I fail it by Phage (4.00 / 1) #1 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 07:16:41 AM EST
I'm not entirely sure where Wisconsin is.
I had always thought 'Booyah' was a non-verbal expression of victory.

But...dammit...I would love to be able to go. Have agreat time everyone !
Voted to FP.

Heh by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #4 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 08:58:50 AM EST
Well, rest assured the airlines know where Wisconsin is.  :-)

As to booyah... linky

Hope you can come some other time.

The Satrapic couple will more than likely demur... by atreides (4.00 / 1) #2 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 07:39:31 AM EST
...as the Basilissa will be even more pregnant and unable to fly at that point. Sure we could drive, but would you want to be in a car for 21 hours with a woman three weeks away from popping? I think not!

However, the Basilissa has shown an interest in traveling more and possibly meeting more of these so called "Husites" I have so often spoken of. Since her experiences with the six she has met have been most lovely, she wishes to possibly meet more. So, is Weetacon 2010 good for you?

Your circumstances are certainly understandable.  We look forward to seeing you and your lovely wife in 2010.

What is Weetacon? by muchagecko (4.00 / 1) #3 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 08:02:31 AM EST
I'm curious how you got that name.


A purpose gives you a reason to wake up every morning.
So a purpose is like a box of powdered donut holes?
Exactly
My Name is Earl

It is derived by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #6 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 09:01:12 AM EST
It is derived from my wife's nick, Weetabix.

From Weetabix, we get Weetacon with "con" being slang for convention.

Sign up and get your hotel.  I'll let you know costs for the hay ride.

Google says 15 hours drive time.  What planned events happen on Sunday?

Nothing really by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #21 Fri Oct 24, 2008 at 03:36:03 AM EST
Sunday is a travel day for most people.  Are you worried about not getting there until Sunday, or missing parts of it getting back?

no by dev trash (4.00 / 1) #22 Fri Oct 24, 2008 at 01:27:02 PM EST
leaving too early but if Sunday is generally a travel day that works too, that means one less day I have to request off.

I'm down! by CountSpatula (4.00 / 1) #9 Tue Oct 21, 2008 at 03:17:46 PM EST
Green Bay's only a short drive away, and I know I can find floorspace either there or in Appleton.  Count me tentatively in, depending on me actually getting the vacation time.

we're in by LilFlightTest (4.00 / 1) #14 Wed Oct 22, 2008 at 02:24:44 PM EST
we might drive up and get a hotel, but being within an hour's driving distance give us no excuse not to be there!

Awesome by Gedvondur (2.00 / 0) #19 Fri Oct 24, 2008 at 03:33:42 AM EST
I would get a hotel if I were you.  Either one of the two recommended or there are three others downtown you could try.  They all put you in walking distance of the bar we go to and near where the bus picks you up for the hayride.

I will do my best by blixco (4.00 / 1) #16 Thu Oct 23, 2008 at 03:03:02 PM EST
and at some point, I will do my best to get a goddamn passport and go to London.

Then Canada. Or vice-versa.

BUT FIRST this. Hopefully.
