Don't know what the plans are for when we leave here. I do know that we will be taking a full 30 days of traveling. Will have to wait until we get settled where ever we are going and find out if hubby will be still going to sea or be on shore duty. Once we leave here, this will be his last tour to give him 30 years.

Wichita, Kansas

If you can get a better rate to Kansas City, let me know and I will see if we can work out a pick up and ride for you.. It is 65 min from Wichita and 4 1/2 hours from Kansas City
I plan on coming. I will be going south on I-35 thru Kansas City so if need be, I can pick up 1 or 2 from the airport.

I just checked and it would be an 18 hr drive from southern Pennsylvania. I'll have to do some serious thinking about this. I would have to figure out someone to watch the kids while hubby works, too. Or keep them while me and hubby drive to KS.

Anyone else from the northern east coast going?

I'm kinda close to HMK on the West Coast.... I better go look at a map a little closer, but I'm pretty sure, as exciting as this sounds, that it's a little too far for me at the moment. 2010 BC is hosting the Olympic Games, not that it will affect me personally too much, but if you're thinking of doing a West Coast Retreat .... you may have to figure in the rise in costs that seem to happen when the games arrive in any given area.

Hmmm.... just looked at the map, guess I'd better wait until you plan a West Coast one.... BUT..... I really really hope you can pull this one together, as it just sounds like such a wonderful opportunity & a great price as well. I have been to quite a few retreats, usually for the weekend... our guild one here in Canada costs $275 we arrive at 4 pm Fri and leave at 2 pm Sunday and there is no scheduled classes, just do your own thing.
