Unless there's a last minute edition in the deep south, looks like I'll miss it...

Hmm Toronto's the closest spot I can see. At least it's a Saturday.

Yeah, my budget this year is too tight to allow for much travel. If he was doing St Louis, I could probably swing it. Oh well. Confused

In my case, it's more about timing than funds-
I'll either have a newborn or be impatiently awaiting its arrival-
neither of which makes for good long distance travel conditions! Wink

Baby just kicked me in agreement, or protest, dunno which... Razz

Newborns are perfect for travel: they are extremely portable and compact.

The problem arises when packing -- the sheer volume of accessories necessary for newborns strains credulity. Even on short jaunts to friends' houses, I found myself taking practically everything we owned for the kid, just in case... But I learned the hard way: if I didn't bring it, I would need it. Desperately. So I brought it all. Laughing

That's the theory behind my backpack, which has nothing baby related in it so far... Wink

Come up to DC again! Babies are very portable. Early on, we learned not to bring absolutely everything. There are essentials, but you don't need a lot of entertainment-type items. They're satisfied with very mediocre everyday items. Just make sure she's fed before the event, and she'll probably sleep through the whole thing.

There used to be a rumor about an alleged number of times you could do acid before being legally insane-
I'm thinking once in DC with a 2 month-old that's only supposed to be 1 month would do it
cuz I gotta sleep sometime! Shocked

Revisit this idea in a month. You don't have to make any decisions right now. You might be ready for a road trip by April 16!

If we had the teleporter, I'd so be there but I don't know if we could leave the store that long,
much less a 12-hour road trip with 2 tiny bladders...

Then again, if we did have the teleporter,
I get the feeling we'd all be the 21st century version of deadheads
& follow on the whole tour & then I'd bring all y'all to my store to recover... Wink

Zen,
why not contact HC and see if they'll add your store to the tour?

Even if they don't this time, you'll've begun priming the pump for next time.
I'm sure I'm not the only one who'd be willing to order their copies through your store in order to hype your sales numbers.

Believe me, we were considering it before but it was too close to my due date to commit-
well, when considering that both of us were past full term...

We'll discuss it but it's pretty hectic right now for lotsa reasons
though we may be able to sort things out by the next tour,
provided our building's big enough to host a Southern AG show-
ask anybody that went to the last one, we were packed in like sardines! Shocked

I'm also not sure if the main website's still up, we had some issues with it
& planned on switching to another one & I'll have to find out more myself...

But this part's still going:
