    UPDATE: The Cruise was a success. Everyone that traveled made it home safely. We had a great time. This will be a regular event that is organized in various locations each year.

    I'll have 4 2-way radios that will be used. if you have your own please bring in just in case. better to have extras or backups than not enough.

    Also please answer the poll if you plan on attending. If you are inviting friends please post that number as well. I don't plan to have a large group. Small groups are easy to manage as well. So let's start small and see how this goes.

    I invited 3 local people. I don't expect them all to come. I expect 1 at the most.

    The route and map looks good. Most of the waypoints are familiar to me so hopefully we can focus on enjoying the drive instead of watching GPS.

    well I've got my 2 way radios working. batterys were garbage but i replaced them with and they can now be on standby for more than 24hrs which is a lot better than before. these should last the whole cruise and then some.
