    The wife and I are going to Crusin the Coast in Mississippi in October.Never been there before.Can anyone give me some tips on where to stay.We are looking for a nice hotel maybe on the water but not critical.Is a central location important or is it easy to get from one show to another.I wont be taking a hot rod so I'll be in my daily driver.
     
  2. Your going to love this event! I'd say get a hotel in Gulfport. You will wind up going est and west from there to catch all the action. The registration is along the beach in Gulfport/Biloxi. It's all up and down the beach (hwy 90) so you really can't miss things. There was a Hamb meet and greet parking area last year that was a nice grass field right on the beach. Should be able to use search function to find it since there was a thread. Tim

    there are good motels on hwy 49 in gulfport. a lot of cars stay there . they are about $60 a night cheaper than staying on the beach rd. make sure your car runs cool in traffic if you are lucky you will move about 4mph on the beach rd on sat. there was a little over 7000cars reg and about another 4000 that wasn't last year . go early in the morning and find you a place to park on the beach rd by the water and set and watch the cars go by

    We always stay right up by I-10 in gulf port. rates are a lot cheaper and its all about cruising so the short 10 minute drive to the main drag just adds to it for me.

    I'll be there. Hope someone plans a HAMB meet and greet for sure. My car is in pieces this year but supposed to be cruising in a 36 something or other. Next year I will have my car there!
     
  16. I will be there 3 nights. I am not registered, I am not really sure what it gets me. Maybe there is a better way to communicate when we all get there. My hotel is on the main drag.

    We will be there. Thanks for the effort Cherry Deuce! I do think it would be cool to caravan with any others who are planning on heading out to Bayou Roundup. We are trying to leave Friday morning, somewhere around 10-noon.

  26. Nuff said, lets roll! Since you're over in Bay St. Louis we can meet up over there somewhere, if you see a good spot let me know. We can spread the word.

    Sorry I missed the throw down at the taco stand, caught in traffic in d'Iberville.....seriously....Had a blast.....I guess I missed the Bayou Roundup, was unaware it was this weekend, CTC on Saturday is pretty much a washout, to many Z71's, Donks, Mustangs and Camaro's....

    We went early to avoid the crowds, just for a look-see, but will be back next year I'm sure. I can't imagine how cool this weekend must have been with a full load of cars. Going up, I had a double (both sides) rear axle bearing failure rolling into Pensacola Sat afternoon (9 month old CARQUEST bearings suck, eh?).

    Sunday AM we did the National Naval Aviation Museum (free admission) at NAS Pensacola - a MUST SEE for airdales and aviation buffs. I stayed behind Sunday afternoon while my buds pushed ahead. Using the NSRA Fellow Pages, I found a shop Monday AM to fix the diff - the rodder friendly Jerald Henson Automotive (850-477-4212) which is very close to exit 7 / I-10 and was in Biloxi mid-afternoon no sweat.
