    Trying to start the planning early to get everything locked down in hopes of a better turnout this year. First off I just wanted to get an idea of how far everyone would be willing to drive to make an event.

    600 miles in 12 hours, you need to drive faster LOL

    I'm good out to 13-14 If I can add a couple more days and it looks like a good meet I'll stretch it out a little further also.

    You driving straight through 12 hrs? It's more like 600 miles in 10hrs of driving when you work in the rest stops and meals.

    Everyone please vote in the poll

    I can drive my tractor trailer 600 miles and still be legal with my log book. I do Guelph, Ontario to just before Atlanta , Ga ( 800 miles) in the XR.

    I drove strait back from MD last year only stopping for gas. ~800 miles I think I did it in around 13.5 hours. Can't say it was fun the last couple hundred miles either.

    I'm with G on this. If there was promise of a good turn out, I'd make the drive. Pending time off.

    I'd drive a ways, but then again, if it isn't in FL it's gonna be a day's drive for me regardless!
    I've also been known to take a 16,000 mile motorcycle trip just for fun, so it's obvious that I'm not known for my Sanity!
    My longest day was just over 1000 miles, have also done 830, and 760 mile days on a bike so a grand in a pickup shouldn't be too bad....

    I would put in about 500 miles or so. I am pretty central to just about everywhere so its a bit of a non issue for me.

    Any state that surrounds FL. Other than that too much for a weekend.

    With the last few X-fest east events being further north, and the Va Beach crew hosting a meet this spring we are looking to move further south this year. If anyone wants to throw out some suggestions I'm open to them.

    Myrtle beach is cool, but its not going to be on the coast. That's just way too far of a drive for me.
