    Default Meet up scheduled, need help

    Ok yall, @RaRett has put a challenge out there and I accept it, with help from ya'll.

    Lets organize a centralized meeting place for NJ, NY, DE and PA so we can all meet everyone from the board that lives in those areas.
    How far are *you* willing to travel to meet others from EBN?

    we know bully's don't like the heat so what month would be a good idea to schedule this in? Or would the weather matter if I can get an indoor/air conditioned meeting place?

    Let me know whatcha think

    April and October at the popular months for 'picnic' style get togethers - as its the best 'temperature' for the bullies
    April's events include
    Yappy Hour for Mid-Atlantic Bulldog Rescue
    Bullyfest for Heaven Sent Bulldog Rescue.

    Oct - there is usually a Yappy Hour in october if memory serves me, and I think there is an OctoBULLfest -

    I posted this information just so when planning, we dont pick a similar date, as there are some of us, who try to get to these functions

    May and September are Really IFFY Months for outside activities due to Heat - and we all know Jun-Jul-Aug are Definately OUT due to heat.

    We travel about 3 each way hours for the Yappy Hour, and that is about our Maximum range. I'm not sure how its going to go now, that I'm working overnights 8pm until 630am Tues-Friday (Which means I get off for my weekend at 630am Saturday morning).

    So anywhere in New Jersey is 'reachable' and Eastern PA to about Allentown, Washington DC is about the southern extent (but I wont drive in the blood city! LOL)

    Good luck with this challenge, I know you can do it ! ! ! !

    Blue's scared of cars . We're trying to get him used to them slowly, but so far it's been a painful process. Also, we're in the city so don't even own a car. We've been doing ZipCar for an hour here. an hour there just for Blue.
    So, it really can't be a long drive for us anytime soon. More than an hour and a half is not doable right now. Even that is really pushing it for Blue.

    I'm about 1 hr NW of Philly and willing to travel up to 2 1/2 - 3 hours for a meet..... Banks also HATES cars so we have Xanax to help her with long rides.

    Xanax is a great idea and if he doesn't get used to cars, will try it when he's older.

    I give her half tablet (not sure of miligrams, I can check)... 30 mins before going in car. She is still NOT happy, but her anxiety is not bad at all

    I posted on here the other day and I don't see the post anymore. Jen @thesspa and I are totally willing to host a bully meet up event at our house, it's going to have to be in the fall though because our fence is still not fixed from Sandy and won't be fixed for another few weeks. With events on the 20th in Asbury, the 28th for Heavensent, and one in NYC on the 5th we will be out of safe bully play weather by then so it will have to wait until then. We are in NW NJ in West Milford, we have a big fenced in back yard that all the fur kids could run around like crazy in.

    Wow, that's really great of you guys.
    Just checked and you're about an hour away from us, so the drive shouldn't be too bad for Blue.

    @Baconator That is so sweet of you to offer your home to us! I will take you up on that offer. You're 2 hours one way for us but worth the trip
    Lets see who else can make it. Getting together in the fall is fine by us!

    Thanks again! You ROCK
