Maybe I should require a photo ID to accompany each order.

I'm registering under the name "Spy, A."


Right, and your second account will be Stormtrooper, B. And your third will be Ewok, C.

Studies show* that threads with puppies are superior to non-puppy threads. I'm just trying to help using science.

*the studies may have been funded by the pro-puppy lobby.

An hour and a half until I'm supposed to update the front page of this thread with presale info.

I think that's enough time for a bubble bath - right? Should I take a book? Will someone wake me up if I fall asleep?

Yep - as far as I know USPS is the only source (fee is $4.75 / MO). I could check with my bank(s) too.

7 spots left -> 13 of us signed up already.  That was fast.

If your reply email didn't have who to make the cheque out to, please let me know and I'll email again. I missed that trivial bit of info on my template.

Americans - I can cash cheques on most US banks here, but if you aren't using paper anymore, an international money order is fine. If neither of these are amenable, gimme a shout and I will work to accommodate you.

I trust we won't be the only ladies (we have pbkmaine already), so not the ladies lounge.

Pet's corner? Dog ville?  We are bringing pet pics, right?  I can bring some chiengora for spinning, too.  Keeps with the theme.

We are two former teachers who accumulated a bunch of real estate, retired at 29, and now travel the world full time with a kid.
If you want to know more about me, or how we did that, or see lots of pictures, this Business Insider profile tells our story pretty well.

I tried to book late so I wouldn't scare people away.

So we have local and not so local, singles and families - how many kids?  What will the kids do while the adults are having adult discussions about money and stuff?  Does the camp have supervised activities they can do?  We want them to have fun too.

I'm a social butterfly introvert.  Snoring?  My Ex said I snored but that was because I kept telling him he snored, which he did, deviated septums do that.  You will have to tell me the bad news if he was correct.
