I was damn near a Cleveland (had to look it up...) on my one trip there and that was splitting a roachy (not really) motel with my brother.  

 

And HC left off "bar tab" on the list of expenses.  If you meet up with Rich, Lola  and KD, expect there to be a bar tab.

 

In all honesty, I think my portion of the trip was in the $800 range.  Airfare alone was $400.  I couldn't find the spreadsheet that Matt used to clarify split expenses.  Otherwise, I'd know to the penny.  

 

Shhh! We don't talk about bar tabs.  :knuppel2:  We prefer to call it research. The only way to get Mr. Kirbydox to travel with us is to find good beer and baseball since he isn't into caching. You and Matt didn't even hit as many microbreweries as Rich & Lola and I did.

 

That was a fun trip. I like Block Party even more than Geowoodstock! 

 

Pssshaw!  Ain't no way we are keeping up with you guys.  In caching or bar tabs, er, "research".  But a planner needs to know (although, I've long since forgotten who was planning what here...)

 

No doubt Seattle wins over any place GW goes.  Ain't never been to GW, but I agree with your assessment, er, "research".

 

Dang, you do do a lot of "research".

I think Groundspeak should move to Portland.   Now that's a trip I would research!

Juleed and I are planning one for us Po folk.  It'll be in Baytown.

When is this Block Party supposed to happen? I'll put it on our calendar if I can get a where/when.

See you there ....

 

Scott's and my plans for the block party/Glacier train trip are coming together ... So we are doing the block party first, then taking the train to Glacier from Seattle.

Then after Glacier, taking the train to Minneapolis/St. Paul and flying home after a day there.

I guess Juleed and I need to start hashing out the Block Party in the Baytown area to coincide with this one.

Got my gasoline money put aside for the trip to Baytown!!  All $70.00!!  I hope one day to go to the Block Party, Seattle does rock and it is a very beautiful city.  

 

@Heftydude: Try to go to Geowoodstock, you will enjoy it, especially since it is a traveling event, next year being in St. Louis.  I also hear the beer is great, there are beer tours, one a brew house, the other *BUDWEISER*.  I am really shooting for St. Louis next year just, seems like a very nice place to host GW12.  Don't kick GW around until you have tried it!

Maybe one day I will go to the real block party but will mark down to go to Baytown this year. 

 

Georeyna, just to make sure I am not too confused but did you mean that GW14 (not GW12) would be in St. Louis next year?  I had looked little while back but couldn't find the location.  If it is, if anyone is interested in a combining expenses and doing a road trip I would love to go.

It's going to be a real block party in Baytown. I'm going to set a tire on fire in the front yard and Juleed is going to cook a goat.

GeoWoodstock XII will be in 2014 in St. Louis (actually, St. Charles, MO).  The first Geowoodstock was in 2003.

I know what a tortiller is. But watch

I priced out the Blockparty trip and found that it was pretty reasonable. Started making arrangements for Tadpole babysitting and the such then got invited to go with Chicken's family up to Branson. I guess the prospect of seeing Wayne Netwon won out. :2funny:

 

Wait, he's in Vegas,,, Oh well, too late now! :uglystupid2:

 

 

This works out good though. Now i get to run over to Baytown on the 17th if all goes well!

Will be heading to the block party.  Been a while since I can make a mega event and never made any to HQ.

Planning on giving a Milestone and Extremes Map to HOUSTON CONTROL and to one of the co founders of the ET HWY mega series at a local event during the same weekend.

So looking forward to it.  :cheers:

Quite exciting. Going to be there only for the weekend but hoping to find some fun caches and participate in all events.
