    When I mentioned the area of Route 161 (Dublin Grandville Road) at the I-71 as being a bit rough, one reason is the number of low class strip joints in the area which has a tendency to bring in some of the more unsavory types. The four murders were all drug related or related to incidents at the strip joints. During the day the area is fine but late night - early morning not so much.

    There are two "inns" at that exit that make the news often because of drug raids / prostatution. The chain hotels are probably fine but just keep an eye out for problems.

    Also COTA (bus drivers and mechanics) are on strike and while this will have no direct effect on anyone coming to Good Guys, traffic on the interstates may be a bit heavier than usual Thursday and Friday.

    That is the hotel my car was stolen from. I thought with so many people in the parking lot it would be safe. There were lots of cars all around mine but for some reason they took it. I'll be more carefull where I stay and will have more than one cutoff switch from now on.

    And sorry to hijack the thread just want every one to be aware and keep an eye on yours and everyones car. Would hate to see anyone else have their weekend end like mine did last year. And if you catch a car theif in the act call me. I have some frustration I need to get rid of.

    I'll be coming Fri. Maybe we could set-up a parking lot watch---the Motel is booked full,so I would assume there will be a lot of hot rods in the lot.
    BUT I'm having a LOT of back pain :(---might have to cancel,will decide at last minute :confused:

    My rooms are at the Knights inn on Dublin-Granville. Now I'm worried. Anyone else staying there? I'd be willing to fork out some cash to hire some security. Bill

    48 stude Good luck. That place is basicly a sewer. About 5 yrs ago I had a lizard bite me on the leg while I was asleep. Dirty place. The back units are rented by the hour. week, or month.

    48Stude - that is one of the places I was refering to earlier in this thread. I am not trying to be an ass or run down the area but I have lived in this general area since 1992 and have seen it deterioate. I really hope everyone has a safe stay. Two warnings: Construction downtown at the I-71 and I-70 split is nightmareish and watch out for the red light cameras. The city make a ton of money off them and they are all over the place.

    The next exit north (past I-270) on I-71 is Polaris and there are many nice hotels ranging for a Hilton to Comfort Inn. A lot of resteraunts and a big shopping mall. May want to see what is available. It is only a couple of miles north of the Dublin Granville exit.

    The power is on in most areas but some are still without. Its all hit and miss, call your hotel and ask. Lots of traffic lights still out also, I was all over the area today, there was no rime or reason as to whom had power and who didn't. As for the hotels, the closer to the Fairgrounds the worst the neighborhoods. Lots of construction going on downtown also so relax and stay cool. PM me if you need local help.

    Our crew as well asz a lot of people we know stay in Worthington, off RT.23
    Its about a 12 minute ride with no traffic..lol
    The circle of hotels and food joints is alittle higher scale. We stay at the worst place on the circle, which is Motel 6.
    Most of the other places are way nicer and cost $.
    So we've never had trouble in 10yrs.

    We may have extra rooms we're going to cancel. So if anyone needs one, speak up now.
    She has to cancel them by tomorrow.
    89 a night for 2 double beds...maybe queens..can't recall
    But they're for Thursday check in....

    Email me directly incase I don't get a chance to get on the HAMB later or tomorrow

    You guys scared the hell out of me . I found rooms at the Red Roof Inn on Brice Rd. I hope that's a better neighborhood. This will be my first time out with my truck, I'll have enough on my mind, without having to worry about lizards and their cohorts. Bill

    Posted on my own thread, didn't realize one had already been started (even after a search) Just thought I'd get on board. Heading out in the AM, plan on doing the poker run...Can't Wait!


    Wondering if anyone else is going to this year's 15th Goodguys PPG Nationals?

    The weather forecast keeps getting better & better, as the week progresses. HOT:eek:, but only 10-20% chance of rain, depending on the day:).

    I can't wait. This will be the first trip to Columbus for our '32 Ford 5 W Coupe. I've only put 500 miles on the car since building it, but no trips of this length before. I hope all the bugs are finally worked out.........

    See you all there!:cool:

    Wondering if you don't make registration by the 10AM start time, can you still participate? i.e. I get to registration at 10:30AM, can I still register and go on the poker run?
