Ride from Okanagan

It's that time of year again, and I currently have an empty car. I don't know if the one guy that was supposedly going, is even going to be here in time, so there's up to 4 seats open.

Anyways, the usual thing from last year applies. Don't bring illegal things/substances with you, since it's bad for your health. I don't mean bad as in the substance will kill you, bad as in that I will as the border guards take my car.

The route will essentially be the same as last year:

Take I-5 south to Exit 182 onto I-405 south, take Exit 13B west (NE 8th Street westbound) go one block and make a left turn on 110th Ave NE. Go one block to NE 6th Street, turn left on NE 6th then proceed to Meydenbauer Center’s parking garage entrance on the left.

Although tack on the extra length of taking the Highway97 south down from kelowna to get to the i-5. Timing, I hope to POSSIBLY keep the hotel time down to the same, so we'd arrive thursday afternoon *mostly for me because driving for that long is tiring*, and leave sunday. *check out in the morning so we wouldn't all have to pay for the hotel room another night, though this is negotiable* And be back in canadia laaaaaaaaaaate sunday night/monday morning. *depends if pax has an extra-hours thing or not*

So to summarize:

Leave okanagan valley by thursday morning, hit seattle that afternoon. Checkout sunday morning, and finish off the stay at pax and leave that afternoon and get back home late that night.

If the schedule doesn't suite some people, that's fine, can always be reworked. I already know the route, so barring the mishap of last year of me being an idiot and following traffic, assuming THEY know where they're going.....we should be fine.

Oh and there's also one extra guy *kato arabel on here I think* that'll be in the room, so hopefully 4-6 of us can share the accomodations and keep the bill down *although if you order room service, you pay for it....although if you work it well, like KyleG and his friend did, you might be able to score us free pizza for making the delivery guy late!*

    And we also all split the cost of car gets alright mileage, but still.

    *I keep all the receipts of filling up on the way to/from seattle, and we just split it among however many of us there are in the car.

    *waves hand wildly in the air* Me and Andy may be needing a ride. Can you help us out? One other question: Is this year's car going to have the FruitFucker on it? :P

    They cast a shadow like a sundial in the morning light. It was half past 10.

    I'm from Penticton. Where's this thing being held anyways? Seattle you say?

    UPDATE: Ok, I'm coming, but can I bring one or two of my friends too? Is there room? They'll pay their share of course.

    The second I heard about the Smash Bros. Melee tournament me and my friend Yanez were game for PAX. I must go. Pick me plz!
