Excellent Herf '19 Dates?

Are we on? Do we have dates? Can Peter handle another influx of beer guzzlin' cigar smokers?

    Yes, vacation scheduling is happening now for me and I was wondering about the Milwaukee herf dates too. Last year I missed out. This year I'd rather not. Assuming Peter is willing to have us.

    I  3 @Bob_Luken too, and @Wylaff and I'll even  <3@Usaf06 if he shows up in June.

    I'm all for it, and would look forward to hosting again.  Third time's the charm, as the saying goes.

    I had my secretary clear my calendar for June.  The weekend after Father's Day would be my first choice, Thurs. 6/20 thru Sun. 6/23.  The deciding factor will mainly be Brad @avengethis, whether he wants to be our smoker-slave again and what his schedule looks like.

    The weather for that weekend is forecast to be sunny, in the mid-70's with low humidity.

    It looks like every weekend will be doubtful for Brad.  Let's just pick a weekend and go with it.

    You long-distance brothers that need to schedule your vacation time, we'll start with suggestions from you.  What's your pleasure?

    I'm down like a clown any weekend chosen.  Same as every year my house is open to those that want to come in early.

    As much as i would love to attend again we have booked a 3 week trip to Greece and Ireland in July. I just don't see it happening so close.

    Since you asked,... :) Thurs. 6/20 thru Sun. 6/23 looks like a maybe. The following weekend 27th 28 29 30th looks way better for me.

    June 27-30 is the front-runner then.

    Not sure my family will love this landing on Father's day, but I'm looking forward to it.
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    I've got the time. We've got a baby sitter. We are trying to get @mrswylaff to come down with us.

    My guest room has been booked for Thursday, but there is still plenty of couch space available.  Just a few short months away.

    Not sure if I can pull it off, but I will see what I can come up with.  How long was the drive @Patrickbrick

    Anywhere between 8-11 hours depending on how much you stop and how many detours you have to make on your way to his house. I'm definitely going to do something to make that better next time he gives me a ride. 
  • PatrickbrickPatrickbrick Lake Zurich IlPosts: 5,170 ✭✭✭✭✭
    One of the reclining couches upstairs and the lone piece couch downstairs are now booked.

    Not yet, but there is still time.  I'm also going to ask him to bring his air mattress so we can accommodate more people.  Wayne put his request in, it was not the basement floor. Based on last years turn out and the need to eat again five minutes after, I will step up my dinner game this year too.

    After driving 28 hours (both ways) to 'do the mule' I would suggest a regional airline, I can fly from Mesa to Milwakee for $65. Do we have a definite date?

    In answer to @dirtdude's question, let's go with June 27-30 (so @Bob_Luken can make it), the 28th & 29th being the Friday and Saturday. 

    People wanting to start early will most likely hang at Patrick's on Thursday like the last two years, but if they want to see more of Milwaukee they can come here early and leave on Sunday whenever.

    Feel free to PM me before booking a BnB... one of John's examples is in a sketchier neighborhood.

    We leave Saturday to go up North but I am going to try and make it down Friday for part of the day and dinner.

    Thank you Peter for vetting the BnB possibilities. Which one was sketchy?
