The time has come to begin planning our shopping trip to Portland, ME. I want to get a hotel booked soon, preferably this week, so I need a firm count of who would like to go. 2 girls/room so we can split the cost. Please only commit if you know you'll have the money and are serious about going.
The plan is to leave late Sunday afternoon/evening on August 7th, it's a 5h drive. Return Tuesday night or Wednesday sometime, depending on how quickly/slowly we get through places. May spend the Tuesday night in Bangor to cut the driving down, am mulling that over.
We want to hit South Portland, Kittery, Portsmouth, and probably Freeport/LLBean, I haven't been there in a long time.
I'm trying to get the best hotel rates I can, but it would definitely help if anyone is a CAA member. If you are, let me know. You have to be the actual member though, because most places make you show your card, so you can't use a relative's card.
I have a Costco card and am getting a card for Sam's Club.
