    I would love to come just hang out with a bunch of folks without a convention also going on to split my attention, but I've been having a real hard time this last couple years scraping together the PTO to take vacations, instead of blowing it all on sick days. Hoping for a healthier 2020, but we'll see how it actually goes.

    Wait there's a convention at PAX South?

    Wait, forget everything I said about convenience and get 16 people to rent this castle with a small observatory and a private lake in the middle of nowhere: https://www.vrbo.com/346556

    So...what about 16+ folks in an AirBNB in Charleston over Memorial Day weekend?

    https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/7420508?adults=8&check_in=2020-05-21&check_out=2020-05-26&source_impression_id=p3_1580055474_DjzZ/AQ6/aJXCZL8

    I did Thursday to Tuesday May 21 - 26 and it came back as a sub $2,000 stay with 5 bedrooms

    Seems kinda neat

    Always look at number of beds, rather than the number of guests listed

    True, and fair. But there's still 7 beds and at least 2 couches.

    This one also has a bunch of beds/couches

    You know, just wait until a cult gets SWAT called on them, and then swoop in when the facility is freshly emptied out.

    Anyway yeah I figure we should probably gauge interest and then we can figure out which is the easiest between one large Airbnb, multiple places, or hell even a big ass campground or something

    For reference: that house is like a 6 minute walk from the beach, 15 minute uber downtown

    It might be good to start with a doodle poll or similar to get a better idea about dates that would work for the most people, and then do a poll for location. Or vice-versa, but dates seem like more of a sticking point.

    Memorial Day is cool for requiring less vacation time for some, but is also potentially bad for people who are in school or taking classes at all, and anybody who teaches. Maybe check on that vs some dates in June vs some dates in July?

    I was really just looking for something to lift my spirits because this weekend has been a massive come down after how awesome last weekend was and also I am without my antidepressants for over a week and still have to wait till my job sorts out their dumb health insurance shit before I can get back on them.

    So I decided to go searching for AirBNB/VRBOs by the beach and Charleston felt like a closer place. Although I hear Virginia Beach is also a good time?

    Virginia Beach Pros:
    - It looks nice, mostly
    - There's pretty good food
    - I grew up there, know everything nearby, can go visit my family and friends and they won't feel neglected like they do when I go to PAX
    - Top Golf
    - Busch Gardens

    Virginia Beach Cons:
    - Shitty traffic
    - Not, like, a ton of stuff to do
    - Lots of boomers and tough, gung-ho military boys
    - I grew up there, and I moved away for a reason

    I was planning to put a rough survey/poll together for locations/dates, guess I should do that soon!

    I would wager that "what dates can you not do this" is, depending on how many people we get interested, going to be the deciding factor moreso than "when would you like to do this"

    Yeah, so go with a doodle poll or similar that will let people vote for multiple options and have everyone check off every set of dates they can do, not just their favorites, and go with whatever gets the most votes.

    I think what Maddoc meant was to do a poll like that but only check off dates that are hard "No"s, as there are fewer of those than there are acceptable enough weekends

    Both solutions essentially reach the same conclusion

    yeah my plan is to do like a 0-2 system - what's impossible, what's possible, and what's preferred - with a few different options

    anyway i'm eating an entire bag of chips right now but i'll probably put it together later tonight

    So you like, ever learn a new word or a new concept and then you just see it more than you feel like it ever came up before? That’s just my roundabout explanation for this coming up in my twitter feed.

    okay all you butts! i've been dragging my heels but I finally put together a quick survey to get some hard info for Beach PAX. for dates assume it's your preferred location, and vice versa for location. we can work out the details once i've got an idea of how many people are actually able to commit to something. i'm tagging everyone who expressed interest, along with a few people I know probably can't come but want them to come anyway (looking at you in particular @Mysst and @crwth). if i missed anyone or you know someone else who might wanna join, feel free to link em the survey!

    let's go to the beeeaach! https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/XFF336W

    Filled it out, although I'll admit that my schedule is already looking fairly busy and I know other people have been trying to nail me down for other things as well.
