Default Who has already left home?

I'm just wondering how many people have already left home to drive to the Fest. Currently, I am in the Lansing area, and will be leaving from here early tomorrow morning with a view toward arriving in Montreal toward the tail end of rush hour. (I built 30 minutes into my schedule to clear customs.)

Posting from the Erie, PA Hampton Inn. After I check my email I'll head up to the room and see if I can talk the wife into a soak in the jaccuzzi.

I left Bloomington IL. late on the 27th. Stoped at Presque Isle for a few hours and then it was on to Niagara Falls. I will be leaving Niagara Falls at 7AM in the hopes of getting to Montreal by 3PM.
Just want to warn anyone crossing at Buffalo that the QE has some major construction going on just north of the falls. Had what should have been an 11 minute drive turn into a 45 minute drive last night.
