In that case, Zack, that leaves the door open for you (or anyone else for that matter). Phibs has got relations in the area he's going to stay with so if you want to go I've got an extra spot in the hotel.

UPDATE!
More updates on page 1

When I went home last weekend I was able to get a little recon done while I was there and I'm starting to pull together something that resembles an itinerary.

Also there was mention of the Franklin Institute. Great place! But seeing as I hadn't been there since I needed I permission slip signed I had to do a bit of research on it. First a foremost, it ain't free. Base admission is $13.75. That'll get you in the museum and a show and the planetarium. For the King Tut exhibit the tickets are a separate $25 and have to be purchased in advance.

Okay, the recon is DONE! Although parking is still a small concern once we get downtown BUT... I'll cross that bridge when we get to it.

Anyhow, I've added a map to the first page with a basic tour path and pointed a bunch of stuff worth checking out. I even included pictures to make it like a virtual pre-tour. :D

The link is in the "Itinerary" section.

Why does it say:
Hotel Room Registration

* All rooms for this reservation have been registered. Please contact your Group Manager.

Good choice putting $4,000 rims on your 1990 Honda Civic. That's like Betty White going out and getting her tits done.

For some reason, they put all the registrations in my name. I had them clear it out so you can try again now.

That's quite an itinerary. My guess is we won't hit half that stuff.
By the way, what is Thar be Dragons!!!? Is that a reference to Drexel University?

Not quite. ;) Drexel's acutally in University City, Philadelphia. It's more or less a reference to Jersey being a No Man's Land. :D

Carpooling

I've started a carpool sign up on page 1. We'll need three vehicles to carry nine people. (3 on the list are driving their own cars)

I have two drivers so far, myself and Laura. Darrin offered, if he can find an EZ-Pass. If for whatever reason he can't, I'll just need someone else with an EZ-Pass who can drive.

So let me know who's riding with who and I'll update the list accordingly.

Can E-Z Passes be loaned out?

I'll gladly drive and pick-up anyone up if I can borrow it.

If not and I end up riding with someone I'll be happy to cover gas and chip in for tolls.

Alright, Let's get serious about this, Lets' get some lists going.

We need 3-4 cars/drivers and EZ Passes:
Car 1. Libra Monkey (aka Chuck) Blue 06 Sti one down
Car 2. Phibs white 05 sti has radios two down
Car 3.
Car 4.

Riders:
Car 1.
1. Mr Kleen (unless drafted to pilot Car 4 :wink: ) +2 radios
2.
3.

Car 2.
1. DRWRX & wife
2.
3.

Car 3.
1.
2.
3.

Car 4.
1.
2.
3.

We'll need options for riders who can either meet the drivers and leave their car's at the driver's residence or the drivers need to pick folks up. I wouldn't leave a car in a parking lot for 2 nights.

We also need to make sure we've got phones (or hand-helds for intra-car communication) just in case.

We should also pick-up some magnetic rally numbers we can stick on the cars!

Well it's a 'given' that I'm driving and whoever rides with me can park their car in my driveway. Like I said before, Colin & Laura have offered up Laura's car.

Since no one is really chiming in on this "carpool" deal is it safe to assume that everyone is driving themselves?
