    The location has been voted upon.

    It would appear that we are moving forward with the Myrtle Beach plan.

    So, the next logical question (and this will require time to answer I know) is who is planning to attend.

    *skips ahead in his calendar*

    Alright, if I got this correctly, the dates are:

      Wednesday, May 28
      Thursday, May 29
      Friday, May 30
      Saturday, May 31
      Sunday, June 1

    Let’s get a head count.

    List your ability to attend and your arrival date.

    Edit: The week has changed

    I can be there. Fun Fact June 6th is the date of D-Day in 1944 and my birthday in 1977 🙂

    I’m likely but am unsure about spending 5 days with you losers. I am thinking more along the lines of 4. Leaved Wed after work and truck it on in. Be fresh as a daisy Thursday morning, and let the ladies know I am THERE! WOOO!

    Or, drink some beer and have you guys phyuck with me whilst I sleep them off. *shrug*

    Its looking unlikely due to the cost, but more research must still be done. Feel free to try and find budget flights from the UK to anywhere near.

    I would wager the best prices would be Heathrow-Dulles, but you never know…..

    Remus, what’s the best airport for you to go out of?

    That’s an AWFUL long time… Wednesday – Sunday is a definite “NO”. MAYBE leave after work on Thursday then drive all day back on Sunday.

    This is looking more and more like “Not doable”.

    Well, I’m kinda tied to Vlan’s schedule. I wonder if the train is an option. Be easier than driving, anyway….

    Sorry I can’t make it this time, folks. Things with the arts collective are fairly outrageous at the moment. Too much drama to juggle back home while being out of town. 🙁

    Oh, yeah, and now I actually have a day job. That’s another challenge.

    I really miss you guys and Markshire.

    That’s just the dates the location is ours.

    I believe Shawn and I are planning on heading down Thursday (really early AM) for Thursday evening arrival.

    Bad News. After trying every way we can think of, Vlan and I can’t make it work. The cost is too high, and the travel time is just too great. We’d both love to go, but work and family makes it too hard to swing in the time we would have.

    There were basically 3 options:

    Drive – 12 hours minimum each way, with Gas at $3.50 plus (Well over $200, just in gas), and Vlan and I couldn’t leave until Thursday evening at the earliest, and had to return Sunday. That’s like 48 hours max. We discussed it, and it just don’t work.

    Flying – Price was $250 pp. and then parking, etc. Again, it wasn’t really an option.

    Train – Was actually MORE expensive at $350. Now I see why Amtrak is going bankrupt… Hard to get customers when you’re slower and charge more….

    G – I’d love to see the place and if things were different, fine, but……

    🙁

    mule can’t. He’s sans internet right now. I just moved into my new place in maryland and apparently comcast is going to take their time hooking it up… about 2 weeks worth. God I love monopolies. I am not even sure how you sent me an IM.
