Respect for your staying with your league.

Cool on the "a littlestar walks into a bar" thing.

Congratulations on keeping CBB in a cage so effectively. Not many of us would be up to that task.

Fine words on being competitive and getting better without being a bitch.

+1 on rambling diary. That's the way we like them here.

+1M on HuSi stock. I haven't been to a HuSi meetup in abt 5 years, (unless you count mini- meetup at Technician's place 2 years ago. . .) Anyway, count me in.

She has effectively checked out. She's an un-person of her own making. So it falls to me.--ad hoc (in the hole)

Ah thanks by littlestar (4.00 / 1) #8 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 12:20:03 PM EST
That's sweet. It was hard figuring out what to do with the politics. I started a Grievance Committee at the league, within all the turmoil times, to try and help straighten stuff out, but it was too broken. But, I am seen as a neutral party so I burn no bridges, which is a good thing at least. 

That would be sweet if you could come. :)

HuSiStock by jimgon (4.00 / 1) #2 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 10:54:44 AM EST
If you did a HuSiStock next year I would definitely be up for that.

On your way out east by Driusan (4.00 / 1) #3 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 11:40:37 AM EST
You should stop with us in Montreal. We have booze and poutine.  And a park for the kids. Also, a spare room.

Unless we're out east, in which case, we should meet out east. They have beer and seafood. And I guess probably parks.

Vive le Montréal libre.

That would be neat! by littlestar (2.00 / 0) #5 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 12:15:10 PM EST
 I would love to do that if it worked out for everyone. Maybe you could show us some secret cool spots in the city.

Caesar by LoppEar (4.00 / 1) #4 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 12:04:38 PM EST
Had one yesterday with smoked gouda, realized what to do with all that clamato juice I have at home..

Husistock next year, yes please! We are currently making extravagant summer trip plans for next year through the midwest and west, would thoroughly plan TO into the loop. Current vote would be for late June.

Here's hoping CBB will be more free-range and housetrained by then!

Mmmmmmm by littlestar (2.00 / 0) #6 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 12:17:21 PM EST
Goudaaa. That's a yummy cheese. Ceasars are delightful. I quite enjoy a nice spicy, seasoned tequila ceasar as well. Yum!

It would be SO neat to see you guys.

hells yeah by dev trash (2.00 / 0) #9 Sun Jun 02, 2013 at 10:05:44 PM EST
I was thinking on driving the Trans-Canada to Alaska ( I know not a direct connection) but Husi-stock sounds more exciting.

Down East road trip by clover kicker (4.00 / 1) #10 Mon Jun 03, 2013 at 10:13:22 PM EST
Sounds fun, if you like I could suggest some things to do, and other ones to avoid.

Sure! by littlestar (2.00 / 0) #12 Tue Jun 04, 2013 at 08:45:23 AM EST
 I've been getting info from anyone who has something to share. I'm happy to learn from your experiences. :) share away!

alright by clover kicker (2.00 / 0) #13 Tue Jun 04, 2013 at 01:54:30 PM EST
Can't tell you anything about The Rock, never been.

Cabot Trail: A+ must see

Nova Scotia south shore - Lunenburg, Peggy's Cove etc: A- it's a landscape you won't see in Ontario.

PEI - pros: beautiful rolling farmland, oceanscapes/beach. The bridge is very cool. Some people dig the Anne of Green Gables thing.
cons: you just drove through lots of beautiful rolling farmland in ON, PQ, NB to get there, and the oceanscapes/beach in NB/NS are just as good.

beach - although the tourist literature shows beaches along the whole coastline, some of them are muddy, some of them are frigid, and some of them are both muddy and frigid.

The warmest water and best sand is probably Parlee beach NB but far too many people for this clover kicker. Might be OK for you guys, probably more used to crowds. Might not be too bad on weekdays.

I'd instead try Aboiteau or the Bouctouche dunes in that area, same nice sand and nice water, less crowds.

Cavendish PEI also has great sand but the water is colder.

NB/NS/PEI urban centers are utterly forgettable. The waterfront in Halifax is probably the highlight.

To my mind the nicest attractions in NB are the national and provincial parks.

Hiking Mt. Carleton with kids would be crazy.

Kouchibouguac and Fundy are both nice. Fundy has seascape trails and forest/stream/lake trails, stick with the seascapes because there's nothing inland you couldn't see back home.

If you can spare a couple extra hours you might consider getting off the 4-lane in New Brunswick and travelling the old highway along the Saint John river, a beautiful drive. If you're interested I can give detailed directions.

husistock by aphrael (4.00 / 1) #11 Tue Jun 04, 2013 at 07:19:10 AM EST
if you do a husistock while i'm still on the east coast, i'd almost certainly (work timeoff permitting, yadda yadda) be down for it. :)

i don't think we can predict yet what happens when he graduates.

i'm loving NYC. Jared is more meh on it. This may be a problem in three years.

Part of what's happening is i'm integrating pretty tightly into a social group of people who are (a) good people and (b) MY people. Jared is much less integrated than I am.

I'll keep some Aeropoints in reserve by MostlyHarmless (2.00 / 0) #16 Sun Jun 09, 2013 at 08:21:52 PM EST
I'd totally be up for another HuSiStock, been far too long since I've seen y'all.

I think some of you folks might even remember who I am :-)

[Mostly Harmless]

Oh yes. by littlestar (2.00 / 0) #18 Tue Jun 11, 2013 at 11:52:13 PM EST
 I remember.
