    We will hold on hope it will get done... Maybe you can bum a ride with @Ryanb if he goes and you haven't received the good news from AMCD?

    Mmm ok, I might go with that, but I'm sure @eman1200 and @N659HB will be along shortly to cancel out your reasonableness. :D

    as long as there's a tasty burger wherever our destination is, I honestly don't care what you call it. it's all "the south" to me. should be it's own separate country.

    Wish I were, love to meet all you crazies, but I'm in the Birmingham area, and I rent so a bit too cost prohibitive.

    I guess Virginia is not Southeast???

    I’ve unfortunately been signed up for ‘brunch with Santa’ that day at any rate.

    I think Norfolk and Richmond probably still are, but we gave away everything north of Kings Dominion to the North after The War.

    Dang, I'd love to. I like the Runway Cafe and it's a short hop, but we're hosting a Christmas party that evening.

    You know, hard to tell right now, but I can't even imagine the point spread being much. I'm sure Bama will be favored. But ole Nick, he knows how important this game is. Always a good game regardless, but this may end up being one of the best. Like they say, that's why they play the game. We'll see Mully, we'll see. Hell they both may get into the National playoff final 4.

    I'll be there. Booking our 152 now to do a little 15 minute solo from CEU. I might be taking my written at USaeroflight at GMU that day anyways. Waiting to hear back if they have the 2nd or the 16th available.

    Not sure how I missed this part of the post from earlier... but #2 sure does feel pretty good right now :biggrin::biggrin::biggrin:

    In all seriousness I don't think any of the top 6-7 have stood out this year, and anyone can lose any given Saturday.

    DAMNIT!! I always miss these. I'll be on an AA flight out of CLT that day to St Lucia for my honeymoon. Otherwise, I would be there. I swear I will make a southeast POA get together one of these days....

    Yeah, I know it's a tough choice. Going to an island paradise with the woman of your dreams or hanging out with PoAers. Let me think.........
