Default Planning for National PTO meeting in March

Just thought I should start a post so we can start discussing and planning our part in the PTO national meeting... Planned for March 14-16, 2003 in Texas....
It was brought up in another post that perhaps us "Illinoisans" could carpool and roadtrip down to Texas together....
This leads me to 2 questions....
#1-- How many of you from IL are interested in going down to Texas for the national get-together....
and
#2-- How many of those interested in going down to Texas would be interested in traveling in a group??

I am thinking when we get an idea of how many people we would have and where everyone would be, we could come up with the best plan....
Perhaps we could rent a van... and either plan a route to pick people up on the way or have a central meeting place....
Let me know....

You got all the good ideas flowing girl!! I am interested TOTALLY in the national PTO get together next March!! I can't say that I am for sure going at this point though, money such as it is...well I am sure you all know about that!
The carpool doesn't sound 1/2 bad, I bet it would be cheaper than an airplane. I know Enterprise car rental doesn't charge per milage (love that rental car company) so possibly getting something from them would be good.
Hmm...let me put my "thinking cap" on.

I'm in Toronto, and (as I explained on the other post) I'd definitely be interested! In fact, I'd be prepared to do a seminar or something...

BUT, A) I don't drive, and B) even if I did, I don't think I'd be allowed to drive someone else's vehicle in the States. (Insurance etc.)

So, if I get to Illinois, could I hitch a ride, and help pay for gas?

Also, if I come from another country, that makes this an INTERNATIONAL PTO MEETING, doesn't it? And if we get Soraya or Kristin to come, it becomes a WORLD PTO MEETING, right?

Also, Dave, maybe we could "pitch in" to a fund for those who can't afford the trip. I'd pledge $30 or $40 toward the fund...

I'll call it a PTO Christmas present.

Also, maybe I should only offer to do a seminar, PROVIDED KEN also does one! (Just trying to DARE him into sharing his wisdom with us all!)

Menolly....
If you can get to IL.... you can defiitely hitch a ride the rest of the way to Texas!!!
Would you be flying to IL?? Or if you are flying would you just fly to Texas?? If you fly to IL.... Fly to Chicago and I will pick ya up!!!
I do like your idea about a "pitch in" fund.... See what happens when us PTO people get started thinkin?!?

Negative on flying to the United States.

I'm sticking to trains and buses for now... (Still post Sep. 11 nervous, y'know).

You're definitely on, regarding me getting to Chicago and hitchin a ride with you! As I said, I can't drive, but I'll help pay for gas. And I tell fantastic jokes and know some really great (off-colour?) songs. hehehehehe

Menolly...you are TOO FUNNY!!
I SOO ENJOY reading your posts, you have a wonderful sense of humor! All I need to do is read a post of yours & I am happy again!

Ok so are we gonna do the carpooling? That sounds good to me & I have a feeling it would be cheaper than flying. I wanted to fly to TX to visit a friend about a month ago & the ticket ALONE about had me gasping!!

IT'S A DATE!

Gawd! My hubby's dead almost 3 years now, and my very first date since then is with a WOMAN, in a foreign country, who's hubby is in jail, and we're going to COWBOY and OILWELL country to meet a bunch of other women, whose hubbies, brothers and sons are also in jail. Oh, forgot to mention some of the people we'll meet on this date USED TO BE in jail!

Hot dang, my life is interesting!

Oh well, I always told my son, that as soon as he leaves home, and I'm done the "responsible thing" I'm gonna become a wild woman!

Maybe I'll start a little early...

(Did I mention this foreign country we're going on a date to, has had a tad of trouble with SPIES and TERRORISTS lately? And their head-honcho calls himself "Dub-Ya", and pronounces "ter-ROR-ist" like "tourist"?)

JDW:

You wanna hear the best joke?

I asked my boss this morning if I can have a week's holidays in March.

She said sure, then asked me where I'm going.

I SWEAR I said "Well, I might be giving a seminar on human rights at a conference."

If she only knew!

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA

Well how about another little road trip up here to Connecticut...Ah good grief...I'm just flying, come on AC?!!! Nah, that right you have the group there in NC...Wait a minute, I know there are some New Yorker's here...Speak up, let's work on this...We'll do a caravaan thing...and we'll all meet up somewhere in Kansas!!! LOL!

We should just start a thread and title it: Those who are 99% percent sure they are going to the PTO Getogether...the 1% will leave a little 'breathing room'...( maybe just put your name and how many will be with you)


?????????????????????

Can't wait to meet you all!!!

I hope that I will be able to make the PTO meeting in March. The way finances are going I am not too sure. Oh well I guess I will have to wait until then.

DJOHNSON,
Start a change jar. Put all you coins in it everyday. You will be surprised how much you can save up with just the change you throw in everyday.

I went to Hawaii on saving this way. I have a New Zealand jar started now.
