    So where in MD is everybody from? I grew up in a little town called Snow Hill. It's about 25 mintues from OC and about 20 minutes from Salisbury. Went to SSU for college, and moved to Newark, DE (near Wilmington) for about 2 years. Now I'm back in MD, living in Havre de Grace, and working in Baltimore, but I still go back to Salisbury/OC/Snow Hill 2-3 weekends a month. Sometimes I've felt like the only SW fan in the state - my friends like SW, but they're more of the casual fan type, whereas I'm still pretty avid. I don't know anyone up here in HarCo that's a fan, and no one in my office is. My girlfriend isn't, and other than posting on TF.N, I don't really get to talk SW with anyone.

    Long story short, when is there going to be a meeting?

    Ah, a fellow Salisburian. How are things in the "Crossroads of Delmarva" today?

    I'm in Garrett County :p

    Can't we meet like in Frederick or Hagerstown so we all have to do an equal amount of driving? Salisbury is most likely four hours from me.

    If you live in GC, saerah, Salisbury is probably more like 5+ hours from you.

    And I wasn't advocating having the meeting in Salisbury, I just want to know where my fellow SW fans live in MD.

    Garret County, eh? Did you go to FSU? I came up to FSU for parties a few times. Not much to do in that town except get drunk, get high, and go play on Dan's Rock.

    The folly of youth......ah, I remember it fondly.

    Getting cold there yet?

    EDIT: I'm all for a meeting wherever it is. As much driving as I do, driving out to Garret County, or anywhere, is just a walk in the park for me.

    We could all take a nice 5.5 mile hike from Herrington Manor to Swallow Falls :p

    It's been mild here the past few days with the sun out, but with dense fog at night, and not burning off until after 10 AM. The nights have been chilly--in the lower to mid-40's. The leaves are about gone now, save for a few yellow-leaved trees here and there. I took a walk out at Herrington Manor and I saw a lot of brown in the landscape--winter is on its way.

    Yeah, but at least you have better paying jobs downstate. Garrett County is nice to look at and visit, but it's not so nice to live here.

    I live in Rockville. You all live in another state from me.

    It's a whole different world up here. And three hours from Rockville.

    Doesn't seem like there are many active posters from MD. I'm trying to spread the word in the JCC and the 3SA, but it doesn't seem to be working.

    Maybe if I start telling people that they can see nude pics of me here, they'll start posting? No? Maybe nude pics of Angelina Jolie?

    Well, I don't think it's every really been terribly active in here, but oh well, what can you do? Besides post around here maddly spreading the word. ;)

    Oh yes, and good ol' Salisbury is the same as ever. Literally the same.

    I'm from Pasadena, which is about 20 minutes from Baltimore. I wouldn't mind meeting in Frederick though. I know the area pretty well since I went to school 15 miles north of there.

    The mall would be a nice place to meet. There are some nice restaurants around there, and it's right off of I-70.

    *shrugs*

    Anyone up for a meeting this weekend or next perhaps?

    This weekend probably isn't doable for me because of prior obligations. But I don't want that to affect anyone else's decision. Plan the meeting for whenever you guys want it, and I'll do my best to make it. I've got a wacky schedule, and it's much easier for me to just try to work things in rather than plan around them.

    Back when this group was is in its infancy, we decided to hold our meetings in Central Maryland because that happened to be the central spot for the majority of the members. Unfortunately, this did leave a few of our members with a greater distance of travel.

    Weekends are bad for me, at least until December, I've got rehersals and all, but I should be able to try and come after that date, provided I can get up there. :p

    Central Maryland works for me. Like I said before, anywhere in MD works for me - I'm used to driving all over the state.

    As a side note, what would everyone like to do at the meeting? Since it seems like not many of us know each other, maybe something fun to break the ice, like paintball?

    That was just a half-hearted suggestion, but if anyone likes that idea, feel free to jump on the bandwagon.

    Maybe there is hope that the group can be reborn. :)

    Paintball is... fun. Me playing is very interesting though, lol.

    Of course, I'll probably have to wait another year and a half for my license to participate in any of this. :(

    I just can't make it if its in central Maryland. Too much of a trip for me. And if it's late in the day, I'd probably have to stay at a hotel.

    Maybe you should try like paying attention to the rules here before you get yourself banned. You spammed those forums.

    Anyhow, paintball is a good idea if like everyone did that, just kinda sounds like it would cost money, more money then just going to a mall, hanging out kinda of a deal. But don't change plans cause of me, I wouldn't attend anyway, too far away.

    I live in Frederick, so that works for me.

    Oh, and my family has a cottage around the corner from the pier at Public Landing, so I've been to Snow Hill many times.

    Hehe, it seems that so many people are from this area... yet no one lives here anymore. Except for me. ;)

    Well, I'm back after a little "banning". So what's the plan?
