Lightbulb The Great Ithaca Falls PhotoCamel Meetup!!!!

So, fall is quickly approaching, any interest in a meetup? I'm in Rochester, and I'm willing to drive 3 hours or so. Anyone else interested and have some ideas as to where to meet?

Let's have it all here!

How about flying 3 hours to Tampa ? Go to the beach, fish for Tarpon and Redfish on the flats, grouper in the gulf or large mouth bass in the lakes, scuba and spearfishing in the Keys and check out a commercial studio. Maybe later in the winter when you've got that 18% grey card sky in Rochester and the snow is blowing off the lake? I've been to Rochester in the winter......

Seriously......

Sounds like my retirement plans.... If I ever have the spare change, I will take you up on that one I used to go down to Tampa every Feb., just after the strawberry festivals, for the Tropical Fish Farmers' Convention.

My wife regularly does solo, overnight trips to the Florida Keys to collect turbo snails on the Bayside flats for her saltwater reef tanks. She'll come back with 300 snails which retail up north for about $2-$3 per snail. She snorkels for them. When we go together and take our boat she collects soft gorgonians, sea fans, anemonies, jaw fish, small tropical fish, snails and LIVE sand !!!!! Apparently live sand is better than dead sand.

I'm down I live about an hour north on NYC. Unfortunately I don't travel much out towards middle NY, I usually go north in NY to camp and stuff. I'm pretty unfamiliar with the central NY area.

The Monroe County place looks really cool though And it looks the the finger lakes are within reasonable driving distance on 90.

Anybody else interested??
