Hi,

Can you post the tentavie start time for this Bus ?
I am in Hartford, CT. I would be attending the event. I know couple of other friends would also be joining from Boston. We are still discussing Car vs Bus.

Posting a tentavie time & route will help people like us. (I know this can always change)

Cheers !!

Default Tentative times

Hello sajid,

As of now, we plan to start from Woburn, MA at about 6:00-6:30PM. Assuming a 12 hour drive (including all the stops), we expect to reach DC by about 6:00 AM on Sept 18th and start our return journey at about 5:00 or 6:00 PM on the 18th.

As for the route, the most direct route would be Rt 95 to Rt 90(via Framingham, Hartford, New Haven) to CT.

We will have a bus from MA only if we have enough people (about 40). Otherwise, we plan to rent one or more 10-12 seaters and drive to CT where we will join the CT group in their bus.

This is a tentative plan. We can only make concrete plans once we know the actual number of people (and their locations) who will be joining us.

If you want things to change, all you need to do is get on the bus. (Seldom you get everything arranged for you like this.)

If you want to wait and be mistreated for 10+ years while waiting for your green card, stay at home.

Your choice.

(I'm not arranging this, but I hope people make use of this opportunity to change theirs and other's future lives to the better.)

swede for the simple straightforward lines that hit the nail on the head.
surely people can understand something out so clearly and effectively.
or maybe not???

As of right now time and place are tentative. We are trying to find how many ppl are interested in going on the bus. Based on that, we will be deciding what is the best place. Woburn, was suggested because it has a big park and ride area. Just be in touch and we will keep everyone updated.

On the other hand, are you planning to join the local chapter meet on the 26th of august i.e sunday.

Please let us know.
