Got a room at the Courtyard by Marriott. It wasn't really bad for last minute. The room rate was $139.00 with a king bed and a sleeper sofa. We are bringing my son Jacob, he was at Chevellabration last year and loved it. So I figure for the 3 of us the price isn't bad and bonus it is a lot closer than some of the other hotels that actually had rooms. Is something else going on that weekend ?

Bonnaroo Music Festival (June 7th - 10th) draws people from around the country and creates all sorts of traffic if you come through at the wrong time.

Oh no, not Bonaroo.... So I guess our 8 hour drive will now be 10-12. We plan on leaving early Sat. morning, but that puts us near Goodletsville, if all goes well, around 12. Let's just hope that all the Bonaroo'ers are already there. I know last year we were there early and only saw a few cars on the road. I bought a new GPS yesterday, so I hope it helps us avoid traffic.

I think Bonnaroo only affects those coming from the South as you pass it on the way north to the Park.

Could be wrong though and am feeling too lazy to google the map.

We come from the north and saw probably about 20 cars last year, but we were there early. Been keeping up with Mark, from the Ohio Club, He should be in Goodletsville by now.

I have been wondering if my registration made it there on time. I have been watching the P.O. Box to see if my check was returned. I didn't want to bother Chuck, I figured he had enough going on this week. Well I got my answer today. We to the P.O. Box, and there it was. A postcard stating that my registration number was in the 180's. Does that mean that there are about 180-200 cars registered ? Do you know flash ?

180 isn't as bad as it was seeming initially but still quite low! Speaking of, where the heck did I place that little blue card???? Probably would have forgot it at home had I not read this!

Glad to be of some help. Eric, I will be hanging out with the guys from the Ohio Club. Mark has been kind enough to offer me some space for my chairs under his canopy. I will probably wear a Woodward Dream Cruise, or Detroit Dragway shirt. So hopefully we will be able to find each other. Or just look for flash and his Mrs. they are usually selling the raffle tickets and they would be able to tell you where I am.
