Brontokon West Interest Thread
« on: October 15, 2013, 09:30:29 AM »

Exactly what it says on the tin. Toss out your thoughts, ideas, hopes and dreams about a possible meetup, someday, somehow, and probably westish.

For my purposes it would have been neat to do it this year since I still have to burn two weeks of vacation somehow but it's probably too late for that and we're entering into the holiday season.  Oh well.

Your turn!

I live in Vegas and make a pretty okay tour guide, but there's no way I'll get time off from work until February.

As much as I'd love to make the Journey West, I don't think I could afford it.

The anesthesiologist finally billed me for the surgery (that I had last year). To the tune of two month's disposable income.

So... Yeah.

Well, "broke" is maybe the wrong term. "Draining savings" is more accurate.

I could make it out to southern California for a weekend.

I'd definitely like to, but it would be sometime next year before I could even consider it monetarily.

I have an increasingly ludicrous stash of frequent-flier miles to burn, so as long as there's an airport somewhere in the vicinity, that could be a thing.

William and I are going to buy motorcycles in May so we maybe could make an adventure of it if you guys didn't do anything until next summer. Job be damned if we planned something early enough they would accommodate. Obviously, if you guys work something out before then we would have no problem with you guys doing you own thing, we live in Wisconsin after all.

Oh shit son!

What do you guys have in mind? IIRC, you guys have a truck, right? If you're going to buy used, the winter or late fall will net you some better deals. May is hot season, so prices will be up.

If you're buying new (and want to get next years's model year) that's less relevant. Same goes if your budgeting means the money will only come up next May.

I'm buying a new Triumph of some type. Budget really does not matter to me, I'm only waiting until MAY because I've been doing my GET HEALTHY YEAR and I will be done with it by May, This is going to be my present to me for getting healthy. ON THAT NOTE, I've lost 120 lbs since February.

I can't say as I'd recommend a road trip through the American southwest in the summer, on bikes or even in cars.  But if that's what you're into, bring plenty of water and travel at night.

They could always go down the west coast, or through Northern California. That seems like it'd be a much nicer drive.

I'm down for a Brontokon West. I don't think I have the vacation to pull it off this year unless you want us over for Thanksgiving, but I'm okay for any given three-day weekend next year.

I'll probably be in Prescott for Thanksgiving, so you might want to pass on that.

(Also t Thad I'll probably be in Prescott for Thanksgiving.)
