I'm proposing this one out of purely selfish reasons.  I've already decided that I'm going to go to the Aquino Tank Weekend at the Ontario Regiment Museum and I thought I'd see if anybody else is interested in meeting in Toronto.  The tank portion is detailed here, http://www.ontrmuseu...aquino-weekend/ but there are certainly other things to do and see in the area.  The dates work out to something like June 4th-8th in Toronto  

 

Edited to remove the Boston/Collings foundation part.  My new job will likely not allow me to do the extended trip I initially proposed.

Sounds good.

Although — perhaps — smart phones should be barred during meals. :glare:

Toronto? That's in Canada isn't it? What's the chance that you find any military history there for war is the definition of impolite and Canadians are said to be the opposite of impolite. ;)

Ok, enough of that. If that's the I&I I need to make deals, pull strings and cross my fingers.

Well the Americans were uncouth enough to invade Canada in two different wars and once a band of Fenians(?) staged an attack out of the US into Ontario.

Hmm, OK. I'll give you breakfast. But I'll take lunch and supper. ;)

Jami might be coming along, you seriously aren't going to make us talk to each other for two meals out of three? :)

If Jamie comes along, there will be plenty of people willing to talk with (listen to ?) her, if you are at anytime not so inclined. ;)

And there will be others to talk to you directly.

 

But the worst meal for social media I remember was the place where they threw food at you.

In all fairness, maybe it was the 'hurry-up' service that clouds my memory.

 

Nothing wrong with taking a picture or two. And Sunday's mega-icecream — the look on his face — just had to be immortalized.

FYI, Toronto to Boston is an awfully long drive (9 hours or so).

I plan on flying, cheaper and easier than dealing with cross border car rentals is my guess.

That's mostly doable already. 

 

That's my plan.

 

I just remembered someone is getting married and she would prefer it if I'm there too. And no, my attendance is not critical, the woman has a far too good taste and judgement. ;)

I'm thinking that this one is more like two consecutive short I&Is and people can attend either half or both based on preference or schedule.  Depending on my PTO balance I may end up working a few days rather than touring around.

Make sure you go on a day the tank hall is open, Sunday and I found out the hard way that it isn't open every day.
