Unlike Water Rat, , I'm looking forward to my day off tomorrow! It's a gorgeous spring day here. I wish gorgeous days weren't associated with allergy problems. The pollen count is very high here, and I can feel the effects.

Jimby signed up for Nationals today. So it looks like our Fort-Stud-Speedo-Jimby carpool down to NC is a go!

    So, are you all cramming into your speedster, Fort, to make good time to NC or taking something a bit more roomy? I assume the RV route is off?

    We would never fit in the convertible! The trunk barely fits my equipment bag. Durango all the way.

    RV off as Stud and I refused, despite the other two wanting to have a life experience.

    Carpooling also means you can split the parking fees. Last weekend with then NCAA tourney and Zone Sectionals parking was expensive at the coliseum.

    I think the RV would be a hoot for a 2 day non-champ meet but after a 6 month season of HIT, and the taper bitchies..the carpool down will prob be enough close proximity time for most of us.

    ...and I'm a diva sprinter anyhow...

    Good point. Though we aren't all staying at the same hotel. Shuttles galore too.

    Let's hope Jimby doesn't sing the whole way ...
