I have been watching the posts and I know that drive times can be a problem no matter where you are. there is an option that many don't know about for attending populace meetings in this modern age. Only takes a a two computers with web cam and the 711.com relay to be there...
Of course this is a relay for the deaf but runs through the high speed internet, I use it to speak with my son at school since he is 2 hours away.
This could be an option for meetings that are weekly like A & S Nights or populace and it saves gas. Perhaps this will help.

The distances involved are ALL in excess of an hour, in some cases as much as two or more. I do not wish to travel 1 1/2 hours to a populous and 1 1/2 hours home, but I will if this action continues. Other shires have farther to travel than we of Crossrode Keep would. Blacklake has a 2 hour trip and Mendersham almost as long. Imagine how your involvement in the Dream would change if you were told that you had to make a 2 hour trip to a meeting or practice or seminar and another 2 hours to go home. Even if you had had a perfectly viable place at your home.
But even at that it is a secondary issue. The main issue is that 3 of the 5 shires involved are proposed to be disbanded for no valid reason stated. The 3 shires are all in full compliance with all Corpora and Kingdom law and feel we are being disbanded for the convenience of a few. We are taking steps to counter this and are willing to take this issue to the BoD and beyond.
