September Vacation plans

Just letting people know so we can arrange visits and such. On or about September 22, I'm leaving Illinois and driving to High Point, NC to witness the wedding of my friends Jenn and Rob on the 23rd. On the 24th I'm heading to Duplin Winery in Rose Hill, NC to participate in the annual Grape Stomp. I'll likely hang around in that area for a day or so. Within the next couple days afterward, I'll head up to the Washington DC/Northern Virginia area to visit old friends from High School (who for some reason still live there). I also plan on trying to go see jelly_fish and her vineyard at that time and then back to Illinois via Ohio to do some more family rersearch. I'll be gone about 10 days all total. So anyone who wants to meet up, let me know so I can plan accordingly.

I'm sure Rose Hill won't be your only stop in ENC. Hint hint.

There's a castle thingy in High Point? What a White Castle burger place? Maybe I should check into that. My buddies Carla and Rob are probably just gonna get married at some church.

Later

Castle McCullogh I think it's called. It's a replica of a real castle.

Hmm, if you're through this area during the week, it'd be great to see you. We can get up some groceries and cook up a storm. Or something. I have no earthly idea. During the week is easier for me because I have daycare arranged, but if you're going to be in the area on the weekend, I can probably make arrangements, with this much notice. :)

I was just informed this morning that the wedding is on Friday the 22nd and not on the 23rd. But either way is good for me. Maybe we can get Lucas involved as well and whoever else might be around.

Meeting up with you and Lucas would be fun. Me and two of my favorite men. :P Trouble.

I'm sure that threesome could find some trouble to get into. Glad to see i'm one of your favorites. I'm in good comapny with the other one. I'd imagine I'll kill sometime with my buddy Brent in Lexington on saturday and head down to the Grape Stomp at Rose Hill on Sunday. So I'd be in your area on Monday.

Well I live in Columbus Ohio, which is usually on the way east. However, I will probably NOT be living here in that time frame. Plus I have a conference in Denver one of those weekends. Hehehehehe. Somethng to ponder...

I was assuming you would be moving slightly west at some point. I get through your part of Ohio a lot actually on business mostly but I have friends around there so I make a point of stopping to see people. One way or another I'll visit you folks at some point. Oh and you are not on my way east because I have to go southeast to get where I'm going. I'm also heading to Texas, New Mexico, Colorado and Utah this summer so I'm sure I'll catch you all somewhere. I go through Kansas to get to New Mexico.

Your direction from DC to Ohio might be in my direction, if you take I-70.

As a matter of fact it would be. I'd be glad to stop in. I love meeting my LJ friends. I'd love to meet all of them but the ones in Australia and Wales might have to wait a few years.

I guess I'll see you between the grape stomp in NC and your stop in DC. I have no idea what is going on then or where I will be, but one way or another we'll get together.

I figured, at some point we can give each other actual contact info and schedule something. I'm not a scheduling nazi when I travel. I hang pretty loose so I'm flexible on days and such.
