    Ever thought of having a reunion?

    I was just thinking that I really have never met anyone on this website, peronanally. And was wondering if anyone has ever brought up the thought of having a reunion somewhere in the country where we could all meet. I wonder what the turnout would be?

    That sounds like fun, but it would be a lot of traveling. TFP members are spread just about everywhere across the US and around the world.

    Oh DH and I would love a get together! It's fun to just dream about one.

    He says we should have it at a hotel/resort with a lazy river.

    You know we'd all bring our test kits

    One time on another website I was on, we did a meet like this by state. In texas we met in austin and had 100+ people show up. Granted it was for a car show, but we had people all the way from floriday and california show up.

    Sounds like a cool idea. There are quite a few members here in Florida. I wonder how many would meet in a central location like Orlando. The wife and I would definitely try to meet and make a weekend out of it as long as adult beverages were on the menu

    I wouldn't go unless it was local. They started accepting vacation requests December 1 where I work, and it's first-come-first-serve, so my vacation time is already set. And planned.

    Besides anxiety over our unattended pools, what would we have in common, anyway? And what would we do? None of us would get into the pool at the host hotel, I'll bet!

    Troublefree does not mean Maintenancefree. It's like brushing your teeth: You can spend a couple minutes a day and pennies a week or go to the dentist once a year and spend several thousand dollars.
    A pool is like a pet - you have to feed it every day, even the days you don't want to play with it!

    Re: Ever thought of having a reunion?

    I've kinda wondered when someone would bring this idea up.

    We would probably attend as long as there was enough time for me to plan it.

    Even if local, I barely have enuff time to spend with family and friends as it is, much less internet ones. Just looking over this thread, brentr and benavidescj are probably within 20 miles from me. Still don't have time, though.

    Obviously, we'd stand around and criticize the pool

    Heck, yeah. The reason I built my own pool is that I hate swimming in other people's water...

    That said, I have done the Real-Life MeetUp thing with people from other websites before, successfully. Hosted one where people came from as far as England. Travel to the mainland is pretty expensive for me these days, though.

    Well since you have experience in this area and you ARE in Hawaii, makes sense to me that you should host one for us... :P

    I'll come. I'm always up for a party!

    Eh, maybe I should! If you all aren't too picky about where you sleep (small house) I could host about a half-dozen.
