It would be a shame if you can't make it. But, the knee should definately be the #1 priority ... don't want something like that to keep getting worse over time.

Josh, I will renew my planning duties but I haven't been keeping up and need to know the dates that we decided upon. Get your knee fixed. We got this. Hugs and love you. Take care my friend. We have your back. . .hugs.

Sounds painful. Hope your knee is on the mend! I am looking forward to meeting up in October. I just hope we get thru customs quickly at the airport on the 25th and we are not too jet lagged to get there!

As the Pyrate put so well we did get an apartment after a few weeks of being homeless(long story that I'd rather not get into in public) and I've finally found a job after over a month of looking. Sadly, it only lasts until January. I am alive and well here in the middle of nowhere in Eastern Idaho somewhere. Not exactly sure where but there's mountains, trees, and cattle. LOTS of cattle. And the occasional drunk lady riding a horse through town and no, that is not a joke.

I'm sucking up my 3G bandwidth to check in so I'm gonna make it short. The internet company wants a LOT of money to get internet started sooooo I won't have any until sometime next month. I may be able to check in every now and again when I stea....errr permanently borrow wifi bandwidth from somewhere.

DC-I am still alive and well. You could always have your DF check up on me ya know. Not like she isn't on my FB page.

Anyways, that's it from me for now. Gotta get off here before I suck up all my data for the month Help yourselves to the bar folks and again, welcome to all the newbies!

-B
Glad to hear you are doing well.

And my DF has enough on her plate right now with trying to get this wedding off without a hitch. I'm not about to ask her to add something else to her to-do list.

(and things just keep getting more complicated with the wedding plans. My brother may be backing out of attending (and best man duties) now, and my best friend from Atlanta has said they won't be able to make it either. ugh)

Visitors to the area are always perplexed when I try to explain that you have to go to 2 different types of stores if you're looking to purchase both beer and liquor LOL.

Silly laws.
to the group! We always love having new people join in the fun around here.


I'm personally loving it now that i've found a strip mall nearby that has both a beer distributor and the wine&spirits store only a few doors down from each other. it makes it a lot easier to get the supplies.

I've got at least 2 or 3 of those "open sunday" stores here in York.....that I know of.

Wait.... does that mean we don't get to abuse a GAC at the meet?!!?


Hope things go well and they get things straightened out for you.

Thanks for the offer. All details as set now are on the first post if you want to refresh your memory.


Anybody else interested in taking over planning duties in case Josh has to back out, and Darcy's wedding planning gets crazy again? It never hurts to have another person ready to assist....

Don't worry, even if you don't make it in time on the 25th to spend the day with us, most of us will still be the area for a couple days. I'm sure you would still be able to meet with and hang out with some of the group during your vacation if you want too.

Can I just say that I LOVED Disneyland? There was so much to do, all right there, perfect for my long weekend trip, but in truth I could have stayed longer, there was so much more to do that I didn't get to. I had a blast, wish I was still there, but I am home and back to life now! Forth grade for my little one starts tomorrow! YIKES!!!

Hey everyone, I was told I could check in here cause apparently I'm taking my first solo trip to WDW the weekend of your get together I've done quite a few trips on my own to DL and Paris so solo Disney isn't really new to me - just solo WDW.

So let's make a quick intro here - I'm born in Germany, moved to Upstate NY when I was a kid cause of dad's work, moved back to Germany when I was a teen, came back to upstate to go to college, transfered to UBC Vancouver for my bachelor, got my master at SUNY Albany and am now back in Germany working at a university. I'm a 35yr old female who's been told she looks like 25 and acts like 15 LOL

I usually do Paris as it's just a mere 4hrs drive from where I live and not a 12hrs flight over the big pond. I've first been at WDW in '82 and last in '09, always with my whole family as part of our yearly get together cause we're pretty much located all over the world.

Now, the reason for my trip is also a bit... weird for some people (at least I've been told when I told people). My dad passed away last fall and I've decided I wanna be some place he loved on the day of the anniversary. He absolutely loved the safari at AK (we once did that 5 times in a row LOL). He was a kid at heart, fully embraced the Disney spirit and passed it on to all of us. So I decided that's where my little Figment plushie and I wanna be on that day in memory of my dad.

Anyways. I probably won't hit the parks until the 27th cause I'll be getting in late on the 25th and usually need a lazy day first (hey, I'm a girl, I need to go shopping first things first XD) but if you guys would be OK hooking up on the 27th, and even if it's just for breakfast, lunch or dinner, it'll be cool.... especially since I always feel awkward dining alone LOL I wonder how uncomfortable a character breakfast will be on my own XD

Soapbox off now, already typed too much and you guys probably all think I'm a weirdo now LOL

Hi all, I just wanted to drop in and say hello. I have been lurking, so I have been keeping up with everything. Everything is great in Germany. We are still upset that we won't make the meet in October. We were trying to figure it all out, but it won't work this year. I think we have decided since the Oct meet is out for us, we are going to drive up to Disneyland Paris for Halloween. It is going to be a whole new experience, since neither Erik or I have been and we don't know much about it.

I just to say hey to all the old peeps and welcome all the new ones.
