I'd sure love to go to the Midwest VapeFest in St. Louis on Friday, Aug 20th to Sunday the 22nd. However, I'm not sure I can swing the airfare. I'm toying with the idea of driving a rent-a-car, preferably carpooling, possibly with a minivan (depending on how many would be interested in joining me). I haven't thought it all through yet, but want to broach the idea here to see who might be interested. Coming from my base in southeast Florida, the natural route would be up the turnpike through Orlando, connecting with I-75. Google says that it's about a 20 hour trip. I'm up for driving all day and night on Thursday into Friday (as long as at least one person can share the driving duties), but I'd be open to crashing* on Thursday night at a motel along the way. * That's a term from my youth, meaning sleeping at a place on an informal basis, not a motor vehicle accident. Not sure if younger generations still use the term in this way. I also would be interested in sharing a double room. Please post your reactions. Thanks!
