Great news on not extending! Maybe you'll be able to get that sand out of yer britches in a few weeks!

Sooooooo... looks like it's going to be a boy hurricane that gets us this week. Earl is going to mess up my Labor Day plans... I just know it! Already got the generator out and gassed up. But if he is going to be more than a cat 1 and is heading our way, I'm outta here. We stayed put when Isabel came through as a tropical storm and that was enough for me. Hope you other East coast dads are preparing!
My wife works for FEMA so she might be joining you out there to ride it out. Best of luck!

We are staying the first night at pop (arrival night from straight thru drive. Then moving over to Bay Lake Tower for 3 nights then to the Beach Club for the final 7 nights. This will be my daughters 8th trip, yep 8th and shes not 5 yet. My wife and I honeymooned at Disney and bought into the vacation CLub on our Honeymoon, we own at the beachclub. I do all the planning for our trips, from reserving, to ADR's to which days what park. My wife just sits back and enjoys the ride. She always says if I die she will have no idea on how to plan a trip.

So either way just wanted to pop in and say I love the thread idea, as it seems on most threads its the women planning and conversing on the boards.
WELCOME FELLOW DIS DAD!!! Now go back and catch up on some reading!! This is the best thread on this site for sure. These guys have huge brains and have to have thier Mickey Ears custom made. Very knowledgable group here. Welcome again!

Still watching the forecasts. Actually I'm more concerned about the assembly line of hurricanes that seems to be forming in the Atlantic. This could play havoc with our trip coming up in 18 days!
The people that choose the names of the hurricanes are trying to level Orlando. What's after Earl? Fiona (Disney), Gaston (Disney) and Hermine (Universal)!!! Conspiracy...I THINK SO!!!!

Cool, another Chi-town suburbanite. Welcome to the club.

We drove down last year and took 57 down and 65 back. Definitely agree, 57 is off the list in the future as that first 6 hours of Illinois was a damper on the trip.

We still like to stop for the night (although I max out at $75 for the bed) as I am typically the only driver. Not that DW doesn't drive, but we both feel that she's a better passenger and I'm a twit.

Middlepat.

Thanks for the welcomes, we are in North Aurora. Plus the quicker I get out of Illinois the faster I feel like I am on vacation. Although the whole borman Indiana border stuff is horrible if you hit it wrong. I too am the only driver as my wife is just afraid she would miss a turn or what not, plus I can't relax well when she is driving, I'm afraid she will fall asleep. So with a couple of Monster Energy's I am usually good to go. We are leaving a day early so if I do have to stop we have the time. Usually we are on the go to get there, but I scheduled this trip to be a little more care free, a real change for my usual commando style.
