I hear Brussels has just left St. Louis and is heading straight to the fest. He's asked the hotel to hold his room for a very late Friday night check in.

Do I need to put out a pit stop sign for him on I 64? :D

Several would do nicely, spaced about an hour apart, or each 40 miles.....
I was pulled over by a State Policeman who wanted to know if something was wrong with my car. I said, "thanks officer, but no, it's just that I always drive with my flashers on!:eek:

Dan, I-495 traffic will start at 2pm on Friday. Any time between 9:30am and 12:30pm is probably a good time to leave Baltimore.

For those of you arriving on Thursday, we'll be around somewhere. We'll most likely be in my room or in the registration suite across from the Ballroom. Stop in and say hi! :)

I'm here, well kind of. Actually drove up to Baltimore for the day. Staying near Inner Harbor area. Will do a little more of the Baltimore area before dropping back down to DC for the fest tomorrow.

Ok, I am here at the hotel now, 10hour drive straight through from Toronto. Left at midnight :D, no traffic, but my Garmin refused to allow me to use the interstate :mad:, every time I got one one, it told me to get off and take rural routes... added about 1.5 hours to the trip or so :(

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

Walking out the door now. Quick stop at Miss Rachel's school to pick her up. Figure 10 hours.

Other car an hour or so behind us.
