Klattu,

Just a word of advice, SC HWY Patrol is back on the warpath with one of their "let's see how much revenue we can generate in a ticket writing frenzy" campaigns again, and have announced that HWY 17, between Myrtle Beach and Charleston is one of their major targets. Keep it in mind when you pass through.

On Oct 7, decent weather permitting, we're leaving Charleston, and doing Charllotte, Atlanta, Jacksonville, back to Charleston for our 1000/24hr.

Good luck and a safe journey for all.

Pete
