Be it in the UK or US or wherever?

 

Another forum of which I've been a member of since '04 has been holding annual 'Meets' at various locations throughout the UK for the past few years, and I decided to go to my first this past summer.

 

Wasn't too bad. Pretty much everyone was exactly how you'd think they'd be after years of conversing with them online. Then again most people aren't as shy to post their mug on that forum as they are on this one, so we all pretty much new what we looked like. We all just booked a hotel for the night, had a dinner, then went out for the night.

 

So has this place held something similar?

Have you been to one yourself?

Would you go to one?

To my knowledge, there hasn't been one. But then again, anything could've happened before I joined up.

 

If there were one, I'd probably go if I had the money, time, and if it was closeby.

Pretty damn sure GTA has annual meet-ups which you can sign up for.

 

Never done it myself but read a few topics about it.

I believe there has been group meetup's here on GTAF. I can't remember by who or where, but I've seen pictures before.

There's a picture of a meet-up in the member photos topic, I think it was posted by Trip, but I can't find it. It wasn't an official one (there were like four or five people there), but a few forum members have met up recently.

 

I don't think I'd want to go if there was one. :blush:

Everyone come to my house.

 

Just avoid the Kangaroo sh*t and empty Fosters cans around the place.

Yeah. But it's mostly between the OGA members. There was a meetup between papanesta and a few others in London. It was posted somewhere (Might have been in the old GTAF Weekly)

Yup.  There have been a few here and there.  Most happen in the UK area since it is easier to get around and all.

 

Here is Lurch's sig taken in my back yard.

Just so you know, I know who is who in that picture as well. But like trip, I won't say, but one of them can't come back here anymore....

 

But yeah, there have been meet ups in the past. Mostly with the British/European OGA members.

The dude on the far right went too far, but he is still dearly missed.

 

Anywho off to the meet-up at SonOfLiberty's house.

On one hand I wish there would be one, like in Colorado for a weekend we could all ski or just up to the mountains to hang out.
But on the other hand I don't know if I feel accepted enough on the forums it is nothing anyone did it's just I have trouble making my self be apart of a community be it an online forum or a group of friends if I knew for sure I would be welcomed I would totally go to a meet -up of the GTAF

Well  I plan to never sign up for two reasons.

 

1. I'm to young so it would be awkward

 

2. I have no methods of transportation other than my bike

Pretty sure Lurch is the Frankenstein's Monster doppelgänger.

I still think that MURDOC looks like a pirate.

EDIT: Yeah I'm definitely right for once.

I can totally imagine that acceptance would be a key factor. Don't want some guy who joined ten minutes ago coming to an exclusive hangout.

 

I'd guess that there'd be some kind of invitation list sent out to all those eligible to go, or something along those lines.

hmm....I should pop in here a bit more.


The Pittsburgh/Philly meet was thrown together rather quickly, honestly. Money and time were a huge factor because we are generally broke dudes. It was fun though.

Scott flew in from Canada and Lurch bussed his ass up from Knoxville. We spent July 4th hang in out at my place and took off to Philly to meet Trip and Murdoc in their home town.

Charlie caught a bus home from Philly, Scott and I took my car back to Western PA, and he flew out of Pittsburgh airport.

It was a fun weekend of booze, guns, drugs, sex, and rock & roll.




Fun fact. As soon as Icarus/Scott got I'm my car, I handed him my pistol and said, "Welcome to America."

Everyone come to my house.

 

Just avoid the Kangaroo sh*t and empty Fosters cans around the place.

 

Fosters?

 

In the famous words of Predator's Poncho - "Get that stinking sh*t out of my face"

 

I'll bring the Guiness and STI tests though.

Nah I don't really drink that sh*t. I was only playing on the stereotype made famous by Mick Dundee.
