NC Regionals arrangements

I’m trying to make it to NC regionals but the airfare plus all associated fees is going to cost $600. The cheapest I found was $588 (without food) and that required me to fly to St Louis and drive from there. I can’t justify $600 for a regionals, or really any tournament for that matter, but I want to go. So I can drive if anyone wants me to pick them up on the way and make my drive easier. I would be leaving from middle Georgia Wednesday afternoon/early evening and driving 8.5 hours and stopping somewhere. Then on the 4th of July I would wake up and make the rest of the drive and be to Iowa on the 4th evening time. I don’t expect help with gas or the car rental, but I would like help with the driving aspect if needed. I would stay at an AirBnB on the way. So you get to drive with yours truly, AirBnB it up and play at night and talk strategy leading up to a local on Friday and regionals on Saturday. We would leave Saturday, stop again Saturday night or swap and drive through, then finish the drive Sunday if needed. I can get a SuV if needed and make stops to pick up people. Personally I would think it’s awesome to bring some SE/EC regional players up on the way but I don’t think I can do a 17 hour drive by myself. So...any takers for an awesome 4th of July roadtrip to Iowa?

How important is it that you be back on Sunday? If you can wait until Monday it looks like there's a roundtrip for $200 from ATL-MSP. You'd have to hitch a ride with someone from the cities, but I've gotta believe someone would have a seat for you. (I'm also not sure how close to ATL you are)

I would be flying into Atlanta so I could do that. I’m in no rush to get back I would just have to leave on the 4th, back Monday. I’ll extend my dates but that means lodging Thursday though Monday and an additional day off work, which I don’t care about but is a small factor. I could do the drive after work Wednesday, stop or scoop up and finish the fourth and that really wouldn’t be an issue. I even thought of doing a drive there flight back and flights were still expensive. And I get it, short notice holiday weekend.

Just to save a post in case there’s anyone seriously interested. I would leave middle Georgia the 3rd early afternoon timeframe and drive through Tennessee, through the southwest tip of Kentucky, through lower Illinois, through St.Louis through Missouri, and finally to Iowa.
