Date Announcement for Milwaukee Meet-up


After careful consideration and much discussion with the husband, I've decided that the first ONTD_AI meet up will be on:





JANUARY 8TH, 9TH, AND 10TH


For those who aren't able to make this date, fear not! If all goes well, and I have no reason to expect anything else, I'll most likely throw another one once the snows melt.

FAQ:

1) I'm Driving. Can I arrive before/leave later than the dates above? Yes! I am the queen of road trips so I know that an extra day is nice sometimes when you have a huge drive. Feel free to get in whenever! Also, please allocate yourself plenty of time. You will be driving North. In Winter. Check probable road conditions before you leave, call me several times throughout the journey, and try not to die.

2) Um, flights are cheaper if I fly in Thursday-Monday. Kosher? Of course! Really, whenever's clever bbs. Contact me once you got your tickets and let  me know when to get there.

3)Should I fly into O'Hare or Milwaukee? Check both for ticket prices. O'hare is ORD and Milwaukee is MKE. Keep in mind that O'hare is about an hour away from me. Therefor, if the Milwaukee ticket is only a bit more expensive, consider saving yours truely an assload of time and gas money! Also keep in mind that I will drive back and forth to the Milwaukee airport several times, where I'll probably only make one trip to O'hare so you'll be stuck waiting for the jerk that flies in at the last minute. Also, weirdly, every time I've searched, MKE flights come in cheaper.

4) Why these dates? I wanted New Years Eve you Whore! You cocktease worse than Kris Allen! As fun as this would be, I felt really awful thinking about scorning my husband on NYE. Even if he stayed for the party, my attention would be obv elsewhere and that would make me sad. Sorry kids! It would be epic, but for the sake of my marriage, I decided on the weekend after.

5) Why Milwaukee? Um, I was under the impression that this was a Danny Gokey Community,so when I spent my vast fortune on a hotel and conference center, I chose Milwaukee as the location. No. It's cause i live in Milwaukee, ladies. I own a house there. Unless we have more people than my house can accommodate, the meetup will take place largely there. If we need a hotel, I will see if we can sweet talk the hotel into a meeting room for the festivities.

6) I have more questions. Ask them


MORE INFORMATION WILL COME SOON. UNTIL THEN, FLAIL LIKE YOU MEAN IT.

                                        OR BITCH AND MOAN, WHATEVER.


****DC/EAST COAST BENCHES CHECK THIS OUT

I'll be there! I just don't know if I'll be driving or taking the train, yet. I'll likely take the train to the Milwaukee station. I'm betting it'll be cheaper than the gas money. Plus, I get to sleeeeep.

I know this is fairly close to the start of my spring semester, so I'll have to see what's going on with school before I make any plans. Also, I have no idea how I am going to get my parents to not lock my legal-adult self down. That's probably the biggest hurdle, tbh. They don't understand my ~internet life~.

OK I AM SEARCHING. SOUTHWEST HAS THE CHEAPEST FLIGHT FROM DETROIT. IT'S $99 FOR THE WANNA GET AWAY PRICE.

SADLY IT WANTS TO TAKE ME TO EITHER BALTIMORE OR KANSAS CITY FIRST. I GUESS DETROIT/MILWAUKEE ARE TOO CLOSE FOR A DIRECT FLIGHT =/

SO...APPARENTLY TAKING THE TRAIN IS BOTH CHEAPER AND FASTER.

NOW I JUST HAVE TO TRY AND SCHEDULE SO I DON'T HAVE CLASSES FRIDAY AND CONVINCE MY FAMILY THAT THIS IS A SAFE/GOOD IDEA.

aw, i totally would have gone. my sister lives in southern wisconsin so i'm around there all the time. but matt's solo show is later that month and i don't think i can justify flying out there so close together. bummer. but maybe there'll be another meet up!

GIRL!

I was getting super-high airfare prices ($238 was the best I saw...), but I looked up buses and I can go on a bus from Detroit to Milwaukee for LESS THAN $80 ROUND TRIP. Holy shitballs!!!

And on that note, I think I'm coming... :D So I claim a bunk while the gettin's good. I'm old and frail so I want to stake my claim before the whippersnappers descend...

Any other Michigan peeps want to bus with me?
