Yes! Some of us need to know if we need to plan in an extra day or six for travel time to/from this.

Oh, I heard from a little bird that we will be back in Tomah, WI for 2017.  That means it is right in my backyard of many alphabet roads.

I could be wrong, though...

I heard it was in Branson, MO.  Almost dead center of the contiguous USA.  I'm not sure I trust my sources though.  ;)

Wow, 2017 may be the first year I don't have:
-- Brand new job
-- Big business trip
-- Relative getting married
-- Relative graduating
-- Just crashed bike and physically incompetent

Hmmm, don't want to jinx that -- so we'll see...
