|Calgary I could probably do, especially if I can plan that far in advance.

If enough other people were going, and I had advance notice, I think I
could make it.

Another thing I'd been thinking of was trying to do a North America get
together when Howl's comes out (or is available at least subbed) over
here.  We had that snazzy map that everyone helped update, and we're of
course scattered all over the map.  If I were a mathemetician I could do
a weighted average but eyeballing it I'd guess Minnesota or so would be
minimum total path length for the collective North Americans, if we were
all to get together.  :)

I get all my ideas in Switzerland near the Forka Pass. There is
a little town called Gletch, and two thousand feet up above
Gletch there is a smaller hamlet called Uber Gletch. I go there
on the fourth of August every summer to get my cuckoo clock
repaired. While the cuckoo is in the hospital, I wander around
and talk to the people in the streets. They are very strange
people, and I get my ideas from them.  -- Dr. Seuss
