Default Should I stay, or should I go?

Man, I am pumped about #6. So much so, that I am contemplating driving from KY tonight to make it up there in time for the parade tomorrow. Rationality says don't drive the 6 hours to Pa, don't battle the crowds, and watch it from home....but my heart says, you don't get many chances like this!

What would you do? Anyone traveling in from other places just to attend the celebration?

If I was within reasonable driving distance, I would go.

Tell ya what man...my advice is GO! I didn't go a few years ago (even though I was only an hour away) because I had a class...and I've been regretting it ever since! It killed me that I didn't know and who the hell knows when I would ever get the chance again? I'll tell ya right now classes or no classes I'll be there tomorrow! I say go for it man!

I drove it after XL from Harrisburg to Pitt.....was about 3.5 hours.

Blew $500 on a room for 2 nights at the Hilton so I didn't have to get in our out during the mess....was the best $500 I ever spent except for game tickets to the AFCCG 2 weeks ago.

Make sure you go EARLY EARLY.. .I went for the XL superbowl parade & couldnt see crap b/c I wasn't early... I wasn't LATE.. but unless you get there early you cant see anything.

I cant really say, because I don't know what time folks started getting there, we got there about 1/2 hour early...

Sounds like it might be a "come at midnight, stake your spot on the sidewalk and camp until parade time" kind of deal....

Man I'm near Louisville and would totally go if I didn't have classes (we had no classes last week due to weather, so if I miss these I'm pretty much screwed).
