It'd be close to 88 bucks there and 88 bucks back. So 44 bucks split. Hmm. Plus 30 bucks for tickets. 74 bucks. And hotel rooms, food, so on.

Probably about 200+ for a weekend of fun! :D

Thing about dogstopper is... he'll ask you to text him, & then tell you that you have the wrong number because he doesn't recognize it.


If you had said hey man, this is no2, I'd have been like..."OH!". No, instead, someone randomly text me saying, "Hey, I can't meet tonight becuz of atl being in the way" 3 weeks after we first communication...

Anyway, yeah, Kilorn, we need to meet up, and you too craig.

If it's one thing I learned from a crying man (actually, several), it's to stay away from strippers. Never been in a strip club, never will be in one. The idea of a bunch of nerds getting together at a strip club doesn't interest me at all.

Personally, I'd rather spend that money on my gun fetish.

BTW, if you decide to come BD, I might could let you stay in my house in your own room with your own bathroom, and give you some authentic country-bumpkin cookin'. Even vegetarian dishes, in the event you're opposed to eating free-range venison, squirrel, duck, dove, quail and pork.

ETA: If that don't interest you, I got something that passes for a swamp in my backyard. You could stay out there, I'd loan you a .22. I'm sure you could find plenty of critters to survive on if that's more your style.

We should put together our own mini meet up sometime soon with just the three of us to go out for a drink or two. I'll happily be a designated driver since I don't drink.

I think doggstopper would make a better designated driver, assuming they even let him in the bar(s). but then again sense two of you don't drink maybe you should find another venue.

What's wrong with strippers? Yeah, some are retarded, some are scary, but a lot are just women who know they can make a lot of money off of horny guys. Everybody has a price, they just happen to be comfortable setting theirs in such a way that they make some damned good money.

I dated a stripper briefly when I was stationed in California, near San Diego. She started doing it to pay for school, but realized she was making more then she ever would have with her degree, so she kept doing it while she could. It was pretty nice, too. I never had to pay for anything, she had better cardio then I did (I was in pretty damned good shape as a young Marine), and it was the most casual relationship I've ever been in.

So you're going to avoid strippers, but think it would be a good idea for a woman to go stay in the house of some dude from the internet? Riiiggghhhtttt..... I think I saw that shit on 60 Minutes.

Forgot that he was so young, damn I feel old. Well, Craig can drink all he wants and we'll get him home one way or another.

I wouldn't mind a DIC meet up in a few places.

Texas could even work for me because my Aunt is moving to Houston soon, and I told her I'd definitely come and visit once she did (I actually really like the Texas wilderness).

Other places work for me too though. Atlanta is close (though I hate the city), got friends in Chattanooga. Ohio is cool too, got friends there as well. Pennsylvania has family, New England has family, Washington is just BEAUTIFUL.

California though... fuck California.

Being in Missouri, I'm pretty much equal distant from everything :D Most of my family out of state is the Kentucky/West (By God!) Virginia, or New Mexico.

Sounds like a plan to me! I am in the Waco area so Houston wouldn't be nothing but a hop, skip, and a jump for me! And taking a few tips and tricks from some of you Gurus wouldn't hurt!
