Google says 25 hrs from Portland. Ha! The DL could do it in 20...

Unless it breaks down of course.

You guys should set up some kind of motorsports event there. Maybe a big autocross or something.

You know the registration info (and this thread) mentions nothing of that, right? If there are more details we should know, you might mention them.

If it was mentioned in FB, you should know there are some who don't participate in that.

Not to be a TB cliche, but both of my Volvo's are inop at the moment, and I'm not going to drive 6 /12 hours each way in a non-Volvo car to go to a Volvo meet.

Can't blame you too much, however I drove 23 hours to Davis this year in a non-Volvo. Just sayin.
