Okay, time to buckle down and seriously think about this.
Unfortunately, some complications have arisen on my end. First, I'm pretty sure I've used up any vacation time already, so I'm already looking at a short weekend (Saturday through Monday). Also, I've been summoned (summonsed?) for jury duty on Aug. 31st (yippee). Not that I expect that jury duty would last longer than a day, but I suppose it'd look bad if I tried to leave the country if it happened to go longer than expected.
I'm looking at a roughly 8 or 9 hour drive. I'm inclined to take it in order to save money, but it seems a bit much all by myself (not that I haven't done it before). Is there anyone else in the southern New England/upstate New York area up for carpooling? Remember, I'd be traveling Saturday morning...or even possibly Friday night. Otherwise I should probably look into plane tickets ASAP.
For those who have done it before: if driving, is a passport necessary
, or would it simply be helpful
Is there still available crash space somewhere, or would people go in on a hotel room with me?
Sorry for the lengthy post...I'm just tired of Tynan bugging me to BE THERE.
