I got two tickets on the floor, Geddy side, 20th row.
I need lodging and dining suggestions.
There are several motel/hotels right at the venu or with a mile or so.  But the reviews are scaring me.
I guess I should bite the bullet yet once more, but spending alot on a room for one night seems, well seems stupid.
We are about 4 hours away.
I'm 4 hours away, too.  I'll be getting a room in Greensboro.  I don't like Greensboro, because the people are terrible drivers.  They will cut you off and try to get you to hit them.

We are about as far away as you.  There are several places to stay very close to the venue.
We will drive over the day of the show, get cleaned up and a little rest then off to the concert.  We will head home the next morning.
Marriot Courtyard looks like the best place to stay?  Costs more for sure.

Where are your seats?  Narpski is in SC, but I have not heard him say if he is going or not.
Hey Narpski!  You going?

One question.  Greensboro has bad drivers? Whats that supposed to mean?  I mean we have bad drivers here to.

I thought narpski was going. He was going to drive up from Myrtle beach. My husband, myself and two friends are driving from charlotte. It's about a 2 hour drive. Hope to meet some of you there.

I remember the meetup at Fitzgeralds in Charlotte last tour, it was great- anything like that near the Venue?  We are coming from Virginia Beach that afternoon.

I'm driving in from Spartanburg. Campobello to be exact.
I sure hope we can arrange something.  I would really enjoy meeting you guys!
I will even buy you a beer.

Anyone get their room yet?  There are several places very close. But I'm OCD when it comes to hotel rooms.
We need someone from Greensboro to clue us up.

We appreciate the offer, but make it a Diet Mt. Dew for the lady and a Cherry Coke or Cherry Pepsi for myself.  BTW, it'll be her first Rush show - oddly enough, also probably her last, if the rumors are true.

Regardless of what you drink, I look forward to meeting you.  I am bringing wife along as well.
Have you made any lodging reservations yet?

Yep, Not sure what kind of turnout we will have, but many people will have to travel this time and Greensboro is no different.
There are several places right near the venue.  But like i said i'm OCD about hotels and motels.
So, I plan to make the reservations at Marriott Courtyard.  They were always nice when i had to travel for work.

Ah, campobello. One of my best friends lives there.  Right at the foothills of the Blue Ridge.  Very beautiful part of our little state.

I guess you're gonna hold out and see if they release some side stage tickets closer to the show?

Try to wait until the day of the sale.  You can get side stage tickets, hopefully, which ain't bad at all.  You'll be closer than a lot of people who paid a lot more for their tickets.
