Did you happen to ask/tell your employer that you've bought tickets to America for January (whether or not that is actually the case)?

Hey Edith, what days were we all going to leave and come back on? Also, since I'm the farthest south, do you want me to hop a bus to Columbus or Cleveland or something?

(Oh hey, 4000.)

Even though we already talked this through in gabbly, I figured I'd post this so if anyone else wants to drive with us it will be possible.

Jon (cerny) is pretty sure he can't make it now.

I haven't heard from Adam in a while and he had never totally committed to the trip, so I am guessing he probably won't make it either.

That leaves you and me. If the weather is good, I'll come get you and we'll take a southerly route. If the weather is bad, it'll be better to drive a northern route, because they know how to clear roads better in the north and also there will be less potential for ice storms, so we'll meet in Cleveland or Columbus.

I am off work Jan 15-21 so let me know when you know your dates in case anyone else decides to go with us.

If we take the northern route then that should be possible. It might be rather last minute by the time we know, though, are you going to be okay with that?

What would you mean by "northern route"? Route 2? Actually, if you took 2 instead of 90, you'd run right through my town.

As long as you can let me know before that Thursday afternoon, I'm fine. I can snag the 2:30 bus out of Pittsfield if you can't pick me up.

northern route means driving along the great lakes

southern route means cutting across the country further south and coming up along the east coast

I don't know what route 2 is, and I can assure you that I will not be taking it

It's slower than the interstates and brings you right into Cambridge. I would suggest 95 or 90 over it in a second.

So I have pretty much decided I probably won't be attending. It's a long ways away and I'd have to miss probably at least two days of school, which I really can't do. I'll totally be at chicago though!

I, can no longer make it to Boston. This whole internship thing has left me so broke, so broke guys. I won't even be able to work over winter break because I'm going to down texas for an ungodly amount of time in December (wow, never thought I'd say that.) So yeah, sorry.

Well I am having airfarewatchdog.com watch for cheap flights to Boston. If they find anything for under $200 (long shot, I know) I could possibly still make this. I give it about a 5-10% chance.

Attendees:

DefinitelyJon, DefinitelyRachel, DefinitelyEdith, DefinitelyLinds, DefinitelyShane, DefinitelyJimmy, ProbablyTyler, MaybeOtherJon, MaybeAdam, ProbablyAllyButOnlyForALittleWhileOneDay.

As far as I know the people I just listed all either live in or near enough to Boston or have arranged lodging. I think the floor space at Jon's is all gone, so if you plan to go, a hotel/hostel/B&B situation would be best. Obsessions can recommend places that are close to where everyone else is staying if you PM him.

Let's find out for sure whether Jon is in or out. PAGING CERNUNNOS TO THIS THREAD.

Edit: If Jon is going, then we could both go to Cleveland and crash there Wednesday after work and be 3 hours closer when we start out. If he isn't going to go, maybe he'd let us crash there anyway?
