We talked a little about meeting up maybe around the first or second weekend of April in Salem.
There is a great little coffee/tea place we could start at:

Gulu-Gulu Cafe

There is this crazy bookstore down the street where the books are new and discounted and piled up so high they look like they are going to tip over. It's kinda fun and they do have a new age section for those of you interested. (I can't think of the name of the store right now)

Then there are tons of places for lunch afterwards.

What does everyone think?

Are you interested in coming?

Is Salem a good location for you? If not what do you suggest?

Does the second or first weekend in April work for you?

I think at that point my days off will change to Sundays, is Sundays good for everyone else?

I would absolutely love to go but will need to hitch a ride with someone close to me. I don't think my car could make it that far.

Yes to all of the above!! :grin: :bananadance:

I lurve Salem!!! :wub:


Terra, I know that all the others there yesterday were interested in doing Salem so I'm sure you'll be able to hitch a ride up with one of them. I got your voicemail last night but I wasn't answering the phone cuz The Tudors were on, and we were eating a (light) dinner. (I was still a bit full from my raviolis, but Mike hadn't eaten anything.)

If you decide you want to bring the BF along, I can drag Mike too, and the guys can entertain themselves while we swap or do other "book-ish" things. Heh, we could make them keep track of steals. :P

In any case, I just didn't want you to have to leave him out if he's never been up to Salem, and Mike likes it there himself, though I wouldn't invite him if it was just us gals. So just something to keep in mind if he gives you the sad pouty face. :pout: LOL

I am thinking maybe we can rotate this around every time. I feel bad for poor Liz, she had 2 hours last time and if she comes to Salem that will be 2 hours 20 minutes for her. I hope you can make it Liz.

Apolonia :wub:

I am undecided at this point. It is quite a hike for me and I am always
alittle nervous about driving on Hwys/roads that I am unfamiliar with.

I'll think on it.

Well it is open for discussion but Sundays seem to work for most people.

Hi there!

I think that I should be able to do a daytrip to Salem on one of those Sundays in April. I previewed it with my husband (who will be on kid duty all day) and he was good with it.

I'd be happy to drive folks from Marlborough if anyone's interested..... liz, joy? Terra? Anyone else? That way, it wouldn't feel quite so far to drive and we could start the "meet-up" earlier! :lol:

I'll take you up on that ride and chip in for gas. I can drive to your house and then we can go from there.
Liz if you want to drive to my house then you can hitch a ride with me to rootmartins. That way you don't have to drive all the way either.

Yay! I'm glad this is all starting to come together! :bananacheer:


ETA - BTW, Ap, I looked at the webpage and yup, now I know where Gulu is now since I know Essex St. Part of Essex is pedestrian traffic only though it looks like this is the part where it isn't, but yeah, I know a few ways to get to that part of town myself. :)

No throw your name in the hat again. I don't have a limit per person. Plus I have to start to but down on my shipping costs so I'd rather give someone the books in person rather than mail them.

Speaking of which, if I decide to go to London (it's about 50/50 right now) I'd be happy to take along any books anyone want to give or owes to anyone going to convention.

We are bidding for our new schedules in the next 2 weeks. So I should know then what days off I have, and if I don't have Sundays I can start to work on getting a specific one off.

I should know tomorrow if I have every Sunday off or if I need to get someone to work for me. So I will post tomorrow night and see what weekend we can pick. Also I have decided that I cannot go to convention so any weekend in April is open (pending the bid and the whole day off business.)
