    OK the idea came up and I think it would be a really cool thing if we could pull it off so figured I would see what everyone else thought.
    Pick a time for this coming spring/summer and have a get together for all the Monkeys to come out to my place for a weekend or so this coming year (2006) and have a get together, meet and greet, whatever you would want to call it. I have about 13 acres and at least 3 or 4 of that is cleared and could be used to set up tents or whatever. we could come up with a pig or even a few smaller ones and, after the butchering lesson ;) , have a pig roast. We could all just hang out for a couple days and swap stories, show off toys, maybe take a field trip to the range, let everyone see first hand the nifty new toy you all are sending me and just have a chance for everyone to get together and put faces to the names of the folks we talk to every day on here.
    I figure since we have folks spread all across the US as well as a few beyond that my place might even be a pretty ideal location since it would be pretty well centrally located (western Missouri just a hundred miles or so from Kansas city).
    So what do you all think? Sound like something that we would be interested in making happen? When would be a good time to set it for and so on?

    I'm always game. Might be a flight for me though. Drive time takes up too much fun time.
    I'd send a package ahead full of some stuff to play with :D

    I think we can deal with that, we have 2 or 3 tents at least and a couple more I think if we can find poles.
    KCI airport would be the closest at about 125 to 150 miles away unless one was able to catch a military flight into Whitman about 20 miles down the road.

    That could be interesting. lol
    Well looks like we have some intrest in makeing it happen, so when would we want to do it? Do we want to go for one of the holiday weekends like memorial day, Labor day, 4th of July or would we want to go for another time? I suppose the 4th may not be very nice for the folks from more northern areas since we are usualy over 100 then and humid but then too the begining or ending weekends would be a crap shoot, could be 90 could be 30, sunny, raining or a little snow or a little of all of the above over a few days. We do have that saying around here that if you dont like the weather just wait an hour, it will change. Have seen memorial day weekends when you had rain, snow, sun, upper 80s and low 40s or upper 30s all in a 3 or 4 day span.lol
    So any thoughts on a good time for it?

    You could fly in, rent a car, and then pick me up at the curb.
    On that note: Rent a Hummer!

    I'll be the guy on the curb.
