Oh boy.  Possibly is all I can say.  I have only two weeks of vacation left, I think and at least one week I need to reserve for going home to visit and I'm planning a small trip for this March.

This might mean I could have a few days left for this adventure, but it may be a bit tight.

Oh - and if we want a projector for presentations and/or those newfangled moving picture things, I have one. Also a portable easil for flipcharts and equipment for filming anything we'd care to film. Perhaps we could do a segment for the SGU to use on the show?

The collective location of interested parties is making me think that Ithaca might be a more convenient venue. It is still a bit of a drive but more accessible to Canada...

If I were to dream big we'd be starting our own video cast, chronicling the antics of fun loving skeptics over the course of a few days together. I would edit together an honest documentary - as in all footage not redacted by a person on film at the time would be uploaded to be watched by anyone who wants the uncut reality - with short episodic tales cut from the raw footage - say one 15 minute story every week.

If it worked, we'd gather every 3-6 months for another meeting, and do it all over again.

...but that's a bigger sort of dream, right?
