John Jaranson prodded me to look at our caravan route more closely.

At this point I'm thinking of starting on Wed, going south thru IL 
then diverting slightly east and catching the southern tip of IN, 
including Evansville. That takes us a bit more east in KY and I see 
that we'll be almost central in TN. We should arrive easily in time 
for the thursday evening kickoff dinner and gettogether.

If it turns out that we have people wanting to join us from farther 
west, but not close to the Evansville route, I can be talked into the 
more western route.

The total journey should be under 12 hours, which makes this easy 
with one night on the road, probably in KY. 

Speak up now if you think you'll try to join us, because it will take 
some time to finalize the route and arrange meeting place and time. 
If you don't speak up, you lose your voice in the caravan route, so 
speak up now.
