So, I am asking those familiar with the area: does anybody know how early I should arrive? Services are at noon.
Thanks in advance.
Newtown is a pretty quiet town, and traffic on 84 should be pretty much non-existant by then. I'd probably shoot for 11am.
I haven't been up there since the shooting though, so it could be a little bit more challenging depending on where you are trying to go.
