I will be going.

We had entertained the idea of getting a PMASI bus going but all my leads are either way to expensive or no out of state travel..

i went to register and it's 110.00 for a full pass , how do I get the 89.00 pass? I'm also staying at the Marriott.

Instead of getting a bus and driver, what about renting a van?

04-21-2011, 08:34 AM
I just google mapped it and it looks to be about 13 hours and 800 miles!

Yea steve if I were going I would be flying. I love u guys but I wouldn't want to be trapped in a van for that long! Lol

Yeah thats why we were looking at a bus (charter bus) for a bathroom and comfort. But we would need 15-20 people to make it cheaper than flight..

I really, really, really wish I could go. But working for a school district makes it virtually impossible to get time off for travel in September. Unless a MACNA conference is held within a very short driving distance, I really can't go.

And to think, I only got into this hobby a few months after it was held in Pittsburgh!

I also looked up Amtrak, but they take about two days to get you near Des Moines. I will probably fly.

04-23-2011, 10:54 AM
Yeah we have looked at a few different options. Its not a cheap / easy place to get to.

We will probably end up driving our gas sipper so we can bring back all those raffle items I win

i have also looked into just about every mode of transportation and i think (if i go) i will drive. honestly i dont mind a 12 hr drive. i looked into amtrak as well. the route goes from pgh, through WASHINGTON STATE into iowa.

I will have to ask some friends of ours what route they are taking. They are booking a train from new Albany area and said it wasnt too bad

I just booked my flights on Continental for $360.

Booked flight, Hotel, and purchased show pass. Ready to go!
