Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

You need ~8 months to get all that squared away, Jared? Aweful long time. The major hang up I have with waiting that long is that I'm afraid that the majority of people would forget all about it as time goes by...shit would come up...whatever...basically I'd be worried that everyone would bail out. It's difficult for me to plan so far in advance...I may be dead by then...who knows where I'll be by then...

I'm thinking some time around oct or nov...

Congrats, K3.

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

well, if we are meeting in chicago, we would have to probably meet as late as november to avoid the cold weather, and i have sports and school and work that could carry on into november, so i wouldnt have time to come. i just couldnt come anytime this fall, and we dont really want to meet during the winter, so spring would be the best time for me.

i think spring is the best time too. its just too late in the year already...not enough time to plan out a good meet up place or what to do.

maybe we can do it twice. not really a big deal...maybe some of us can meet up sometime on october or something and we can have a bigger event next spring. i know quite a few people with Z's aroudn the area. if we went next spring i could atleast hand out some flyers or soemthing and give those people enough time to plan. hell maybe Georgy can get some time off and broke can get some time off to make the trip...

Souns good. We'll see what happens then. Maybe we'll plan something out in Jan or Feb for the following May or June.

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

it would be even better if we all met in st. louis, its more in the middle because chicago is far north.

st louis is like a 6 hour drive for me. :P

in comparison, would you (LLZ) and probe be traveling northwest or just straight west to get to chicago???

i say we meet in champaign...its a city with things to do and not bumper to bumper traffic like chicago. not to mention its much cleaner and less gloomy.

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

Well...St Louis is about 5 hrs away. I don't remember off hand how far away Chicago is but I think St Louis is closer. Champaign...no clue what state that's in. Know it's a province in France where ALL carbonated wine known as "Champaign" must be from. Other than that...I dunno.

I don't really care where this happens. I think the mid-eastern side of the U.S. would probably be best for the majority of people on this site. This might change over time as more and more people from other sites join the parade, but for now, I think keeping it to the eastern half of the U.S. is probably best for the majority.

I'm up for info, though...

oh come on...champaign is smack dab in the middle of illinois. it is where U of I is so there is lots of things to do for the younger crowd. i figure that would be a fairer drive for us all.

it will cut freaks trip in half, LLZ trip will be shorter than St Louis or Chicago, and it will make my trip 3 hours longer.

Re: FINALLY...56K killer (maybe)...

cut my trip by about 3 hours, mapquest says it will take me 7 hours to get to champaigne, so it will probably take about 6. this might sound like a plan.
