VA-DC Area to Carlisle- April 25

I will be driving up in a XC-60 on Saturday 25 April and plan to leave Manassas around 8AM to take the White's Ferry (Jubal Early) ferry over from VA to MD side . (Only operating ferry across the Potomac) <p>Plan to get a picture of the XC-60 on the Ferry. Need some other Volvoers<p>Google "White Ferry" for info.<p>

Re: VA-DC Area to Carlisle- April 25 (240_XC90)

We usually leave extremely early on Saturday to go up and I was just about to start a thread to see who wants to get a caravan going. I leave Manassas/Bristow around 4am and head in toward DC on route 66, heading up 495/270 through MD. Its a great way to meet up with folks along the way. Maybe we could set up a few points in VA and MD to have people meet and join up for the drive. The gates open at 7am and it takes a little over 2 hours from Bristow to get up there. That puts us in carlisle at a good enough time to ensure that we end up in the Volvo section for the show and gives us time to re-clean our cars from the trip.

How would I get into the Volvo Section and does being there restrict when you can leave. I've only been to the show one time and I had to park off site.<p>

You can drive off the show field at any point.

I think you may have to join us somewhere on 270. I'll start doing some research on a place to meet up unless you can suggest a spot that would be good for yourself and others as well.

Seems like most will be taking rt 70E to 695 (to towson) to 83N correct? In that case we should meet at the park and ride that is right before the crossover from 70W to 695N, it's a left hand exit.

Re: (feldman)

Guys, I think the Va people are going to head up a different way this year. I just realized that we are going 30-40 miles out of the way to meet up with the folks in Maryland and DC. We may need to split up and meet when we get there.

I think the perfect location would be the Max S Kehne Memorial Park. It is right off 15N, take exit 7th ST exit, and straight ahead, the park is right across the street.

I would like to be up there by 8am to get in the right section and have a few minutes to get the car cleaned back up. Would 6:30 be too early for you guys? We could stop off for breakfast some where along the way after we meet up. I know Nick will be hungry for sure!!!! <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/wink.gif" BORDER="0"> <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/biggrin.gif" BORDER="0">
