...flights are cheap and regular from the UK to NYC...motivation is the deal maker.


I just checked, you can get a round trip on United for under $500. Not too bad.

I'll be a last minute attendee, it'll all count on how lazy or not I've been the week or so before.
Has a specific date been agreed yet?

November 12th. And I think your attendance would be appreciated by a mutual friend who will remain unnamed.


I do not care if he comes or not but thanks for thinking of me.

Sand munching ukip voting sheep debaser that he is.

Hahaha! That is priceless!
You really are in a grump tonight nonspecific!
I've got a little fleece suit just your size...don't you worry.

Yep, I found average £430, even cheaper closer to the day.
I did a job Saturday and Sunday, paid my son £100 per day for labouring, and after materials I still earned enough to pay the plane ticket and have £500 in my pocket. Cash isn't the issue, more motivation and laziness lol.
If a load of people are going then it will be more attractive, I'm more the spontaneous last minute kind of bloke.

I'm making a list... I'm checking it twice!

And to reiterate:

November the 12th has been decided, it's a Saturday.

We have a decent handful already committed, and another handful interested.

The more the merrier, right? I can't wait to meet you nutjobs.

Ah that sounds cool, I'd do a weekend, maybe Friday to Monday, that could be fun.
Like I said though, it will be a spontaneous decision the week or so before...I don't usually plan anything more than 7 days in advance.

You sound fun.

And now that I know how you tick... about two weeks from the event I'll start working my magic on you, triggering your spontaneity, and reeling you in.

I look forward to meeting you and I'll be putting you on the definitely coming list.

Haha I'd love the adventure!
Travelling alone is my favourite to be honest, I like the excitement, the randomness of the people I happen to meet.
An ATS meetup would be a fantastic story, who knows, no guarantee I'll get back to the UK alive...life insurance is up to date though so aside from being tortured in a Saw movie style I'm definitely on the 'drawn to doing it' style.

I'm just north of NYC but think I'll pass and stay anonymous lol. Nice opportunity, though

This sounds awesome. I would seriously consider it, but for the little person that literally feeds off me. And I'm not bringing him anywhere near Augustus!

So you would rather hang around with a tiny little vampire that cannot even speak English than the motley crew Geez and I are assembling for your viewing pleasure? We're hurt.



Only copious amounts of alcohol will help us deal with this soul-shattering denial.

I hear you. She pretty much dissed us to hang out with a perpetually pooping parasite.

And, no, I wasn't talking about DBCowboy.

The baby can't come. I think I might be unfit to parent an infant with all that going on. Or I could refrain from the shenanigans like pretend I'm pregnant again- which is no fun. Or, leave the baby and pump all weekend.

I know for sure that... I'm not going to get up at the a$$ crack of dawn on Saturday though. I plan to be fresh as a daisy for the evening, lol. So, I'm thinking mid to late afternoon we can all gather if a museum or something like that is in order. Then dinner/drinks come evening. Bars are only open till 2 am I believe. So there's that to consider.

It's going to be a disaster for sure. We're all paranoid as fug. And I am going to need several drinks to avoid a mental breakdown.

I put you down on the definitely coming list btw, just sayin!

It would would've been cool to meet you.

We vote for the later.

Maybe we could even auction off a chance to help you to random strangers and donate the proceeds to the site for enhanced security.

4am and in some cases, if you know someone, the afterhours is just getting started.

Proceeds from milk pumped (and only pumped- I don't get into adult breastfeeding fetishes), would fund my trip. Maybe a little kickback to the site, but it's hard work making milk, so I should get to have the fun!
