San Diego is picking up momentum and is only one vote behind SF.

SD should be tied now. I picked it because it's a city I've never been to and I wouldn't mind buying drinks there next November.

SFO, of course! You can stay in the Bay on Alameda in our guest room!!! Meals at your request. Jack's a masseur!


ATL. I haven't been to my Alma Mater, Emory in decades. Great incentive!!!



Just being narcissistic!

Battle 3-Day 2009 looks like its going to have No Cal and So Cal going head to head. I suppose I could just do both .. but dang thats a lot of fundraising!

Since Chicago only has 1 vote.. I think Bob W can breathe easy about SeaDoo XI

Well, you would be here during Fleet Week which runs Oct 9-14 in 2008 (hopefully the dates will be close in 2009). Here's the web site with list of events you can attend after the Walk. There's even a parade in North Beach that weekend.

I voted for San Fran & San Diego. Love both cities. San Fran doesn't get too hot or too cold. San Diego is just a nice place to be.

Kudos for doing the 3-Day Walk! I'm sure you'll have a great experience regardless of which city you choose!

I just heard from one of my WHH homies that did SFO. Remember Cory? She said she had a good time, but I'm sure you can get the whole 411 from her if you want.

No blisters, my idea of heaven.

I'll be glad to train with you - 18/15/17 miles, no big wig. I'm just not up for the whole experience again. Then again, ask me next Monday, things might have changed.

If it's Fleet Week I have a feeling that missydarlin may choose this location even IF somewhere else is selected

Congrats Missy on undertaking this challenge; I wish you a good walk and no blisters to you and your sister tatas! *applause*

If I was insane enough to do this again, I'm not sure I would pick the weekend before the Seattle Marathon and Thanksgiving for travel headaches alone.

So, I would pick San Francisco even if it does overshadow the BULB SALE.

I am also thinking now that it would be preferable for me to do an early one and recapture my summer, you know what I mean? Because those weekends of 18/15 17/13 back to backs sucked the life force out of my ability to weed and drink copiously.

Will there be a run-off (walk-off? ) between SD and SF?

Had a group of friends do San Diego last year and they loved it so I voted for that.

It's a great event, much luck where ever you pick.

The other advantage is it gives you more time to fundraise.

since the walks would be later... those gnarly back to backs won't happen til Sept/October.. leaving you lots of drinking and weeding time in the summer.

Harvest time? Give up making jam for peanut butter uncrustables time?

I think NOT.

Maybe. Let's see.
