This is a great Idea, We missed the gathering by a couple of weeks also. Aren't you afraid the $100. deposit will keep some of the rif-raf out?

Sounds good to me, I'm always game for an adult beverage (or 6) but I can't make a firm commitment at this point. We are rendezvousing (oh.. I'm going to get comments about bad spelling and making up a new word) with 3 other folks (also just arriving) who will have been up since dawn and traveling all day...that 3 hour wait in the bar in Miami usually gets to us!
Here's how we travel. Get to airport ridiculously early, have coffee with baileys and kahula, layover in Miami, have cocktails, transfer to PDC, have beer(s)...I just don't understand why we can't make it past 9ish!!

Just mentioned the 19th to accommodate Ennui.... but I think the 16th will be the main event for that week (certainly as it sounds like Ennui might be out of sorts on her/his day of arrival!) Also.... if I set to booking too many get-togethers that week, David'll start doing that eye-rolling thing at me!

BUT!!! Anyone can set up a get-together at any place at any time!!!!!

Tinman: I can't imagine spending any appreciable amount of time on the beach at Mamita's without having you and your lovely better-half Jackie nearby!!!!! And just think..... if you book early, maybe the hotel you stayed at this year could reserve you a room with a view of the alley on the south side.

So, Karen, if the Bumpers get a vote, get my chum David to grab that earlier week.
(Note to self: Start building an inventory of Bumper hugs)
Great minds think alike, Bump??? Okay.... maybe that doesn't apply here, but as long as they lower the standards of "great", I think maybe we can sneak in if no one's looking. Quick!!! Distract them with a dancing Kinzie!!!

Sounds like that week of February 26 - March 4 will be the one for us!!!! Already looking forward to it in a BIG way!!!

As for that inventory of Bumper hugs you're gonna build, you'd better increase your storage capacity, cuz I plan to take at least 50% of those that you bring!

We did indeed conclude the Playa Maya transaction with the very helpful Mr. Ryberg before returning home yesterday and have our room reserved for Feb 23 - Mar 9, 2006.

If you remember the white-board I was holding at the Tequila Barrel web cam event, I believe I proposed Mon Feb 27 thru Fri Mar 3, 2006 for an event I rather hastily named "Peep Fest 2006".




Further discussions on this have since been undertaken with Bumper and we intend on meeting soon after he returns to Winnipeg to consider ways to make this a memorable week for all who can attend.

Stay tuned for breaking news on this event in the weeks ahead.

Or, 'PeepStock, 2006' ... I think Peep Fest sounds better though...

Nerak, I'm a she..we don't want to start that whole Electra gender confusion again!
We would love to meet up with y'all and appreciate the thought but I know what shape we are in when we travel all day. We never fly without our stash of mini bottles. That's what they are for, right? Airline bottles are for on the airplane.

Last trip I carried 3 16 oz. plastic water bottles.... 1 was water, 1 was Bacardi Coco Rum, 1 was Absolut vodka. Just asked for OJ and ice on the plane and that, together with a couple of small cans of Dole pineapple juice, David and I enjoyed some nice tropical cocktails on our way to and from Playa!! (The water bottle with the Baileys was packed in the luggage and survived the trip in tip top shape!!)

I really like the sound of "PeepStock 2006," but we will definitely have to have live music and heavy drinking if we want to call it that.

I am planning on being in town for Carnival 2006. Which is at the end of February?? At least I hope it will be. Ash Wednesday is March 1st 2006. And so by my estimation Carnival should be February 25 through 28th.

We should organize something around Carnival.
