Whatever works best for everyone else is fine for me. You might want to make sure there aren't any big events going on during any of those weekends, which could cause the flights, hotels, etc., to become scarce or more expensive.

If I'm in town - I'm in.

If I'm in the country, I'm in.

For funk, what about that Queen Anne Hotel - by the space needle? Not that I've ever been there, but it's only $89 night with breakfast.

Also, look at corporate rates - that would bring the price down.

I thought we were all staying at Mean's.

It is a candidate. However it is real small, a bit out of the way and no bar or restaurant.

My initial thoughts were the Edgewater Inn.

Either the 12-14th or the 26-28th work best for me - would prefer the 26-28th. If it's the 19th-21st, I won't be there until the 20th.

Oh, and I will be bringing DH and The Boy. Although, his cousin and her husband may come, too, and the four of them may go off so that I can hang out with the CT'ers. That's probably the way it will work.

I am so excited! I've never been to the west coast before! I'll tell DH this will be my birthday present.

That gets my vote!!

The weekend of the 14th is Canadian Thanksgiving.

CLS - You may send DH, cousin, and her husband off with Max, but you better not even think about sending them off before we all get a chance to see the Maxasourus (how on earth did you spell that?) He has to be held by all the cyber grannies...at least till he screams for his mommie, then he's all yours again.

We will schedule special remote events for spouses so that they don't get in the way of the very late at night festivities.

Maybe I could bring my DH, who could run around looking at boats? Where's Pi?

The hotel is on the waterfront. Plenty of boats.

Is this one of those times where I will be glad to be solo????
Can a Toronto girl from a slightly disfunctional family join in???????

CLS's picture

(post #56625, reply #16 of 111)

*
No. Only those of us from highly dysfunctional families can come

Actually, I expect most people will be solo, Rhea. I will be on vacation in the area with my family already, so they will have to come along. Besides, they don't take up very much space. ;-)

You'll get to see him, I'm sure. He should be fully mobile by then.

Don't know why you didn't have it in Vancouver.

You had better! It will be great to finally meet you. BTW, got my Mermaids Bath order. Everything smells so incredible!!!! The lemon verbena spray is fantastic - my whole house smells lemony fresh! I may just get you to send me some on a regular basis so I never run out.

I'd love to be there, but have no idea if I'll be able to, and am not sure when I will know.

If I do go, Sandra, want to share a room?

Meanie, after my flight I will want a drink!

I think FC didn't want to be seen with us in another country...and I'm not so sure they'll want to be seen with us in this one, either! Besides, Li was off on her vacation when the thing all came together, I believe...maybe if we give them enough advance warning...??

Are you bringing DH, CM?

Thanks - glad you like it. It's a nice one, lemony, yet green note too. I can set you up on the Gevalia plan - send you one every month whether you want it or not - and make it weak. (kidding!)

That depends on whether or not there are enough other DH's around to form a playgroup while we're talking food ;-)

$188 a night at the Edgewater? ouch.

I'm not a wealthy woman.
Unless you all promise to buy lots of bathstuff, which i'll happily deliver, to save you on shipping costs. ;)

if not, perhaps we can split a room? just looked at the prices of the Edgewater and popped a blood vessel. At least I can get a direct flight from the airport nearby - and it's only a 2 hour flight.

Mean - make sure to advise us when you book the rooms! I'll stay where everyone else is this time!
