How will you travel?
« on: February 05, 2013, 09:53:33 PM »
I thought I'd put up a thread about how people are getting to the fair (car, train, plane, etc.) I personally will be flying there from Minneapolis. A second part of this is how will you bring all your things? Last year I had a separate carry on for my costume and my normal clothes checked in a larger suitcase (my haul from the fair was in there too).
This year however I will have a vendor table I'm sharing with a friend, and I'm wondering how people get all that stuff down there. I know most vendors probably drive but I won't be able to. I'm thinking maybe having to check two bags, but then there's the chance something happens to the checked baggage and then what would I do?

Ahh first world pony problems.

Last year we traveled by plane so I was limited in how large my purchases could be.

This year, it worked out cheaper to drive from eastern Pennsylvania.  The trunk of my Honda Civic is ready to be loaded with ponies :)

It will be probably about a 10-11 hour drive for us.

:good:

So happy... will be driving. 1.5 hours away in SW Ohio. Looking forward to not being able to see out of the back of my honda element because of piles and piles of pony purchases :)

My boyfriend and I will be driving! It's a 3 1/2 hour drive so it's a simple drive for us. :)

I admire all of you that are driving! I looked it up and it would be about 10 hours driving which isn't BAD. I've done 14 hours to Florida before with a friend (from where she is). I just would not have someone to travel with and I'm a type 1 diabetic so driving that far on my own probably isn't a good idea anyway!

Driving from St. Louis, MO. We will meet at my brother's loft apartment and then head out from there. I will be traveling with my mom and two brothers. It's always crazy to travel with them. Lots of laughs and farting in the car. Halfway I'm sure we'll stop at a gas station and they'll pick up beer and start getting tanked (well, my brother who is driving won't. Wise of him!). As for me, I don't like doing that in the car. I get motion sickness waaaaay too easily.   I think for us it is about a 3.5 hour drive. Will probably be more because we tend to stop a couple of time for drinks and snacks.....and probably potty breaks too for the drinkers, LOL.

Driving again this year from Belleville, Illinois. My mom and me in my focus with the trunk and back seat full of pony stuff to sell. Last year it was a little cramped because it was me, my fiancé, my mom, and my ferret Sweetpea. Plus everything I was selling and our luggage. Lol So, this year much more room and don't have to make room for someone in the back seat.. Just me and my mom sorry to say no Sweetpea :cry: she passed away on Thanksgiving.
