    It would be cool. But, I'm heading straight to the Hotel, not Dane's. Maybe those of us staying at the hotel can ride over to Dane's together?

    ^ Good idea Ryan. We're headed to get Horney (Justin) and then to the hotel. Going to find a carwash, a liquor store (if time allows) then hit Dane's around 5:00

    Sounds about like my plans. I'm bringing some waterless car wash and plan on cleaning the car up in the hotel parking lot. It can do 5-6 cars (it says) and you and anyone else is free to use it if you want. Also, I wonder if the hotel has a water spigot, I'll bring a hose! Then cleaning myself up, then it should be about time to head to Dane's. Btw, what liquor are you planning on picking up? I don't want to drink too much so I'd be happy throw in on a bottle of something if you'll share.

    I'm not really sure if I want beer or if I'm going all in. If its liquor (which it most likely will be) then Vodka or Rum with a Calorie Free mixer is most likely my choice, so which ever you prefer. I have very very limited space in the 135 as the trunk is teeeny tiny, and I'm trying to pack lightly and then stop for booze and things when I get there. Horney gets the backseat for him and his gear, and he's tallll, this will be interesting. I don't mind sitting in my own back seat if I have to. I will take you up on the waterless car wash though, not having luck finding a do-it-yourself car wash near the hotel.

    I prefer Vodka, personally, but Rum's fine too. Either way it's not a big deal. We can work it out at the Hotel.

    Justin in the back seat of a 135!?!? Take pictures! I've sat in the back of a 135 and was "ok", but Kyle, who is ~5'7" was cramped.

    There is a new carwash around the corner from Danes, google map- colonial carwash.
    I like Captain Morgans if you two would want to go in thirds on that, and I would also pick it up as a bonus.
