    Ok, now that Kathy's not going we either need to get some more people to go or Chris or Rita came buy my other ticket at a discount. Otherwise, I'm stuck now with a $45 ticket instead of a $25 one. Otherwise, Judy has said she would reimburse me since she can't go now. :(

    I can't go. I just got a trip to Connecticut - leaving in Tuesday and returning on Saturday morning. I am good for the ticket if no one else needs it. I am not a happy camper right now.... I travel all the time alone and just really want to do a trip with the girls...

    I also have a ticket for sale now that Judy's not going. Rita, Chris or Kathy? It's a little cheaper for 2 instead of single tickets.

    November 14, 2012

  • Cheryl L.

    Not sure Lynne. Ok - everyone Lynne has her part of the ticket that Debra bought available. I think Judy's ticket might be available too. So if you don't have a ticket ...don't buy one until we find out what's already paid for.

    November 14, 2012

  • Lynne P.

    Cheryl
    Does any one still need a ticket for the tasting? Debra got one for me.

    OK - leaving Fri. afternoon -- Me, Cheryl S. (TOC), Judy, Charlee, Debra. Please reply to this thread if you are also leaving Fri. (do not start a new thread.Thanks.

    October 29, 2012

    • Lynne P.

      What time will the Friday group leave? If after lunch (noon), I want to go on Friday too.

      October 29, 2012

    • Cheryl L.

      Yes Lynne- we will leave after noon,so I'll add you to the list.

      October 29, 2012

  • Cheryl L.

    Some of us may leave the afternoon before the event to get a jump on the driving.So if you think that you will be able to leave on Friday please let me know and we will plan accordingly. The average cost of hotel room is $50 per person per night. Consider that in your decision as you would have another night of expense.

    October 25, 2012

    • Cheryl S.

      Trying to stay on original message....I will leave on Friday afternoon also.

      October 29, 2012

  • Cheryl L.

    Please understand how this trip will work and this is an outline of many of our trips.
    Some of us will be leaving on Fri. afternoon. The rest will follow out Sat. morning. If you leave Friday you will have to pay for two nights in a motel.
    Everyone will need cash to pay the driver for your part of the gas. Avg. 20-30$. You will give it to the driver at the end of the tip so please hold it back.
    This is a tour- I will try to plan the route as best as I can ,but sometimes we may not stay on plan. You will need to be flexible.
    On Saturday night we will not have reservations for our motel,we will find one when we decide to stop the tour for that evening.
    You do not need to take a lot of luggage...we don't always have room. And we do not dress for dinner--just what we've had on all day. Hopefully you will get along with your roommate - if you don't let me know so I can TRY - not to pair them with you again.
    This tour will most likely not require a lot of walking. Some trips will.
