What time would you suggest leaving Nashville Thursday morning to make it to the church by 9? 7:30? I read last year's thread and saw a lot of discussion of traffic but not an obvious answer on how long it would take.
We ended up canceling our reservation at opryland to stay in murfreesboro to avoid the headache of morning traffic. I would def give yourself 1.5 hours, jic.
Our adventure begins tomorrow !! On the road at 6am - wondering what mystical state we will end up spending our first night in!! See you soon!
You are so lucky! velmz and I both have to work tomorrow then Tuesday AM I'll pick up the rental, wreck it a little bit to consummate the sanctity of renters insurance, then pack it tight! We will head out Wednesday morning at 2 AM, staying in Antioch.
If you guys have time and are near the great lakes, go to cedar point and ride the millennium force :-D that's America at its best worst and people-watchiest.

We live in the nations capital city of Ottawa, home to the Senators NHL team and the most moderately attractive Canadians.
Dropping off our eldest daughter inToronto before we cross over, then planning on taking the Detroit route on the way down to the Farm, then coming back home through Pennsylvania and so on, hoping to visit NYC possibly. We are pretty adventurous, could end up anywhere during this 2 week adventure.
Thank you for the Millenium Force recommendation, sounds exactly the kind of stop we are looking for!
Ya if you like roller coasters Cedar Point is the place to go. Also if your going to Detroit during a time when you're going to need some food - ill PM you the best restaurants depending on what you're looking for, we are from there originally and back there all the time.
Have a great time we'll see you on the farm in a few days.

what's up folks? I'm hitting up bonnaroo, vip but solo this year. Catching a ride from Atlanta with some girls i grew up with but they have GA passes. Been lurking this thread and you folks setup sounds super legit. Was trying to avoid lugging my tent, air mattress, chair, cooler and canopy tent from their GA site to the vip area and was wondering if my friends were to drop me off at the church where y'all are meeting up, would it be possible to hitch a ride into bonnaroo (through vip) with one of you folks?
Awesome! Thank you ! GPS is predicting our arrival time will be 530, checking in to the hotel and then we are planning to scout the surroundings. Great to know there's a party happening!
There is another group of people meeting at Beyond the Edge in East Nashville at 10pm also
Yup bennyandthejess. DreamingTree will be at the first (more conveniently located) meetup, but there will be a few VIPers at the second one too (me, MikeD, Tronik, Bunny among a bunch of other people). My flight doesn't land until 9:30.

Thank you, bonzai!!! Will be a dream come true for us being in Nashville!!! Not sure how far our hotel (Sheraton) is from the gatherings but we hope to be there! Going to 'scout' the area after we check-in, was a nightmare sleep last night at the historic Ft. Mitchell Super 8 outside Cinci haha need some pain relief.
