I wish I was in driving distance…I'm in Arizona Wouldn't be depress unless someone lifted/stole some toys I brought to game with or I had vehicle issues.

Normally 28 hours drive Lancaster to Denver, but this year I'm going to Adepticon instead, just 14 Hours each way.

My husband came home weighed down with new toys.

And guess who paints most of it?

Essentially a nine hour drive for me one way….

Did it in 70 mins this year.
Little woman gas a lead foot on occassion.

Been going to CW since Penn Harris. Been to the other two since day 1.
Wouldn't know what to do if I had to move away.

8-1/2 hrs for me. The drive isn't that bad -- it's the $84 USD in tolls that kills me (total; Ohio and PA turnpikes).

Nothing ventured, nothing gained.

I had to miss it and I'm not happy at all about it.

I'll admit to not missing the 7-8 drive home>

My house to Springfield, Va. – about 4 1/2 hours.

Springfield, Va., to Timonium, Md. – 4 to 6 hours,

Timonium, Va. to Lancaster, Pa. about 3 1/2 to 4 hours

Some will look at that and claim those times from
Springfield to Timonium are excessive.

Well, I used to drive that route a LOT and the times
are accurate for SUMMER VACATION TIME (as in July).

So I changed my route, to avoid Wash/Balt and for a
while that worked very well. But as more and more
folks moved to Central and Northern Virginia, it
became almost as bad, but not quite.

50 minutes more or less depending on the time of day. A few hours back and forth total but saved on hotel bill.
