sounds like somewhere northwest of where i am would be centrally located... what do you guys think?
If you would all drive up to Fresno, I'd treat you to lunch and a tour of the "facilities." LOL!! (And I'd see if my sis could drive her Camaro IROC down for us to drool over)

Yvonne, I would love to come up and visit and see your animals and actually meet you in person. I am afraid an upcomming vacation will prevent it this year, but perhaps next summer I could take you up on your invite if it still stands. When all your critters are awake.

I always like to give "the tour." Next year would be better as right now I have three projects going at the same time and the place is a mess! I'm building wooden sheds for the Manouria and Sulcata and I'm adding top soil and horse manure to a section of the Leopard pen so I can enlarge the Manouria pen into it and plant more rain forest. I try to do a little bit on each project every day. I'm about ready to look in the Classified to see if I can find a reputable handy-man to finish the sheds!

Josh sorry but when it comes to Purple, Red or Cameros(fast cars) I just sort of lose my head :D

Ok this is my suggestion:
Pasadena would be about
44 miles from Huntington Beach
46 miles from Thousand Oaks
36 miles from Santa Clarita
36 miles from Brea
52 miles from Highland
Or Monrovia, or Sierra Madre Even Glendale all these places are pretty much half way between most of us give or take a couple of miles. Anybody else got Ideas?

I can certainly offer suggestions. What sort of a meeting place did everyone have in mind? A restaurant? Bar? Park?

a nice locally-owned family restaurant would probably be best. if cory's really going to bring his galap down, maybe a park would be better...? its really up to you guys. for me its more about the company than the venue.

There are many places we could meet, including restaurants and parks. We'll just need to figure out what time of day to meet and what the requirements are for our group. Do we want to eat? How many of us will there be? Do we have anything specific to discuss, or are we just gonna hang out (meet and greet)?

I think this is (correct me if I am wrong) a meet and greet. If we meet on the weekend I will be there. Other than Oct 18-28 thats vacation time.

meet and greet is right...
there will probably be <10 of us... maybe a pizza parlor or something similar would suit us best?
i think we can probably narrow everything down to weekends, so please post which weekends you are NOT available

i work at a pizza place in granada hills, right off the 118 at balboa. zip code 91344. theres room for 10 of us to talk and eat, but there isnt a place to have Littlefoot. or maybe i just shouldnt bring her. i dont want to keep her in a box. when she gets really scared, she just poops all day, and thats really not good for her at all.

another idea... i can get pizza, and we can meet at a park. so she can wander around and we can eat pizza.
