DEATH FLOAT 08

Time to get serious about reservations.

Float is August 2nd but you must be in Orofino, Idaho on August 1st as we launch at 10:00 a.m. on the 2nd. Make sure you make reservations at the Best Western in Orofino for the 1st and 2nd. At least.

Here's who I have confirmed:

Marsha (1mks), Maribeth (Embee), Jeanne (Jeannarie), Randy (Oldcougar) and husband), Donna (Smoke20) and husband, Katy (Koota) and Fred (Phred).

Maybe's:
Kelly (Chickfbrfefdrdrd) and brow-beaten husband)

If I have forgotten anyone, I'm sorry. I've managed to leave someone off every single time I've compiled the list. (Alzheimers is worse than the flu.)

Anyhoo, I need to get a more serious count so that I can get the rafts & coolers prepared.

(tinkling self with anticipation)

I suppose they would get all big and saggy on the float and then my swimsuit would look lumpier than usual. I can't have that.

sigh - will be there in spirit - I'll have to head out of my dry town to grab a bottle of jaeger for the send off (since I haven't had that in 17 years - I should only need one to release the spirit). I've been studying up on astral projection but don't know that I'll be ready by Aug 1

Omar and I are old friends. The difference between my suit and Marsha's, is that I won't have any extra room in mine.

I submitted a group request for this two days ago so we could discuss travel arrangements, rooms, etc., outside of the chats because these posts keep getting bumped way down before everyone who is coming sees it.

It says the editors will respond within 24 hours?

Oh come on. I've traveled across the country to Chicago and to Philly. What's one teensy trip from Jersey to Idaho?

Sorry to keep bumping this up but I get no response from the editors on my group request and I REALLY need an accurate count on who is coming and who isn't so we can coordinate rooms and how many cars it will take to get everyone up the river and how many rafts I need.

Thanks.

Hey Lori, Lodi, "Easy", I may come, but it would just be for a day or something, still working on getting the time off. I would like to "confirm" my spot, but can't until I hear from my job....sorry.

I don't know what this is. Are all Sploofusers invited? I noticed an old thread where there was a Sploofus event in Philly. I wish I had been an islander then since Philly is only about 30-40 minutes away from me! Anyway, if it is a Sploofus thing, unfortunately, I can't make it to Idaho. I sure would love to see it, though. I really enjoyed your WP, Lodi. Sounds like you live in a beautiful state.

Its for anyone who wants to come. I just need confirmations because there are a few things that have to be taken into consideration.

Sun & Oog? Are you guys in or out?

Jeremy, when will you find out?

This is the first I've heard of this and I wish Florida were closer to Idaho! I'd love to come and I've never been to Idaho. In fact I have a niece and family who move to Spirit Lake, ID from Eagle River, AK and I haven't seen them since my sister died in 1986! Isn't that sad? But I can't afford the airfare for a flight like that. Hope you all have a really great time. Next time plan something in the middle of the country, maybe!!!?

Flcyclist, there have been noises about having a meeting in Florida - there are lots of us down here, let's get one started!

Hey, Floridians, How 'bout it? Shall we try and plan something for late fall '08 or late winter '09 so the snowbirds can enjoy some warm?

Sorry, guys, I start a new job next week, so I'll be "squealing like a pig" here. No leave time accrued yet, and probably not a good impression to take a 5-day weekend so soon. If anyone wants to visit the Washington area over that weekend, I'll be around.

All I could get was the 2nd and 3rd off, a Friday and Saturday is pretty impossible to get where I work. Is there any way to work it where I still could show up on the 2nd? Or is that too late?

We have to be on the water by 10:00 a.m. on the 2nd. When is the earliest you could get there? Could you leave Friday after work?

smokydevil

Tue, 15th Jul '08 8:25 PM

I could, but I work the graveyard shift, so after work would be 7:30 am on Saturday. Add in the 7 hour drive and the earliest I would get there would be about 2:30-3:00 pm on Saturday. Oh well. Maybe next time then.
