Actually, if we were in Northern- NC, I think that might not be a horrible idea...it's further from VA from me, but closer than MO and probably doable. It's a long way from Denver, but I think it's closer than VA from CO?

The Canadians would be SOL though

Maybe we could add NC to the poll and see which one gets the majority?

Remember, Denver has BSL.

Love you Zoomer, but I wouldn't knowingly put any money -- or my presence -- into an economy that supports BSL.

I'm not likely to make it that far unless I win a lottery or some publisher signs me to an awesome contract, but it is something to be considered.

Now, move it to an area OUTSIDE the BSL jurisdiction and maybe run some newspaper articles, alert some media, and it could do some good

Denver is still the most reasonable one for me to be able to get to, but since my family is moving from CA to Northern VA next July, I've been talking to Josh about us trying to get out that way in like August or September of 2011

Well now that the powers that be have done that, we need to take one vote away from "other" and add one to North Carolina.

For the love of DOG, people. Denver County is a tiny sliver of Colorado. Look at the map. Find Denver county. Then tell me that we can't possibly avoid being there or going there at all. It's a stupid reason to knock CO off the map. BSL is in one teeny tiny area. There's quite a bit of state left for us - and plenty of places to go and things to do there. If you don't want to go to CO, don't vote for it, but don't let it be because you think BSL is all over the state when it actually isn't.

That said - I need more input from everyone considering going.

Do you want to camp? Stay in a hotel? Stay with chazzers? Flexible on all of the above? What is your price range for a hotel per night, and how long would you stay? Zoom and I figured 4 days - Thursday-Sun, with the main events being on the weekend so everyone who can't take off work can come.

Ideas we have so far:

- doggie happy hour (LOVELOVELOVE this idea, Cali)
- on-leash hike (we could do Skyline for this if everyone grabs some dramamine for the dogs - it's a fun drive and plenty of places to hike)
- off-leash hike
- dog park time (already have one in mind)
- doggie cruise?
- BBQ or catered get together somewhere, possibly outdoors
- ???

Hmm I'll go Flexible on lodgind but if we were to do hotel I'd prefer less than $150 a night since I'm already spending a ton my my wedding that summer. I'd probably stay the whole thing but I'm not sure what exactly my summer work is going to look like.

Events... Yes to all but the off leash hike at least for Izzy. She has not yet proven herself reliable in forested areas off leash. Although she will follow other dogs around, I don't want to chance it. Then again, I could always go without her or with her on a leash anyways.

How would the cruise work though, I haven't heard of a dog cruise before and I'm not sure how well some dogs would do on a huge ship, I know mine is likely to be freaked out.

lol, it's not a huge ship, it's a dinky little boat. It's just an hour long trip around the Potomac river. I have pictures from when I did it with Lucy last year.

The boat:




The seating area upstairs:


I'm not trying to make this a VA meet up--if everyone chooses to go to NC or Kansas or Denver or wherever that's cool--but I just think it's helpful to come up with ideas of what we could do in each location.
