this is the most important response do far.
My vision of this event, is that it is not a get-together, or a weekend with friends, this will be a FESTIVAL!
My vision is a transformative event.
If you need to take a week of vacation to attend, you should consider it.
My gut tells me to stay away from ALL holidays, as squeezing into a long weekend thing, simply means we will be competing with the "other" long weekend thing your spouse had planned.
Seriously, I am thinking Monday till the next Monday. If you can squeeze a few days in and meet us, great, if not, there is the next one. We cannot accommodate everyone and the weird schedules and holidays, we can only try to fit the most people in.
Maybe we should be more vague in time and region?
Arizona or Florida in winter
Colorado or Montana in Summer (or any high elevation spot)
Spring/Fall events with appropriate weather
One thing I have NO INTEREST in is anything to do with a campground.
This to me means BLM or Nat. Forrest.
I have a few places in mind, but chime in if you have something interesting.
