    Chicago Crew MUDBUG Proposed Travel Itinerary

    Its roughly 1000 miles to Morgan City from Chicago area, and Google maps says thats 15 hours with no breaks. Last year we got there in just over 16 hours, including stopping for gas and breakfast with others. Coming BACK we only stopped for gas and made it in 14 hours…SO, given proper stops for gas and food, AND REST, we can knock it out in 15 hours total DRIVING…


    Mudbug is a Thursday/Friday/Saturday/Sunday event, with a majority of people showing up Thursday afternoon and leaving Sunday morning…All the nights are crazy, with awards Saturday night ...

    I suggest we leave on Wednesday…HIGH NOON (or BEFORE) and take our time, allow ourselves 24 hours to get there…Plan to arrive and launch our ski’s at HIGH NOON on Thursday…

    We can't check in the hotel until roughly after 3pm, so why not ride right away...The next 72 hours will be a blur of people, partying, and riding….and no sleep!


    ************************
    GOAL = Drive 700 miles in 10-11 hours…SLEEP…Drive the last 300 the next day…
    ************************

    Wednesday, June 11th
    - Departure time 9AM, OR BEFORE...heading SOUTH down I-57...For the next 10 hours/700 miles, we drive…
    - Arrive in Jackson, Mississippi area sometime after 7-8pm…Rest, get together for a group dinner, then hotel it the night

    Thursday, June 12th
    - Leave Jackson, Mississippi area sometime around 8-9am (or before). Its just under 250 miles to Morgan City, and I think we can easily knock that out in 3 hours…
    - Head straight to the launch ramp, ride straight to Gro’s for a Cherry Bomb
    - Pull out sometime before it gets dark, go check in…

    Thursday night – Sunday morning = WHATEVER , as long as the sun is up we ride!!!

    Sunday, June 15th
    - Leave Morgan City by 12pm, or before…
    - Drive 450 miles to MEMPHIS, TN area, stay at a hotel and rest up…
    * Maybe all go to Group Dinner someplace, talk about the event, chill...

    Monday, June 16th
    - Leave hotel around 8-9am, and drive remaining mile back home…


    Again, this is just a PROPOSED driving plan. If we can get a crew together and travel like that, the drive will be okay and we can CERTAINLY enjoy the most of Mudbug 08’…..all rested up too!

    Sunday sounds perfect ! We are thinking about leaving early AM (6:00 am)on Weds though. We may even try and drive the whole thing on Weds and sleep in on Thursday.

    From Wichita will leave Wed am about 8-9 or so and travel south to Dallas then east to Shrevport then back south again. Will stay overnight somewhere near Natichotes (sp) or alexandria. Up at 8- or so and on the water by noon.
    Check in that night and ride the rest of the time.
    Leave Sunday early non stop all the way 850 miles be home that evening. Unless decide to stay for a while and rid somemore Sunday and make the trip a two day return.

    I thought this was a given! I know I snore a lot when I drink, I used to have the bruises to prove until she kicked me into the guest bedroom! I will probably only get 3 hour naps in this time. I will miss XXX pounding on my door and given me that look that he is going to kick my arse if I don't get going!
