Default Has anyone attended back-to-back G6 events (or want to)?

Besides Parker and his groupies, has anyone attended two (or more) consecutive RECON G6 events? I'm thinking about plans for next year and it seems like a waste to fly all the way from Hawaii for just one event, except maybe for Axialfest. There are a few instances when events are on consecutive weekends and not too terribly far apart. In particular, these looks like a good candidates:
April 2, Oregon and April 9, Calgary, AB
April 30, Texas and May 7, Missouri
May 21, Rausch Creek, Pennsylvania and May 28, Peterborough, Ontario Canada
October 1, Florida and October 8, Arkansas

I'm wondering if anyone has made a week-long road trip out of something like this or would be interested in doing so.

I know parker is always looking for a road trip buddy for some of the events.

The May date at Rausch needs to still be confirmed. The ORP has not published its schedule for 2016 yet. I am working on that date for Parker.

I would be worried about my stuff being wore out with that many events so close together. After I beat on my rigs for a weekend it takes at least a week to dry it out and lubed for the next one.

I'm just looking at a single pair of events, not all of them That would be suicide!

The more I think about this, the more awesome it sounds.
Are there definitive places for the different states?

^..yes,most of the locations have been set or is set..

Very few are still unknown locations..

Oregon,ran into BLM issue..
Barely got out of the Fix location(vegas/logandale) before BLM showed up..

Out west seems BLM is more of a problem or an issue..securing permits/permission.etc


Ive attended back to back events before i became a Gcrew member..
Fun stuff! My g6 jk did 3 rg6's before a rebuild! And that was threw the Rockbeast blues mudfest to start it off!

Here's the list of all five times that events are on consecutive weekends and estimated drive times:
Oregon-Calgary 14h
Texas-Missouri 10-17h
Pennsylvania-Ontario 8h
Colorado-Florida 18-33h
Florida-Arkansas 8-20h

We need to nail down where the Texas and Florida events might be. As far as drive times are concerned, northern TX and FL are good, southern would be bad.

The Pennsylvania-Ontario pair is definitely possible but the PA date has not been finalized yet.

I'm considering the Oregon-Calgary pair since it's a relatively (stress on relatively) short flight from HI and I think that particular drive would be worth the trip alone.

Thanks Roland. Can you give approximate locations for Texas and Florida? Those two make a big difference in drive times.

I will be attending Texas and Missouri and Arkansas this year. I think they are a week apart. I went to Missouri and Arkansas last year and the Endurance 10hr G6 last weekend.
