So I have been entertaining the thought to organize a meeting with PF friends, and dialogueing in chat about it yesterday, I felt enough encouragement to proceed. If there are enough firm indications and commitments to visit, it can be done, and at resonable costs. And I'm more than happy to organize things. The whereabouts. http://web.mac.com/stoterr/Site_4/Welcome.html [Broken]: http://web.mac.com/stoterr/Site_4/Welcome_files/Montcru.jpg [Broken] It's in southern France close to the Pyrenee mountains. Try 'Allieres France' in google maps to get an idea. The time. Balancing all factors, second half of April 2010 seems to be the best. Air fares and other costs are still on minimum rates, while the spring is at it's best. It would not be the first time when the swimming pool was already in use at that time. No guarantee however. The duration, coming transatlantic, minimum stay would be a week at least, I would think to deal with jet lag, while we fill the time with hiking, horseback riding, swimming or skiing or just having parties with bbq, whatever. Two weeks would be no problem either, each on individual wishes. Of course there are minimum and maximum attendance numbers, accommodation wise, but we could deal with that as it arises. So what do you think, would you come? Any caveats?
