Hi Prospector, you might have already addressed this, but I couldn't find it and this thread is yuge. Do we need to bring bedding/sleeping bags, or is everything provided?

You will need to bring the same basics as you would pack for your kid going to summer camp - bedding will be required. A packing list will be made available shortly.

Toilet paper will be supplied. I don't know if its Charmin' Ultra Soft 3-ply.

Closer to the time, we could talk about whether some of the folks from close by (i.e. commuting by car) could bring some extra bedding along, so that those commuting by far (i.e. coming by plane, and hoping to just use a carry-on) don't have to bring theirs. 

You're on your own for the fancy-schmancy toilet paper though!

Great suggestion - I have a feeling pillows and sleeping bags are going to be HOT commodities!

Yup ... we got you covered, travellers! 

Get it?  Covered?  By the blankets and sleeping bags? 

I'm bad at this, aren't I?

No, not bad, I didn't give a sheet. Ali was worried about the bedding, I thought the pun was a good way to comforter.

Does this all count as pillow talk?

Dang.  I'd try to figure out how to use comforter in the first place, but couldn't make it work.  I didn't have an "her" ('ter) to refer to. 

Well played. 

I will give you a few tick marks on the scoreboard - or should that be notches on the bedpost?

Five, now.

I probably won't be able to sleep tonight, thinking of them, it'll just bed bug me too much.

I'm looking at my spreadsheet, and right now it appears that I have received full payment from about 11 folks (thanks for the quick payment!!) Elaine has a bunch more that will come to me soon.

Deposits aplenty are received, in transit, or with Elaine. Thanks again!

There are still about 15 bunks available. That could go up to 20 if I release the spots I'm holding for my boys (so far the only kids apart from ARS's daughter) and count in the 2 open slots for a speaker and a morning exercise leader.

What I am saying is... if you are on the fence, about coming, there is a little time to decide. Our intent is to release any remaining spots to MMM's blog and twitter followers in early spring. Based on past experience, that release will fill quickly. Right now the timeline for when we do that is pretty up in the air - I will probably make an announcement a week before to give stragglers a chance to lock into spots before we do it.

I think you need to update the first item in this thread. It still says:

Quote
Rules:

    Each email addressis limited to 4 spots. No Rebs, you may not buy up the place and scalp tickets afterwards. I know it would help your retirement plans.
    The presale is only to hold a ticket for you. The presale price of $50 CAD  will be applied toward your full ticket price, which will be announced soon.
    A full of sale of remaining spots will follow Ė likely in the spring sometime. If you miss out on this sale, donít despair, another 30 spots will be coming.
    This presale will end when 20 bunks have been reserved or on December 1st, whichever comes first.

And I'm sure the bulk of this is not correct.

... which reminds me that I've been meaning to suggest you might want to change your signature line to say "tickets available now" or something like that.  If you want.  Up to you.

Hey prospector: Your buttons are on sale at Amazon!

https://www.amazon.ca/gp/product/B001685KSM/ref=pe_2331390_227474520_em_1p_0_ti

Thanks Ben - the heads up is appreciated, but I'm thinking the bigger size might be better. I shall cast about searching.

I'm just back from Barnhouse - which is finally showing good progress. A nice little bonus when I was there - Mustache mail!!! Thanks to the forumite from the GOA (Greater Ottawa Area) who mailed in their cheque.
