2010 meet up location poll (preliminary!)

Let's talk about it! Europe sounds amazing, but I don't know how feasible that is, for us.

I like the idea of Chicago, Portland, NYC, or maybe Austin. I'm pretty open at this juncture.

eta: I can't decide b/w Portland and Chicago! I voted for Portland..I want to know who else did!

Asheville people, which airport do you usually use?  There must be a major one that's still close?  If it's not too far then maybe people could pick people up, or take the bus.

i think Raleigh is the closest major one.

Charlotte and Greenville/Spartanburg are closer than Raleigh...L2A would know better though.

yes, Greenville is very close-like one hour or so away. Allegient air is the discount airline. There is an Asheville airport but its pretty expensive (but not always!). Charlotte is about 1:45 away....and you can get some good deals. I hear Air Tran is flying into AV now.

Just A quick question: Why not Kansas? its like in the middle of everything... (no I don`t live in Kansas, just wondering)

I think we want to pick a very veggie friendly area that is convenient too

Yes yes!!  And fun, with good airports to fly into and adequate lodging/eating facilities! :-)  When do you all think we'll decide where the 2010 meet-up will be??

Well what kind of meeting place were you looking for? A vegan restaurant, park or what?

jmr, in short all of the above.... This year's was in San Francisco, and was a 3 day event, involving socializing, sightseeing and, of course, vegan eats and treats.

Seconded!  I want it to be someplace ammmazzing that I haven't been to yet.  DH is already down with me; A) leaving him at home for the weekend (he's not veg) and B) spending the money to go and have a GREAT time.

I love the idea of Asheville! I have been there personally and was pleasantly surprised by the kindness of the people as well as the variable veg friendly options. The city was progressive with a mix of eclectic shops and thriving thriving music/ activist scenes. One of my favorite places to visit in Asheville would have to be Rosetta`s Kitchen they have an amazing selection of vegan options and even more amazing food. I found a website on the Asheville vegan population that may be able to provide more info : www.ashevilleveg.com.

PS: I read something about the town having a free people's market every Sunday. Perhaps, if the meet-up is held there attendees could bring zines/art/ crafts to sell at the market to help defer some of the traveling costs. I just love the thought of a massive vegtastic extravaganza!  8)

I chose Portland! I'm a college student in Walla Walla, Washington, and Portland's really the only place I could make it to (I could probably swing Seattle, but it's way behind in the votes!). Portland is such a great place to have something like that, the culture is perfect for it. Hope I can be there!

I voted for NYC, because it's close (three hours). But I can swing Ashville. If I ever get to fly west, though, I am not coming back here!!!

I voted Vancouver because that's close to home and I'm broke, but I just remembered Ursula Vernon lives near Raleigh, and I would totally be down with meeting her, so I have no problem with Asheville.
