  • Plan on July for the trip.

    Let's rule out anything around the 4th. Not only would that be a busy weekend in Memphis, but some of us might have traditional sort of events we like to do that weekend.

    Poll #277834 Memphis

    What weekend in July? All dates Friday through Monday

    July 9 - 12
    July 16 - 19
    July 23 - 26
    July 30 - August 2

  • This is the tentative driving route I forsee:

    The Northern Leg of the Tour

    margotdarkoKara drives from Ann Arbor to invisible__girlmy house in Chesterton. If he is still coming, mourningtheftJim drives to Chesterton and meets up with us.

    Then, the three [or two] of us drive to Muncie, IN where we meet up with cielopolloCristella, and indeegirlBrittany, who has droven to Muncie from Ohio.

    The five [?] of us then drive to Memphis.

    The Southern Leg of the Tour

    lilacwine83PJ drives to Mississippi and meets up with emergentpatternCharles and lindseymoongirlLindsey. The three of them meet us in Memphis.

  • Vehicles.

    People on the Southern leg could probably squeeze in someone's car.

    The Northern Leg people may require a rental vehicle. cielopolloCristella has mentioned that she would be willing to rent a van for us, since she is of age. I think this would be a good idea... 4 girls + 4 girls luggage + 1 car = haha, yeah right.

  • Money.

    Northern people will be splitting the cost of a rental car. So the four [five?] of us need to keep that in mind.

    I am going to ask my friend if her offer of letting us crash at her family's summer home in Memphis is still good. If not, we'll all be splitting two hotel rooms for at least one night.

    Is the admission to the zoo free? If not, count on that.

    Oh, and food too. heh.

    So, kiddos... from now on, be frugal with your dough, to err on the side of being "better safe than sorry."

  • Anything Else?

    Bueller? Bueller? Bueller?

    If you've got suggestions or conflicts, speaketh now!

I picked a weekend in the poll, but I'm open to any of these. I'd just need to know in time to make plans around it.

I am also excited! :)

I'd imagine if i'm gonna drive to Mississippi that i should get to know those people somewhat...cos i have no earthly idea who they are haha, otherwise i'd be a shell around them....

So friend them and get to know them. :-)

You used to be in on my friends list, I believe. But then you either deleted your journal or took a hiatus or something? I can't remember. I would definitely friend you again, though. :)

I'm Lindsey.
I live in Mississippi.
You, I, and Charles will be together.
We're nice, and won't sing too loudly.

I know Charles' car won't make it.
I'm volunteering to drive the Southern crew.
(southern crew - representin')

Also, I work at Baymont Inn.
There are a couple in Memphis.
If need be, we can stay there with 1/2 off.
I'll just need to know in advance to make the reservation.
