I'm glad you're all interested in getting together!
I'm REALLY geographically challenged, so one of you can figure out a midpoint for us.

The Southeast Region includes: Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, Virginia, & West Virginia

I think it would be cool if we could find a fiber fair or something where we could meet.

I'm pretty geographically challenged too! Tomtom is a life saver for me! I really need the nice machine to tell me to turn left here.
You know what might help us find a central location is if everyone says where they are from( of course if you don't feel comfortable that's fine). I am pretty sure not all the states in our region are represented right now.

I am in Southeastern VA.

We have a Garmin and I hate the thing! It's always telling us wrong directions and wrong turns. I'm always threating to throw the thing out the window while we are driving but it has helped some I guess.

I'm in New Orleans, Louisiana. I don't know if it is exactly in the middle or not ( I suck at geography ) but wouldn't Tennessee be some where near the central location? I could be way off on that but I thought that would be close to it. I know for me it takes about 7 hours to get to Tenn. but I don't know about from any where else.

Well, if you look at the US Map, it looks like Alabama is the center, but Georgia and Tennessee are close to the center as well.

I'm just really bad at knowing what cities are where without studying a map very closely. Maybe I should get out my old Road Atlas. It's easier than Google maps, because I can see the whole state on a HUGE page.

When I looked at the US map it looks like somewhere around Fayetteville TN or Chattanooga TN would be right in the middle. I don't know if they have fiber fairs near those places but that is just what I can tell.

YAY! I'll be watching the mail!

You sound a lot like me, I was married at 18 too, and we are still married (at least at this point). It's never easy and of course DD really doesn't know what she's getting herself into.
I'm trying to deal with it, I still feel like I've been beaten up. But it helps soooo much to talk to you all about it.

Sorry forgot to say where I am at... I'm in Stafford VA, it's north of Fredericksburg and south of Northern VA....

But when we meet up I will (hopefully) be in West VA... Hopefully we have found a house by then.... It's in the panhandle of West VA, right near the VA border...

Looking over at Tori School map I was thinking the North Carolina, Tennessee, Georgia border looks like the middle, but I don't know what there...

Oh and about the TomTom commericals... yes dh says "DawnDawn" where do I turn.. it was funny the first few times...

Are you guys thinking of your whole family coming? I was just thinking that I can plan something for school where ever we go.
