2470 miles, 36 hrs, which is why I most likely will never be there with a boat. The videos on the web look like an amazing event. Do you guys just tell unattractive women to stay home? I have to see one on camera out there

Was there last year without a boat but with a bum leg and still enjoyed all the eye candy. I definitely plan on coming back with the boat but from Pittsburgh, will be a long drive.
