Virginia & surroundings...

Figure someone ought to put something here. We have several registered folks residing in Virginia (TGC, MsGamgee, me, eDreamer, that I can come up with off the top of my head), FairNymph is in NC...&c., &c.

We ought to do something somewhere near the Atlantic, near the middle...Idunno if anyone from Union territory is interested, but I think we could put something mid-Atlantic together with some time...

Richmond, DC, I'm not sure on -where-...

Sounds good to me. I'm technically farther south, but if its over the summer it might be possible.

My best friend lives there, so I drive through Virginia a fair bit. Plus, there's IKEA. Biggrin I'd be down!

Ikea is a regular part of my life. DC is a good area for me, personally.

I'd probably be afraid to meet people from this forum. <. took="" me="" six="" weeks="" to="" get="" up="" the="" nerve="" register="" after="" all.="">

Then again, summer has been talked about... If it's that far in the future I might be able to come to terms with it.

What about meeting in the cafe at Ikea? It's impossible to miss from the interstate, and has a parking lot bigger than many stadiums so we probably wouldn't have trouble finding parking. And the southernmost metro station isn't that far if we did decide to go into DC. If we have people from NC or points further south it seems like a better spot to meet than DC proper.

Then again, I am just saying that because it's closer to my part of Virginia than DC is.

I'm right outside of DC - I actually work at a winery just south of Quantico. I can easily make it to DC or Richmond quite easily - even though I don't know the area all that well. Summer may be an issue - I will hopefully be much much farther south, but we can definitely see what happens! ^__^

I was checking out the map and it looks like there's only about half a dozen of us in the upper midwest. Bugger.

You may draw lurkers and people who haven't used the map.

I didn't even know the map existed! This is so cool! Mei, maybe you just wanna hard-link that puppy in the side bar! Can you embed the map somewhere, even? I am so impressed!

At this rate, I'm going to need an assistant. Who do I think I am, Neil Gaiman? sheesh. not enough time in the day...

And honestly, I would rather have extra story than fancy schtuff on the web site.

I'm guessing you can't make Sir do it...though I hope he's slightly more enthused about the project than he used to be...

pay attention! Mei said Sir's been really busy lately...he still hasn't gotten to Eleonora's sexual orientation thread. Poor guy must be really swamped. Sad

I was actually referring to Sir's somewhat lukewarm response to the serial project, at least at the outset. I don't mean to pick at all. I'm sorry if it came out that way.

Is there any way you can take volunteers from your more involved readers to help out with things like that? I'm not sure I could actually help any, but with the cross section of geeks on here...

I'm now on the map!!! Biggrin I didn't even know there was one! But now I'm on it!! Sigh.. It's too late, must be why I'm so kicked by that fact! There are really few people in Europe, though...

to go on my pin in the map. I uploaded it, and I can see it under my photos, but I just have a little gray dude where my picture should be on my pin. Any ideas?

That happened to me, too. I had to upload the pic twice before it finally showed up on the map... Maybe that will help...

Probably driving up the morning of the 5th, and leaving the 8th or the 9th.
