I thought we were planning to leave on Saturday shop hopping along the way and either pushing to get to Branson that night or finding an empty parking lot to crash in (JK) before driving the rest of the way.  You know better than I if it's doable in a day with shop hopping involved.  I'm ok with leaving in the dark that morning!  (can I spend the night Friday??  )  And since there won't be any time wasted stopping for lunch... we should be able to make good time!

I wasn't very clear.  If you arrive a day early you will need to pay for that day.  If you arrive early on the check in day, the rooms should be ready.  If they aren't, you can always set up your machines and start sewing until they are ready

Gini is right we do have to pay for our room if we arrive on Saturday.  However the person I have spoken with at Stone Castle has told me that they will give any of us that arrive early a good rate for the extra night.

Oh, thank you so much for the explanation.  It's a 10 hour drive for me, not including stopping, so I'm planning on spending the night in either Tulsa or Joplin,  which should put me in Branson noonish.  I don't need to check into the room, but would love to set up my sewing area.  I'm not at all eager -- really I'm not!  Hah!

Brigit-carol, Joplin is only an hour or so from branson,  if you aren't too tired just roll right into branson and have dinner with us the night before.

Gini - thanks for the invite.  I'm going to play it by ear.  I haven't driven that long a distance on my own for 20+ years, so don't know how my body will react.  I might peter out by OKC or still be wide awake by Joplin.  If so, I'll continue on.

Yes, Nana, it's time for another money update.  I sure hope my envelope reached you.

Darlene, so glad you're coming.  I'm guessing some girl time will be good for you!

Darlene you are fine.  I knew that you would be running a little late due to the family crisis.  Hope all is well and am anxiously waiting to see you.
