I think it took a few days to get back to this thread, Cat. Daylong playback workshop, and then a local TEDx event in Vancouver. So, looking at the dates... I think the weekend of Dec 18/19/20 is OK, for now. Though we don't have any playback stuff happening around that time... unless we decide to organize a potluck or some other event...

Hi Cat, Amazing to see you come up on my computer. It has been so many years since seeing you. I see you are living in Seattle. Hope all is well with you.

I stopped with the Xmas craze years ago, and have been much happier since, so it is totally fine with me. Up here there is also Catherine. Chris lives on Bowen Island, and I know he is quite busy and is traveling and all... and we can still let him know.

So we could definitely do something. I know that my schedule is quite full, with several ongoing contracts, yet I am sure there is a weekend somewhere, or a few days somewhere else, where I will be allowed by my boss to separate from my computer... ;-)

Hi Cat - So exciting we live so near each other. It will be nice for future retapping of the energy from the conference. Thank you for the ride and offering to bring me home. I would love to see my kids before they go to bed sunday night. They are usually going to bed around 9:30 pm. I don't need to leave early, but if we could plan to leave as soon as it is over that would be great. If it ends up that you need to stay later, I can always go to plan B and take the train home. I am totally flexible. It would be nice to share a ride with new friends!

hey that was fast.... I live very near the zoo and green lake - n 48th St.
If it is too much trouble, I can have my husband pick me up from your place. I am just happy to have a travel buddy.

Hi Cat - That would be most excellent! I would be willing to pitch $20 toward gas. I do have a suitcase, but could switch to a duffle bag if you don't have much trunk space.
One more thing - would you be able to bring me to Seattle? Just wonder if I need to have my husband on alert to come meet us somewhere Sunday evening.
I look forward to meeting you !
Thanks so much!!

Hi Cat,
Collaboration sounds great. Only because of the distance (Seattle vs Almere (Netherlands) I think its best to start sharing experiences by mail or this network. Greetings, Niels
