    A whole week in Las Vegas 3/2-3/9, where the weather is sure to be better than in Pennsylvania, with below freezing temps next week and a nice big snowfall coming on Monday!

    Pizza and beer with Swift and Ms. Swift at a nice restaurant in his home town. It was great meeting him (and her!) in person.

    I hope to be in Caffe Nero Clayton Street, Newcastle upon Tyne tomorrow for around 07:00, which I suspect is too short notice for anyone

    I would consider it obvious that several of the posters here are actually computer programs.

    I'll be in the neighborhood again in October but only briefly, as the Wife and I head to Leavenworth for Oktoberfest. I should be there again for another budget meeting before the end of the fiscal year, though. They just haven't set the dates, yet.

    Pretty much halfway between Gillian and myself, as well.

    Sister and I are in very first stage of planning a trip to China. I'm hoping to visit Hangzhou and its lovely West Lake especially. But another tour package (more days/expense) also includes Ningbo and Beijing. Doubt anyone here will be *there* when (and if)...will keep you all posted. I've not had a vacation in 15 years; LONG overdue. Older now, been through some rough financial times, had to cancel travel plans of 2011. So I'll *definitely* appreciate this.

    A meeting offer in reverse:
    I'm settled in Southern Ontario; specifically Cambridge, and expect to move to Waterloo at the end of November. If any Bauters are in, around or moving through the area, I'd be delighted to meet or host them for dinner.

    It's April, and Washington State is drying out. Is anyone interested in planning a gathering of Western Washington folk? If nothing else, there's always my faire and Treb's hurl late in the season.

    I'm home again from a 7500 km motorbike trip. This one took me and my riding buddy to Alaska where I had the pleasure of meeting Brett and his wife on July 22. We had a great dinner at a Mexican restaurant and then went to their home where I saw those adventures in DIY first hand.

    I think there was a comment earlier in the thread that if there are no pictures, then it didn't happen, so:

    It really was nice to meet you and Dan. We hope you had a good trip in spite of the rainy weather. As we mentioned, the Wife and I drove to Homer the next day and managed to catch a few not-so-rainy breaks even if they were still gray. We even saw a few humpbacks in the bay.

    And you don't know how often I've meant to stop and take a picture of that darned sign since it's my screen name on several forums. Consider it stolen! (With your permission, of course.)

    After doing the oil changes and checking out Cabelas, we rode to Seward in nice weather. We got a good meal at Chinooks. Unfortunately, the bakery you told us about was closed for the day. (BTW, regarding the oil change, that was great advice about the landfill: they have a nice clean, hard surface in the recycling area and even offered us a convenient collection pan.) It started to rain, hard, almost immediately as we started our return from Seward, and that changed our plans for further sight seeing or checking out Hatcher Pass.

    We fueled up in Palmer, and I asked if they could recommend a place to have breakfast. So we had a meal and loads of coffee at the Valley Hotel Cafe while waiting for the weather to break. Dan fell in love with their corn fritters. The waitress and other clientele were wonderful and wished us safe travels, seeming very concerned about our riding in that weather. It finally stopped raining at the pass about halfway to Glennallen. So, we did about 300 km in steady rain that day.

    The whole trip was an adventure. My new motto, stolen from a bumper sticker, is "Adventure before Dementia!" I've ordered a new rear tire, and it's been suggested that after I put it on, we need to do a trip to Wyoming...

    The landfill worked out even better than I thought, then. I had no clue they'd let you change it right there. The Wife and I both would have recommended the Valley Cafe as well. It's one of our favorite breakfast spots when we spend a day in the valley. I don't remember having eaten at Chinook's in Seward. We just always seem to eat at Ray's...good crab cakes and halibut in a dill cream sauce.

    Spoke on the phone to Torsten today.

    Tomorrow (Saturday here) I'll be picking him up and showing him around Wellington (N.Z.).

    He does sound Canadian!
