    3.5 hours my ass. Took me 4.5 hours to go the first 100 miles. The second 100 miles was a bit better. I have never seen traffic like that ever in Maryland.

    Like Shane said, yes we do. It typically falls in later September or early October. Location has ranged from as far south as Tennessee and as far north as Pennsylvania. :top:

    I have driven from MD to CO, and UT to attend meets. I have flown out to Cali to attend meets.

    If your ass is to soft to drive far, catch a plane and ride in with someone. Just do whatever you need to to SHOW UP!!

    It was pretty short notice for me from when I got my X last year and wasn't in the budget :/. Hopefully I can make it this year! Seems like a pretty great event.

    The cheapest seat on an airline is the first one sold. If the date and place for the event can be nailed down well in advance, it can be cheap for people to get airline tickets to get there pretty cheap, cheaper than driving.

    The most expensive seat is the last one sold. I just bought tickets to Salt Lake for Thursday and have not been able to sit down yet.....
