I second that. Otherwise my vote would be for Michigan.
A more regional thing might be best. And so what if you don't get to see other members work of art. One possibility would be to have them on different weekends so someone in between could attend both if they choose to. As for a date my opinion is the second or third weekend in june would be most ideal. And what has been said in the past is right for me that I often need 6 months to request time off before someone else scarfs up dates before me.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

Hi again, TT's wife again... Just one more suggestion. How about Brown County State Park south of Nashville, Indiana? That is centrally located for the Eastern US and not far off of I-65. They have LOTS of sights and activities in the park as well as touristy stuff in Nashville. Just a thought.

I think I still like MI better. That is a little bit farther than I will go with a bus that doesn't do too good with mpg. That is about 890 miles just to nashville fpr me.

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

are there enough skoolies in the northeast to do one here? maybe if i drag the OL to one with a few well done skoolies, I might sell her on the idea of actually getting one of these things.

I'm bad for not reading closly.
Thats still about 684 for me, which is better than OK but I still like the MI idea.

If we have two gatherings, we should just have them both in Oklahoma City to keep things simple!

Re: Lets start planning a gathering for 2008!

This is why I suggested two locations, because ewiitby! In case you don't know what that means, I'll tell you. EVERYONE WANTS IT IN THEIR BACK YARD! It's too hard for people to travel across the country for several days each way in a bus that gets 5-10 mpg. I would like one location where we can all see everyone's bus, but I don't think it's feasible. I think finding two locations that are central to to each half of the country would be the best for everybody. I already know that I have to travel because I'm coming from PROK (People's Republik of Kalifornia). I just don't want to drive 2000 miles. My 1 1/2 cents.
