I'm going to be the furthest from Thaed (I think)...but I don't mind driving to Palm Beach.

It was, of course, just a suggestion.

I think 75 is the fastest, but I am not totally sure. The Gonads would know better. I am not necessarily against going West Palm, if that is what we end up deciding. I am just trying to be nice.

The Gonads - that just sounds wrong! Maybe it's time to ask unca Dave to change my user name??

If we are going to West Palm I would just go directly east, pretty much just following SR 80 just to the south of Lake Okeechobee which is a straight shot in to WPB. That would be quicker than going south on 75 to Naples across Alligator Alley and then north on 95 to WPB.

I thought you would appreciate that.

If WPB is better for this, that is fine. No big deal to drive there, and it is also closer to Orlando (hint, hint).

But I know nothing about that area.

<--- Threadkiller??? LOL

Seriously though, there are many places to eat up here depending on what kind of food you're looking for. One option might be CityPlace, which is kind of like CocoWalk (where we had dinner in Miami at Cafe Tu Tu Tengo) with quite a few restaurants. There's a great one called Columbia (this is really good and different), Legal Seafood, Cheesecake Factory and others.

We can go with whatever you all decide.

I go to palm beach all the time. I might be there then... if so, I'd attend.

The City Cellar is a good deal if you are into wine and cheese... but one of my favorite breakfast places in the world is there near Lake Worth (pelican something I think) maybe the Pelican Restuarant?

So have there been any definite plans made?
Any decisions on logistics?
Or where we'll meet?

Ok, the hurricanes gone. Any idea on what's up with the PB/Thaed meet?

Did Thaed decide to rent a car? If so, then maybe EddyJ's place is the best bet (well, if power is restored by then, of course).

Sorry, I have a bit of OCD.

That's ok, my daughter. We'll just up your meds.

I think the ball's in your court, Thaed. Are you renting? Or do you need a ride? That will help determine where we dine.

Not sure if I'll be able to make this. Still don't have power, not sure what's going on with school. No gas yet.

Hopefully, but who knows?

Hopefully every thing down south will be ironed out by then. I think FPLs November 12th restoration date is more of a CYA date. Gasolines getting scarce though.

We'll have to just play this one by ear, I think. Hopefully it all pans out ok.

Sadly, things being what they are these days, my fantasy of renting a mustang convertible must be relegated to maybe renting a bicycle one day while I am there.

I will have a car in Atlantic City, however, and I'm going to try like hell to make the NYC meet.

Okay, so, we need to either meet in Palm Beach so T-man doesn't have to travel, or figure out a ride for him to get wherever this ends up being held. That's if it's even possible after Wilma.

Given I have power, I can probably still host something (if Thaed gets that ride). Palm Beach is on the November 22nd list (before all power is restored) so it may be hard to find a place to eat.
