    Careful across I-10 between Beaumont and through LA. Last time we were down there a few years ago, the road was rough at best. I won't even bother preaching to you about I-10 through Houston. :)

    I don't leave until the 1st of March. I may need a place to crash the first couple days. My reservation doesn't begin until the 5th.
    I'll be coming from Rapid City, South Dakota. Unsure about my route as I will not know the road conditions until we get closer to that time frame. Hopefully I have decent weather leaving this area.

    Wnen do estimate that you will hit the area? I may be able to help you depending on what day you get there. I'll be in Davenport about 85-90 miles SWof Daytona.(South of I4 right off rt 27)We will be leaving Davenport Monday and hope to return Tuesday night.
    Regarding weather, I know it can and often does change ina heartbeat. I have been looking ahead myself by going to accuweather.com (weather.com is ok too, only forecasts 10 daysbut accu goes out to 15 daysforecasting) plugging in major cities along my route and then looking at the 15 day forecast to get an idea as to the forecast as of now. Just a thought.

    I just got back from Daytona. A whirlwind two night only trip.
    The launch of the X-1 was cool. I understand that for the first time ever that Main street had to be closed due to the amount of people in attendance.
