I'm looking for some help and would appreciate some suggestions from you guys - I'm about to come to the US for a couple of weeks holiday and am looking to squeeze in as many comps as possible.

Jellico:
I am currently arriving in Nashville in the evening Wednesday 2 July and need to be back there Monday night.
Need to work out how to get to the event - am I best to hire a car? Also where to stay?

Hannibal:
Arriving St Louis 4:30pm on Friday 11 July and departing 11:30am Sunday 12 July, again any suggestions on transport / accomodation?

Donner:
Arriving Reno 3pm Friday 18 July, dept lunchtime monday.
Have sent an email to the lodge reccomended in the thread in this forum, so probably will stay there. Need to get from Reno to the site.

So if anyone is going to these events and has a spare seat or any spare accom i'd be really keen to hear from you - obviously i'd pay my way and would definately return favours when you guys come down to visit us should the Worlds happen down under. As I'm travelling alone looking to minimise the cost of hiring cars for just one person

Thanks
Ben

If you want you can stay with us in our RV and Trailer at Hannibal you're more than welcome, we'll have plenty of room. Also our team cook will be making the trip so there will be lots of good eats. We're not going threw Nashville so we would not be able to pick you up though. Let me know if you're interested.

You're more than welcome to crash in our trailer at Donner. I'm sure we could feed you and we're always looking for another team member.
Sounds awesome!

You need to book a room in Jellico.
Which one of these is best or is there a W.E.Rock reccomended place?
Will definately catch up for a beer over the weekend.


Are you interested in driving a Pro-Mod at Donner?
Hell yes - PM sent!

I'm sure we have some common friends if you know any of those blokes that came up for Worlds in '06 :flipoff2:

Regardless, look me up

Thanks guys,
Unfortunately my flights are hard to change ($$$) so I am stuck with flying out Sunday, but I don't see why I couldn't stay and party Saturday night...

Anyone know if the Jellico Motel has email / website? I have googled but no luck... otherwise i will call them tomorrow

Here's some info on the Jellico Motel:

3. Jellico Motel (423) 784-7211
181 Douglas Lane
Jellico, TN 37762
Website: http://jellicomotel.bravehost.com/index.html
Check In: 2:00 p.m. Check Out: 11:00 a.m
Trailer Friendly Small Pets Allowed
All rooms are equipped with Cable Television with Cinemax; air conditioning; 24-hour front desk; no smoking rooms; free parking; outdoor pool; restaurant. Very convenient to I-75.

I wish that us locals could get you to and from the event, but the from part would be a problem, with Rrock on Sunday. If you can score a ride back to the airport, I'm sure we can get you to Hannibal.

Not soon enough, i'd love to get back over there and do some more travelling around but a serious lack of coin is preventing any suck trips.I had a blast while we were in the states with you guys and would kill to catch up with all you guys again, i'd love the chance to compete against you all again aswell and hopefully settles some scores :flipoff2:
