Well, assuming all of us that received and submitted the lengthy paperwork are officially "IN", should we begin discussing an ADV group camp?

Based on the above e-mails, I PM'd Ken (Uncle Duke) and asked whether he could confirm who was for sure cleared to work as a corner worker. Hopefully he will respond soon, so that everyone can make their travel plans accordingly.

I'm in. Y'all that have been there before know if there's anywhere suitable for a hammock 'round there?

I just called the Baymont Inn and Suites, which is where the event workers' hotel room blocks were... all booked.

Those of us without official plans really need to make some. There was a camping form in the packet that I submitted. Camping is dry and primitive (i.e. no water or electricity). They didn't say if there is restroom access...

I started planning my route to Indy today. Looks to be a solid 2.5 days of exploring to get there for me and a less-interesting 2-day ride back home.

We could simply reserve camping on our own.

I browsed through the options and given that it will be warm, I'd opt for a shower, which means I'd personally require the following:

Tent camping - motorcycle > 4-day permit > Lot 2

Amenities=
Lot Surface:Grass
Environment:Festive
Water Hookups:No
Shower Facilities:Temporary Shower Trailer
Sewer Hookups:No
Restroom Facilities:Portolets
Electrical Hookups:No
Dump Station:No
Tent Camping Lot:Yes
RV/Pull Behind Camping Lot:Yes
Daily Parking Lot:Yes
Tailgating Allowed in Daily Parking Areas:Yes
Water Fillup Station:No




So... who is in for the ADV-MotoGP bivouac?

Grass? Beats a parking lot. I'll be there.

Me too. I replied with an inquiry about camping, so hope Bob includes that info in the next installment.

I'm in, camped in lot 2 last year, it was nice grass surface but as you would imagine if you want uniterrupted sleep ear plugs come in real handy.

So who's going to establish the ADV-MotoGP basecamp and how are we going to find it, it's a pretty large lot.

I'm not a corner worker, but I've camped in lot 2 since they started racing motogp bikes there, it used to be pretty nice, but every year, more and more retards show up to simply party and act like dumbfucks, they don't even know there is a race going on. last year was my last, I'll be staying in a motel from now on. I like to drink beer and have some fun, but after last year, fuck those idiots.
SO, if you camp there, be prepared.
it's a shame really, it's great to wake up, make some coffee, and listen to the bikes warming up in the pits and watch the sun rise over the grandstands.

Well it is regarded as "festive".

Got another message today regarding dinners and parking.

Any input on food for those planning on staying at the track?

If we're camping there, do we still need to get a parking pass, or will it be covered by another?

I seem to remember that the feed they put on Thursday for the instructional meeting, and then on Saturday evening after qualifying, were pretty good.
