Subscribing.

I'd like to make it to one of the big 3 gatherings this year. Alabama, Davis, or Portland.

I am putting this one on my calendar and going to do some serious wrenching to get ready for April!

Like talk now or next week? Should I block some time out of my schedule? This means I need to actually get my car from normal to normal for this trip.

I tried to get 2 days off but it follows our spring break 5-day weekend. Working wed and then taking a 4-day weekend was frowned upon.

sounds like a perfect setup to me, wonder why they were so mad. Perhaps call it a doctor's appointment? we might can get you some documentation to go with it...

I looked for campsites near by and got all of jack ****. The motels near the interstate look affordable if need be.
