in a car and drive back home to snag it up and put it on saturday morning.

I is excited! Now to complain to LLR about my alignment...
