That sounds good to me! Weekends are definitely better since I work full time. My hubby won't be coming along though, because he'll need to stay at home with the kiddies. I'm open as far as location goes!
Hope it works out because I'm already getting excited! [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Columbia is about 2 hours from St. Louis (I know because I drive between the two cities at least fifty times a year). It's not a bad drive at all. If you need directions to Columbia and to Flatbranch, let me know.
Count me in. I can also offer to carpool anyone from StL to the gathering. Natural Perfection, are you up for it? I've got room for 3 in addition to myself (or 4 if folks in the backseat can be fairly friendly).
I thought I'd go ahead and post directions because my memory is about 15 minutes long and I'll probably forget if I don't do it now while its on my mind.
Pretty easy directions from STL to Columbia actually. Take I-70 West to the Providence Rd exit. Turn left onto Providence Rd. Take Providence to Broadway and turn left onto Broadway (this will be E. Broadway, but I can't remember if the sign actually denotes E. Broadway...doesn't matter; there's just one Broadway in Columbia). Take Broadway to 5th Street and turn right onto 5th Street.
The address is 115 5th Street. You can't miss it.
If somehow you get turned around, just have someone point you in the direction of my dearest MU. Flat Branch is on the outskirts of campus. It's a brewery as well, so all those who are legal and wish to take advantage, make sure you bring ID. [img]images/smiles/icon_biggrin.gif[/img]
Reservation has been made for Aug.4th at 1:30. They can only do one check and they add a 17% grad. on top of that so we will just split it up ourselves.
I told them maybe 15 people. I can change that if I need to.
I am a truck driver and I am leaving today and will be getting back home on the 31st. If you don't hear anything from me that is the reason. [img]images/smiles/icon_smile.gif[/img]
I've been out for a while and just now got a chance to check in on plans for the gathering. What are the odds that I will be in California that entire week? Please take pictures so I can put some faces with names! Have a great time!
