How many of you plan on or have gone to graduation? It is a long distance for us , my husband has not flown since he was a teenager and I'm not sure I could get him on a plane anyway! We are from a small town so city traffic seems intimidating to me though my husband is a truck driver. (He HATES traffic,too) Our son doesn't go to boot camp until Feb 23 ( his 21st birthday!) but I am trying to work this whole thing out in my head. I have look at airfare/hotel/car pkgs and about choked!
Hi, My son graduates 2/18/11. We live in NY and can't decide to drive or fly. There are 4 of us going. It is expensive, but I don't want to miss it. Any good suggestions??
Well I am down to only 2 of us going. Me and my youngest son. Ex-husband is not allowed!!!!! LOL

That's how we went. You can rent a car right in the airport. Borrow someone's GPS and it's a straight shot to Great Lakes! About 1 hour 15 min, if I remember correctly. You definitely need a car. There is lots of time to get your best deals and don't forget the paperwork you got from your recruit in the mail. It has the paperwork to register your vehicle for a pass. You need the pass to get on the base. Read every page they sent you. You will be glad you did. Lots of information. I said above I used coupons and codes for the car and the hotels. Ask your friends, they will be able to help you book for cheaper! Good luck!
