    I was just myself. I didn't know any other way to be, or any other way to live."

    I only voted for October. How's that for decisive? I guess the place isn't that much of a concern - should be good photo possibilities anywhere, right? Either that or I can be bribed...

    Yeah, but Steve, I will probably see you in November in Chicago. Rick, well, you'll be waiting years for that brewery!

    Steve, don't listen to her. I will build you your own custom brewery with ground breaking set to commence... as soon as you click that "vote" button...

    Why wait till November?

    Re: Preliminary Vote: For interest sakes

    I'd rather go see the Great Smoky Mountains, but I don't think that will happen if we go to Nashville. It's just too far. So, I had to vote for Arizona. "Other" = Ralph Nader. October is a must for Az.

    Rick, I'd like to request for the brewery to make a hefeweizen.

    Keep 'em coming. Paul and Brian, anything to sway the vote?

    Adina has a good point about me actually being able to collect on this one. I'm printing off a copy of this thread and putting it in my camera bag as a reminder...

    Hey, I'm close to Chicago, what can I say?

    :
    That's because those of us who gather in Chicago are an exceptionally fun bunch. And we're cool. Everyone wants to come to Chicago. We're like the cool kids on the playground.

    I see!
    If I didn't know any better, I'd say you are implying that people from Utah are a bunch of fuddy duddies!

    Re: Preliminary Vote: For interest sakes

    I voted Arizona, but either AZ or Nashville I wouldn't mind, I know people in both states. Plus in Nashville I'd actually have a place to stay for free, and a chance to do some Urban Exploration.

    Hell I know people in most of the US states.

    October 2007 seems to be the overwhelming choice.

    Now, let's meet on the east coast....

    The Seafood Festival is the first weekend in October, and the lovely wife has a birthday on the 2nd. First three PR members to sign up get free rooms at my house.

    Amen Paul!!!!

    Actually, I am going to the Blue Ridge Mountains the last weekend in October (2006) with a couple of my old college buddies who are also photographers. Trying to talk a local friend/phtoographer into going, and if anyone brings their wife/girlfriend then Dawn says she'll go!

    Here are a few shots from previous outings.

    Speed, more pics of the Blue Ridge Parkway please!!!! I have been wanting to take a motorcycle trip through there for a long time now.

    Rick, I voted for Nashville, but I would be equally happy with Arizona. I've never been to Nashville, other than driving through at night, and it's a lot closer for me.
