carpool to SSS 09

ok i have room in my rig for 5 people comfortably or more if you want to squeeze in. im taking my low pro freightliner down and hauling my 02 on my flatbed... i would say we could fit about 7 people total inside if you really wanted... there is 2 seats in the front of the truck with a sleeper in the back. the sleeper has a couch in it that will fit 3 large adults or 4 smaller people. if somone wanted to sit on the floor that is also fine as there is also room to do that... i have had 18 people in it before (long story) but everyone was sitting ontop of eachother and we only went for an hour ride...

my plan is to leave thrusday morning from mid michigan at about 6:00 AM. i plan on comming back on monday, i hope to leave Scotts place around 8 AM or such and drive home... i dont have room for another truck unless someone has a larger trailer, if so i can haul it.

so far this is who is riding along...

Me
Rick (my friend who is riding down and comming back on his own so his spot will be empty on the way back)
Jake
GM Duratard

here is the route im going to take...

Driving Directions from Durand, MI to 12644 Old Us Highway 52, Winston Salem, NC

let me know if you want to ride along as fuel will be split up between everyone...

i plan on sleeping in the truck unless the people going want to split a room, i would be interested, let me know

also the people who want to go with me PM me your number so i can contact you on the way and let me know if we want to only have 5 people or if we want to have 7....

the first people that post to this will have first choice, you need to be 100% sure you are gonna go.

Don't know how i would take my truck unless we drove down separate, which is always an option but it would cost us more unless someone else wants to go that we don't have room for in the freightliner. Of course people could always ride in the truck on the trailer.
