If everyone coming will PM me with their schedule and hotel plans, I'll put together a list and look for a place for Fri dinner.

I just did a Travelocity search and found a Comfort Suites just NW of Ocala on 75. Queen rooms $114, King rooms $139. Parking lot has video surveillance. Has 4.5 stars on several review sites. I booked there.

I’ll be checking out your car progress in a few weeks, probably the second week of December.

That is right by the Country Inn & Suits that I have reservations at. There are a couple of other nice places to eat in that same shopping center.

Right down the street from My hotel (Homewood Suites as well). Sounds like a good place for the Fri Night get together unless someone has a better suggestion.

Allen, What route do you plan to take down to Ocala? I am thinking we'll take the back roads through the Panhandle and avoid I10 and I75. Probably 20 to Tally, then 19 to Perry, in Perry we can pick up 27/41 all the way to Ocala. Another option is 98 from Perry to Chiefland, then Alt 27 to Ocala.

My car is just back on the road and hasn't seen Highway use in 20 years. Not sure I want to push too hard. Figuring take it slow with frequent stops.

I'm thinking along the same lines as you. I'm not sure the last time mine saw road use unless you count the 20 minutes I was out yesterday. I did get her up to 80 on the 4 lane just to "try" her out. We're planning to leave that Thursday and take it easy. I've actually taken the route through Perry before I remember it to be a pretty good route. I'm going to make sure I make a few short road trips before this one though. I'd like to get a little more use to her and make sure she's ready. I have more work to be done before then anyway, just hope I can get her to the point I can drive it down and back.

Whichever way we go, it certainly wouldn't hurt to have a few going the same route, in case...

We take the back road from Ocala a lot. Hate the traffic on the interstate. The back was is a nice road and scenic. I am still sorting my car out too. Currently fixing the brakes, next up is a alignment, and I may have to replace some tires. They sat and may no longer be round. Hoping they just need balancing. Then I think the C4 pan may be leaking.. Everything else seems to be running well. We'll also have a van following just in case.
