    Don't it just figure. All of my friends who would be adventurous enough to come are out of town or have work. :P

    Quick folks, help me find a way to help justify the gas! Though the fact that Warren is coming all the way up from LA makes me feel like I should shrug off the drive like it's nothin'. lol

    Ooh, good meeting today at California Carnivores! Fernando Rivialda, Barry Rice, Judith Finn, and Peter D'Amato among others all in the house! Not to mention many forumers including FlyTrapLady, Not a Number, Emesis, and more! I went home with lots of plants from the raffle and auction. Plus an item or two from Peter's place! It was good CP fun all around!

    Yeah, I just got back about an hour ago.

    Man was that fun. I got to meet Peter D'Amato, Barry Rice, Capslock, BigBella, FlyTrapLady5, Ron West (Seattle area CP nursery owner), David Conner and a bunch of others in person. Too much food (potluck lunch)!

    I won a plant in the raffle and picked up a couple from Peter. I may have won more but wasn't present for the full drawing as I got sidetracked in the parking lot talking with others about Ron's SmartCar.

    After the meeting Lois (Flytraplady5) invited me on a personal tour of her Racoon Ridge Nursery. Very impressive. I envy all of you who won her items in the auction. Too bad I filled up the memory card on the borrowed camera before I left meeting.

    All in all not a bad day - worth the 12 or so hours driving.

    Do you guys have any pics you can post? I've always wondered what these organized meetings look like, and I'd also like to see Peter's place.
    Thanks

    Has anyone really been far even as decided to use even go want to do look more like?

    I just uploaded the pictures I took (unedited for now):

    A few shots:

    Peter D'Amato


    Barry Rice


    Geoff Wong (the fellow in the foreground with back to camera is Ron West):


    Sorry, that's all the shots I have. I didn't want to delete my sister's stuff of the card and I didn't have time to back her stuff up.

    You can see shots of other BACPS meetings on their website:
