From time to time when I cannot make an event I’m asking some friends to write up a piece and take some photos at the event so I can share them with you. This time it’s everyone’s buddy Nick Hoesing who along with some other die hards drove 2800 miles round trip from Omaha, NE to Baltimore, MD for the 2013 Rodder’s Journal Revival.

The 2013 Rodder’s Journal Revival was one of the best road trips I’ve ever been on. Jason Holland and I left Omaha, Nebraska, on the Tuesday before the event and met up with Dave Gray and Kirk Hanning the next evening in Ohio. We arrived in Baltimore on Thursday afternoon at the Fells Point kick-off party. We were immediately greeted and welcomed to the East Coast with open arms. The whole event seemed to be laid back, well organized, and trouble-free. Friday morning’s cruise up to Havre de Grace was a very scenic tour through some of the Maryland countryside. Friday evening’s low light photo session gathering at the Pimlico show venue produced a great sampling of the type of cars we’d see more of throughout the weekend. Saturday and Sunday at the Revival were two great days full of live music, incredible cars, friendly people, great weather, and the perfect setting for this type of event. We headed towards home on Sunday afternoon and arrived back on Tuesday afternoon, without any major issues. It was a great week on the road and I definitely want to make the trip out East again next year.
