Traveling together, in a bit of a caravan, is the way to go. It makes the trip 
much more fun, as well as providing assurance that any problem you have 
can be solved by someone. You'll have lots of help and there are always lots 
of tools and spare parts.

Minor repairs, like valve adjustments and tuneup checks, are common, and 
semi-major repairs sometime delay us for a few hours, but I don't think we've 
ever had to leave a car or owner behind. Nevertheless, it's important to get a 
few long trips on your odometer before trying one of these extended trips.  

How many days depends on where you start from. Keith comes from upstate 
NY; John & Jill (and possibly Bob & Sue) come from the Detroit area, and I'm 
in southern Wisconsin. We will likely to be the core of the northern caravan, 
but we always hope to pick up more on the way. There are likely to be other 
caravans, coming from different parts of the country. Some people may opt 
to fly and leave their cars at home.

Where are YOU located?
