Roughly 18 hours through 7 states, I probably won’t be making it.

Monty is taking a train down to Mule and riding with him.
There’s a train station about 2 hours out. I’d be willing to come get you. It’s on our route down as well.May 5, 2008 at 11:22 am #56301
Train? What’s its name/brand? Where’s it run through near me?May 5, 2008 at 3:44 pm #56302
The one that I am referring to is Amtrak I believe.
Amtrak leaves Iowa City for Chicago twice daily. Obviously, there’s more time involved in train travel then air travel but the cost might be better.May 5, 2008 at 4:28 pm #56303
There is no Iowa City on their listings… but Mt Pleasant and Davenport are not far at all. What is the closest city to the gathering that I should look for? I don’t know South Carolina at all.May 5, 2008 at 6:07 pm #56304MontyKeymaster

Sadly, it’s probably more expensive on Amtrak. Plus, you would have to take the train to Washington DC, and then on to Dillon, SC. The trip would be more than 36 hours, and cost about $220. Not a realistic option. You would do better getting a flight from Chicago to Baltimore and then driving down with Mule or one of the other guys. Amtrak does NOT go southeast at all, really.

I’m surprised you guys didn’t hear me laughing out there on the east coast.
I punched it in and had a 4 hour trip to Chi town, then 18 to DC then another 8 or 9 to South Carolina. 😆May 28, 2008 at 12:00 am #5630691XParticipant

directions look good. it is the second house from that corner. we will be in a gold maxima, if we are there. if we are not, the key will be under the concrete pelican by the front steps. my cell number is 704-472-4674. the house number is 843-249-5075, so you can call and harass the ones that went.
