Anyone looking to carpool to E-Fest?

I thought it might be a good idea to have a thread where people might be able to find a fellow RCG'er to carpool to E-Fest with.

I would like to go if I could find one or possibly two people to drive with me and split the costs. I'm located in south central Pennsylvania (close to the MD/PA line) and it looks like it's about a 12hr drive.

If I can find one person, I have plenty of space in my explorer for bringing planes along and we could split a hotel room. If there are two people that would want to go, I could bring my travel trailer. Lots of room in there for planes and there's a full service RV park about 7 miles away from E-Fest.

With the drive time, I'd like to leave early Friday morning (Feb 10) and get on the road home early Monday morning (Feb 13).

Zeke, I'm in North Jersey. I've done the drive from here to Champaign and back about five times in the last year. All my stuff is ParkZone, Flyzone and a really nice laser cut Cessna 182 someone kits. I don't need a hotel room since my fiance lives in Champaign. This sounds interesting. When would you be leaving? Just need to see if work will let me have it off.

I'm contemplating going if anyone else is driving down from Chicago. I don't have many small indoor planes but I might throw a couple together just for the event.

I don't think I'm going after all. I only have one plane that's even small enough to fly indoors and I'm not a member of AMA... so it seems like a lot of expense for the effort.

If I'm not mistaken there will probably be reps from AMA there that could get you joined up and I know there are several vendors that would love to fix you up with something to fly. Even if you didn't fly it's a great place to hang out for the weekend.
