    Markshire: The Gathering
    Tuesday, June 8th thru Saturday, June 12th

    With the dates finally nailed down, who is attending this shindig?

    Post if you are attending. For those who can’t make it you can attempt to explain yourself to the group elsewhere on the forum.

    I will be attending since I will be hosting.

    For those who need a crash pad, we have the house or if you are worried the dog will shit on you in your sleep we have several excellent hotels around the area.

    I will be renting a passenger van for the week (9th-13th) to allow us room for traveling. While my car sufficed for 5 guys including myself, we need elbow room for any additional passengers.

    For those who wish to contribute to the rental, PM or IM me or just bring cash. It’s $60 / day plus any mileage over 100 miles for each day. I am in final negotiations with the rental company (client of mine).

    LET THE WHEEDLING BEGIN!

    “Honey….there’s these guys I know from that game you always….loved…so much….”

    *blank stare*

    “And I was thinking….maybe….I could go meet up with them and hang out…”

    *blank stare*

    “C’mon honey…I do that thing you like…”


    Assuming I get there, I gots me a minivan. It has a 7 inch Autobot sticker on the back. Codename: Grimlock.

    I can see her wanting you around but a couple times a year is to much to ask? Hmm.

    Heh, well, the first one was a couple months old when I registered at Markshire (May 2006 or so). Funniest thing, whenever I tried to get in game with s-m-r when the boy was sleeping, the boy would wake up. Didn’t matter what time it was, or how much the kid should have been set up to sleep well.

    Then I disappeared from MS as the second one was coming, and turns out I actually needed to get some work done. 😆 After that, the work of two little ones just kicked our asses. Finally things are settling down to something more normal.

    Still though, heading up two kids that age for any decent length of time solo is an imposition on the other person, no two ways around it. And if I’m gonna drive my ass out to the Finger lakes, I want the full experience!

    The dates are for the entire time I am available and allows for people to say to their wives …

    “Well, everyone else is arriving on Tuesday, how about I drive out on Wednesday and give you one more night?”

    G, Mule and possibly Monty will come up Wednesday, I imagine.

    Everyone else is a crap shoot as to when they will arrive or participate. Sadly, some of the locals don’t get a lot of vacation time so they work during the day and swing over at night.

    G’s asking if we could move it to 2nd week.

    Which is June 8 – June 12.

    I seem to recall some others had issue with Week 2. Let’s get a head count.

    Please post your availability for each week:

    Thom:

    Week 1: Available
    Week 2: Available

    No obvious conflicts with either week, mostly depends on the wife’s call schedule in the hospital.

    My schedule is fluid. Should be available. My house is a tad more settled as well so if people need sleeping quarters Fairport is available.

    Scrambling done. Passenger van rental moved to the new week. BIG ASS VAN.

    All other options are still in flux but fairly certain there won’t be any issue to what’s been planned so far.

    See Scheduled Event Polls.

    2nd week is decided, right (8th-12th)?

    This is looking very possible. The wife is down with it (I believe I mentioned it offhand one day, then later she said, “You should go” Yeah, she’s a keeper. On many levels.).

    There are some wrenches that could get thrown in there. Big one being that we nearly have a contract to sell our house, but the buyers want a quick closing. That means we might need some temporary place to live before our own purchase could go through. If I’m needed round these parts to coordinate parts of that, obviously I won’t be coming.
