Early, but I wanted to pub the Cincy crew’s rally. It is Mar 28th-30th in Cincinnati. WKRP 2008. Register at http://www.wkrp.tenyearlates.com/
I’m eyeing the “making sleep” hotel. This rally is good for us Columbus people, because it’s so close. Driving in a car takes about 1.5 hours. Seems like taking backroads it would still only take you at most 4 hours, with stops. Not for a newbie, but if you do some rest stops it seems totally doable. Hopefully the late March weather (almost April) will be good.
