whole list event.

Who knows? But it might surprise you how many will.

Thats is why the "route" idea won't work it needs to be a PLACE where we can
meet up. If some people want to do a "route" to the place (Indy) thats great.
What we need to do is have a few people do the planning, once the interest in
the event is shown, and inform the group of the details as it goes along, thus
keeping the list traffic to a minimum. I have volunteered my time, as Eric
has of his time, and others as well. If people want to do this I will help,
if not then I have other things to do. But, this could be a great trip!
Let the List-members speak.
