Now what?

We just had our deposit returned for our CdA rental house. It seems the owners lost it to foreclosure. Gosh that really sucks for them.

So now we're scrambling for a place to stay 15 weeks out from Ironman.

There are still plenty of options left....25 - 30 miles away from the city. Motel 6 has rooms available, but I'm not very keen on staying at a motel when sleep and comfort will be a premium. Especially a $60-a-night Motel 6.

Crap.

Oh shit. That sucks so bad. I will keep my eyes open. If I have to I will kick Hubby and my parent's out of our place. Ironman come first in this situation :)

Bigun... Let me know if you are still looking. I had a ton of places call me back after we chose our house. Also, much closer than the home you were staying at! I still have some bookmarked, and I know the area very well.

That sucks but it sounds like you have some help. Now I'm paranoid. We should check on our place.

Oh, and what's wrong with 25 miles from the start?! I guess if your an IM newbie... >:-0

Oh man..I am so sorry! A couple of you can sleep on the floor at our hotel...that's all I have. Sorry!

bummer!

That's why I told Johnny Tri that I was glad I did my IM race that was urban rather than remote. Easier and cheaper to fly to and to get a hotel room.

Hope it all works out for you.

You can come snuggle me Bigun!

In all seriousness! Give Blink a call! I'll give up my bed and sleep on the floor! No worries!

DO IT!
