I'm leaving from Durham wednesday evening...driving to Walmart in Tennessee. I've got two extra tickets for sale...$225 each.
I've got a small truck and enough room for one more...two more if someone wants to ride in the half cab. I'm a light packer so there'll be plenty of room in the bed...split the gas and you gotta free ride!
Gonna try my damned-ess to drive home in time for work on Monday...might not make it though...probably crash for a couple of hours in a parking lot if I get sleepy.
I'm leaving Kernersville late on Wednesday. We'd thought about leaving Thursday morning but would rather put the tent up when the gates open instead of in the heat of the day. We're going to try to do Tent Only so hopefully we don't have too far to walk!

Headed from Charlotte to Manchester Wed. afternoon. ATLANTA is def. the way to go. you actually never really get into Atlanta, hitting the bypass north of the city. Driving through Asheville, IE up the mountain and back down with any sort of RV or camper is not the way to go. Now...if you're driving a normal car....it might be a toss-up....but keep in mind if you try to go through Asheville in the early morning...there's a good chance you're going to run into fog on both sides of the mountain slowing down traffic. Hope this helps.....

We're heading from Winston-Salem to just past Asheville on Wed afternoon and getting an early start Thur am from there. I40 though the mountains is no big deal, just dial down the speed when you cross over into TN, the Mounties know we're coming...

I'd be down, except that I will be in Knoxville for the Phish show wed. night... What were your plans? You should come on by for the Knoxville show and throw down an additional night. Other than that I would be coming and going from Asheville.

yeah that's the one that avoids the mountains and goes towards the ATL. i've only taken that way home in the past, and i think it was around 5.5-6 hours? the haze that is monday after roo is clouding my actual time perception. i've done 26 to 40 before to meet friends from all over the east in cookeville the night before...but that just seems out of the way if you're going straight there.
if you're going RV...i would 100% go 85-75-24...26 and 40 would be a bitch getting out of NC
