Hi Barbara. We are staying at the Red Carpet Inn about a mile from base. We hope to check in around 2:00-3:00 on Thur 3/24. Driving 14 hrs (or more depending on how many times we get lost) from Blacksburg, VA. Bringing my son, Nik Jarrett's two best friends with us.
Now that I know I was off a week I am feeling a little better. I can see how that happens, my husband has done that he transposed a number wrong on the address and it took a little longer then normal to get to me. I am just going to keep checking the mailbox for the form letter. I'm sure my brother is tired, but I know he's having a great time!
