East Coast Gathering of Bus-Folk

I'm going to go ahead and say lets have a nice, sunny east coast get-together sometime soon. Some of us may not get to make it to Palooza and would still like to get together with some other skoolies. There's a real feeling of "community" to this, and that extends to the real world... not just limited to this forum. I'm met some really cool, amazing folks on this forum. Some come by for visits and hang out regularly. We have some really talented and friendly folks on here and I just love getting to meet people.
Lets get this conversation going and see what we can put together. I've got a place with plenty of room. I wide open field in the country. Located about 30 miles north of Orlando.

I'm down.... 1300 mile round trip is easily a lot more feasible that 3600. Hopefully I'll be well along in my conversion by the time this comes around.

I am totally in for that! You've figured out a where, now we need a when. I'll need to get a generator before boondocking, as I live on the bus and have a fridge that needs to keep running

I'm 115 miles south of Orlando, but I love road trips, so count me in!

I've got a generator that I just need to get a new gas tank seal for, and a long extension cord to my buddy's place, if you end up needing either.
Lets see how much interest there is in this, and get the "when" part figured out.
And anytime anyone local wants to hang out and get together, just shoot me a pm.

I'm definitely interested, but will have to see how the timing works out. It's about 700 miles for me one way from middle TN... of course if I end up finding a spot to boondock further south then it may not be as far from there.

As long as I have power of some kind, I'm good to go

Keep me posted! And if it happens that I get a chance to come up that way before there's something planned, I'll let you know.
