Is it too soon? My company has a mandatory sales meeting in late October - I have declined if it interferes with the Getaway. Plus I have been talking about a possible workshop and the British contingent needs dates.

SOOOO....dates? October what? Who's going? Who needs a ride? Who wants to share a cabin? ETC

See y'all in Darlington, Maryland. It will also be the 40th Getaway, and the planners are working on some events and guests to commemorate the round number anniversary.

Midchuck, you've got an easier faster trip than Jeri and Kendall. If you put both Pittsford and Darlington in Yahoo Maps it's only a 6 and a half hour drive. NY 87 and then over to 95 it's a pretty straight line and you'd avoid most of the big city snarls.... really there's no excuse...

6 1/2 hours? Possibly. If I had a Ferrari, diplomatic immunity, and a passenger who was an expert pistol shot, carrying a couple of Desert Eagle .44 mags with armor-piercing ammo...

Looks like I'd come down the Northway and NY Thruway to 287, and loop around the major NY/NJ metropolitan area to the west, then pick up 95. It looks doable, except that so much of it is in NJ, and it's a given in Vermont that every single last New Jersey driver is crazier than a shithouse rat. And on a friday evening, they're all going to be drunk, too.

This will require thought.

An alternate route to consider from Vermont and northern reaches is to cross I-84 to Scranton, and then come down I-81 to Harrisburg, and then I-83 (or other route) down the Susquehanna River. It's longer than the route through NJ, but far less subject to traffic jams.

If your road map doesn;t show Darlington, find Havre de Grace, MD (at the mouth of the Susquehanna where it empties into Chesapeake Bay). Now go upriver about 10 miles to the Conowingo Dam. Darlington and Camp Ramblewood are on the left shore, just a mile or so below the dam.

Tinker, we judge New Jersey drivers on the basis of the driving of the ones who come here to ski.

They all have large, new SUVs. They all appear to think that because they have SUVs they can safely drive in snow as fast as they can on dry pavement in clear weather, and that anyone who disagrees with them ought to damn well get out of the way.

Do you ski in Vermont?

Nope, we don't drag the horde that far north to ski. I will have to agree on the winter driving assessment. If it's any consolation they can't drive at home on snow either. Some folks have really slow learning curves. We get snow days for ridiculously light snow fall, simply because the "roads" (read drivers) really are that bad.

But there is no snow in October.....

I DO recommend Charlie's route thru Pennsylvania, even if it adds an hour or so...it is a lot easier on the nerves. Midchuck...would you have Friday to drive? This is not easy to do if you are committed to work all day Friday & Monday. (At least it is not 2 hours MORE south or east, like it was a few years ago!)

The Pennsylvania route adds exactly 42 miles to the drive from New England. I've clocked it both ways, because I was curious. However, it adds only about a half hour more driving time--and not because I'm a crazy driver. There are NO TOLLS on the Pa. route, so you're not always standing in line waiting to pay for the privilege of driving again. Through Pa. from Newtown, Connecticut, it's just about 7 hours to my house in Silver Spring--about an hour less to the Getaway. Boston is a 9-hour drive to my house through Pennsylvania (which would make it 8 hours to Darlington). I drive fairly fast (75 in 65mph zone) and have the proverbial camel bladder that requires very few stops along the way. On 95, you have to pay (eastbound only) for whichever NY bridge you cross, for the NJ Turnpike and/or Garden State Parkway, the Delaware Memorial Bridge, the Delaware Turnpike, and the northern Maryland portion of I-95 (northbound only). It all adds up to lots of lines, lots of money, and (at least in my case) lots more stress. Pennsylvania route is over interesting, scenic roads. And did I mention no tolls? Kathy

On a road trip from Anchorage, I would have to drive over 3500 miles, traverse three major mountain ranges, cross 2 international borders, and explain six times to several Canadian authorities that, "Even though I'm from Alaska, I do NOT have a hand gun" (then wait each time while they search my car). If I can afford the fare, I will be flying. But I will probably need transportation asistance from whichever airport I happen to find a cheap airplane ticket for. Sure will be great to see you all again.

I may try to got the Pennsylvania route this year. I tried it once, going to DC, and it added a LOT of time, but there was road construction.

Note to Tinker: people in Vermont think any driver's crazier than a shithouse rat if they get the tractor up over 15 mph. The NJ drivers will probably mostly be New Yorkers anyway. And guys from Vermont, going 30 in the fast lane.

The 87 to 287 to 95 dodge, avoiding the Garden State madness, is a pretty good one, Midchuck. I've used it, but I confess I prefer Kathy's route through Pennsylvania, especially now that the chronic construction hang-up around Scranton has been eliminated (or wasn't causing the usual problems when I last drove over that way). Being able to avoid New Jersey altogether makes it a lot easier on the temper, too. Give 'er a go!

To get to Ramblewood from Reagan, it's a matter of following the interstate over to I-95 and heading north! (passing BWI on the way)

Midchuck, you HAVE to get to this one. I also recommend taking Fri and Mon off to do so. I am beginning to think of a Manchester BWI flight down, as southwestern is pretty inexpensive and it's a darn sight quicker, although riding down with Barry was much of the fun last year. Down with Barry, back with Southwestern???

Also, was there some talk of a concert tour with Alaska Mike to make the trip worthwhile? I know that I have done some concert presenting and have had mixed results, but if you want to take a chance on a house concert (great food, a good place to stay and possibly some $$) I might be able to swing it, although I'd be at the extreme end of the tour (so what else is new)

I can't speak for Vermont drivers now, but I do wonder at the folks who do the Montpelier-Burlington commute at 70 mph in ice and snow, and wear high heels or dress shoes and look so darned startled when they can't even get out of their stuck SUVs on the interstate because of the ice. Must be flatlanders.


I won't miss it.

See you in October, and will come into it less crazed with a few more songs in my head. I'll also bring a flannel lined sleeping bag and won't refuse those ear plugs.

Linda (Essex Girl) and I keep thinking about a trip across the atlantic during one autumn, and Micca was trying to persuade us that we ought to go to Getaway. The main problem is the fact that Linda has a 15 year old son (no he most definitely wouldn't want to come to anything folkie). Unfortunately the date doesn't look as though it would fit in with his falf-term holiday at the moment, but we might be able to sort something out.

Can someone give us any idea of how Getaway's organised and what it costs. We both enjoy impromptu song/music sessions and at most UK festivals are much more likely to be found in the "fringe" pub events (often running them ourselves) rather than the big concerts.

How easy is it to get there from the UK ? - Micca reckons that it's easiest to fly to Washington and travel from there.

Why is a shithouse rat particularly crazy? Don't think we have them in England, least I've never seen one.

It's a line I got many years ago from an old friend who was a native Vermonter, which only a few of us are, and had lines like that he kept coming up with, and I kept stealing. I suppose the underlying theory is that even a rat has a number of options as to where to live, and must be crazy if he chooses a shithouse.

Did you hear about the folk guitar player who couldn't make enough money to find a place to live and was afraid he'd freeze during the winter? He finally found an old outhouse he could rent, and he could at least sleep there if he sort of curled up. But as work got harder to find, he couldn't even make the rent on that. But he survived the winter by subletting the basement to a banjo player...but I digress.

Peter.
