In. Great time last year despite (or maybe because of) the difficult traffic situation on the north HH parkway.

Possibly in. All depends on how soon I can get home from the previous night. I'll have the GPS and EZpass ready to go, but it's really a stretch to make 11am from my house when I'm sleeping an hour to the North.

Do you think there will be fuel by then? I'll have to fill up on the 30th, after that there are two odd days in a row....

of course i'm in. and since i have the perfect Military Grade urban assault vehicle this time around - the hooliganism may have to be raised a notch!
Fixed!

Should be. It's already getting better. I filled up in Manhattan after work yesterday, with no line.
