      My friend Nina is also coming and the best western is just 1 king per room...so we are probably going to get a room together and if any other girls end up responding, we can split with them too

    • Steve "Secret Agent M.

  • Nathan

    I just did ORBITZ.. to check out the hotels... there are many options.... I am not familiar with the city. I do not know what people would like to do... crash/share 1-2 rooms or get individual rooms. I am up for anything. I think one person needs to decide.. then the rest will have someone to aim for.

  • scott

    Just purchased ticket for Saturday. I plan on driving out starting at about three pm from downtown Stl on Friday. Anyone who wants a ride can join. Also I would be good better with hotel but can camp if that's what we decide to do.

    • Nathan

      Scott, when are you planning on coming back? I am up for any kindof lodging. I would like it to do whatever the majority of the group decides. Nathan

    As for hotels...it looks like everything close to downtown is sold out, except for the Peabody and the Westin which are more than $300/night. The airport is 11 miles away from the park, but rooms can be had for $[masked]/night and that's not bad splits 3 or 4 ways.

    Anyone interested in driving down for some of the Friday shows? It looks like the concert starts at 6, and maybe we could leave St. Louis by 11 am or noon?

    April 22, 2014

  • Steve "Secret Agent M.

    please post if you can leave Thursday night and that you want to buy the 3 day pass for concerts
    OR if you want to drive down Friday and which pass you want. 1 day or 3 day. gotta buy tickets today. there are also a few hotels left about 2 miles from event or we will camp and taxi in for event on Saturday

    April 22, 2014

  • Steve "Secret Agent M.
