There are a couple bits of info that are confusing below. This
is no doubt my fault as Samy got his 411 from me while I was trying not
to type from wrist pain.
The cost for the charter is $720 for the round trip. That's the
best price and assumes that we will gather in one place before being
picked up. If we want to be picked up in different places, we have to
add $10 per additional pickup. It also turns out, and I didn't know
this when I spoke on the channel earlier, that our schedule isn't
available except by charter. The owner had planned to have no service
for one of those days and is only interested in changing that plan for
Finally, leaving Thursday is a little tough for me. I don't
really have any vacation time. I was thinking of a shorter Friday -
Sunday trip. I can be convinced, but if others are sketchy about going
on Thursday as well, perhaps a Friday departure should be considered.
(If everyone who wants to go wants to leave on Thursday, I'll just have
to push at work. :-)
So speak up all! Who's into it?
