Emily, you should look into taking a bus there.. it's not too expensive, plus if you get a friend, you can get "Companion fares" which make it cheaper! That's Heather and Mine's plan so far
... Unless Shane decides to come get us on his bike with the banana seat, but that's another story. :P
Anyway, you should ask around to see if anyone else from Montreal is going! I'm sure if somebody is, then they won't mind you tagging along... it's worth a try. Good luck!
