Hook, line, and sinker.  Beem's desperate attempts at validation are always fun to watch.

There were 2 things in Beems' pictorial that looked enticing - the cart on a wire and the basketball game.  Rumblings of a zip line going over the river at next month's riverfest.  I'd rather go to EMAW basketball. 

I saw the waterfall thing on All-Star Sports' mini-golf course.

Can't wait for MiddleEastHawk to try to sway me with post card pictures from the Gaza Strip.

It's not my style, but Portland is a very nice place to live.

Looks like a complete dump from those angles.
I once blew clove smoke in a guy's face that cut in front of me in the line to KJ's.

Interesting tidbit  -  the term "Skid Row" originated in Portland, OR. from skid road.

Beems can't leave the drugs alone. Isn't really his fault imo
If it were up to me, Wintz would be on a fan scholarship, full ride.

this is a thread where you can post your vacation/travel needs and the goEMAW travel experts assist you.  

actually starting it because I have an idea/options request.  family wants to vacation somewhere this holiday season from the 26th of December to the 30th or 31st.  travel party consists of two young married couples, two single males and the patriarch/matriarch of the group.  kind of late notice to hit the big spots.  a lodge in Vail will probably either be booked up by now or ridiculously priced (but please post evidence of otherwise if you have it).  I have no idea what the budget is but would describe it as moderate from the talks I have had with the benefactor which really didn't help me in nailing down a number.  i am supposed to provide numerous options with cost breakdowns.  everyone probably flying out of wichita.

yeah, have heard great things about turkey and would like to go myself.  budget of family unit would be busted on flight though.  climate doesn't really matter but would probably not want colder than KS.

Some friends and I did a trip to keystone on those exact same days a few years ago. Worked out well but we crammed 6 people into a 2 person condo thing.

Do the majority of ICT drinking in the main bar near the airport entrance BEFORE going to your gate.

Have never been. Friends went not too long ago. Not sure what your group is into, seems like a great mix of scenic driving, skiing, and casinos though. I'll ask my friends for recommendations.

gracias.  can't really even say what the group is into.  gambling probably isn't important.  non-strenuous adventure that is very group inclusive?  is that a thing?  that would be the thing if so.
