Alabama Action-Hitting the Road

<p>Well we are off on a week long adventure. Leaving Cali tomorrow and arriving in tuscaloosa on Sat August 7 to move my son in....never got any info from AA....so I am wondering if one of my wonderful CC friends might be able to forward the info to me...we will have internet access at most of the hotels we are staying out....Let me know and I will send you our email addresss....thanks and see ya next week!</p>

<p>Bassettmomma d got her letter from aa on Wednesday but we are in tn; is your son a member of the aa 2010 facebook page ? They've posted most of the stuff there. D got an invite to the page in a ua email to her ua email account. Safe travels!</p>

<p>I think there's a lot of people taking an extended vacation before starting AA.</p>

<p>We got an email from Jami saying things would be posted on the Bama website, and I found it.</p>

<p>I'm not computer savvy, so I don't know how to do links, but here's how you get to it.</p>

<p>Go to honors.ua.edu. There will be a pull down under University Honors, where you can choose Alabama Action. At the bottom of the page, there's a highlighted sentence you can click on that will give you a 21 page PDF document, the same that we were emailed from Jami the other day. The sentence reads: Alabama Action 2010 Participant Information and Course Details.</p>

<p>Safe travels and see you next weekend!</p>

<p>Thanks, mom2kids, you are an awesome linker!</p>

<p>montegut... to do a link... at the top of the page there is an address bar... right now it says <a href="http://talk.collegeconfidentialetc%5B/url%5D"&gt;http://talk.collegeconfidentialetc&lt;/a> ... do you see it?</p>

<p>move your mouse cursor up there ..use your right click button and you will see it change color and a little pop up window that gives options of cut copy etc.... left click on copy. </p>

<p>then you go to wherever you want to post ..place your cursor,...right click your mouse and the box comes up with a paste option ... left click on paste and voila</p>

<p>We are in GA and have received nothing in the mail, but did get the email with the info link.</p>

<p>Come to think of it, I don't think we got something in the mail. I think it was just an email with the PDF attached.</p>

<p>And parent, thanks so much for the computer instruction. I will have to mark this post to refer to later.</p>

<p>Dude, it worked! Thank you so much. I get so much needling about my son depending on me for many things, I forget how much I depend on him for many things. He is my computer go-to guy in the family!</p>

<p>Enjoy your trip to AL. The linked information is what was/will be mailed. Also, if your hotel doesn't have free wifi, try Starbucks.</p>

<p>Thanks for the link. Just getting back from vacation. S told me he got an e-mail (loves his new iphone, he was able to keep tabs). I unfortunately did not have info on the particulars, now I do and we can finalize his INVENTORY.</p>

<p>Love the word, INVENTORY. That's exactly what we're doing. I've got my steno pad, I'm old fashioned, and reading glasses on, taking an inventory of everything we're bringing from the clothes and linens department. I think they called them "soft lines" in the old days. Dad, the computer guy, has the spread sheet with all the "hard" items. Hope to make a PDF of the whole list to email to the roommates, who are coming after Alabama Action, so they don't duplicate purchases.</p>

<p>^ nice idea, but I'll bet by the time the list hits the other roommates will have already bought their items. We've been building up this pile for quite awhile. Will have to see what they're missing collectively after everyone moves in.</p>

<p>thanks for the info...we also missed the parking pass so if anyone can tell me if there was anything that came with it that was important that would be great I am gonna call housing tomorrow to find out how we can getg a pass</p>

<p>Did everyone/anyone get their parking passes already?</p>

<p>So...a parking pass? Don't think I've seen that. Did it come in a mailing with other information?</p>

<p>There was supposed to be a parking pass and move-in info mailed at the end of July. We have not seen it. I just left both a phone msj and email to <a href="mailto:moveinhelp@sa.ua.edu">moveinhelp@sa.ua.edu</a> to see what (if anything) we need to do. Will post here as soon as I hear something. Otherwise guess we just drive up front of the dorm at the appointed time and see what's what!</p>

<p>Hi, omg - I think I hyperventilate when I realize how close our departure is!</p>

<p>I wrote under another thread that housing, etc... were sending out packets just this last Friday.....she didn't say they had been sent out but were being sent out...(I spoke to them early Friday afternoon....)</p>

<p>I know that isn't enough time for the mail to reach us before we have to leave . (I've been down this road before.) So, they're holding a packet for my son.</p>

<p>I hope your mail is faster than ours :)</p>

<p>Just spoke to Haley? at housing, the parking passes and packets are going out today. Hope they make it by Friday!
When are you leaving Student? Long road from Calif. - safe travels!!</p>

<p>thanks for letting us know!</p>

<p>We're wondering the same thing. Hoping the parking pass gets to us before we depart!</p>

<p>Everybody be safe as we all head toward Ttown!</p>

<p>Saying prayers for good weather. Remember, drink plenty of water!</p>
