Does anyone have any good recommendations on where to stay for MIMS (other than at David Barra's home)

    You are of course most welcome here... but I must warn you that the 93+ miles between my little bomb shelter and south cove will take all of 2 hours (without traffic).
    Choice of fold out, air mattress or hammock!

    Can we sleep on your 22' Zodiac? I'm sure Bob and I would have plenty of room! Just shuttle us down to the start in the morning if you would please...

    Now that sounds like a plan!

    Dave, do you take Irish? There might only be 6 of us.

    Try the Club Quarters near Albany St. I stayed at the Marriott that's right near the North Cove - a good place, but you have to have hit the lottery to afford it or, like me, have a brother who flies to China all the time and has 8 zillion Marriott points.

    I stayed at the Club Quarters in Wall Street last year- walking distance (if you want) and reasonable. It was nicely in the middle between my starting place and where I needed to drop off my crew. Good subway access, too.

    I just checked out Club Quarters and it looks very good. It is not available the first night so I would have to arrive a day later on Thursday. I have a hard time adjusting to time zone changes (coming from the west) but that might still be enough time.
