Hello! Long time no chat. Busy at work and wishing I was an Olympic swimmer

Ken's BF.e fund is up to $365. Good job! Food and hotel are covered. If anyone else wants to donate, that would be great as I'm about ready to book Ken's flights!

Yeah, I'm all about the Super 8 cheapness this year too. But Hey! Only 2 more years on my vow of poverty. (School)

Hey, so what are the plans for Friday night and Sunday? Bimmerfix.e will likely not need to happen on Sunday, since I'm likely not gonna do the heavy duty repairs (since I may very possibly sell the car). Is there go-karting or some cars & coffee outing we could do Sunday?

Last year the SUnday was the drive home day for most of us. It was a epic road trip of itself. It started with the Philly run, (We HAVE to do those pulled pork sandwiches again :yum then we dropped off the NYC people (SOme GREAT driving there).

However I'm all for extending it a day or so!

Many things to see and do betwixt Philly, DC, NYC etc.

If someone is heading south, could they drop Ken back off at the airport in either DC or Baltimore on Sunday? I have an 8 hour drive to do. CJ, maybe you I can can draft off each other on the way home???

If I make it to BFE I'll be heading south on Sunday and going by BWI. I'll know for certain I'm coming by the week before.....work schedule uncertainty makes it hard to commit any earlier.

I could swing by Dulles too if that's the departure point.

I'm looking at driving up and taking the autotrain back. I'll be going by DCA both directions but it will likely be Friday afternoon or later on the way up.
Auto train leaves from Lorton VA at 4 so dropping you off at DCA shouldn't be a problem if that becomes my itinerary.
