This looks doable for me, but the missus has meetings with students on Labor Day. :(

What I liked best about the hotel was when I walked into the Lobby with Parker (my dog) and learned that (a) dogs aren't allowed; (b) service dogs are allowed; (c) hotel staff aren't allowed to ask if a dog is a service dog. Perfect

Parker playing the role of a service dog. Now that's funny.

I would love to come to this year's Fest. Not sure, as I am currently looking for work. I had two interviews the past couple of weeks that went really well; one near Boston and another near Chicago. If I land in MA, then I would try to be there with my buddy n8ronJ. If in IL, that would be difficult. If no job soon, then no chance.

I'll try and make it this time.

It's a very serious responsibility.

I loved the Maine fest, but I'm somewhat surprised that Detroit wasn't picked again, though. Middle of the country, lots of car culture, history, museums...I'm Monday morning quarterbacking and I apologize.

Maine was great, though. Awesome drive up, amazing scenery, the Mt. Washington drive was classic. It was surprisingly very, very fun - and the lift ride to the banquet was a really nice touch. Good venue all around.

We were looking at Detroit/Ypsi again, but the budget wasn't adding up. Food pricing increased nearly 30% and there was an increase in hotel rooms; the value just wasn't strong enough. No worries, we'll be back there for the Detroit Auto Show in January! :cool:

I am sure Parker is the best therapy dog around. ;)

Fantastic! Close enough for a day-trip! Putting it on calendar now...

I think I picked that out of the dryer one time.

Lol that's is not a dog....

I've got something that looks like that hanging in my basement stairwell. It has a wooden handle and is used to mop the floor. :D
