[T3] Invasion 2012

My early thinking is doing the Cincy to invasion run in 2 days, that's about
600mi per day pretty much straight west, a bit more aggressive but vacation
days for me are still a premium and I have to spend some time with my sister
in cincy.  Still in the planning phase though!

I got to keep the speed down this year, 70 or so, at 125Kmi I noticed when I
held 80 the blowby would run it about 20 degrees hotter, she's still strong
but gettin old!

We started looking at routes and timing last night.  First run through had
us leaving Dearborn Tuesday morning and driving as far as Iowa City for the
night.  Wednesday would take us to North Platte, NE and then a short day on
Thursday to get to Colorado Springs in time for the Early-bird BBQ.  

This would make for some pretty easy days of 8 hours, 8.5 hours and 5 hours.
Little lighter that we have done in the past, but making it in two days
would be 11+ both days and get us in late on Thursday.

The lighter days might be good if we have a larger group than we have in the
past.  Would give us time to stop along the way if there is anything
interesting to see (swing into the Wolfe compound, etc.)  We would not feel
like we had to be up at the crack of dawn and on the road.  Of course this
is completely flexible at this time and we can make adjustments as

Anyone coming from east of Dearborn, MI is welcome to stay at the house
Monday night and push off with us on Tuesday.  We have plenty of room.

Return plan would be similar, but maybe swing a little to the south and go
through St. Louis and Indy.  Again...very preliminary thinking on this.
