Georgia Caravan to Thunder In The Ozarks

We are planning on leaving the Atlanta area and going to the Tupelo Auto Museum on the way to Rogers Arkansas. On March 22, we will probably stay at the Holiday Inn express in New Albany which is about 20 miles past Tupelo. From there it is about 7 hrs. to Rogers.

Please reply in this thread if you want to join the caravan and we'll set firm times, where and when to meet and also set reservations at the hotel and museum.

I made arrangements at the museum. Group rate is $8.00, but we will need 10 minimum. If not the rate is $9.00. I told them we'll arrive in the afternoon and they will have a tour guide for us.

Hotel:
Holiday Inn Express New Albany
300 Hwy 30 W,
New Albany, MS 38652

Phone: (662) 534-8870

You must phone in for your reservation and use the code TBN to get the special rate. $85.00 for a King, $87.00 for a Double.


Confirmed:

David & Jeannie
Steve & Donna
Spence & Judy
Ray & Sharon
Tom & Richard
Bob & Virginia

Re: Georgia Caravan to Thunder In The Ozarks

We won't be able to join your caravan to the Ozarks. We are leaving early, going thru Conway for a nite, then on to Branson Missouri, spending a nite in Eureka Springs. Will see you in Rogers.

Re: Georgia Caravan to Thunder In The Ozarks

I suggest the group first meet at Cracker Barrel Exit 11 on I-20. The address is:
106 Price Creek Rd
I-20 & US 27 (Exit 11)
Bremen, GA 30110-2551

Let's meet there at 9:30 EST, have breakfast then take the 4 hr. drive to the Museum. We should arrive at the museum around 2:00 CST.

My number is 615-566-1975 if there are any problems.

Re: Georgia Caravan to Thunder In The Ozarks

We will be getting there before 9:30 am. If we leave home to be there at that time we will be in the dead traffic on I-575, I-75 and I-285. There are times of the day that you do not want to be on these roads. All 6 lanes on I-75 will be standing still and going nowhere. We will see you all when you get there.

Re: Georgia Caravan to Thunder In The Ozarks

Most of us enjoy fun roads, so I would suggest you guys experience the Pig Trail Scenic Byway on your way to Rogers.

At Exit 35 on I-40 in western Arkansas go north on Arkansas 23 (affectionately know as the Pig Trail). On the right a little over 11.5 miles from where you exit of I-40 you'll find the Turner Bend Store. The store has a variety of Pig Trail souvenirs including hat pins. AR-23 will connect with Arkansas 16 which you'll take west until you are able to hook up with I-49 in Fayetteville.

I'd only recommend this route if the weather is nice. It's a little slow and curvy to be much fun when the pavement is wet.

Re: Georgia Caravan to Thunder In The Ozarks

Thanks Paul. I'm thinking of doing that in reverse as the day Friday is probably going to be an 8 - 9 hour drive from Tupelo to Rogers. Since we will have to break up the return trip, there will be more time to enjoy that route heading home.

We still have to pick a stop-over on the return, but that, we can play by ear depending on time of day, weather and stops.

Dave,
Bob and Virginia are going to catch up with Tom and myself sometime tomorrow, maybe as early as lunch around Tallahassee. The four of us will stay in Montgomery, Alabama. Then we will head out together on Wednesday for an easy drive of 225 miles and see you all at the museum.
