Carpooling up there sounds like a great idea,it would certainaly save gas money for all. Although both my sister and I are excited of the prospect of a new, large show, we wont be able to make it until the August show. We are located just south of Youngstown, Ohio, where are you all at? One thing you might want to consider: my sister and I are both teenagers, but both hightly interested in animals. Shes into the herps, im more into the exotic critters at the shows. We both like snakes so its a win win situation there. let me know about any info about the show and whatever else you think i might need to know. thanks!
