Meet-Up LBS Get together? Cruise or something else??
« on: October 06, 2017, 05:36:44 PM »
Okay, so we've gone back and forth about this a while now, but I finally decided to take the "bull by the horns" so to speak.

Who here would be genuinely interested in a get together?  If so, when and where?  We keep throwing around the idea of a cruise, but are there any other suggestions?  I'm thinking next summer would be good, since we have to have some lead time, and it seems like we have quite a few people here in the education field.

If a cruise,  any suggestions about what cruise line and/or where to go?  And three day cruise,  or a 7 day?  I was thinking maybe a Disney cruise,  so those with younger kids can have a great place for the kids, but I think they are a bit more expensive.   

I don't mind doing some research and comparisons,  but wanted to judge the interest and get ideas from the group first.

Thanks everyone!

You know I am IN, IN, IN!!!! 

One question ... I promised my 23-year-old a vacation for so long.  If she can come along, we will be there.

Never, I think it would be important for families to come if desired. 

Anyone else have thoughts about including families?

I like the idea of meeting up in the summer, but for me... no thanks on a cruise.
I don't do well on cruises (had a bad experience and now have CTSD -- cruise traumatic stress disorder).
Here are some other ideas:

New Orleans Jazz Fest  (April 27- May 6)
Myrtle Beach, SC  (summer weekend)
Rocky Mountain National Park (hey... some summertime glamping)
hiking or relaxing in Sedona AZ  (always beautiful!)

There's always international travel too :)

Dreams are renewable. No matter what our age or condition, there are still untapped possibilities within us and new beauty waiting to be born.

It's no longer all about MLC!  
Pfffffffftttt !

I'm in.  Pretty flexible as to where to go.  Next summer sounds good.

US feels a bit rich for my pockets right now...to be honest, I find it hard to even think that far out at the moment!

Was wondering though if any UK folks fancy a get-together? Drunk lunch somewhere? I'm in Suffolk by the sea and happy to host a LBS + fish, chips and fizz weekend!

Hi Treasur

I'd be up for a UK get-together, and I'm sure a few of the other LBS in my circle would be, too!  Seaside fish and chips sounds really nice. Do PM me and we can throw some ideas around!

BD June 2011
Affair discovered; three moves out and three attempts at return during 2012, culminating in "I'm not coming back" statement. Then DIY separation agreement - Feb 14 - which I wouldn't sign. He moved in with OW in 10/14 and I heard little more. I instigated D in 2016.  He's still living in rental with OW and her D but the cracks are starting to appear.

I have a Vegas family reunion get together the end of the month, and it took 6 months of saving to afford this, then a wedding in Vegas next Oct.,so unless you all want to come to Minnesota (or somewhere close) next summer I probably would have to beg off.

Hey, MN is really fun in the summer.  Lots to do.  ;D ;D
