Nice suggestions. A few comments from Corvette caravans.

1. The Family Radio Systems two-way radios are inexpensive and do a good job of keeping people in touch.

2. Keeping to the speed limit is a good idea. I remember a Chicago highway trip on the way to Road America where the lead car was doing about 80 and trailers were hitting speeds of 100+ trying to catch up after tollbooths.

3. If you have enough people, you can divide into two groups. One who wants to see the sights and the others who are into high speeds.

I absolutely refuse to believe this.

excellent post!!!! the point about gas and atm's are sooo true.

im miltary and most of the guys i run with are too we usually do all the things posted as well as a few other.

everyone carried a tool bag- that way someone might have a tool you forgot
make strip maps- sometimes you have people from different areas with you that might not know their way around
two way radios- already discussed
a "FO" or Forward observer- usually leaves 20 minutes before rollout time to alert the convoy on, traffic, cops, accidents whatever. usually someone from the area that know it well.

something i've usually done is made everyone responsible for the person behind them. it helps manage pace and can also keep those uncertain/unsure about the route with the rest of the group.

and i 100% agree with going through the manual tollbooths with everyone else.

I drive a company vehicle for work, and we sometimes swarm on rides to various locations. So, here's another tip to keep everyone together.

Lane Change Technique
- First car signals the lane change, but does not switch lanes yet.
- Car(s) behind then also signal the lane change and passes the "message" down until it reaches the very last car
- Last car changes lane FIRST when permitted and stays behind to allow everyone in front to change lanes also
- Once the last car is in place, one by one, everyone changes over all the way back to the head of the pack.

This will allow the group to safely switch lanes without any break in the system. It also looks pretty BA when executed properly. Practice makes perfect.

I'll just say this.. walkie talkies definitely help.. and they work for when you are out of the car as well.

I will say that buying FRS radios was about the best thing I've ever done for multi-car trips. So much more fun.

Yes radios. Not for every car, I do front and back car and then 1-2 in the middleish to take charge when the group gets split up

Firefighters who drive the big trucks with the tillys do this to change lanes, it looks freaking badass, trailer moves over and the truck "closes the gap" as they call it.
