I take offense to that statement, despite you saying "no offense."

Okay, having said that, I said I'm open to moving over to the spring or fall in the future if overly frigid weather is that much of a turn off. I hope the majority would agree that either of those seasons are pretty reasonable. If you want to know why I'm not even considering the summer: 1) my body reacts very badly to heat and extreme sunlight, and 2) there are lots of other meets that go on in the summer (Montreal, London, maybe NJ again, etc.). It's important that when scheduling a meet of this scale that it doesn't come close to coinciding with other big meets, because then people will get worn out and things will get too crazy.

Day 2 was a blast. We went to the karaoke bar and got shit faced. Luis and cymbal cut me off, and the bar staff received a 30 dollar tip for being as fast as fucking possible in their boozeslinging. Hookah bar was delicious as well, and cymbal, gory and I ended the night with 25 minute march of death across staten island to his home.

Seeing those pics made me feel like I was there.

Oh, were any of the guys there gay?

It's important that when scheduling a meet of this scale that it doesn't come close to coinciding with other big meets, because then people will get worn out and things will get too crazy.

I have to agree that a Summer Meet would be a horrible idea. For those who don't live in NYC, you'll all be amazed as to how severe the tempurature extremes can be. Satan comes to NYC during the Summer for vacation. It's easy to hit 90 degrees or above. During a lot of these Meets, we walk around outside for several blocks. That's not happening in the Summer. Many of us would melt. A Winter Meet is fine if scheduled in late Winter. (Which is what Gory did.) I was comfortable on Saturday. Didn't even bother wearing a hat or my gloves.

Here's another problem with scheduling Meets too close together, it feels less special in a way. It just does. If you space them out, we get to discuss each one with plenty of time to move on to the other ones.

At one point during the karaoke, Danny decided to jump on top of me. I think he was lonely, so I put my arm around him and held him tight.

If folks are seriously considering a better season to visit, Fall or Spring are the best times.

Like late April/May. or September.

My personal two cents.

Im adding some of those photos over the ny photo album i started up on my fb, that way i can just pull those resized photos into the hub with minimal effort.

I will probably not include the photos of that turd.

Also, May works well for a meet. Its not too hot yet and the cold is long gone.

I finished adding the photos to that hub page. As i run into more, i'll sprinkle em in, but i think I'm done. If you are heavily opposed to a photo in there or you look particularly unhandsome, just drop me a pm and ill pull it. I have a meet next weekend so i wanted to make sure this was up fairly quickly.

Also, im switching servers tmrw, so there might be some minor downtime on my site.

photos and such

As opposed to just the ordinary kind of unhandsome? (LOL)

BTW, I just got into collecting watches and forgot to ask what you were sporting on Saturday.

Oh yes. For some odd reason my camera decided to date everything 200 years in the future. It got pretty harsh with the weather here after the meet, so we lucked out. Leaving nyc today and with that the meet is concluded. Cymbal's job really does serve the best chocolate cake in the world btw.

LOL. Thanks man. Anytime you wanna be bored as fuck and do nothing except drink, you're welcome down here as well. Though, I'm 99% sure that I'm going to have a rifle soon, so we can go to a firing range and shoot shit as well. I knew you were good people from chatting it up with you all the time, but I didn't expect us to be bro status LMAO. My guy Cymbal :)

Total budget for the meet including train tix = 700 dollars.

Getting wasted and having an awesome fucking time = priceless.

I've never been wasted for 5 days straight like that.

And damn right it was worth it. I brought two packs of cigs with me, and by day 2 of the meet, they were all gone.

LMAO. Course, I handed out a bunch of em. HEY MERC CAN I HAVE A CIG

(wasted as shit) HERE ALL OF YOU TAKE ONE.

lol.

Two thumbs up for the mirror image vid.
