    B'ham is pretty much halfway.

    cool

    Ok, Bellingham sounds good to me. I just checked out msn maps n directions & it's only 2hrs drive.

    I'll keep you updated & speak to the man.

    In terms of dates, the only one that would suit everyone would be the 18th of may..

    It's possible..

    Yes, I was in the Arctic,.. Iqualuit, Nunavut. Huskies ..and town in Jan. at around 11:30 am, land of the midnight sun. Not quite Calgary (or was it Edmonton), that you're from?

    There are cheaper places to stay in Bellingham, cheaper than the Chrysalis. (but the decent ones are close enough in price to the smallest Chrysalis rooms to almost make it worth the switch) There is also camping at Larrabee State Park, which is bike riding distance from the Chrysalis (much of it along the Interurban bike trail). May wouldn't be bad for camping, and Larrabee is gorgeous.

    Edit: Poopy! Just called the Chrysalis, they don't have "normal" rooms open that weekend due to hosting a large corporate group. All they have left are the suites (very nice) for $299 and up a night. I stayed in one of those, they really are very nice and could potentially hold 2 couples or 3 singles (a fold out couch and a fold out window seat in the bedroom). They have a jacuzzi tub in a bay window overlooking the water. Separate "living" room and bed room and bath room. Gas fireplace.

    Anyway, what a bummer. The little rooms are sweet. Would have been perfect. There are other hotels in town, but none as nice as Chrysalis or as perfectly located on the bike path.

    Oh, and Monday the 19th is Victoria Day.

    hmm

    Ah, it's the Victoria day long weekend..KG? T?

    Hey Salsa, can you throw a sickie on the 20th..

    Who'd be up to having a TE funky meet in Bellingham? Is it easier than Seattle?

    I believe my aunt n uncle who are near seattle won't be home for us to see them so bellingham might just work.

    Bellingham would certainly be easier for me. IT's a nice little town too!
