Rally Point Notes:
The TAT starts in Ripley, WV, so that's where we will be beginning our journey on Saturday, 12 June 2021. We will start the driver's meeting at 0900 at the Walmart Supercenter #1450 200 Academy Drive, Ripley, WV 25271 (off I-77 at exit 138). Suggest folks start arriving at 0830 to meet & greet, and get vehicles lined-up. At 0900 we will put out any final information, make sure we're all on the same radio frequency (radio checks), answer any questions, assign numbers, and will then head out. Before we meet at 0900, ensure your vehicles have been gassed-up, coolers are filled, tummies are filled, bladders are emptied, and you're ready to roll. We will not be stopping right after we roll-out to get gas.
