Hey; well this is the place for introductions so I am going to do that. My name is Katey and I am a 24/f from Detroit, MI area. I am going backpacking for the first time on May 17th. I am doing a big counterclockwise trip. London, Paris, Berlin, Amsterdam, Brugges, Brussels. I am so excited!!! If anyone will be anywhere I'll be between the 17th and May 31st, lemme know it will be cool to meet! Also, if any of you have any suggestions or ideas for me; please share the wealth. Thanks!

Welcome Kate!

You want to go out for Buddy's Pizza with Sijuki and I when I fly up to Detroit for a day? Haven't picked a date, yet, but sometime later this Spring (after you're back from Europe) or summer. Maybe on the Running of the Bulls day, if we can find anyplace that might show it on TV...

Yeah, I do keep promising to come up for Buddys...

Okay, let's check the calender. It would have to be a Friday or Saturday...which is better for you?

This weekend (30/1st): No can do -- moving into my house.
Next weekend (7/8): Philly meet up -- I'll see you there.
May 14-15: Plans, can't make it.
May 21-22: available
May 28-29: available
June 4-5: available
June 11-12: friend's wedding (almost typed "weeding"!)
June 18-19: available
June 25-26: plans, can't make it

-- There, how's that for a start? Rob, you and Katetacular check it out, and if there's a date that looks better, lets plan it!

Just call me the TPunk Meet Up Guy, the male counterpart to Tecia, the TPunk Meet Up Gal...(she's so cute!)...

Yeah Mike, quit hitting on tecia....

well the 21/22 looks good so far.

Can't make it on the 29th that is my 5th annual memorial day BBQ. A day of food, drinking, and stuff. Which I s'pose anyone is invited to also.

Once june hits I can't say for now what the schedule will look like
