Unless you really enjoy the cold weather bring your car. I cannot stress this enough. Even those at slocum, although not crippled, have to stand at the bus stop in the snow. Its definately doable, some of my friends did it last year. Other than slocum, unless you get one of the few places right next to school, you will need a car. Especially from california, thats where I am from. What part are you from? Anyway, anymore questions I will be more then happy to answer.
