I'm thinking of breaking down the meal costs as a certain sum for dinner and a certain sum for all other meals combined. Is there any objections to this? Or would everyone rather have a break down per each meal cost? I won't know the exact amount until you arrive since I am buying some of the food on the way there.

Might be 1 or 2 before I get there Friday since I am going to Springfield (which is north east of Dayton and in the opposite direction of Hueston for me) for the Tim Horton donuts and coffee. I'll make sure I have the brownies done before people get there

We (wife, myself & son) are planning to participate/contribute toward all meals. However, others that are arriving late or leaving early may want to see it broken out. Do you have a rough head count for the various meals, so you know how much to purchase? I'm looking forward to trying those Horton donuts that you keeping speaking of...

The weather forecast looks excellent for the weekend

Saturday & Sunday are showing highs in the upper 70s and lows in the 50s with NO RAIN. Hopefully the Scattered T-Storm predicted for Friday will pass through early (if at all).

I have a rough count for each meal and I will try not to over buy but I'm used to shopping for one, not 16-30 so there might be left overs. I was trying to find an easier way to break it down than to spend hours on a calculator but I might have to. I haven't tried those donuts yet either but have heard they are fantastic. I prefer Cheeze-Its for breakfast myself but am looking forward to trying them.

We had a very good chance for rain here tonight, lasted about 3 minutes and was gone. There's a drought going on in this area and there won't be much fall colors this year, the leaves are dying and dropping already. So hopefully we will be blessed with nice dry weather, it can rain like h*ll Monday

Since you can stay with Alan free and we're going to do the cookout at Brookville Lake, I won't bother getting the 2 campsites. If that is ok with you.

Just my luck. My Empeg goes belly-up a few days before the meet and swapping the hard drive and the cable don't help. I'm going to have to send it off for service. I'm still coming on up though.

OK OK,
so my interest is piqued a little late.
I'd coming from Boston and by myself.
I am wondering if there might be a slot open in a cabin for me and if anyone from Boston / New York might want to carpool there...?
By Car, how many hours is Boston From Cincinati?

That works for me - I've already arranged with him about that.

So, at some point in the afternoon we'll be leaving Hueston and going over to Brookville? I just need to know - I plan to arrive around 11-12ish in the day Saturday.

Ooo - according to Delorme - it is approximately 850 miles - you are probably looking at a good 13- maybe 14 hour drive depending how fast you go. The scenery driving through PA (mountains, etc) is pretty nice.

Yes there is plenty of room. Rob is driving from New York but I wouldn't know how close you would be to him.

Come and have some fun.

Since it is getting darker earlier, like around 8 here, maybe meeting at 11ish at the lodge in Hueston would be a good idea. That way we can take off for Brookville sooner. It is about a 1/2 hour away so the sooner we get there the sooner we can go on boat rides.

I have copies of maps from Hueston to Brookville and I ran a bunch of copies of the trivia questions.

Yeah coming up/down/over from Boston, you would probably win the Driving distance competition.

He said at first he was coming but that was a long time ago, he never signed the sheet so I don't think that he will. Gee, aren't the rest of us good enough

Arghh... a dagger through the heart!

Sniff..

Well, actually, funny y'all should ask. I've been scratching my top and bottom over how to get to/from the meet in an economical fashion for a few weeks now, and it just ain't gonna happen for me.

Driving distance is about 13 hours, if I could stay awake that long at the wheel.

I can fly there and back with a "last minute deal" for airfare & rental car for about C$375 or so, but only from Toronto rather than Ottawa (where I live). Getting to/from Toronto by air is an extra C$600, or 4.5 hours driving each way.. tempting, that option.

But to cap it all off, I've just been striken with a horrible sinus virus, and it will need the usual 10-14 days or so to run it's course. Until then, I'm a snivelling snuffing contageous mess.

Anyone wanna share my cold?

Cheers

Well, ineedcolor is coming from Windsor if that gives you any last minute ideas. I would love to have you come even with a cold as long as you don't sneeze on me. You could even have your own room (as most would want to stay far away from you)

I would even cook you some chicken noddle soup if you come I'm sure that would make the trip worth it.

I want to thank the empeg guys, Rob and Darkstorm for the prize donations, I want to thank those that have offered to help with the grilling, coffee making and picture taking, I want to thank Alan for the offer of boat rides and the use of his campsite, I want to thank Rob for picking Drakino up at the airport and I want to thank everyone else for just coming.

I've been in and out doing the shopping today and still have the hamburgers to make and freeze tonight. I'll be glad when it's tomorrow and I can relax and have fun with everyone

What's the plan for Monday? I'm still thinking about a last minute journey, and need an idea of what's happening so I can consider the return flight/drive times.

Thanks

Well since I was the only one that wanted to go rock climbing, Mark Cushman gave up on it and isn't coming now (something about taking his wife out for their anniversary to someplace she wants to go, likely excuse). I am still on vacation Monday if you want to stick around and find something to do outdoors like hiking or biking or climbing.

Your welcome!

I would like to thank you for doing all the leg work!

OK, This may be my last post before heading out tomorrow morning. Lately, I've been having trouble keeping the Viggen under 90 MPH. So, I may be there sooner than necessary to pick up Tom at the airport. Since I have about 70 bottles of beer, I may stop by for a few minutes to drop off the cooler so you guys have something to do.

Once I pick up Tom, I figure we will be there around 8PM or so.

Dave Costa. I will drive you if you really want me to. Laura and Tom (Drakino) have my cell number. If I am not online, get it from them and give me a call if you want a ride. I am planning on leaving NY in the 8:00AM hour. It took me 3 hours to get to the Boston meet, so you may have to leave very early.

Can't wait to see that car and go for a spin. I was just picking up someone at the airport the other night, a word of caution, you are not allowed to park in the pickup zone now unless they are waiting for you. I got to make 8 trips around waiting for the people, but who cares when you have some nice music and a nice ride to drive. So don't get there too early.

Mm.. okay. No climbing (too much gear for the plane ride if just us for an afternoon or whatever). Some local exploration sounds good for Monday. I suppose I'd better pack a sleeping bag or something.

Going for boat rides on Saturday I have no idea where to go climbing but if you do I am game for Monday or you could just bring a bike. Dayton has miles and miles of paved trails or their are some mountain bike trails nearby that I wouldn't mind checking out. Or bring your hiking boots.

We'll find something to do Sunday. Anyone like to ride horses?
