Pssh thats something we like to call an adventure! It was like an episode of top gear! Besides at this point I know where to go exactly. Last time I missed a sign or didn't go far enough because it was dark. Besides issues can happen regardless lol, gotta be prepared!

There's the google maps version. Looks pretty good to me. Everyone agree on it? @bcmurphy87 are you going to jump on the caravan this year? anyone else feel free to post if you're coming from florida or anywhere along the way.

Idk, usually google maps is pretty spot on when it comes to guestimating the time. and 11 hrs vs 9.5 is a pretty big difference after driving alll day. lol

Google maps also goes by the speed limit, which I guarantee we won't do. Specifically on the skyway lol. I always beat google maps time. ;)

Speed helps but making up an hour and a half is a big deal.

Yeah, personally I vote for the shorter route. If we get in early and unpack we can go for a night run

It doesn't really matter to me, its just cool because we could take the Skyway into town, which keep in mind the speed limit is low on that road thus the higher drive time. But we'll probably be hauling ass on it.

Drive on carrot time. Make your own speed limit.
Cop pulls you over and asks if you know how fast you were going, you say "yes, I just didn't see you"

Like a boss.

You pack it right and it won't thrash around. ;)

I won't be leaving for Epic until Friday morning... thus far I think the only Georgians will be Chris and I which is slightly annoying, everyone is being a puss over it and will say they may drive up that Saturday but I doubt it.
