Prudhoe Bay Planning Thread

We need to pick a date and time between July 17 and July 19 (it'll be at the PBOC unless someone has a better idea).

Ok, I live in Portland but I have to be at work for this meetup (again). I'm bumming about it, but I'm going to make the best of it and hope that just one of the mods will make it.

Anyway, I'll be at the PBOC throughout these dates if any MeFites are up there during this time. If not, well, there'll be a one-person meetup on the Arctic Ocean.

I just want to say I love this. I was the attendee at a meetup-for-one in a remote location, too. Hope another MeFite can make it so you don't have to go through the whole bar tab yourself!

Unfortunately it's a dry location. I might get into the NyQuil, though.

I'm excited - thus far it looks like the farthest north 10th anniversary meetup!

I pulled the trigger on the time and date so it would be concurrent with the Portland bash.

Have a hoot, man. I think I'll be alone, too. Of course, that has never stopped me before.

What's a PBOC? Also, can we somehow patch you in to Portland?

PBOC = Prudhoe Bay Operations Center, which looks like it has an awesome breakfast.

dersins: I guess someone could IM me during the meetup, but I probably wouldn't be giving much back as I'll actually be at work.

not on display: That's a neat blog. That person must be one step ahead of me all the time!

This hasn't been the success I had hoped, but it came off about how I expected it to.

2 months early?

dersins: "2 months early?"

Their calendars go faster up there 'cause they don't have as far to spin around the axis, y'see. Happy Thanksgiving, Nabubrush!

Jessamyn's trying to find someone in Antarctica to become a MeFite (or, already has found someone); you should pop her an email to see if she can spread the word so that MeFi can not only have a 7-continent meetup, but a pole-to-pole one as well!

Yes, well . . . I . . . look! A baby wolf!

I thought for sure that Iceland would have the most northerly meetup but this'll take the cake. By the looks of it nobody's on the ball in Reykjavík.

Can you please not steal the tiny amount of MetaThunder that I have? Thank you.

Don't worry, Prudhoe bay is well north of Iceland.

All that sunlight is going to your head.

Well, and the bugs are driving me crazy!

You think the bugs are driving you mad, I dare you to go out and find a stick. Driftwood doesn't count.
