It's Early, But I Need A Dewey Fix - GRTB 2021 Discussion Thread


Recommended Posts

GRTB Home Page

We are planning to go to Dewey this year if the COVID numbers are going in the right direction and the stars align.  I just looked and due to the current rental car shortage nationwide, rental cars are pricing out from roughly 600-over 1000 dollars per week.  I expect that to change continually until we go, but it's something to be aware of if you are flying in and need a rental.  Before I pay that for a rental I would fly in, buy a new car and drive it home to AZ afterward.  If prices are still like that, I will most likely borrow a car from one of my brothers who live in MD

So - who is going? I'm ready to sit on the beach at Camp Cocktail!  We are all way overdue!

Looking forward to seeing you! It feels like it's been forever. 

It has been forever.  Len will be having another surgery on August 26th.  This time; knee replacement.  It will be his 4th surgery in two years, not counting the other two previous surgeries two years prior.  It has been a long road for him.

Poor Len has been through enough.  I hope a new knee means that he might be able to join you at the vending site for a little while.

Me! (Raises hand)

I'm doing Mountain Hounds  and GIG too.

That's awesome, Mary Pat.  I feel like there should be a medal if you do the Trifecta! :lol

I'm going and I can't wait to get back to the beach again!! I won't be bringing my Razzy because she is getting to old to travel, but my roommates will have dogs for me to borrow :) 

I'll also be giving a talk on Greyhound Amber Alert at the Convention Center. Looking forward to seeing everyone!! :gh_bow

Plane tickets purchased! Woo Hoo! 

Also - for anyone traveling Route 50 who isn't aware, the Chesapeake Bay Bridge is now a cashless toll. You are required to either use EZPass / IPass etc, or the toll facility will mail a bill to the address that your vehicle license is registered to. This isn't a big deal if using your own vehicle as you will just receive a video tolling bill in the mail if you don't have an EZ Pass in the car. (It's not a violation, just a bill for the toll.)

For those using rental cars, check the tolling options for your rental car company in advance.  Most of them charge a hefty administrative fee in addition to the actual toll.  I ordered an IPass from the Illinois Tollway to use in the rental car as Illinois does not charge additional monthly or quarterly  fees for out of state residents to have a transponder. The IPass will work anywhere on the EZPass network and there have been a few times it would have been convenient for us to have while traveling instead of getting stuck in a long line to pay cash at a toll plaza. 

Days to GRTB

The husband and I plan on attending GIG and GRtB this fall. 

Hopefully all goes well... I think the girls will really love the adventures!

I was just saying that I should make my motel reservations. :yay

I'll also be shamelessly trolling for someone to hold Mercury during the Dewey Goes Pink 5K.  This year, they sync up again. :yay

I got my flu shot today so that it would be effective for the flight from AZ to GRTB.  Does anyone know if this year's flu shot updates the tracking chip from the COVID shot? 

Also - Check out the GRTB site for this year's  GRTB T-Shirt if you didn't get the email.  Awesome shirt this year!

They are updating the chip in your next testing procedure.  Might take a while to find it.

Dewey Goes Pink often lines up with GRTB.  I'm coming back from a summer of plantar fascitis and slowly working my way back to 3.1 miles.

My real concern is Mercury.  I might be able to leave him with the woman with whom I'm staying but I hate to impose.  I can pay for houndie sitting but he doesn't enjoy and just stands there waiting for me to retrieve him. :(
