Any chance you can grab me a brochure or two fishfreek, to bring back home? I think that would be a good reason to go down..

I'm just checking out the Biology program at Bridgewater College Mom, I'll be back later today, it's quite a drive down the road..

I would suggest making it a legit reason. If you are having reasons to doubt your parents' interest in this venture, then I would suspect they would be extremely unhappy if you decided against telling them.

Visiting a far away lfs and a college would be the best way to bring it up. You're better off skipping it if it causes distrust and wouldn't be worth it. Tell them you're talking to two pastors on the same site and they both recomend a guy called "freak". lol I would take Aaron's advice and let them call him if they want.

Tell them Franklin is doing the online dating thing and you wanted to check out the references on his girlfriends.

Oh yeah, now you're talking! Sorry Aaron, I won't be able to attend. I wish you all the best time! Also, don't forget about the gathering at The Fish Store in October (ask Bernie about it!), but the date has not yet been determined.

Have a great time!

Thanks for the advice 24..I dunno what to do.. I know this isn't the place to vent parent angers...so I won't do that now..but we'll see I guess.

I would really like to go though, since it's so close, and I've nothing else to do, but I don't wanna get them uncredibly upset at me either if they found out...which I don't know how they would.

I like the college visit, that, they'll go for. Then, a talk about visiting a really cool lfs in the area, and I think it'll work. Might need to get directions from fishfreek to the nearest lfs, so I can go and buy something to take back to MD with me...lol.

Thanks guys, we'll see how it plays out

Just remember, trust is something that takes a long time to earn and only a few seconds to lose. It can take years to earn it back.

IMO, your better off telling them the truth, and either asserting your adulthood (just remember bills suck) and doing what you want, but not lying, or skipping it.

Please dont lie to the parents. Last thing WE (me and Kevin) want is to have some parents angery with us and the site. My idea with the colleges is to seriously take a look at one/some in the area if your interested in doing the college thing.

I agree totally about being on the level about the trip, and give them as much info as possible, like names and addresses and phone numbers if they think something horrible is going to happen. Don't forget that Charlottesville is not that far (UVA) and Blacksburg is not too far away either (VA Tech).

It looks like a frog hair under 2 hours for me - gonna get a T-shirt made up so you will know who I am

I'll be happy to bring a dish or something if needed.

Rev, my daughters are almost 4 so they will be thrilled if you bring your little girl.
