I am establishing the details for the cruise from RI/SE MA to the Wicked Big Meet early enough that way we can plan and add as many members as possible. To keep an accurate head count, please add your name to the manifest. You can also RSVP on the Facebook event page.

Everyone will be following these rules for the caravan. We don't want any attention from the Police, and we want everyone to have a fun, safe ride to WBM. Please arrive as early as you can so we can discuss the caravan, and the best way to stay with the pack and follow the leader.
CARAVAN RULES - PLEASE READ

Description

June 9, 2013

Anyone who is attending the Wicked Big Meet and coming from the RI/SE MA/CT area is welcome to join. Looking to get as many cars as possible for an epic cruise.

We will meet up at Ruby Tuesday's in Johnston, RI (1386 Atwood Ave) and leaving at 9:30 am sharp. (I would plan on being here no later than 9:00am and no earlier than 8:45 am)
*time of departure is subject to change*

If all goes as planned, we should arrive at WBM for 11:00 am. The lines to get in are long so this way we will be able to ease in with no issues!


** This is a caravan/cruise and safety is the utmost concern. No ricer fly by's or wreckless driving. Be mindful of the car in front of you as well as the car behind you. The primary objective to stay together and enjoy the cruise in!

Hope to see you all there!

Look about halfway down in NESIC. Read the thread. There might be ideas as to why its locked in there.

Caravan threads are not welcomed until about a month before the event date. Wait till may, then proceed. Haha

I've never understood why caravan threads get locked. What is the logic behind this decision? NESIC doesn't run WBM, and as far as I'm concerned, the more time to plan something, the better.

With so much time, threads will go a few days without posts, pushing them off the first page(s) and then someone who thinks they're a genius will start a new thread with the epic idea of a caravan to WBM.

This was the logic I had when I started this thread. I figured the more time we had to plan, the better. I guess cause others don't know how to search, we suffer.

I'm in mendon and my route is 495, 90, 84, 190. I believe RI is 146 to 90 so we could meet up there or I could drive the wrong way for 30m and meet with the attleboro peoples.
I assume we would rather go by highway?

Highway no fun. Taking the back roads the past couple years has been great. The caravan has left Ruby Tuesday's in Johnston, RI and taken Route 6 to 101 to 44 to 74 to 32 on the way to Stafford Springs. Attleboro and Johnston is out of your way, but it would definitely be worth it to meet up with us for the ride.

Back roads are fine by me, last few convoys I was in did most of the trip by highway to keep the group from getting seperated. Back roads from my place 16 197 190, unfortunately our paths won't cross if I go my way.

Unfortunately, these things do happen.

The other reason why caravan threads aren't "allowed" until close to the event, is because they start turning into a conversation rather than planning, and get too big for their britches. Honestly, to plan a caravan:

Set rally point.
Set arrival time.
Set Departure time.

That's about it. If you're meeting up with other people or other groups along the way, just back track durations from what time you want/expect to arrive at the event, and allow ~20 minutes at each pick-up point.

What?! Count me out then

You know I'm down to hit the backroads there instead of the highway the whole way Josh so if this thread gets shut down just keep me posted with info

I hope you're entering the STi into the AutoX event?! Don't leave me hangin' FOL! I already bought my tickets and very much anticipating this event.
