I should not post when I am dog tired and my brain is running a million miles per hour. 

I meant to add that I am really looking forward to meeting everyone.  :)

I would be interested. I'm coming from Union County. Bus or train are both options for me.

I'll check with Jenni, as we're traveling together. First we'll need to know where the hell Union County is.

After some discussion, we're thinking Secaucus is the logical solution. Michael and I are staying in Newark, and planned to take the train into the city. Forgive my geographical ignorance-- I had to consult Google Maps-- but it looks like Union County is right next door, maybe a half hour drive? Ocean County looks to be further out, but if you're up to it, we could decide on a time and meet at Secaucus Junction, then catch the train and head to our rendezvous.

Bless his sweet heart, Michael has volunteered to drive if necessary, but this just seems easier than trying to deal with parking and all that fun stuff. Whatcha think?

26 days and counting! :) (And, oh, yes, I am counting!!)

Texarkana. Or closer your way, if you prefer-- there's just not much between DFW and the Arkansas line. ;) We'll make it happen.

A clarification about driving: I've heard from so many wids who had become used to being chauffeured and feel somewhat paralyzed now that they have to drive by themselves in scary places. This is understood - in fact, it's SO understood that, for the purpose of this bago, Jen and I are prepared to act as a sort of shuttle. If you're willing to work with us, we're willing to come get you; we'll get you to Secaucus Junction, park my humble little vehicle, and take the train into the city. The train is 8 bucks for round trip and takes about 12 minutes. From Penn Station in NYC, we cab it to the bago. After the bago, we reverse the process and get you back in one piece. Babysitting is still your problem; I'm not a bloody day care.

The bottom line is "no wid left behind" - if you can get within, say, 20 miles of Secaucus, we'll get you to the bago and back. You may want to let us know as soon as you can so we know if we'll have to get a van or something. Please come join us; bagos change everything.

Secaucus is good for me. The train I take stops there on way into city.  If anyone wants to come to my house and travel with me....let me know. Fyi...I am exit 135 off Pkwy. It's a Jersey thing...lol
