A friend and I are planning on taking my new van for its first road trip about Mid March. She's not yet quite the plant fanatic I am, but when I get her to Dabney's in Memphis, she'll be hopelessly hooked, I'm sure. It's a good thing my new van is 2 ft longer than my old one, because we're going to need all the space we can get to haul home our treasures.
I was wondering if any of you want to meet in Memphis or Coldwater MS about mid-march? I know a lot of you are meeting in April. Unfortunately I'll be busy with a charity event so I won't get a chance to get away again until after June. So it's got to be now or never for me.
I have a few plants I can trade and may have more by mid march if the weather remains warm. I posted on the Plant Exchange Forum what I have to trade, so if you're interested, you can check that out.
Brandy and I are really excited about this road trip. We're eager to gather up all the plants "Pux" will hold. (My van is named Puxatawney Phil since I bought him on groundhog day. LOL) Those of you who have travelled with me before know that no matter how full I get the van, I can always fit in one more haul from one more nursery. And there's the luggage rack too. I can tie Brandy up there if I need her seat to haul a few more plants. LOL
We haven't settled on a date yet. We're waiting to see what the weather will be like, but we're planning for sometime around mid to late March, and probably on Mon or Wed. If you can get away to join us, let me know.
