    Alternate Meeting Place

    If we get kicked out of the Border's parking lot, here's the alternate meeting place. It's the Stony Brook University P-lot, a large parking area:

    Take a left onto route 347 (east) out of the Border's parking lot.

    Continue down 347 until Stony Brook Road

    Make a left onto Stony Brook road and follow it for ~1.5 miles, going through 1 traffic light.

    At the second traffic light you encounter, turn right onto South Drive.

    Continue through one stoplight on south drive, the P-Lot will be directly on your right hand side. (look for the rexies )

    If it helps at all, my plane doesnt leave until 6 from JFK. SO depending on how far the drive from stoney brook to JFK is, we will probably have to leave your house around 3:30-4.

    Btw- what happened to inferno?

    Put me on that list, hoe, you know I belong!

    By the way, does a 6 hour drive count as "far enough" to qualify for "guaranteed housing"?

    You're right.

    Timdog and I haven't planned an exact location on Saturday morning/afternoon where everyone will be meeting up.

    We plan on doing a public parking lot. Something like....

    One of the parking lots in the Smithhaven Mall
    The empty parking lot where the out-of-business K-mart is on Rte. 347 next to Borders
    The parking lot where the Barnacle is down in Port Jefferson right by the water

    We aren't sure yet, we're trying to think of a place EASY to get to, so it will probably end up somewhere directly on Rte 347.
