Less than 6 weeks before we leave for the big trip. We are going to have to decide on a meeting place for the 14th. I want to have this set in stone by the middle of the month Anyone that wants to go there is no deadline just let me know.
Anyone that will be camping for the trip I have talked to Slickrock Campground and was told that a reservation will probably not be needed, but I will call the week before just to make sure. They are currently offering a buy the first night get the second night free with a coupon that you can print off of there website. prices are as follows
single site $18.00
double site $28.00
extra adult $ 5.00
child over 5 $ 3.00
child under 5 free
I have stayed here in the past and it is a very nice place. Just having the shower everyday is worth the campsite fee. check out there website and let me know what you think. Slickrockcampground.com
The meeting place for the convoy has been set.
We are going to be driving out on 80-90 leaving from the rest stop on the west side of Toledo. The rest stop is apprx. 10 miles outside the city limits of Toledo. Please be there ready to roll at 7:00 a.m. we want to make alot of miles the first day. Hopefully making it as far as North Platte NE. Possibly even further if we can make goodtime. If anyone has any qeustions please call me at
Just for some clarification on the Rest Area Brandon refered to on the Ohio Turnpike and if I'm in error please correct me. Milepost 59 is Exit 4 (West Toledo/Maumee/I-475), Milepost 52 is Exit 3a and Milepost 49 would be the Service plaza. There is no other Service plaza until Milepost 21.
