I think you can upgrade your passport for $2.....oops that's baseball seats.

Walgreen's has a sign about quick & authentic looking passports. Maybe Sushi can post bail for us at O'Hara!

Gee Dove, I lived on airfield Mohave. It was my dad's airstrip. Except for the dirt storms, it's not so bad.
(Sandstorms have 80 mph wind; Dirtstorms have tornado's and 100 mph wind)
I don't think we should go there for our trip though. Maybe the glass walkway will be finished and we can go to the Grand Canyon.

For those NOT in the great white north, they do need a passport


It is now required for ANY travel outside of the U.S. Even to go to Canada, eh.

My passport is ready to go!

I would love to meet in Las Vegas - it is a shame that they don't have a Cooking Convention there.

I've met tancowgirl, and Poutine. I feel like I know most of you so well though that if we ever did meet there would be squeals of glee and much wine and giggling.
I like Diney idea.

Actually, I am a member of another borad and we actually had a small picknic last year. There were 4 men that came, well you can imagine how much fun we had,

Gee this all sounds exciting. Getting together somewhere...somehow....
I am fairly new to this forum but love reading everything. I have yet to meet anyone but would love to. I am in MA. I travel during the summer in an Airstream. I will be heading south to GA in June. Plan to spend time in SC and other places. So I guess I am saying....MA, GA, SC for a quick get together.

Theme parks and festivals would be to way to much of a distraction after all we want to see each other I also think cost must be considered because for some folks it would be harder to pay to go somewhere rather pricey rather than some place that is not in season so to take advantage of off season price cuts etc.Getting there may also be a problem for some folks so an elaborate car pool for those who would drive might need to consider picking up someone or 2 on the way to split gas etc.
It could get complicated but I hate to leave anybody out.It would need to be a place with a great airport so if any of our friends around the world wanted to make the trip its easy for them also.Next consider time of year so the weather is more favorable no snow storms etc to hold people up.Next mayby booking a block at an hotel saves money and everyone is in the same place and how many days I think it would take at least 3.
Lastly alot of personal visualization that all will go just as we want it to go.

cjs, I go to Grass Valley/Nevada City many times a year. Our Forest Supervisor's office is located there. Just in case you did not know I work for the Tahoe National Forest. In fact, I will be in Grass Valley this coming Thursday (03/22). A couple of weeks ago I spent a week in Sacramento and had lunch in Auburn on my way back up to my neck of the woods. We should meet sometime. I will be going down to Sacramento again around April 9th.

appropriate venues: Manitowoc Wisc...largest kitchenware store; Somewhere else in Wisc is the Wolf factory, and in Miss. is the Viking Factory. Perhaps we should meet at the BettyCrocker or Pilsbury Hall of Fame.
Perhaps best to start regionally.

How many Mid Atlantic members???

My passport is always ready to go! I lead food and wine focused tours... I'm doing one in France in November. Anyone want to go with me?

New Orleans would get my vote for where to meet -- but NOT at Mardi Gras OR Jazz Fest. besides, nOLA really needs tourists to help it get back on its feet. IACP is going to be there next April.

imho, DisneyWorld is way too expensive a place to go and to many distractions from why we're there. Getting together would be (I'd think) "The Event!" There's bound to be at least some people you'll want to hang out with!
