    Dallas! Love going to Austin though, so much life there.

    If you found a middle point between Austin, Dallas, San Antonio, and Houston, that's where I am.
  • MannimarMannimar Member Posts: 973
    @Peak, no name city or slightly major?
  • PeakPeak Member Posts: 838 @ - Epic Achaean
    @Mannimar on the major side

    I'm in Houston, not too far from downtown. I wouldn't mind meeting some feel Texan Achaeans, even if it meant a bit of a drive.
  • TuroiTuroi Missouri :(Member Posts: 341 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    @Morro from what I remember, EVERYTHING is a bit of a drive in Texas :P

    @Turoi Hah. It's not so bad unless you're going to another town... or maybe I'm just used to it! I tend to have to drive all over for work.
  • TuroiTuroi Missouri :(Member Posts: 341 ✭✭✭✭ - Eminent
    Yeah, meant between cities. I live in Hawaii now (Oahu), so the difference is very noticeable distance wise.

  • MorroMorro Member Posts: 93 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Oh, yeah, I can imagine. I hear all the time how everything in Hawaii is in walking distance. Never having been very far from Texas, I really have nothing to compare it to, though.
  • EllodinEllodin HawaiiMember, Seafaring Liason Posts: 951 @@ - Legendary Achaean
    not everything in hawaii is walking distance, it takes me like 20-30 fricken minutes to walk to the beach sheesh!

    ok but really i swear it's not.  and i'll be back in texas in the spring...probably.

    Vlarto is flying over from the UK for a week and a half, in November (8-17, I think).  Most of that time, we'll be in Austin, catching shows, hitting bars, playing disc golf, hiking the green belt, etc.  We're down for some company if anyone wants to join us, or we can try to plan an organized meet.  Also, we'll be hitting the renfest outside of Houston the first weekend he'll be here, if anybody would like to join us.  Yes, we will be dressing up (barbarian weekend, hell yeah) and we will be drinking.

    @Peak best bet is near Waco then...

    Worst part of Texas is the size. In the time it takes to get to Corpus, I can be in Colorado enjoying cooler weather.
  • MorroMorro Member Posts: 93 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    I've been wanting to go to Renfest for years. May actually make it this time around.

    I have almost gone like 15 times, still never been. College Station, by the way.

    If I go, I'm more than likely going to dress up, but I'll probably autoforge the whole time I'm there.

  • MorroMorro Member Posts: 93 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Hm. Can you drink and autoforge at the same time?
  • ZahanZahan ValhallaMember Posts: 203 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    That big blacksmith out by Houston is usually there with a massive display of badassery... we might have to help Peak pick his jaw up.

    I must find out. 
    It looks like the best theme weekend (IMO) is the Barbarian Invasion on November 10 & 11
  • PeakPeak Member Posts: 838 @ - Epic Achaean
    Our nerdiest opportunity for a meet-up is ren-fest. Who's down for November 10/11th? Dress up, you know you want to.

    All Achaeans welcome.
  • ZahanZahan ValhallaMember Posts: 203 ✭✭✭ - Distinguished
    Vlarto and I are planning on being there all that weekend.  We will be in barbarian garb.

    The nerdiness is very tempting, and I'm sure I could pull some strings at work to get that weekend off. My only worry is my car suddenly breaking down on the way there or something.

    Just so everyone knows I will be dead on my feet after a nice long flight from the motherland so do not expect much in the way of talking or awakeness. Also if anyone mocks my accent I may well cry, and that would make you feel bad, yeah.
    Finally if I can make it from the Britain then people in Texas can make it as well, travel is no excuse!

    Oddly enough, something just came up.. I might be in England on this date.

    If you get bored and decide you want to drive out anyway, we'll be there.  The amount of fun we'll be having is probably illegal somewhere.

    Edit:  The plan currently is to drive out to Plantersville on Friday to set up camp, then we'll be out there the entire weekend.  For anyone who is thinking about joining us, shoot me a message with your # or ask for mine.
