Not goin to Columbia. And it isn't a long one for just a few hours. We drove down on a Sunday for Myrtle Beach in July and drove back when it was over... same with Hamburg... drove up did show and came home. The only one we stayed overnight for was Tinley because it was sooooooo far lol. But we went for both days.

We left a 2:30 am and got there around 8:30? No traffic that early in morning. We took 95 to get there as opposed to the eastern shore. We came home that way. A little longer but traffic played a part

Hamburg is amazing.... Tinley was a little bigger but just as crowded... there is no elbow room and you have to keep making rounds non stop or else you will miss out on something... we missed out on a good deal but it wasnt there the first 5 times we rounded... as soon as we noticed it, someone had spoken up before us. But it was worth the drive...

just got back after leaving at 445 this am(not dst). took 5hrs and 10 min there. i will say i probably wont be doing it again. it was a huge show and the venomous vendors made it worth the trip (pretty crazy looking at a 6 ft gabbon through an 1/8" piece of plastic) but, honestly while it was about 10-15 times the size of the richmond expo it was just a lot more of the same stuff. probably 10-15 snakes i would have bought had i not had a gf and 1 spectacular male king rat that i should have picked up for temperament alone but alas not today. all in all it was 12 hrs of driving for 2 hrs of show. got some good deals on dry goods and supplies but i'm beat.

Yea when you travel for shows you gotta prepare yourself for the driving... I have to say that they are fun experiences when you go though. But there are some shows we won't go to again just because we felt it isnt worth the drive/tired the next day crap.
