Is this actually going on? We've got three yes' and a maybe (but probably no.)

It's okay if this doesn't happen this weekend. Tattooed, if you want to meet up locally this weekend if the swap doesn't happen I think that could happen.

I should also add microworm culture, vinegar eel culture, and RCS to my available for trade list.

LoL I guess not... I mean, 0live if you wanna drive all the way out here to trade with me and check out Yoyo's shop I'd be all for it. I know it's a long way and I don't have plants you're looking for, so I imagine you wouldn't, but I would gladly trade any of mine for any of yours...

How about some suggestions as to when a second attempt should be? Like I said earlier, meeting up at the next PVAS meet seems like a plan to me, but I understand you will be going to auction the weekend after 0live, I just hoped there would be more interest with all the locals :-/

I would also be up for meeting later in the day if both of you wanted to come... Yoyo's shop closes at 7:00 so there should be plenty of time.

Haha.

I might be tempted to head up to something closer.. Uncle Ned's maybe.. It is Tax Free Weekend after all..


I just don't think I'm likely to make the drive if it's a 1:1 gathering.. If there was a group. I'd be there. No doubt.

I am from Western MA, but will be in Nantucket next week and could bring you some plants! That would be pretty fun. We arrive the 17th.

Also, if this does happen Sunday I could probably make it. I have a pretty good stock of stuff.

I live in Downtown Northampton. Does Yoyo know we're meeting in her shop? I am not sure she'd be too happy about it since she sells plants and we're there to trade them!

It wouldn't actually be in her shop but the parking lot across from her. But I was just in her shop Tuesday and told her about this meet, she seemed happy to have the prospective business lol.

As far as if this is happening, I will be there either way...

Where is Uncle Ned's?

I'd also be up for meeting on the 25th as well, maybe a later time so tattooedfool83 could come.

And if we wanna meet later this Sunday it looks like we could still have four people...

Clown loaches, yoyo loach, giant danios, a mix of Cory's, an upside down catfish, rummy nose tetra and neon tetras. There is ottos and plecos as well. Few other fish but those are my daughters. I have the typical run of the mill fish store bought fish. Partly why I wanna trade them out and restart
