    I had originally planned to see the East Bay Viv, but Dory had other plans. We did stop for lunch in Berkley, where we found a new favorite curry place. Mmmmm!

Also the largest plant sale they have.

    It's too bad the weather was so bad as the Berzerkly botanical gardens is very great place! I too believe the box is new. I have not seen it before. There was also another box by the CP and orchid greenhouse that I had never seen before.

    If you had more time you could have hit up the East bay vivarium! Wife and I stopped by there after the meeting and picked up a new chameleon! They had some great ones I which I could have taken home with me.
    Darn it...next time I'm hanging with You

    It was wonderful meeting you! Your hugs are fantastic, btw!
    Yeah, I hope someday, when I've got my own place and my plants aren't starving for light, I'll be able to bring everyone and have some epic house/garden party over here! Ah...dreams...sometimes they come true
    Awesome!
    All expense paid, I assume? :P
    I really want to go to a BACPS.
    My mom says no, not till I pay for my own ticket... so hopefully 2 more years!

    lets see how the financial situation looks.
    We could get a crew together and take the train... And the nice thing about trains is that we could bring plants back! (I guess you could on a plane or in the car too but somehow a train seems like the most hospitable for plant transit.)

    Expenses were paid, yes
    What I did, was a day trip. I got there, went to the meeting, and went home. Airline tickets were $262- but upwards of 280 would be more likely.
    Keep in mind the cost of food (airport food is EXPENSIVE. $10 for a regular sandwich, $3.00 for a small soda, etc), any plants you see that you want, the cost of driving to the airport (and getting back home), parking there, and tolls on the road.
    Not to mention, if you're already going out there, I highly recommend getting a hotel and staying there for some time. There's alot to see and alot of people to meet- might as well take full advantage of it but if you're crunched for time like me (I have school) there's nothing wrong with a day trip- just make sure you have everything you need in a little bag, and get one of those neck pillows at Wal-Mart first, cause in the airport, they're like, $19. Ridiculous! Haha.

    But it was fun getting to see everyone and I'm over my fear of flying and I just wanna go back for more!

    @Seedjar: they have no problems with plants on the planes...you'll just want to keep them in a protective dome or hold them in your lap

    Yeah, but airlines are getting to be more and more of a pain, and you never know when some ******* is going to decide that the fluid in your pitchers violates the clear bottle and plastic baggies rule. Besides that, carry-on rules, lines... I was thinking more of checked luggage though (what a nightmare.) Trains are air-conditioned, relatively low-turbulence, you can port your own bags if you keep an eye out, and you can take a lot more luggage than you can on a plane.
