Why would that prevent anyone from driving anywhere?

I will no longer be able to make the trip to Phoenix. With the government shut down I will still be working, but will no longer be getting paid till they figure this mess up. Oh well I guess. Maybe next time.

Majority of people will be going home unpaid and no vaction. Soldiers will still go to work but not get paid. A select few will also go to work and not get paid. I work on an Army base thats whats been told.

Hell no, I'm going, 2,400 miles for the best CAMARO PARTY of the year. I started putting money away right after fest last year to cover. I hope it all works out and hate the thought of anyone having to miss becouse of this. There will be plenty of pics & videos this time around to share with those at home and all C5 members!

Shutdown or not, I'll still be there. Military retirement checks should not be affected. But as for my current day job, if they cut my pay I just won't be able to buy as many goodies at the fest

Im one of those who still have to work and technically not get paid... also if anyone takes any kind of Leave (paid vacation time), it will become Leave without pay. BUT I moved my normal days off around and the three days i'll be at the Fest are all normal days off. So i'll still be there.
