I am interested in joining you for the day trip. I live in Atlantic, Iowa--80 miles west of DM, 60 miles east of Omaha. (For those of you coming from California, get on I-80, drive east approximately 2000 miles, turn south at exit 57 in Iowa, drive south 6 miles and you are in Atlantic). Most Saturdays or Sundays would work.

I shoot mainly LF and ULF.

Looks like we will have a nice group. Now we need to decide when and where.

I would say the SW or NE area of the state along one of the rivers would be good, but I'm open to suggestions.

As for when how does the last part of March or the first part of April sound?

End of March or early April sounds great Jim. As far as location, I'll leave that up to the rest of the group. I don't know much about the SW & NE corners of the state, but have always wanted a reason to see them. It sounds to me, though, that the SW corner will be closer for most of the group.

Early April works better for me than the end of March. Son #1 has spring break from March 23 to 28, Son #2 has the full last week of March off from college.

As for location, Ledges State Park is an idea. I have not been there for years, but memory tells me it is very nice. Located near Boone--a central location.

End of March won't really work for me...mainly due to the fact that I'll be going to pick up my enlarger in Omaha at that time. If we can get together in early April I can bore you guys with questions about my enlarger/papers/developers/etc. :p

How does the 2nd week end in April sound to everyone?

Second weekend in April is good for me at this point.

Cheers, Richard

If it is on a weekend, 2nd week of April works for me as well.

2nd weekend in April is the 8th? I have a wedding to shoot in Granger that day! Darn it! (Saturday) It's the last wedding I'll do, not my cup of tea! Ack!

How does the 3rd or 4th weekend sound to everyone?

I won't be able to do it the weekend of the 22nd, nor on Easter, but the rest of the month looks ok for me.

You're so sweet! LOL!
Those would work for me!!!! But, if everyone is better on the second weekend I'll have to catch the next one instead. Hope it warms up soon! I need to call the couple for the wedding because they've never contacted me for engagement pics and it's been forever since we met up...maybe things have changed....

We haven't discussed this for a few weeks. How does Sunday, April 9th, or Saturday, April 15th work for everyone?

Not sure yet. My boyfriend's niece and nephew usually have their birthdays on the same day around the middle of April. Sometime in April I'm going to go pick up my enlarger.

I'd really like to make this since I'm new and it would give me a chance to meet everyone, but I may have too much going on. :(
