2017 MGB Coast‐to‐Coast Adventure
Put a tire in the Atlantic and tire in Pacific at the beginning and end of a historic MGB road trip of 9 days taking us across the southern United States to NAMGBR’s MG2017. Our tentative plans include using a southern route of secondary roads and some high speed interstates. Of course MG fans across the nation can join in anywhere. This plan has a couple short days for touring local sights. These short days also allow for catch up if anyone was delayed for unscheduled
repairs. Our model is the Rally to Reno in 2011, but with a more southern/southwestern flair.
Starting Point – Savannah, GA, Friday, 6/16/2017
The City of Savannah is a place with so much history it is too much to list. This city was spared by General Sherman at the end of the Civil War during his famous “March to the Sea,” so the beautiful antebellum homes fill the streets just as they did in the late 1800s. In addition, the Eighth Air Force Museum, probably the best air museum outside of Wright Patterson AFB or the Smithsonian Air Museum, chronicles the U.S. Air Force’s roll in defeating Nazi Germany during WWII. Our tentative Friday itinerary includes:
Dinner and put a tire in the Atlantic on Tybee Island photo opportunity meet us on Tybee Island around 6:00 pm the North Beach bar & Grill, 1501 Chatham Ave., Tybee Island, GA. 31328.
then on Sat morning 7:00 am departure for Montgomery, AL

Hampton Inn & Suites Savannah I-95
591 Al Henderson Blvd
Savannah, GA 39141

and some of us are next door at Fairfield Inn by Marriott.

Might have to argue with you on that, PJ ;) I have been to The Smithsonian & National Museum of the U.S. Air Force in Dayton with the Boy Scouts. The National Museum Of Naval Aviation in Pensacola, FL is right up there. I have been there 3-4 times. Not to be missed.

Enjoy your adventure, PJ!
