We will Boyd, but we'll be thinking of you guys at the same time. We'll try to keep you in the loop with photos and commentary.

We had dinner at the Long Horn Steak house just a hop skip & a jump from the hotel. Then went to Cuyahoga Falls, waterfall. Came home (also called the hotel) and googled Brandywine Falls for the morning hike. Kind of in the wrong direction, but only by 13 miles.

Illinois Highways are so so. = Construction
Indiana Highways are so so = Construction
Ohio Highways are so so. = Construction
But the streets in Cuyahoga Falls I'm guessing are more like the Roads Mike & Margie were on :cry: Could use Construction :idea:

48 MPG

397 Miles in 7.5 hours (make that 8.5 hours as there was a time change) Old people have to make regular stops. :wink:

219 Miles in 3 hours 50 minutes + the required road trip stops and Brandywine Falls left

Daryl and I will be leaving tomorrow morning and hopefully will be at the track around noon? Sorry if you've already said but where is supper planned for tomorrow night?
Can't wait to see you all! And Boyd, again this year it won't be the same without you and the Mrs. We'll miss you!!!

Looks like we’ll be camping in the parking lot next to the entrance. Got here a tad early. That’s what we get for taking our time.

Hi, everyone. Had a fun first-night meeting at the hotel bar here in Greensburg, PA. Tomorrow is an early breakfast and then the Flight 93 memorial followed by Frank Lloyd Wright's Fallingwater house. We will meet back here after that. Talked to Bret Kepner on the phone and we should see him tomorrow night as well. Missing all our friends who could not come and looking forward to seeing our friends we have not seen yet! bp

Is there a designated parking area for us? We are right down the street, can anyone give me an idea what time we should get to the track?
