OK So I'm seeing a lot of "Depending on the weekend"'s the ones listed here are merely suggestions, so I have questions for all of you:

  1. Can you list/point out which weekends that are good for you?
  2. I saw no suggestions, so, What activities would you guys like to do? If any at all? (we can always just hangout for lunch and get nerdy with one another :P)

I think once we get an idea of how many people we can get to fit into 1 day, then we can decide on where we'll be to hang out, because we need to find out how many people are going to come, that way we can find a location that'll be as close to the middle of us all as possible. The more details you guys give me, the quicker I can formulate a plan for us to meet up.

I imagine this won't be the quickest meetup as we need to make sure we coordinate well. I think meeting somewhere convenient for the majority is cool. Maybe a barbecue as those can be had just about anywhere! And we could just have outdoor games and such.

I can do March 16th/17th or March 30th/31st.  Basically for me I can do every other weekend because I have my girls the other weekends.

OK Well, since Mindisruption was the only one to suggest a date, Let's start with that. who can come on either days/weekends?

 

March 16th & 17th

 

OR

 

March 30th & 31st

 

Once we get Who can and cannot come, we can decide on Where and What and What Time. The faster you guys respond, the faster we can plan this out!

OK So I think it's safe to say that we're all poor and March 16th/17th will be the projected day for the Meet-up!

 

So this boils down to activities that don't involve.... well, money. So, that leaves us with:

  1. Picnic/Potluck/BYOB/BBQ
  2. Hanging out at a Park/Zoo/Museum
  3. Hiking at a near by mountain/resort/fairly large hill

If you guys can pick/suggest an activity, I can delve into it and find out several locations, so far it's appears to be that the meet-up will happen around Visterra/Kim Possible's location due to the fact that she's in the middle of everyone, of course, this is merely a start, to help try to find out where we'll all be/what we will be doing. 

 

How does that sound to you guys? Yay? Nay? Meh?

For clarification: location would be around Oceanside/Vista/San Marcos?

 

I'm voting a 5-7 mile moderate hike followed by BBQ, with optional BYOB. A looped hike that starts/ends near a park with barbecues would be ideal.  

 

Or, we could go beachside and do a cliff themed hike and follow up with eating by a bonfire.

A hike sounds great as well as a bbq/bonfire.  We could hike Torrey Pines or somewhere near the beach so we could do a bonfire.

Yes, the location would be around there.

 

I'm not too familiar with nearby hikes and whatnot, so any suggestions like Mindisruption put is needed/helpful, a quick search found me:

And that's about it, if anyone knows these areas or is familiar with them or knows other locations that might be good, then please share. 

 

I've been to Anza-Borrego before, it's a desert park, there's an Oasis trail (which I thought was pretty cool) and a nice mountain hike (which I didn't get to go to) but for being in the Desert, it's pretty good IMO. Lots of open space and area, you can literally spend the whole day just exploring, there's also a small town nearby with groceries and other things.

 

Links are provided in the names of the parks so you can check them out, if they seem interesting to you.

Carlsbad State Beach is gorgeous, but I haven't been in forever, so I wouldn't exactly call myself familiar with it. My personal preference is beaches or trees :P

But I'm up for wherever.

 

I love the hike idea! I'm also for BYO.

If you do not change where you are headed, you will end up where you are going.
