Meetup...my house...

Post by JMG » Mon May 21, 2018 9:48 pm

We have started our speaking tour of sorts and I'm booked solid the next few Sundays. Early June my family and I will work our way up to NC. After a week or so I will come back to MS by myself and let my wife and kids have some time with my MIL and SIL. So, I will be bach'ing it for a few weeks.

Is there any interest in a meetup at my place

some time late June, early July?

The Country Squire pipe shop is very near by and plenty of good eateries. You folks would be more than welcome to crash at my house.

As tempting as this is, I think 2600 miles one way is a bit further than I'm willing to travel for a meetup.
In theory, theory and practice are the same. In practice, they are not.

I may be in. We are heading back from Gulf Shores around June 30, and I was thinking about making a 3 hour detour to come see ya.

Right now I'd say there's about a 35℅ chance that I can be there. If I had to make a Wagner. Or a swag.

Fastest route, the usual traffic
Your destination is in a different time zone.

Dang. You are really quite much farther away than I suspected.

12 & 1/2 hours drive time from Wisconsin. Ugh.

Perhaps I could pick up Gabriel as I pass through the dark, bitter heart of Illinois?
=================================================

Next March, I will be in Ponchatoula, LA for the annual Chesterton Conference. That is a scant 2 hours from JMG.

There will be a meet-up then, God willing, and if the missionary has not returned to his mission.

A flight will take about two hours. I will pick you up at the airport.

Its only 1,192 for me, that said I can't due to timing...oh and that small 34 hour round trip drive. Much as I would love to meet up...not this go around.

I am a mere 863 miles away. Yet that still means a two-day drive, each way.

A flight will take about seven hours. I will pick you up at the airport when I pick up DL, Del, and Bloodhound. You might have to sit in Del's lap.

23 hour drive. Google says I can bike it in 6 days. I don't think Google knows me very well
