If there are a few of us attending, it might be another opportunity for more swapping.

I don't suppose anyone coming from parts north would be willing to give me a ride from the Bronx? I could pay in plants and livestock, or just actual boring money.

Ok so I JUST said, oh, I can't go, I work in the Bronx that day, but then I saw the next comment, and I googled the route and it doesn't look terrible. Because if no one else can give you a ride and there ARE going to be some of us going, I'm willing to give a ride if you have toll money. Someone smarter than me talk me into or out of this thing, I'm bad at decisions.

I don't know if I'm smarter than you but I do know that I have toll money and various plants and livestock you're welcome to should you want any.

The invert talk should be interesting and I really want to buy some microcrabs.

I want pygmy cories, but I think they would be lunch in one tank and eat lunch in the other ...

What the heck. Let's go! I do have to warn that if there's an emergency late in the day, that I may have to cancel at the last minute. PM me for details and make sure I have a phone number, I may not have internet access.
