Listen up, here's the plan. Well, a plan

As I mentioned before, tinyjo and I plan to visit Americaland this year. Between us, we have formulated a nascent plan. Before we commit to anything, though, I thought I'd lay it out here and allow a couple of days for people in the know to say, for example, "No, you fools! No-one without expertise in firearms could drive through Maryland and live to tell the tale!" or "If you arrive a day earlier you could come to my party." or "I had somehow missed your original poll, but would like to take this opportunity to express my interest in sleeping with at least one of you after all." Also, if you offered (or would like to offer) theoretical crash space, now's the time to say how likely that's looking in practice.

Here's the plan as it stands currently. If you do have any warnings or promises along those lines, please speak up...

Chicago is six hours away by car; 45 minutes by plane.

Fucker. :(

Of course you know I am in San Francisco - and could probably offer crash space for a couple of days barring visiting family. (Hopefully I will already have seen you guys by then, but if not at least this way I will get to).

You're welcome to crash here if you'd like on your Vegas-SF drive. It's a goodly bit of a drive doing it straight, but we're a straight shot 400 miles up 95A from Vegas (a touch longer if you want to take the Extraterrestrial Highway), and then 4.5-5 hours to San Francisco from here going along 80.

Awesome! And the ET Highway sounds great - worth a slight detour just for the fun of it :)

I should note that if y'all are at all animal-averse or allergic, that ... um, we have a smallish zoo. =) (4 cats, a Doberman, a couple fish tanks, and a corn snake at the moment. The corn snake lives in the guest bedroom, but can be relocated if he gives people the heebie-jeebies. *grin*)

Heh - my only objection to corn snakes is that one of them once pooed on me (when he was out and about after feeding) so as long as he's prepared to hold it in, we're fine :)

Ha, okie. =) He's yet to poo on me! Though I leave him alone in his tank to digest and don't fiddle with him 'til after he's gone, so. =)

Oh yes! We found some really good value flights for this plan so assuming no-one tells us we're crazy on the driving side we are so booking this in the next day or two!

hey, if you wind up with changes in plans after you book, you can totally just come sleep hang out with us more.

Re: Ladies, please
I'm sorry, I have problems remembering how to behave in public sometimes. Clearly I should be punished.

Forgot to say, but in case you hadn't noticed whilst at Burning Man, or don't know the Toronto-Chicago run, signposting of exits on US motorways is nowhere near as kind as in the UK. The exit signs are smaller and give you significantly less warning than you might expect, so get a good set of roadmaps, keep on eye on the mileage, and count like Duke Ellington. Which airport are you using from Chicago - ORD or MID?
