A Yearly Gathering

Postby Scott the Pirate on Thu Jul 09, 2009 12:39 am

On a more serious note, would anyone else be interested in starting and/or helping out at a yearly gathering? I would certainly find a way to attend one!

A few of us have kicked around the idea of getting together at ET's place or attending PG's wedding, but i don't think that a once-a-year get-together is too far-fetched.

Any takers?

I might be able to hit London to celebrate Holiday? (CF, Daftbeaker, Black Bart, all the other UK pastafarians).

Since we span the globe, the long distances some of us would have to travel make it impractical for us all to meet in person.

I think a good compromise would be several meetings at strategic destinations and some live webcams, like what has been suggested for PG's wedding.

a completely Global meeting is... really complicated, if only for our UK friends.

North America, however, could do something. Perhaps an East coast and a West coast, or central... depending on where people are.

So first we need to decide who exactly, or what region, would be attending said gathering. Then we need to find a time. I suppose the only holiday that works is Talk Like A Pirate Day, but that's during school for me this year (or at least on a school weekend), so I wouldn't be able to make that, unless it was local, i.e. in Washington D.C.

Which could work, we could march on the lawn with like, 5-15 people and not tell anyone. :cool:

Obviously. I was slightly...okay...REALLY drunk when i wrote the initial post and thought that the whole "Get together by region" was implied.

I'm all for the getting together at ET's place idea, because I could drive there. Other than that, I really couldn't just because of how much cash I'm pouring into university and rugby.

ET's place could work for me... I could either fly, or there might be a train arrangement?

The availability of ET's place hinges upon the cooperation of Mrs. T, a commodity not in plentiful abundance at this time. There is ET's camp, a bit further north and lacking in several modern amenities, but slightly more available than the residence. Also somewhat difficult to find, but that could be worked around. There are facilities to sleep perhaps a dozen or so, depending on how friendly everyone is feeling. Showering a dozen or so people there could take a while. There are cooking facilities, a flush toilet, hot water, and four "bedrooms", though not all the "bedrooms" have doors, and two of them are pretty small. There is currently no refrigerator, the floors are far from level, and a somewhat musty odor prevails.
There's also \/this lake 53 feet from the camp.

And \/this one is six miles up the road.

Heck ET that's not roughing it, that sounds pretty posh to me.
Our friends had a cabin we all helped to build up in NY State. No running water, toilet was a hole in the ground with an appropriate box on top with toilet seat on it, which wasn't bad except in the middle of the night (it was set up about 50 feet into the woods), shower was a five gallon bucket of water heated over campfire, which 4 people had to share and it was outside. Jumping in the lake to get clean looks like alot more fun.
We did have 4 solid walls and a roof and woodstove once project was completed. We all shared the loft for sleeping.

As long as the weather isn't cold, we have a truck tent so our bedroom can arrive with us.

THAT is my idea of camping TS! Do you knw what i think the most important piece of camping equipment is? A bottle of Everclear 190 proof! Light and easy to carry, and serves many purposes. You can clean wounds with it, use it as smelling-salts, start the fire with it and , of course, pour about 1 cup into a pitcher of crystal light drink mix and get everybody drunk!

Your camp sounds pretty nice there ET. Plus, the further north it is, the better it is for me. :smile:

ET's "Mrs. ET" worries aside (not that they're irrelevant in any way), if we could set up a get-together on or near his BEAUTIFUL property, i might just think i'd died and gone to the beer volcano...

Me and the Rutgers Pastafarians would be more than happy to host a gathering. We've been looking for something cool to blow all our money on.
