    Remember plans for a National Gathering???

    Just a reminder of what we discussed a year ago:

    Preliminary Vote: For interest sakes

    This was originally nat's idea, but she hasn't posted since May.

    At this point, it would be very difficult for me to get away next month. Looks like the idea is dead in the water, eh?

    I remember our discussing very well. I was revved about going to Nashville. As a mater of fact I'm going next weekend any way. One of my daughter has me on command performance to help her move.
    Don't forget about the Gallery. Are your photos there??

    Re: Remember plans for a National Gathering???

    That was an interesting thread. However, with the rediculous gas prices these days, I think it would really be tough for the majority of the members to do that much traveling. BTW, has anyone had the pleasure of visiting Duluth, MN and the north shore of Lake Superior in northern MN, in early October?

    I was at the Wisconsin Big Cat Rescue yesterday. As soon as I clean my house, I'll post some photos. Perhaps that's a good gathering area.....well, except for the fact it's in the middle of nowhere.

    Chicago in November is still looking like my next trip....

    Not that late in the year. I have been to the Keweenaw which is the big peninsula in the UP in late October but of course that was well past prime. Still lots of stuff to shoot though. This link might help.

    National gathering? I do remember it but I'm out of vacation time at work...

    Count me out too. The wife and I just booked a trip to South Africa for this summer so we will be pinching pennies for a while.

    Wow, Michael, that sounds really exciting! We've got some family who has been there, they say it is amazing. Cool for you!

    Been to Nashville a couple of times. Where was everyone ?

    Schedule of late has been made on the fly and via the cell.

    If someone gathers I'll just keep an eye out and hope for the best in my hectic schedule!

    It will be a great experience. My sister lived in Johannesburg (Jo'burg) for about a year and a half but I never had the chance to get down there to visit.

    Almost as cool - I lived in Milwaukee for a couple years.

    Not to say I told you so...

    ...but we all seem to be on the same wavelength. I sort of bowed out of the discussions last year, as I though the whole idea of planning something like this a year in advance was a little silly.

    I finally figured, knock yourselves out hashng out the details, and if I can make it I will.

    FWIW, I'm still a firm believer in local Gatherings arranged a month or two ahead of time...
