      Hey so I just found out I have off from work the 1st through the weekend, so I'm strongly considering this trip. Went ahead and RSVP'd for now, since I was surprised to see a spot open (but if anyone who has been waiting wants to jump in, I'll bow out)... Considering the reservations are already made, is it even possible for me to go? Please let me know thanks!
