New this year! Great event, in a fun area!
Thursday, June 9
Departure. Yes, that says 5:07am!
Minor side trip on the way: A couple days earlier my brother had emailed asking if I knew there was a "Labaree St." in Watertown WI.
I actually was aware of that, but hadn't thought about it for years.
Checking the map, I found that it was only about 30 miles off the route, so it was a no-brainer.
There it is! Less than a half mile long, but there's a C5 in one driveway!
Arrival at Chula Vista Resort.
In the outside bar!

While the eight (yes, 8) road tours came and went, we were set up (trying to keep from freezing) in the Registration Tent with NCM Board member Ivan Schrodt and staff member, Doug. Ivan shared his room with me!

Saturday featured a Corvette Parade into downtown for the Corvette Show.
After I packed up, I had to wait for a tractor parade to go by!

5:38am departure. Note the temp! (10 minutes later it had dropped 2 degrees)
After a gas stop in Effingham IL, I swung through Mid America Motorworks.
Final stats. Note the temp - a 52 degree change from start to finish!
Thanks to Sue Kiry for a great time. I will definitely do this again next year!
