Cheri, it looks like the *most* direct route is from Moline directly south to STL. But that's not the point! I need some girl time too (I work with a bunch of guys and in October, I'll be on my own at the client's site.) And I want to get the party started since I have the opportunity. 


I see there's a Fairfield in in Ames and a Hertz at the airport nearby. If we could meet at the Hertz, I can turn in my car and pick up another on the way back. Of course, I have no idea how far the Ames airport is from you. I would have said meet at the Fairfield, but they don't have a shuttle so I can keep my car overnight (cheaper than the cab quoted) and turn it in Thursday morning.


Unless it would be better to meet at your FIL's house. If I can avoid paying for a rental car while I'm not using it, I'd like to. 



Let's get the party started - I like the way you think! LOL :)

Everything in Ames is within 15 minutes (unless it's before or after a football or basketball game, then factor in an extra hour;) so I can meet you at the Hertz for sure and go on from there.

Unless there is a more direct route for you from Moline to meet up with us in the Kansas City area to carpool on from there, you and I could potentially meet in Des Moines at my father-in-law's home and carpool from there together to meet up with Angie and Conda near Kansas City. Oooooh, I love having somebody to chat with along the way!!!! :)

When is that meetup again?!?! I need some girl time!

Oh does everyone have roommates? And what's the FB idea Cheri had?

I think Carla means she's thinking of signing on to FB as CRS (so family can't find her but we can;)

Michele and I are roommates.

Tiza, thanks for the tip about searching for airfare in private/incognito mode. I truly think all that refresh page on kayak.com, etc, got us the great deal when we went out to San Diego a couple years ago. I was also of the mindset that if I got a great price, we'd go for spring break, if I never saw a great price, I'd wait until summer for the trip and continue to watch prices every day. The rates finally dropped for us approximate 30-45 days before the trip. They dropped big time and I hit send so fast my computer spun around;)

Cindy - hope you get a great deal and are able to come! Can't wait to see you again!

Monica - darn furnace! How dare it interfere with the meetup?:( But in Michigan, it's not like you can get along without it. Ugh. I'll miss you!
