travelbuff, I seem to have misplaced your email address from our last GTG. Do you still have mine?

Before the GTG If anyone wants some exercise join me for summer streets and Central Park, let's meet at the clock in Grand Central at 9:45. We will walk south just far enough to enter the road that goes around GC that is always off limits to pedestrians. We'll walk Park to 60th then head over to Central Park. I promise a nice off road route including some of the Ramble and we'll leave the Park on the West Side near the restaurant.

Note: this is a good fun 3 mile walk. More info here:

I'll start a separate thread closer to the time unless someone else does it first. This GTG thread is way too long for me.

I'm bringing a plus one. A former co-worker (and travel planner extraordinaire) will be joining me.

Hello,

I usually roam in the Europe board and just became aware of this GTG. I live in NJ, so I'll try to attend. Is there still space? Do I need to RSVP to somebody, or is this the place to do so?

travelbuff has not posted anywhere on the boards in the last 3 wks. This is not looking good, something must be up.

I have emailed travelbuff but haven't gotten a reply; our last communication was a little over a week ago. I know she'd been very busy with work, but I'm starting to get a little concerned - I hope everything's okay! I'll email Amy_D and figure out a way to pick up the slack.

Is it too late to add my name to the GTG? I would love to attend and meet some fellow FODORITES.

Just got a reply from travelbuff: she's been super busy but otherwise all is good and on track.

cruiseluv and tdk320n - I'm sure it wouldn't be a problem to add you to the GTG. Of course, I'll leave the definitive response to travelbuff, since she's the one who made the restaurant reservation.

I AM SO SORRY FOR NOT BEING ON THE BOARD RECENTLY BUT I HAVE BEEN MORE THAN SWAMPED WITH WORK.

SO HERE IS THE LATEST FOR SATURDAY. I UPPED THE RESERVATION TO 35 SO WE SHOULD BE ABLE TO ACCOMODATE EVERYONE AND I WILL POST THE ATTENDEES TONIGHT SO CHECK TOMORROW.

NY1, ......INTERESTING........I JUST GOT OFF THE PHONE WITH NY1 (OUR LOCAL CABLE STATION) AND THEY ARE GOING TO SEND A CREW TO TALK WITH ALL OF YOU LOVELY PEOPLE ABOUT TRAVELING. I TOLD THE DESK MANAGER, THERE ISN'T A BETTER GROUP OF PEOPLE WHO KNOW EVERYTHING THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT TRAVEL.....THEN ALL OF YOU.....AND I MEAN WORLDWIDE TRAVEL.......SO NY1 WANTS TO COME AND DO THE STORY, AND IT SURE DOESN'T HURT THAT THE FOOD IS SO GREAT AT BELLA LUNA AS WELL.

SO WE'RE A ......GO.....FOR SATURDAY, AND I WILL BE THERE BY NOON TO DO A BIT OF A SET UP SO ANYONE INTERESTED CAN COME BY EARLY OR JUST SHOW UP AT AROUND 1PM.

I DON'T KNOW WHAT TIME NY1 WILL BE THERE, BUT SHOULD KNOW ON FRIDAY AFTERNOON SO WILL POST WHEN I KNOW.

ANYOTHER QUESTIONS........I WILL CHECK BACK TONIGHT.

SEE YOU ALL ON SATURDAY,,,,,AND BRING YOUR APPITITES......OH AND SOME TRAVEL PICTURES WOULD BE FUN TOO.........

I guess I haven't posted on this thread but I'm coming on Saturday. I've been in touch with Bob, didn't even know there was a thread on the US board! See you Saturday.

laurieco, I believe you posted on the thread I created on the Asia board - or at least I knew you were coming from way back! (Waaay back when, we had a discussion that Mr. laurieco wasn't going to make it...)

Thirty-five people for our NYC GTG. This is shaping up to be quite the shindig!
