I’m reposting this post from an earlier thread, so that it’ll go to everyone (so pardon anything that makes no sense as a new thread—i’m feeling lazy!):
4-6 weeks sounds reasonable to me. However, if you’re thinking about booking a place for a meet ‘n’ greet, it might be worthwhile to start making calls now, give them the very rough estimate, and ask them when they would want a more definitive answer.
Any suggestions for venues from folks who live in/near Vegas? Shah? TajLV?
I wonder whether there’s a way, without changing your own location to Vegas, to get a list of members who live there.
I’m just thinking out loud here, too. 6 years ago
I know I have not communicated on this much lately, but this goal is very much in my mind… I just had a friend go to Vegas for the Day to see InterBike, (aka…Rid’ndirtybikeboy) and so its such a do able trip, in fact 24-48 hours of Vegas,
is all I could handle, due to Bright lights, noise, and light pollution…LOLOLOL…
But I wanted to say I am still up for creating and playing at this goal…
a couple of things I saw this past week, I have a friend who is a guide for Exum he may be up for coming down to help guide at the Red Rocks climb area, he young, super smart, handsome, and look out could be a Ambcrombie and Fitch model…but he is really great with people, and rocks…
I also had to laugh so hard, I was Watching Sex and the City, where meranda rides the bull at a Cowboy Bar in Manhatten? and her shirt flies open…and she is sooooo going after the whole wild girl scene…pretty funny… started thinking not sure if that’s me….but then thinking, yeah that’s me on 2 spaten optimators…
just thought i would keep in communication, Love and Light, jennk 6 years ago
But only if Dorian is going. And if he promises to pick me up from the airport on his horse, or maybe in his pick-up truck, oh and says dawg a lot, maybe tawco, perhaps some other stuff. I’m sure he’ll think of something.
Really though, I don’t mind as long as he has his cowboy hat on.

After much thinking, I am afraid I’ll have to give up on this goal.
Mainly because I have already been there before (in 1994) and would prefer to save money on other trips, since there are still so many countries and wonderful cities in the U.S. that I want to go to!
Moreover, I am not very keen on Las Vegas, don’t really like the gambling environment. Ironically, we’re going to build the world’s most expensive integrated resort in Singapore..Ha, the successful bidder was an American co from Las Vegas, called “Sands”!
For those will make it to Las Vegas later on, enjoy yourself there and remember to have loads of fun!!!
Hope you all have a great and exciting weekend!!! Cheers!! 6 years ago
Soo just checking on line for the Red Rocks climb area, its pretty
technical routes, which is good for the super experienced,
but i am hoping to find out if there is “school room” section of rock to goof around on for beginners, a top rope type area…
so doing more inquiring…
also saw a country music star photo in the paper today, she
had on a killer t-shirt,it read “i rode the bull at GILLEY’S”
ohhhhh, i so want that t-shirt….
ohhhh, the things that motivate us to do the crazy things we do…lololol—xojk 6 years ago
I just had a girl friend come back from Vegas, she mentioned the Vehetian was very nice, not sure on the PRICE?,
also the Belagio… being just a great place to stay…Price?
LOVE!!!!, the shuttle idea, i will get on line right now
and maybe i can call a climbing shop to get some beta…
I like the lunch idea, that could leave open the night
for open plans,
we might all end up at the same spot or not?
Again, is there a way to find out if other groups 43T gatherings have had success with certain, schedules or activities?
off to create…thanks for all the work, jennk 6 years ago
My baby will barely be a month old. Not likely I will be traveling anywhere! Sorry friends, my thoughts will be with you though! :) 6 years ago
...in that the EMP conference is in Seattle from April 19-22. Did we settle on a weekend and I missed it? 6 years ago
For as much as I’d love to meet a slew of 43things folks I honestly can’t commit to a trip during this time frame. I’ll keep watching this space and if I can I will! Have fun & slap a stripper on the butt for me!! 6 years ago
I found some beta for the LV 43people brace for impact tour…
there is a bar at the end of the strip, Jillies (this is waiting to be confirmed ???)
