Perhaps it is _me_, but the last few posts which come down again "any
spacing" sound to me as if they are saying that if two vehicles from
Troop 777 are on I-10 between Mobile and New Orleans at the same time,
these two vehicles constitute a "convoy" under BSA rules.
I'm not arguing with the basic premise (which is, I think?, that seeral
drivers trying to "stay together" on the highways is dangerous and nearly
impossible). I'm just questioning the _apparent_ result which is that no
Troop/Pack can have two vehicles use the same road on a trip.
For the NCACers here, this sounds as if you can't use the Beltway to get
to I-66 to I-81 to Goshen. It also sounds as if the buses are routinely
breaking the policy by moving out at timed intervals and heading to Goshen.
As I say, maybe it's me?
