Toronto GTG , 2008 !!!
HI everyone. It's so difficult to arrange a date that is good for everyone... so I'm throwing this out really early.

Any Fodorites out there that might be planning a trip to Toronto this year and would like to meet a fun loving group?

goddesstogo Jan 28th, 2008 12:34 PM

Hi kodi,
I'd love to come this time! Except for the last week of April (which includes the first few days of May), I'll be around.

I'm generally good for any night except Mondays and Wednesdays, and even those might work for me, depending on when we do it.

Can I suggest that you put this on the lounge as well?

Ohboy ohboy ohboy! A Toronto GTG!

moolyn Jan 28th, 2008 01:48 PM

kodi, I've been thinking the same thing, that we should set a date way ahead so people can plan their travels. I'd be happy to work with you on this again.

Toedtoes Canada trip this year is to Nova Scotia, unfortunately for us.

kodi Jan 28th, 2008 01:58 PM

Goddess, yes, I'll put it on the lounge too. Good idea.

Thanks, Moolyn... hopefully by planning ahead, we'll be able to get a date good for everyone.

Add me.

A) Kodi: I am SOOOO up for a TO GTG!If I can be of any help, count me in!
B) Moolyn: I have not had the opportunity to meet Toedtoes, but Nova Scotia is my second home and I would LOVE to assist this enthusiastic traveler in any way that I can...please feel free to pass along my real email to her if you wish (I am Lee from the Church Street GTG)

kodi Jan 28th, 2008 05:28 PM

Thanks for signing in, ladies!

BTW, I'll be away in April and also in Sept. I think the last 2 weeks in Sept, but I have to double check with Toedtoes . I have to make sure she's home from Nova Scotia , so I can see her when I get to California.

kodi, thanks for opening the door to ideas for a GTG. I'll do my best to participate. I am away from March 6 - 21 with my school group travelling in France and Spain, but have flexibility after that.

sounds like fun...I might head to Toronto for it if I'm in town and it's on a weekend.

Hi there Kodi, I decided to come to the Canada Board. I so wish I could join in with the Toronto GTG but you know I am so looking forward to seeing you here in September! I am counting the days..well months actually.

kodi Jan 29th, 2008 04:31 AM

Love, I'll make you a deal! I'll see you in California in Sept, and then you can come to the 2009 Toronto GTG!!!

Moolyn has already emailed me about this thread, so I am now following up.

I live in Ottawa so it is not entirely certain I CAN make it. Anyway, as a newbie I would expect to fit in with the plans of the organizers and the core participants.

So don't bother unduly about what does or doesn't suit me....

The dates I CANNOT come are March and (probably) mid-September to mid-October.

Hi, Kodi! Great idea! I will be away the last week of Feb & most of March.
Looking forward to a To GTG! ;)

toedtoes Jan 29th, 2008 10:00 AM

I wanna come!!!! I wanna! I wanna! I wanna!

Tedgale - if you can make it, do go. This is a great bunch of people - not one axe murderer in the bunch! Well, except for.... :-d

I'm already missing Ontario. I HAVE to do Nova Scotia this year - it's a family heritage thing - but I so want to come back home. I need to go back to Niagara Falls, and I need to go to the CN Tower and stand on the glass floor again (maybe this time I'll actually look down). I need to go to Manitoulin Island. I need to go back to Ottawa and Peterborough and Port Pery and Perth (what's up with the p?). I need to eat at a chip wagon and eat a Harvey's veggie burger. I need to snack on ketchup chips (yep, I'm hooked). I need to hop the TTC downtown. I need to sit on the edge of a lake and commune with nature. I need to gaze into the flowing current at Niagara Falls. I need to do it all now!

SallyCanuck Jan 29th, 2008 11:01 AM

Gasp! You don't have ketchup chips!

toedtoes Jan 29th, 2008 11:08 AM

I know Sally - it's a sad state of world events that we don't have ketchup chips. I need to do a search and see if I can order them online. I brought home a big bag, but I've gone through them already.

SallyCanuck Jan 29th, 2008 11:41 AM

And no salt 'n vinegar, I believe. oh dear oh dear

I can send you a care package.

goddesstogo Jan 29th, 2008 11:51 AM

I don't think they have all dressed either. Poor sods.

toedtoes Jan 29th, 2008 12:15 PM

We do have salt & vinegar, but not all dressed up.

I looked into ordering ketchup chips online, but the shipping costs more than the chips (and the chips weren't cheap).

Perhaps we can work out a trade - I'll send something we have that you don't and you send me ketchup chips... surely there's SOMETHING you want that you can't get...

goddesstogo Jan 29th, 2008 12:17 PM

sunshine? warm weather? seashore?

I'll deliver the damn chips myself! :-D