but the rumor on the street is… it has the
going, paid corporate, mtn biking fiend…so i am on the push to secure this beta…
this is all according to ride'ndirtybikeboy, who is a Las Vegas
he also mentioned some other sites. like the shark tank at one of the casinos…??? some of the rollercoasters on the hotels, a mardi gras, ride and party…? and he said…
going to Hoover Dam (i am not into it) but he thot for sure
we would want a bumper sticker that said “i ate a dam dog at..”
i can’t remember now, but it seemed way too chevy chase, Family Lampoon Vacation for me!...
oh, and then i mentioned the erotic CirqueD’solie that is playing right now,and he said his friends saw it and yeah, its
very erotic and NOT FOR KIDS… good let’s go..
any way just some ideas to bounce around, not sure group rates on a show, or such? but an idea…or 2…
what ever we decide I am psyched that the energy is great around it…go big or go home…hugs, jennk 6 years ago
...is a Vegas weekend for me, but I’d be happy to play host. There’s something for everyone here, and someone for everything, too. Bring it on! 6 years ago
that I may actually be able to get to this. Will have to wait until a little closer to the time to know for sure though.
Sounds as though it’s going to be fab!! 6 years ago
and I’m hoping it doesn’t fall in the middle of my finals, if it does no trip for me..
If it doesn’t God help you all. 6 years ago
When I asked my husband if we could go to Vegas in April he asked why. (Which I knew he would. He always has to know WHY.) I said, ”...because of 43T.” I was shocked when he answered with, “We’ll talk about it.” Instead of “Oh, you’re crazy! You and your 43T!”
April may be too soon for us to go on a trip, but we haven’t completely ruled it out either. I’ll keep my eye on this thread to see what’s going on. I would love to go back to Vegas and met everyone! Thank you meand4girls for the invite.
In the meantime I thought I would post a photo from when hubby and I were there on our honeymoon. heha! 6 years ago
I really wish I could go; I’ll wish with all my heart but if I can’t make it for whatever reason , please hug eachother in my name, because that is what I’d like to do if I get to go.
And thanks for inviting me!!! 6 years ago
Hit the wrong button!
Let’s try this again…
I can’t quite commit to this yet- but I will definitely keep it in mind and I would LOVE to attend!! 6 years ago
than flying and
stealing renting a car…
Any ideas of what there is to do in Vegas? I haven’t been there since I was a kid… 6 years ago
April 14th and 15th
Arpil 21st and 22nd
either works fine for me…I’ll just take the whole week off…
See everyone there…:D… 6 years ago
I’ve never been to Vegas, what a great excuse to go!! yippeeee 6 years ago
Mid May is really bad for me, but pretty much any other time, I think I’m good. Earlier in the year is better since things will start getting busy for the 08 elections later in 2007. 6 years ago
But if it does happen, the key meal has to be here:
Just google up this place and read the reviews if my testimonials and those of friends don’t convince. But I can’t put this any plainer—TRUST ME. I am NOT kidding. 6 years ago
I technically HATE VEGAS,its not natural, its spendy, strippers, booze, gamblers, getting lost in casinos, crowded, smokers, its 110 degrees…in the summer, ...
BUT FOR 43things, I will sooooo GO TO VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!
and CREATE what gets CREATED…
OK, THINGS I DO SEE Possible about VEGAS,
Dress up, booze, strippers, casinos…and (just kidding)...
yes, the music, to create a meet up based off a concert
would be amazing! thumbs up Neko Case…
I could see an outing out to RED ROCKS, the climbing area, if people wanted to do an activity just a ways out of the city, to
mingle, be a bit different, other sites, or settings, could work as well…
has anyone talked with other groups who have done this?
Thanks for the Invite, I am so up for playing and helping create this…Love and Light, jennk 6 years ago
what i think we should do is take a look at the concert schedule in vegas and plan this when a really cool act is playing.
i, personally, am partial to either jenny lewis or neko case ;-) 6 years ago
