the last time I left the UK on my own (to Russia) my wife swore Never again (yeah she really missed me, Strange woman!).

so I guess that`s Me out the question.
besides, Cash issues preclude it.

Hey YT, IF we can get the European get together in Alps, you will be welcome along with your betterhalf, I expect all the family members are part of us and welcomed!! Plus, these days Ryanair, Easyjet etc. offer some incredible prices, so don't exclude yourself too easily!!

I'd be up for this if the date/time/location works out.

Vegas does have cheap flights and our spouses can come (if they want) and gamble away while we meet/greet and eat.

I thhink you should add one where person like me can say: I would love to meat, but unless it is with in a half an hour from my home chances are i will not be able to make it.

I, guess, that should read as my anwer. Unfortynatelly I am so busy ...

P.S. Saturdays never work for me, That kind of cuts the weekend in a half.
You are what you eat.

If it was driving distance for me the nothing could keep me away. That is probably the only way I would be able to do it though.

Would love to do this NEXT year - we've already taken a couple of trips (Nov 06 to NYC, where I got to meet buckytom) and wedding in Chicago last weekend. In July we're sending the kid to Europe for 3 weeks and in October we have another fAMILY wedding in Chicago (found out at the most recent family wedding). Our Memphis buddies are begging us to come to their house on the Outer Banks for 4th of July. Plus, HH is making noises about going to a convention in Vegas or Nashville sometime this summer.

Just don't see being able to swing it financially.

However, buckytom and dw are thinking of visiting relatives who live near us sometime this summer and I promised we would burn a pig at my house if we can get together. DC-ers would be more than welcome to come to that.

You should check out Southwest Airlines they have really cheap tickets like air or air and car rental or air,car and hotel.Ive flown on them its a pretty bare bones airline as far as food and stuff but one of the safest.
