    I have messaged the attendees three times about carpooling, and although there initially was a response with interest, no one has followed up to solidify plans so I had to change my rsvp to no because I cannot drive to and from in the same day due to a recent injury. If anyone changes their mind and wants to work out a carpool plan, let me know and I'll change my rsvp.

      I am still recovering from a bad facial and head injury after a mountain biking accident. So realistically I am NOT going to be able to drive to and from this event in the same day I'm at this point it's too late for me to find a local reasonably priced pet-friendly Hotel. So I really need to know if anybody is planning on driving to and from the same day and would allow me to accompany them and share the expenses. If so we should probably confirm soon when and where to meet. If no one responds or is planning on doing this in having me accompany them I will change my RSVP to not going asap so that its not last minute.

    I'm sorry to back out, but I'm going to have to work next weekend. My organization's annual conference is Oct. 4-5 in Asheville...I must've been a little crazy to think I could take a full day off less than a week before the conference! I hope you all will have a wonderful time. Take and post lots of pictures, please!

      If someone can share driving I'm willing to save $$ and come back. I can chip in for gas etc
