I just got back for a 4,700 mile cross country trip with 90 hours of driving. I think I will plan on being there with my M1078 next year.Take a civi vehicle. While I have been to this rally many times I have only taken MV trailers with the Winged Dodge. It's about the people, friends and family.
Not sure how many rooms are left but I checked on costs the week it was announced for a hotel room but waited a week to decide. They had already gone up.
