COWTOWN CRUISER PROGRAM - SPONSOR

Sponsor Tips:

The following is a listing of a few tips we have come up with as we have been hosting cruises.  If you other tips that would be helpful to fellow cruisers, please forward the info to the Cruise Chairperson

  • Planning your Cruise.

    • Cruising is more fun on the smaller highways, avoid Interstates if possible. The smaller highways are usually more scenic and many times have more curves to enjoy our Vettes

    • Cruise Length Suggestions:

      • Day Cruises - no more than 2-3 hour drive times, closer to 2 is better based on feedback from cruisers.

      • Weekend Cruises - 5 hours seems to be a long enough drive day for most; there are exceptions though

  • Run your route as close to the date of your cruise as possible; same day and time if possible.  For overnight / weekend cruises this is not practical.  Examples:

    • If you plan to depart at 9am on Saturday, try to run the route starting at 9am on a Saturday.  This lets you see how the traffic will be and will give you an accurate timeline for arrival at destinations.

    • Don't run the route too far ahead of the cruise - road construction can pop up in a matter of weeks and sometimes even days.

  • Routes - Lights: avoid driving thru towns with lots of stop lights if at all possible - larger the group the tougher this is.  If those are unavoidable and there are two traffic lanes, advise the cruisers to double-up in both lanes at red lights - then to move back to a single lane afterwards.

  • Stops:

    • AVOID stopping on the side of Interstates and major highways - it is dangerous and a photo of a sign isn't worth the risk.  All cities & towns have many roads leading into them, get off the busy highway and take a smaller road out to the edge of the city or town and you'll find another sign, usually in a safer setting.
