Poll question: If somebody held a meetup Thankgiving weekend, would you go?
I want to figure out if I set up a meetup if enough people could show to be worth the trouble.

Sorry, polls are turned off at Level 3.

7. I'm still pouting
Here you won't get a beer with me just because I live 6,000 miles away, I have a boyfriend and you don't drink, as if those were good reasons. I'm pretty sure that means you don't like me. x(

3. If I was within commuting distance I'd definitely be there.
Of course, I'm on the far other side of the country though. :(

12. A trip out west is definitely on my list.
:)

But it's after I buy a computer/computer repair and take a long delayed visit to Montreal. :(

I will get to travel at some point to meet my DU friends.

10. Good morning, my dear LeftyMom!
I voted maybe..........and maybe I could...

But I'm not sure right now.

I'd love to visit you, and get to meet flvegan too!

But there is a fair amount of family stuff that might be happening that weekend.........

So.......maybe!

We already decided that last night. :D

13. I would love to!
But I have to work the Friday after Thanksgiving, so I probably wouldn't be able to drive all the way up to Sac. :(

But if you come down to LA to visit CAPeggy, let me know!

15. If at all possible, we'll drive down to see CalPeggy.
If we get to do that, I'll let everybody know what day we'll be down.

16. I'd love to but could only do it if it were local to me.
Mrs. V. and I are already both traveling to our home states in Nov. I really need to get to another meet-up, though.

:hi:

19. Sure, as long as they held it at our house.
We don't travel for Thanksgiving, but we like to have company.

We'll get up to visit one of these days. :)

28. Hey, he can ride the ATV with my son...believe me, my guy will be learning
safe operation. I've been drilling it into him for years (about bicycle riding) that when you are screwed up for the rest of your life with a brain injury, it's too late to say "I should have worn my helmet."

(But, of course, does DAD wear a helmet while bicycling, even after having been hit by cars three times? Nooo...of course not.)

29. Oh, I meant the bigger boy.
The one who'll be 35, not the 5 year old. :D

Yeah, my son gets the helmet speech too. I got in a bike accident without one once, and I know it could have been a lot uglier than it was.

32. Well, maybe not.
Actually all I had to do was remind him there'd be snow out here and he could bring his board. :eyes:

34. And if there was no snow, you'd find another easy reason that he
couldn't resist.

I'm doing the photography for your wedding, and you can't tell me no.

20. "Deleted message?" How the HELL could someone have given a hostile
reply to a post like this?

Good thing I gave up on trying to figure people out a LONG time ago, or I'd go nuts.

23. It wasn't hostile, just random.
Some troll was posting random crap on DU this morning, was quickly tombstoned and all posts wiped.

Of course, I wouldn't try figuring out why someone would waste time posting jibberish.

30. Oh, not wasting time, just curious. Such an innocuous thread is hardly
trollbait. But it seems they'll invade even baitless threads, since the wankers have such sorry excuses for what would pass for a life, were it lived by a normal person...

33. I'm done with the parentals by 6 or 7 on Thursday. A meet-up would be fun.
Hypothetically speaking of course. :)
