    Hopefully we could carpool. I will be getting my license very, very soon and hopefully I'll be able to give everyone a ride.

    The plan is for Lawn seats, with the other FFs.

    This way, everyone can be grouped together

    In my dreams here, I have seen the destruction of the Jedi. The death of the Republic. I have seen the Temple in ruins, the Senate smashed, and Coruscant itself shattered by orbital bombardment from immense ships of impossible design. I have seen Coruscant, the seat of galactic culture, become a jungle far more hostile and alien than any on Haruun Kal.
    I have seen the end of civilization.

    That's a good question. Bryan and myself were interested in going...but the rest never got back to me. At this moment in time, it is a no...unless we get at least one more person that is interested.

    Ok, it seems to me that problem is getting a ride. To tell you the truth, I don't know if I could either. I don't think my parents will go for me driving into Philly.
