Trip To ME, VT, and NH

Hi Guys,

We are looking forward to our trip on Memorial Day weekend!  We are planning to leave on Friday night and come back on Monday night. We will stay at three different hotels during this trip.  We are looking at a number of locations.  For now, please make every effort to plan on joining us on this 3 day trip.  We will post more details soon.  We just wanted to make sure you update your calendar.

Thank you!

AJ & Denise

    Hi All,

    Later today I will e-mail some important details to everybody who is going on this trip with us. Please check your e-mails. We are leaving on May 23rd and coming back on the 26th. At this point we are not adding any new travel buddies to this trip. This RSVP is not correct. This trip's booking and plans have been finalized. If you did not respond to my earlier requests to attend our last meetup or have not met our group at all, or if you have just joined the group online, we hope to see you at our next meetup to help plan future trips. It is important to get together and get to know each other before we travel together. Thanks You!

    LOL... This is turning out to be a very confusing trip...... But i cant wait..... Even if we do rent a van wouldnt we have to pay for the mileage or is that just like pay per day or something? Anyways... cant wait... And for the hotels.. do we know who gonna to be in what rooms? Will i be with AJ again like on our last trip?

    thanks for all your work!! just a couple of questions: are these hotels decent ones, do they include bkfsts, if those prices are two per room prices, did you inquire about one person per room, just in case? did you leave time for lunch, dinner etc, for those who want to eat? also, we saw the place (don't remember which state) that had wine, chocolate and cheese tastings... wondering if we can fit a bit of time in for that? anyone remember which state it was in? ll bean is huge, how much time did you leave for that, for those ll bean lovers, it might take us a bit of time in there. I see Saturday's schedule doesn't leave time for unforseen delays, food, pee stops, it's quite tight on the times... just fying yall about that... before I rsvp I need to see if I can get my puppy sitter for that wknd or someone else. thanks!!! :o)

      Hi Jennifer just to clear things up first of all the first hotel is one that you recommended and yes breakfast is included with both hotels I noted that in the itinerary, also I also checked the prices out for a single room and the prices were the same, also of course there is time for lunch stops ,dinner stops and rest stops. so yes you will be able to eat, I just didn't note those stops because it wasn't nessasary because we would have stopped and ate while we were out. Also Jennifer there is only 2 stops on Saturday which is only a 4 hour day, so there is plenty of time so I'm not sure why you thought Saturday was tied up. Well I hope I answered your concerns, thanks

    • Jennifer R.

      hi denise, I know I suggested that hotel, but just checking you guys looked into it as many hotels might be from decent chains, but they might have taken over other chains that were run down and are in need of repair and such. just making sure. if you look at the times and lengths of times for the two items on sat it's very tight and no time for lunch (for those who want lunch) between the castle (1.5 hour to look around) and then getting to the train ride (3 hours long) and then driving over two hours to the other hotel (no way to check in 3pm if we are leaving the second item 415/430.) maybe it's me, but the times are tight, unless I'm reading it all wrong? still need to see if I can get my puppy sitter for that weekend. will let ya'll know.

    Hi All,

    Here is the detailed itinerary, (in next comment, due to 1,000 letter limit) for our trip on Memorial Day weekend. We are leaving Friday night around 8 p.m. and returning Monday around 8:00 p.m. Note: Lunches and dinner amount are included. Also, at this point we do not know the ticket price of the trolley ride in Boston.

    We still need to finalize vehicle rental or taking our own cars. So far we have 8 people. Two new members, Rich and Sheryl have RSVPd to go with us on this trip. However, we still need to confirm if they will join us on this trip. If so, then we will need to have another meetup just to make sure to meet them before we all travel together. I will be reaching to Sheryl and Rich. More to follow...

    Itinerary in the next comment....

  • Jennifer R.

    hi guys, sorry I haven't responded, but wanted to speak with you about details first. three nights, three states, three hotels, just seems like a very tight schedule and running around. might be a bit too much for me as I don't like rushing when trying to sightsee and moving from hotel to hotel seems like a bit too much also. what did you have in mind as far as tours and such? I don't mean to sound like a drag.... :o) let me know...
