Take Off:

Above are just a very few of the over 100 Corvettes at our start point. Many beautiful 2014 StingRays!!! My favorite car so far, a 502 c.i. 1967 the rumbles when it idles (and this is its third Caravan); just to hear it gives me chills.


And folks think that gas for our cars is our priority. Nice person in foreground left, Nancy Jaksich is serving us; she is the owner of Suburban Chevrolet (largest Corvette dealer in Oregon), and is going on the Caravan all the way to BG with us, in her new StingRay.

Off and running in the next hour, is the eventual 300 Corvette, Pacific Northwest Corvette Caravan, bound for the National Corvette Museum, Bowling Green Assembly Plant, and the brand new NCM Motorsports Park -- where, just before arrival next Wednesday, will be part of a Corvette Pack of over 4,000 Corvettes, from C1's through C7's.

Along the way,we are continually joined by others, 125 more Corvettes from here, 35 more from another area, our ever growing adventure, hooking up with so many new Corvette friends. The PNW Caravan, though drawing from only Alasak, Montana, Wyoming, Washington and Oregon, is the fourth largest of the 18 regional Caravan. Here's a partial summary, with, as time allows, updates along the way.

Our great Caravan Captain, Robin Forrer, with our excitement, is taking us the long way round, going through Wyoming and Montana, seeing Great Platte Arch Museum, Cheyenne Depot early train museum and also stopping and spending time at the "American Museum of Speed." For those of us who love great scenery, museums, road trips and our great cars, this is going to be a fantastic adventure. Forget sleep. And might have to forget the nightly, road-trip travel ritual in our Corvette, detailing our baby before we go to sleep. Also, Dave Ressler, one of the most avid Corvette car collectors (who paid $1M at Barrett Jackson in January, 2005 to buy and now has VIN # 001 for the 2006 Z06) , has invited all of us to his Montana ranch for a steak dinner -- all 600+ of us (and that will only be day three of this six-day traveling road-trip party). His ranch is so big that he has its own racetrack. And his 50+ car private collection includes many other historical Corvettes and I think 15 other brand notables. His most famous the car is the oldest production Corvette still in existence, 1953, serial # 003. This will be such an amazing caravan adventure. In fact, just this morning gave my great wife Annie, a trip nickname, e.g., "Caravannie.

Stay tuned, for as time allows, updates and pictures coming as this adventure evolves. Simultaneously, as we leave from Sandy, OR (near Portland), from an another departure point in Seattle, another 100+ Corvettes have just left -- to meet up with us in Eastern Washington for lunch, at a dealership who has invited us over to be their lunch guests. 2,840 miles of smiles to go.

A fun sign. Nancy Jaksich's husband, Jerry, owns the next door Ford dealership. Jerry is also going on the Pacific Northwest Caravan in a new StingRay. Please look carefully at the reader board sign.
