So we have quite a few people interested in a convoy from ontario and western new york it seems.

I can't say I've ever planned a convoy before, but it seems like we should figure out where everyone is, and where people are clustered we should find a truckstop or something where we'll all meet up. Say, one in Hamilton or wherever in Ontario and one in Buffalo, and one somewhere closer to Skippyville.

I'm trying to get a frappr map going, but the site is being a bit of a pravneet. If anyone can get one working, that'd be great.

Frappr is a bitch lately. I'm on Grand Island (that big island thing between the falls and buffalo)

in milton, pretty much right in the middle of everything. i'll only make it if i can get a few days off but i am not sure what summer will be like.

i like googlemaps even though no one else does

in Niagara Falls. I think we should meet at Big Jim's Truck Stop in Cheektowaga. There's an HUGE parking lot next to it and it's ideal for staging a large Panther convoy. I'll have to leave it up to you Canadian mangs to organize the convoy til you get to Jim's. We should be good after that.

Cheektowaga sounds good. That should accomodate most of the niagara falls, Tonawonda, and Buffalo guys. We'll see if there's anyone south of that enough to make another full convoy stop worthewhile.

You have to distribute CDs with the theme to 'Convoy' on it for this to have any chance at success.

GO 190 to 219 to 20a past warsaw to i390 to I86 to 15 to I180 to I80 to route 42 to 54 to 901 than I81 for 1 exit. that takes to long ryan I 90 to I81 lol

5 hours. its also a lot easier. especially if we meet in cheektavegas... And it's a lower chance of people getting lost.

The niagara stop makes sense, if there's another spot closer to skippyville we can meet up, that's probably gonna work better than everyone trying to speed up or slow down enough for us all to get into convoy on the fly.

i will probably be meeting up in blooms burg mapquest has me going @ 4 hrs and 8 min from my location, if anyone wishes to go down through 60 to j town and meet up with me that would be awsome too otherwise i guess im going to be lonewolf on this run till i get to bloomsburg. 219 south dumps right around salamanca as a well, so that might be an idea too. possiably meet in bradford Pa?

well, i'm looking forward to seeing you there sunday! 219 to 80e would be quicker for SF. we just have to go south once we get to Bloomsburg. No biggie.

I'm thinking of going... not sure yet if I I can though. What about this convoy thing? I'd like to join up, but Niagara Falls is about 7 hours out of my way from I-81.
