I'm assuming the center point of the distances is the twin cities area?

it's doable for me. if it were something like 12/5 and somewhere suburban stripmallish. it's a downright pain in the butt to park my pick up anywhere in downtown area.

last couple of days have been perfect coffee weather!

This Miniapophile's vote is for a location on S. Lyndale... Or the Black Forest... Or the Halftime Rec on University... The Turf Club's Clown Bar if it's still open...

Cant get down to the cities much and really dont want to, but we're up here in Bemidji. There are some other lurkers from the Crookston, EGF, Grand Forks, and Duluth stalking around here.

Oops , forgot about this thread . :P

I would be down to meet up , but I live downtown Mpls and don't get out of the city too often . That and I work evening/nights. Traveling out to burb-land is a bit problematic.

:lol:

I think in the interest of getting my crap together i'm not gonna make it this month. been crazy with life lately and prep fail slapping me in the face left and right for the last two months. getting better slowly though.

either way if there ends up being a january or February coffee date i'd be interested.

Ok lets try this for setting up a date.

weekday or weekend?
morning, afternoon, or evening?
preferred location?
willing to carpool?
jan or feb?

If everyone interested would answer the above questions, may be we can get something started.

weekday
afternoon or evening (flexible)
within a 2 hour drive
I can drive someone
either month works

thursday through sunday would be fine for me.
afternoon or evening.
southern half of the twin cities would be best due to driving up from Rochester.
depends on location. if someone else from Rochester would want to ride up and split gas in either their car or my truck (warning you now, it'll be $40 total in gas for a round trip from Rochester to most parts of the cities)
February would be best for me.

in fact, if timed correctly and on a friday afternoon, i might be able to make the gathering after landing at MSP from a work trip and just cruise over from long term parking after i dig my truck out.

shooting range time would be nice, but not essential for me. personally after living in AZ (the land where almost everyone has a gun and only some can handle it) i am a bit skiddish of being around new people armed.

personally just a meet up somewhere public for coffee and general prep/guns/zombie related BSing sounds perfect for me.
