    Me, but as someone else said, I'm waiting for the vendor list to be published to be "assure myself" that it's really going to happen. Until then, I'm waiting to book my hotel.

    I figured on starting a new thread in September sometime to get a list of Grumblers coming, and maybe to make a plan for dinner together one night. :)

    I just registered, but I haven't reserved a room yet. I will probably drive even though I have a much longer drive. I just hope this event doesn't cancel out again.

    its a toss up

    drive 1340 miles 23.5 hours round trip 30 miles a gallon= 45 Gallons @ 2.75 = $123.75

    Fly $160.00 and 6 hours round trip includes taxes,etc. Airtran airport 5 miles from house. Train to hotel $2.00 about 2 hour flight + one hour at airport. Can work or rest on plane total hours roundtrip 4.

    Flying would be would cost about $50.00 more but would save me 18 waking hours.
    Probably fly..........

    One eyear I flew down and back the same day. 6:00am flight down did the show & a couple parties and then 10:00pm flight back.
    Might not be able to do that now since you have to take your shoes off:-(

    To me ... it would be worth it to fly!

    You know what they say ... time is money.

    PLUS you will not be as tired, to me that's the important part.

    I will most likely fly even though the drive is only about 6 hours. I haven't booked the flight or hotel until I see the vendor list.

    Remember to throw in the cost of parking a car in Atlanta ~$20.00/day.
    Flying and Marta make more sense to me even though I'm only 5 hours away. The other option would be to stay with my sister in Dawsonville and play like a local and commute to the show (about 1.5 hours by car and Marta). Either way I wouldn't have to keep a car in downtown Atlanta.

    Still waiting on the vendor list before I make my decision. I know of a couple who aren't going to be there, but the show could still go on.

    At the old location it wasn't $20.00 parking...don't know about the Mart location. 3 1/2 hours for me so if it is on I'll be there!

    Parking around the Mart $15 - $20 about right. Parking lots are privately owned. :cry:
