Long vacation coming up. Looking to meet ya'll.

Ok. I am graduating from college here in december, and then have a week or so off from all duties. gonna work a cheezy job for a week or two, then go on a good, well-deserved vacation.

The vacation is planned to be utterly "plan-less", with more or less an idea of what I want to do.

I want to drive all over.

Starting here in wisconsin, probably going to start by driving to the east coast, then down to the gulf. drive across to texas, then up to the pacific northwest, then back home to Wisconsin.

i am giving myself aobut 2 1/2 weeks for the whole thing, then will be starting a "real" carrer next feb, probably late.

there are some stipulations.. I want to get to a few friends places on the way... one place in texas, one in south dakota, and a couple on the east coast.


Does anyone want to maybe try and get some meeting times setup? maybe we could have a mini-meet or two some nights. I would like to try and meet a lot of you non-midwesternites. (Canadians, dont be shy, I won't hesitate driving through by the toronto area if anyone there would like to see me :-P

Dates Look Like this:

I would like to around January 14th, setting out east.

I want to be back before febuary starts.

the dates aren't critical, as I could shift them around a few in either direction.

Ok, wrapping up, Is there anyone interested in setting up some mini-meets? (or possibly anyone that has a fold-away-couch that a poor traveler might be able to use :-P)

I'll meet you in Mil-town before you leave. It'd be cool to buy you a beer before you leave on your voyage.

If you decide to come through San Antonio, lemme know. Maybe we'll have a beer too and see if we can spot the pee stain Ozzie left on the Alamo! There's some other cool missions to tour too if you're into that. Btw, you're more than welcome to crash here on the couch before you press on to your next stop.

Wow, Mike! That sounds like a fun trip. I've always wanted to do a summer baseball park trip, hitting every major league park, catching a game at each. Good luck and take lots of pics.

If you can slide down through Delaware, dinner will be on me at the Dover Downs race track-casino. They have the greatest prime rib and you might get lucky at the slots. You can also crash here for the night. I have a comfy couch.
The date is no problem, I just retired from my job last week.

Ok.. lets see where we are now...

JCman - Milwaukee
Veeb0rg - Maryland
argus - San Antonio
dabirdz96 - Philly area
Dodge_Intrepid_Teen - Ohio
2GRT - Delaware
crombie - east coast (suggest possible mini-meet)
titanguy65 - Ohio/Indiana
IceShaver511 - In the same boat with crombie


now.. the thing is, I am going to try and get to South Carolina on a weekend. so a meet in delaware/maryland area would be best on a thursday, so I can drive south on friday.

I will probably, then, leave on a tuesday or wednesday, and go through Ohio on wednesday, reaching philly area wednesday night/thursday during the day.

I am still doing big time planning... but the east coast leg of the trip should be finalized here soon.

Keep poppin suggestions in, as I want to meet some people in other areas of the country too

Lafrad:
I'm ok with any day but crombie and veeborg may be limited so as a plan "B", it might be easier for them to get to Ocean City MD.
It's about 2 hours south of Dover but hopefully closer for crombie.
There is a great little Inn just south of the DE-MD line called the Fenwick Inn. They have a great restaurant -Bar on the rooftop and a cool indoor pool. The best part about it is that it's $29.00 a night on a weekday. So, If you want to meet there, bring your swiming trunks. Anyway, those are 2 choices for a meet in this area of your trip.
Here is a link for the Inn.
