Driving
Curious if anyone is driving and if you are, what distance will you be traveling to attend the convention?

Also coming from Atlanta area; per mapquest, 482.61 miles (that's assuming I take no detours on the way lol).

May the sweepstakes fairy visit each of you today!

GT Buzz, not sure if you were talking to Karen or to me or to one of the other sweet GA peaches, but I bet you can hitch a ride if you need one! That convention hall should smell really nice from all the peaches that will be there.

Thanks! I was teasing Karen as I know she has a long drive. I got a pretty good price on airline tickets as I didn't want to drive. You will see me there.

I appreciate the offer.

Karen, how many days are you taking to drive down? What days will you be at convention?

I'm in MASS and to get to Florida we've done the crazy drive straight through in 24 hours, but usually we do the one night layover on the way down.

On the way home we always do a one day layover.

Wishing & hoping & thinking & praying, planning & dreaming... and entering!
