Posting a very brief update for those who are thinking of coming still. (Hope the couple of you on here that are still considering decide to come!!!)

August 19 - Arrival at the designated moot house in Columbia, MO! :D The evening will probably be spent sitting around chit-chatting, playing games and what-not.

August 20 - A day to travel out and about in the Columbia, Jefferson City, and/or surrounding area. See the sites, try the local food, etc. If it appears that the weather will not cooperate on the 21st, this day will then be spent desperately trying to come up with a Plan B to view the eclipse.

August 21 "Eclipse Day!" - Breakfast, set up in the yard to view the eclipse, view the eclipse, spend most of the day snacking. Again in the evening we'll probably keep things fairly low-key, as well as starting the process of packing up and cleaning up the house we're staying in.

August 22 - Departure day. :( We'll probably head out and grab breakfast somewhere after the house we stay in is spic and span, and then head our different directions. For those heading to or through Kansas City, I'd love to swing by the Kansas City Public Library for a photo op in front of their awesome book facade.

That's as far as I've gotten with the planning. For those who are coming, if there is a place you would like to visit and/or eat at, please speak up and say so! I don't want to hear any crying about where we eat or what we do if I'm left to plan by myself. ;) ;)) :P (For those who have offered suggestions, thank you! :) )

aileth and The Rose-Tree Dryad, I'm curious if you are leaning one way or another on whether or not you can join us in August?

In case you're interested (or anyone else for that matter), the short itinerary is as follows:

Aug 19, Arrive at the house, hang out, relax, chit-chat
Aug 20, Tour Jacob's Cave in the middle of MO. Later that day, visit the capital and surrounding areas in Jefferson City.
Aug 21, View the eclipse, and record a podcast with Glumpuddle that evening
Aug 22, Head out. For those going through KC, we plan to visit the public library for pictures of their awesome book facade and potentially some other fun thing.

And just as an fyi so people know what's going on, I invited the mods/staff to come to my house afterwards, so some may do that.

I was just going to pm you about this, fantasia! Good timing. ;))

My summer is shaping up to be a really busy one and I may be relocating around August on top of everything else, so it's looking like a no from me. Shame, because it sounds like you guys are going to have a terrific time! Going spelunking is such a brilliant idea with SC coming up... be sure to be on the lookout for some of those chinks and chasms leading into Narnia. ;) Sad to miss out on the fun, but I'm looking forward to hearing all the stories and listening to the podcast! :)

Oh dear! Alack a day! It looks less and less likely for me also. * :(( copiously*

I haven't quite given up hope, for matters can alter radically within a very short time.
*reviews past few months, and nods sagely* Therefore, things could change again and make it possible. I do want to come still; my Mom needs me right now, so unless things work out differently for her, it just won't happen. :(( :((

I don't have to hope you will have a great gathering: I know you will. (My one teensiest consolation: I won't miss meeting Rosie, if she won't be there either. But then there's everyone else :(( )
