Party at Snacky's house - Summer 2018!
« on: October 24, 2017, 12:06:30 PM »
Update re: poll.
We should pick dates so people can plan.
Although we can't predict the weather definitely, Winnipeg is quite consistently hot in July (30C ish). June is usually warm. August is normally warm. September can start to get a bit chilly, possibly rainy. It's hard to know.
In the mid-summer it can be too hot for intense outdoor activities - hours of walking.

Also, Prospector suggested that some people might like to combine their trips - see Winnipeg and then attend the CMC near Brantford. These are about a 20 hour drive from each other. So 2 or 3 days - depending on how much you like driving.

So if there is some chance of you coming, let us know what you prefer. Likely hot, near CMC, or early June/late August when it's likely warm but not crazy hot.

Advertisement for party:
Have you always wanted to party with Snacky, but just didnít know how to find her?

Come to Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada in the summer of 2018 and there is at least a chance she will make herself findable.

Being only a seven-hour drive from the Twin Cities, a two days drive from Toronto or Vancouver, and ONLY 1 hour from North Dakota, Winnipeg is truly a city in the centre of it all.

If youíve never been to the Canadian prairies, this is a must-see adventure for you. Located near the east-west geographical centre of Canada, Winnipeg was built on the convergence of two rivers, making it one of the oldest trading sites in Canada. This is reflected in the numerous historic buildings and the streets named after prostitutes.

If architecture is your thing then youíll find a fascinating mix of old and modern. Winnipeg is a city for all tastes.

The city is known for being friendly, liberal, artsy and culturally diverse. It is very walkable and there are plenty of parks and outdoor people-watching spots.

Winnipeg is also the home of the Royal Canadian Mint (MONEY!) and Canadian Museum for Human Rights (Iím boycotting, but Iíve heard itís cool).

Tours provided by myself will include: a fake hill, mansion lane, creepy cemetery, a huge variety of food options, and more trees than your eyes can handle. Apparently, there is also something at the zoo called a, um, ďPolarbearĒ, if Iím pronouncing that correctly. I prefer the butterflies.

Getting here is easy as there is an international airport conveniently located in the middle of the city (suck-it, Edmonton!). There are also roads going both in AND out of the city (recent upgrade!)

Remember, for the Americans, it will be extra affordable. (Bring an extra suitcase for ketchup chips and chocolate bars.) For the Canadians it will be moderately affordable (suck-it, Vancouver!).

If you are interested but donít have a flexible schedule tell me what dates might work for you. Iíd recommend June, when itís most likely to be warm, but not so hot that outdoor activities become difficult*. Also, kids are still in school so campgrounds and the beach (yes, siree, there is a large beach only an hour away.)

*KMMK cannot and does not make any guarantees in regards to the weather in Winnipeg. Choose clothes at your own risk.

KMMK, your write up made this sound incredibly appealing. Or made me laugh a lot.

I committed minutes earlier to CMC, meaning summer is in-between my international travel and CMC commitments. I will stay tuned in case I win a lottery or inherit and am able to come.

I have a first cousin in Winnipeg who could do slam poetry or a music installation for us

This is very tempting.  I was born in Winnipeg but my family moved to Vancouver when I was two so have no memories.  I've never been back either.  Might just have to do it!!!

+1!  MJ can ALC you into doing the thing, if needed!

Make sure you have both of Prosp's ingredients though... the French Revolution had lots of the latter, not enough of the former. We don't want to see that again.

Also if the childcare thing can be figured out, I'd be happy to help you travel hack your way to make the event itself cheap (possibly free; starting early on this is big).  :)

So if I plan carefully I can eat the finest sushi off a unicorn's butt?

I prefer to pluck it from their horns, but if eating off butts is your wish, who am I to judge?  :)

I was in Winnipeg in '98 for our first anniversary.  I loved it.  Beautiful city.  Stayed in Wolsley (I think - downtownish near one the rivers).  Great food.  And they have done a whole bunch of new projects that would be cool to check out.

Is a dirty mind a requirement to be a mustachian, or just a common attribute?

Banger Rallies are super common in Europe - the idea is that you buy a wreck of a car as cheap as possible, decorate it up, and then drive to some destination. It is not a race, but it is a timed event, so the idea is to reach camp in, say, 20 hours. To the minute.

Often ridiculous rules work to make either the goal time, or the vehicle choice more difficult than expected for instance, car size could be limited to 2250 mm wheelbase and you must transport 2 inflated kiddy pools along with your gear.

Price point on the cars is "Anything cheaper than the lowest airfare from Winnipeg to Toronto on the day you sign up, with a max $500 repair budget" - things like this.

Traditionally these are done as a fundraiser - it would be cool to tag that component on to raise $$$ for the camp we use on the Ontario end and a charity of Snacky's choice on the Winnipeg end.

Plenty of CC points you can straight redeem for cash. It's suboptimal, but you absolutely can buy anything with points that you can charge to your CC.

+2 although depending on when you have it, I may be fully invested in learning to care for a very small human, and not have any bandwidth for travel.

I wouldn't trust the first, but the other two will probably get us there.... Maybe back? We can always do a convoy, and have the kidney foundation on alert for those vehicles that won't make it. (I.E hopefully no more than half)

I'll pick the day soon. See poll.

I don't think we are staying in the Snacky Estate. That is up to Snacky. Perhaps she will run a contest for one chosen person to stay with her - what is the best gift you can think of?

I have friends in the area, so may crash with them. Or an AirBNB. If we have enough people agreed ahead of time we could probably share an AirBNB.

There's also this hostel option: https://www.backpackerswinnipeg.com/
I've walked by it hundreds of times but haven't been inside. It's in a nice area for walking.

I don't think we are staying in the Snacky Estate. That is up to Snacky. Perhaps she will run a contest for one chosen person to stay with her - what is the best gift you can think of?


Gift: Team baby-sittting. Snacky gets to nap FOREVER.

Interested!  When will we know the day? Are we all staying in/on the Snacky Estate?

I'll pick the day soon. See poll.

I have friends in the area, so may crash with them. Or an AirBNB. If we have enough people agreed ahead of time we could probably share an AirBNB.

There's also this hostel option: https://www.backpackerswinnipeg.com/
I've walked by it hundreds of times but haven't been inside. It's in a nice area for walking.
You really really understand us.

Sometime either during, or situated so I can make my visit overlap with the 4th week of July would be best for me.

Oh this would be so much fun! I could possibly make it up from the Twin Cities sometime in early or late July, depending on when you decide on dates. Or else my cavorting in streets named after prostitutes will have to wait til 2020 ;)

I got acquainted with a snowbird woman here who lives in Winnipeg.  She was excited I may come to her city this summer.  It is looking more and more like I will make it.  The hostel solution sounds good to me.

Okay, so we have 1 vote for Sept, 1 for August and 2 for end of July, so going to say end of July. I'm thinking to be there from about July 25 to July 30. What do you all think? If you can show up somewhere within that range, that'd be awesome. I have numerous people to visit, so I don't expect everyone to stay that many days, obviously.

I'm in! I already live in Winnipeg and recently chickened out of traveling to CMTO 2018, so to would be great to meet you cats without having to leave my dog. Also, I can coordinate canoe/kayak/dragon boating and feed you all beets.

You lost me at beets.  The rest sounds cool, though.

Yes!  [Even (especially?) the beets.]

Well, now that beets are on the table I may have to really try to come.

I can be there for the 20th weekend, or the 28th weekend.  I'll be in town anyway and the earlier date probably works better for me.

My July weekends are clear. Probably I have room to house a bunch of you hooligans.

If I kayak and learn what dragon boats can I skip the beets?
