    She said that the traffic would be so bad on Friday that I would never be able to get the ferry. So we better figure on some day time activities on Friday DAY. .

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ Okay I'm back from googling. The Ferry is the way google takes us to get there. That is going to be one pretty ride. Down thru Massachusetts and Conneticut across the Sound and you are there. 4 hours drive. SEE YA!!
    Please be advised travel thru or Near NYC and then going East on Long Island on a Friday afternoon / evining is a NIGHTMARE. A normal 2 hour drive can take 4+ hours. Those coming from New England take the ferries. http://www.longislandferry.com/ or http://www.bpjferry.com/. Reservations can be made. Members from NJ or the NYC Metro area know the traffic so they know the problem.

    Those flying into LI Macarthur plan on a 1 to 1-1/2 hour drive.

    30+ people getting together over a few beers talking shop for 3+ days will fit right in Southold Town.

    what kind of hotel/motel is this, cant take a credit card over the phone. have to mail cheque for deposit. dont even own a cheque book. guess im off to get money order.

    I'll give it a rip tomorrow. Maybe if "I" talk to them they will take my CC card.
    With a true New England accent it couldn’t hurt. Hell the locals grew up rooting for the Boston Red Socks and the NE Patriots. Something to do with were closer to Boston then NYC.

    No excuse. Even Texans are allowed. You’ve got 4 months to plan.

    Not a chance. What we can do is get her drunk or even slip her something stronger in her drink so she can't say anything about your not behaving.

    Don't worry about the wives. They just naturally get gabbing and completely ignore us. I think my darling wife, the War Department, would show up at the convention even if I couldn't make it. After seven years they have thier only little girls club.

    Vicki has spoken with Betty and straightened it out. 3 night minimum, Thursday to Saturday or Friday to Sunday.
    The reason for the check is they don’t want to keep the credit card charge for more then 30 days.
