YesTalk Gathering

Postby tardistraveler » Tue Mar 23, 2004 1:19 pm

Several of us were talking in the chat room about having a gathering for YesTalkers!

We've had several ideas kicked around so far - camping on a farm, renting a chalet in the mountains, and tonight we discussed getting beachfront accommodations at Hilton Head!

So, I'm starting this thread to see if anyone would be interested in attending such a gathering, and if so, where would you like to see it take place?

And join us in the chat room at night - we spawn all kinds of ideas there! <img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

OK - let's hear your ideas!

I do an annual camping trip every year in early May. For years I've tried to get people motiviated enough to come, but so far it's never happened.

Anyone want to go cabin camping around the lake in May?

Ed, where do you do your camping trip?

Glad you started this thread, Diane! <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
I am SO in...I really don't have a preference as to where we go, as long as it rhymes with "Milton Spread". <img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

No, really - whoever is interested should make their voices heard, and let's get something going here!! Especially to coincide with the 35th Tour - music, nature, fun, laughter, consciousness-expanding experiences, great company, oh yeah!! <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle><img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>

<font face='Comic Sans MS'>if i lived closer and had the time i'd love to go too. what a great way to meet all yestalkers!
i really don't think it would be as bad as in bob dylan's

<font color=blue>'Talking Bear Mountain Picnic Blues'

I saw it advertised one day,
Bear Mountain picnic was comin' my way.
"Come along 'n' take a trip,
We'll bring you up there on a ship.
Bring the wife and kids
Bring the whole family."
Yippee!

Well, I run right down 'n' bought a ticket
To this Bear Mountain Picnic.
But little did I realize
I was in for a picnic surprise.
Had nothin' to do with mountains.
I didn't even come close to a bear.

Took the wife 'n' kids down to the pier,
Six thousand people there,
Everybody had ticket for the trip.
"Oh well." I said, "it's a pretty big ship.
Besides, anyway, the more the merrier."

Well, we all got on 'n' what d'ya think,
That big old boat started t' sink
More people kept a-pilin' on,
That old ship was a-slowly goin' down.
Funny way t' start a picnic.

Well, I soon lost track of m' kids 'n' wife,
So many people there I never saw in m' life
That old ship sinkin' down in the water,
Six thousand people tryin' t' kill each other,
Dogs a-barkin', cats a-meowin',
Women screamin', fists a-flyin', babies cryin',
Cops a-comin', me a-runnin'.
Maybe we just better call off the picnic.

I got shoved down 'n' pushed around,
All I could hear there was a screamin' sound,
Don't remember one thing more,
Just remember walkin' up on a little shore,
Head busted, stomach cracked,
Feet splintered, I was bald, naked. . .
Quite lucky to be alive though.

Feelin' like I climbed outa m' casket,
I grabbed back hold of m' picnic basket.
Took the wife 'n' kids 'n' started home,
Wishin' I'd never got up that morn.

Now, I don't care just what you do,
If you wanta have a picnic, that's up t' you.
But don't tell me about it, I don't wanta hear it,
'Cause, see, I just lost all m' picnic spirit.
Stay in m' kitchen, have m' own picnic. . .
In the bathroom.

Now, it don't seem to me quite so funny
What some people are gonna do f'r money.
There's a bran' new gimmick every day
Just t' take somebody's money away.
I think we oughta take some o' these people
And put 'em on a boat, send 'em up to Bear Mountain . . .
For a picnic.

Amy - "consciousness-expanding" activities? Whatever could you mean?

Tom - Hopefully our gathering will be a better one than in the Dylan song!

Keep the ideas coming! And let us know if you're in!

Not only am I "down" with camping rituals, YES, I am an Eagle Scout,and used to live just across the Hudson River from Bear Mtn Park in Peekskill, NY (Pataki was my mayor) etc AND I have also "spawned" for 6 and half years on Hilton Head-living/working there on two separate occassions, mid-70's and mid 90's, ...The first "Mrs Tribute" is from Hilton Head and my daughter Bethany was born on Hilton Head in 1992, not on beach but in the hospital...you may notice alot of "mini-me's" running around that island as well.....I can show you around the Low Country....I do have an "ex" brother in law that is a resort manager, Palmeto Dunes/Sand Dollar Mng and will do what I can to help with the appropriate accomodations...before I commit to this trip I just need to check out the "statute of limitations" on certains endeavors.....

Well, Tribute, just let us know what rates you can get us!

Seriously, if we're going to do this, we need a headcount, and we need to set a time that's reasonable for everyone.

As for me, I'm looking at late summer/fall before I'll have much leave time available. What works for everyone else?

I'm hearing from reliable sources that October would be a good time to do Hilton Head - less crowds - good weather.

Diane, YES your reliable sources are correct!
In coastal South Carolina... usually by October, all the "tourist-traffic" will be over, as most of the schools will have started back. And the weather, though a little cooler a night, will still be very pleasant. (Kinda like an "Indian Summer".) Sounds like a perfect time of year to have a YES gathering with "consciousness-expanding" activities.<img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>..... Gary

Well, summer works best for me as I am a teacher, and I generally save my vacations for, well, school vacation time. I don't have any of those in October, but I could take a "sick day" and make it a long weekend. Somehow, I think that I would be "healed" down south...<img src=pix/icon_smile_wink.gif border=0 align=middle>

To those in the know, how's the H2O for swimming at that time of year?

Yeah, you're entitled to be "sick" every once in a while! And our southern hospitality is very "healing" <img src=pix/icon_smile_big.gif border=0 align=middle>
