Is there a proposed date for the FtB con yet? I like the idea of hitting up both, maybe even getting a few recruits from FtB con to join us.

There is talk of a Freethought Blogs convention (either free or very inexpensive) in Cincinnati, OH (about 12 miles from the Creation Museum).  PZ Myers talks about it at the end of one of his posts:

I hope to go to the FtB con if the timing works out for me.  If we could make the Creation Museum trip at the same time as the FtB con, that would work out great for me.

If the FtB con goes on, and our road trip is not at the same time, I would likely just go to the FtB con, but if they are at the same time, or the FtB con doesn't happen, I'll go on the road trip.

Google maps says it is 10 hours 36 minutes to drive the 617 miles from Hampton to Petersburg, KY.  So I think staying at least one night is a good idea, but I would prefer to stay in Ohio rather that Kentucky.  Since Kentucky saw fit to give tax breaks to the Creation Museum and Ken Hamm's upcoming "Ark Encounter", I would rather spend as little money in Kentucky as I can.

Hey there, skeptics!
Mega thanks to everyone who has come out to join our meetups and made this group so successful. I love meeting all of you!
Anyway, Aiden and I were talking about planning a trip to the Creation Museum in Petersburg, Kentucky ( My plan is, go through the museum, laugh at the hysterical science denial, leave evolution tracts in the book store, then go slightly off the property and pass out atheist literature to anyone who walks by.
We'd like to plan the trip for Summer 2013 and wanted to know how many people would be interested in going. We were thinking about renting a van to drive everyone down there and possibly staying overnight. I have a friend who works in the hotel industry who might be able to get us a discount.
E-mail back if you're interested in the trip. It will take some planning, but it would be super fun.
Thanks and I hope to see you soon!
