      When are others planning to arrive...Thursday afternoon?

      How late does this event go on Sunday?

      This would be a nine hour drive for me, so I a thinking of driving up on Thursday And arriving around 5:00 pm. As for departure, it would suit best to stay Sunday night and then drive home on which case, it would be nice if others stay for a full day of flying on Sunday.

        Hi Jim,

        I'm planning on driving up Thursday morning. It is a 3 hour drive for me, so easy to get there by 9 AM. I'll fly until mid afternoon on Sunday and leave around 3ish. I'm guessing len will go up Wednesday afternoon.

          hey there...yup arrive Thursday midday and leave Sunday around 3 also ...will be camping.

          Looking forward to it once again!

            Due to the cost of hotel rooms in the area, I'll be arriving Thursday mid morning probably and leaving sometime in the afternoon/evening on sunday. Its about a 5 hour drive for me

              The plan:

              Not counting gas and rest stops, the trip is 9 hours for me, so I plan to drive up on Wednesday. Will stay at the Marriott Courtyard in Middlebury Wednesday and Thursday night. Since no rooms were available for Friday and Saturday night, I will camp at the field those nights. After flying Sunday, will drive about half way home and stay in Mahwah, NJ Sunday night and finish the drive home on Monday.

              Anyway, this will give me a full day at the field on Thursday, so will anyone else be there early?

                If all goes according to plan, I will arrive on Thursday around noon. Planning on camping at the field as well.

                  Going up on Friday after school. I should be able to camp if the superior forces allow. Hope the weather holds.

                      Got the hotels worked out so my plan is to arrive in time for some flights on Thursday.

                        Unfortunately it looks like work related issues are going to keep me here at least thru Friday. That could change on a last minute notice but at the moment it does not look good to make the trip up.

                        Take pictures!!!

                          We are here! Got the tour of Marc's laser shop. Now we're off for cider doughnuts! Georgeous day in Vermont.

                            That's Marc's fantastic back yard! 13 acres of VT beauty. We pick up the trailers Thursday AM and relocate to the flying site.
