West Cruise After The Rally

Unread post by Mike » Wed Apr 03, 2013 9:43 am

Alright, I mentioned this last year, but I am starting to lock down details.

After the rally, there will be a cruise back to west. For those that need to go that way anyway, you should join. All welcome. Last year a few of us did this and it was awesome; great way to extend the rally. Here is the plan so far:
  • -Leave Friday Morning from Saint John, head northwest through Canada to avoid having to cross the border twice again (7 hour day roughly)
    -Arrive in most likely the Quebec City, Quebec area for the night.
    -Party Friday Night
    -Leave Saturday morning and drive to Toronto (roughly 7 hour day)
    -Party Saturday night
    -Sunday there are two options.
    - -(1) Leave and continue on your way home.
    - -(2) Attend the Toronto Blue Jays vs Houston Astros with a group of us.
It is a 1PM game so even when it ends at 4PM people could still easily drive to Detroit or Pitt that night.


If interested, let me know here. So far it is Curt/Amy and Team Canada, but I am sure the Noblesville crew will be in.

We should be game for the as well.

Might wanna suggest a bit farther out of Quebec as it might be a bit cheaper too Trois-Rivieres maybe. But either way is cool.

We gotta be back in TO for Sat noonish. Farshad needs to be back for a wedding.

Nick and I are out. We have to do the 1000 mile drive back to Pittsburgh on Friday for a Cabrewing event he's hosting Saturday morning. Last year we did 800 miles in a day and had to stop, we are going to try and make it all the way this year!!

Tempting... but I'll be leaving that up to my navigator/son since Thursday will be his 25th birthday and he might have plans with friends back home.

I think we'll tag along until at least Quebec, that wont put us out of the way much at all plus extends the trip a day

Team Tallahassee will unfortunately not be able to participate in the fun, I have to be back to work on Monday July 29 which means we'll have to cover 1800+ miles in 3 days.

Have fun those who are doing it!

Mike, are you going to get us all in one hotel or do you just want us each to choose a hotel in each city and book it? How about the baseball game? Do you have a way to buy seats together or do you want us each to buy our own?
