I feel your pain ST500. My nephew, who untill a few days ago kept saying he was going, just backed out of the trip.:( Looks like a solo trip for me as well. Although your ride looks a bit longer than mine.
So you have a space now Papa? I can be your nephew! Only problem is that the deadline is today.:( My parents are also very "not cool" about the school thing. Oh well, I will get there next year or all hell will break loose!!!!:p :p :p
