Okay, to the best of my ability, I'm counting 10 people now. PM me if you don't know where/how to get here.

@Eureka - You just might be right. It used to be set to 5, but the software has changed so I don't know where/how to (re)set it again. I apologize for the inconvenience.

Hi Everyone, does anyone have an extra floor to sleep on Friday night and/or Saturday night? I'm useful and willing to cook, clean, and provide other forms of labor.

My original plan has fallen through because my cousin has to fly somewhere for work(lol) last minute. I've reached out to some others I know and will update this post if something changes.

Thanks! :)

@MCS you can crash at my place downtown on Saturday. DW will be out of town and feels weird about me inviting a stranger over, so no need to cook or clean just don't murder me :)

I will do no murdering. I spoke with Jacob too, and he has available floor space. I'll send you my cell phone and other identifying information if that would make you more comfortable. See pm.

This country can't give me a goddamn break :D
Long story, but there is no way I'll make it in time to the meeting. I sincerely hope you guys have an informative, inspiring and culinary exciting meet-up!

Perhaps I get the chance to meet some of you in the future - and if someone visits Cincinnati till December, hit me up!

Thanks for holding the meetup today, Jacob! I had a great time and made it home safe (through 5 torrential downpours!)

I didn't see any ERE'ers taking pictures, but there was a woman from a Danish TV show filming a lot of the action. Hopefully Jacob tells us when that comes out. Then you can see great footage of Jacob answering questions while I shovel his wife's homemade sourdough bread into my mouth in the background.

It was good to see everyone! Long time no posting, but good to catch up as well. Hopefully I won't be a stranger this coming year.

This was one of the biggest meetups yet---if not the biggest ever. I'm sorry that the book/stuff giveaway/exchanges got lost in the chaos (it was sitting under the food/behind the seats) but I hope everybody enjoyed themselves regardless.

It was cool to finally put a face on some of the forum names some of whom I've known for a long time. My personal facebook rule is that I usually only friend people I've met (so as not to end up with 1000 friends I don't know who are), but if you were at the meetup, feel free to hit me up on my rarely updated and barely relevant facebook account.

PS: Someone forgot a bag. PM me a description of the bag and your address and I'll mail it.

I forget some usernames, but CS, Jacob, Seabourne and Smashter I can put faces to.

It was great to meet everyone and hear all the stories. Whoever brought the raspberry cake thing, thank you. I ate that for the rest of the evening. Let me know if anyone stops in Madison. Save on, people!
