If it weren't for the fact that I am dog tired right now, I would offer to drop by and help out with some of this stuff. The hotel is kind of on the way home from work for me. I could practically ride my bicycle to the place .

Our lunch plans will consist of getting things ready for check-in. We'll probably just order some pizzas and pig out in the registration suite.

Oh, and someone should have checked to see if the hotel was going to be "under construction" or not during the fest

Hey Joel,

I'll be leaving at 3pm this afternoon.

My Garmin, Google, Mapquest shows that same rural route. Need options. Which way should i go?

Would it make sense to go Toronto - Buffalo- Erie - Pittsburgh - Washington? All interstates......... hmmmm.............


later,
Pete

I'm here, FOR THE LOVE OF HEAVEN, BRING BUG SPRAY PEOPLE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Becareful of the GPS, you need to take the toll road into the hotel, the GPS told me not to but that was bad. By the way, when are they going to get I95 finished?

Room 915

By the way, got a mathimatical 700 miles/tank on the drive down in my 2009 sedan DSG
