In the other thread someone suggested that I not get a rental car if I flew since there's something like 200 people that may be willing to pick you up from the airport and drop you off. If you are going to stay in one place (as it seems you can), taxi's and limo's work well, too.

Montreal is pretty far away, but it's the only place in Canada I've not been. I'm going to seriously consider it.

It was one of my father's (rip) favourite (sic) places in the world, and he had better taste than I do. (And was a hell of a lot better mechanic.. I wish I paid better attention when I was 16! )

I should have gone to Lake Mills last year though.. I'm still kicking myself that I didn't...

some common translations:

Some handy phrases:

Pardon me, I wish to buy some spark plugs for my TDI.

Is registration up yet?

The sign are almost the same, ie Exit sign are the same, except "Sortie" instead of Exit, and french isn't so hard, we just use more letters for nothing than english...

When I was driving on 401 a couple years back, I seem to remember the exit signs not saying either "exit" or "sortie", just the exit number.

Ah come on up. It's not that far. And I guarantee that you'll have someone to meet you at the airport should you fly up.

I'll second that. We'll be working out transportation to and from the airport to the hotel, or at least will provide more information about it. That is one guarantee that can be held to! No one who wishes to attend will be ride-less to the event!
Registrations are not up yet... it'll be sometime before that's going. but soon.

oh, and Fock, sorry darlin', i've already got my roommate, and i'm pretty sure he'll be taking up all my bandwidth from our room. Although, i'm sure there will be plenty of other spaces available.
