    Thumbs up South Carolina Convoy...

    Is anyone interested in convoying from South Carolina to the Mudbug? We will be leaving early Thursday morning coming down I-85 South through Atlanta. 710 mile drives for us.

    Please PM me if anyone is interested.

    Thanks, Jim

    I'm coming from Charlotte. How early are you leaving? I was planning on leaving 4am Thursday morning from here. I could have an empty space on the trailer if someone wants to go halves on fuel. I would probably hit Greenville at 6am. Might want to start earlier and get through Atlanta before morning rush hours.

    Be careful wtih mapquest !!!/ !

    Mapquest is saying that it's quicker to go strait through birmingham and to Meridian, MS --- then down to Laurel, Hattiesburg, Slidelll, LA........

    It's quicker to go Birmingham to Montgomery to Mobile on I-65 South going through Mobile, AL the n across on I-10......


    I have tested each way becasue this is my Dealer Territory and Mapquest is wrong!!!


    From the I-459 / I-65 Junction (in birmingham) driving at 75 mph ---- it's 6 and 1/2 hours to Morgan City from that point (going through Meridian and Hattiesburg, MS) on I-20 / I-59.


    From the I-459 Junction with I-65 in Birmingham (going through Mobile to Morgan City) is 5 hours and 50 minutes with 2 stops for gas in between.


    If any of you get to Birmingham in your travels, go south on I-65 all the way to Mobile then across on I-10 through New Orleans. It is faster and i have tested this 4 times now with my job and the traveling that i do.

    Yeah use GPS

    I have noticed some inconsistancies with Mapquest. Once I got
    my Tom Tom GPS I never use 'em. Just key in destination and that
    great gizmo takes over. Plus you have all those good running countdowns
    to end of trip, next turn, speed, etc. Found out my BMW's speedo
    is off by 4/5 mph at 75mph. I have option 18" wheels and the German boys
    didn't recalibrate speedo!

    NCHEEL... Kristy and I was thinking about getting through Atlanta before rush hour also. I was downtown Atlanta a couple weeks ago on business and it took me @ 3 hours with no rush hour traffic. We would like to convoy with you if you would like to. We live near the airport exit off I-85 (exit 56) in Greenville. We have 2 Ultras, so we have to pull our own trailer. Do you know of anyone else from Charlotte that is going? If you would like to leave earlier, that would be fine with us. Let me know if this sounds like something you would like to do.

    Thanks, Jim
