Title: ShaL's Summer APM aka Real Life Recommended Playing Time
Post by: ShaLeah on February 23, 2016, 10:00:13 PM
We had such a great time last year that we're doing it again!

Dates to be determined but our range is late July to late August. If you're definitely coming sound off please.
If you're thinking about coming let me know.

Isn't that your unofficial job, making deliciousness for the hung-over masters?

Same place as it was last year. MY HOUSE! (http://gdb.armageddon.org/index.php/topic,49194.0.html)

My girls were here the whole time, path and dig's girls were here so it's kid friendly.

Crash space is first come, first serve (couples and people with babies/kids have bedroom priority). We had people on couches, blow up mattresses, pull out beds, benches on the deck and even on the floor. Everyone stayed here. People contributed food and booze, we all shared, Barzalene made the most amazing pies that didn't last two days, she made these lemon ricotta blueberry pancakes that were to die for.

We drank so much that by day 4 people were too floppy to do anything but eat sammiches and nap. Great times.

Shal's house is in New Jersey, basically on the beach.

As far as no secrets goes, we mostly get drunk, get nostalgic about past characters, play tabletop and board games, and swim in her pool.

Oh, and eat way too much and get fat.  I think I gained 8 lbs in Barz's pies last time.

So, uh, I basically never check in here unless it to see about Dragon Con and people going. I -might- be interested, but funds are super tight and I doubt I could convince hubby that a trip north with a bunch of Arm Players would be a good idea, LOL. I'll try and remember to check in here with later on when there are more details though.

Y'all are so uncreative. Favors are not only coins! She needs me to bake her boyfriend a pound cake. I might do that. She might need me to come mow her lawn, I could do that... Sometimes, it's just about breaking your back. My mother would never take money from me, anyway.

ShaL's House - always my house!
I have beds for:
14 adults provided some sleep together and aren't TOO big
1 queen in private bedroom
1 queen in private bedroom
2 double in private kids bedroom (will force to sleep in parental bed for the week or they might be in PR at the time)
1 double pull out in great room
1 pull out queen in playroom/bar
1 blow up queen (maybe even 2)

Women/mothers get priority cause, well, privacy, preferential treatment and boys will sleep anywhere.

I have two couches, one can sleep two, one chaise and hopefully I'll have my hammock up outside by then.

Must bring spice/food/booze/sid/games to share. Must bring bathing suit.

Must expect lots of swearing, food, debauchery, naps and hangovers.


If you bring your children I -will- be parenting and likely scare the fuck out of them soooooooo be aware.



Not sure on dates yet.

Anything in particular work for people?

If I'm not on a different vacation and have any time off left then I will be there with bells on. (But no chocolate pretzel pizza because that store closed!) If I am not on a different vacation and don't have time off left, I'll come down Friday and leave Sunday.

Even though Jersey isn't THAT far from me, all things considered, it was like pulling teeth to get the girlfriend to meet Barz and another Armer in Disney when we went. A weekend to hang out with a bunch of drunk nerds, while ABSOLUTELY AWESOME, would probably end in me owing her something, or hearing about how we could've used that weekend to do something else.

I will, however, demand either a Twitch Livestream of the event, or a Skype-call in center. Preferably, Blaze wears one of those 3d cameras on his head and that's what we all see (or maybe someone else, Blaze's face is too handsome to be off camera)

I am, but don't, generally.

She is the type to have no problems dragging my ass to weddings or family events (because she has a huge family) but when I have something -I- want to go to, I can feel her disappointment and boredom as she trails behind me.

At Disney, I tried to reference her and engage her a half dozen times, but she's not good with new people (Masters in Therapy, hard time talking to new people...)

Also, and I can't stress this enough, we can't afford to live with student loans right now, so any promises six months from now are laughable. ($700 just to Navient, because "all your credit scores say you're in good standing so clearly you can afford that monthly hit, out of nowhere)

Driving is relatively cheap if you carpool especially. Just saying.

Two years ago was epic. No one died and no one got pregnant. Total win.

Anyone near here should come even if just for the day. Every APM I've ever been to with Arm players has been awesome. DragonCon is too expensive for me to warrant it and I just don't get off enough on geeking out AT the Con to justify. Both times I was there it was like a Fale/gypsy/Guild/Kurac party for me. I'm no longer into that kinda debauchery on a global scale.

Personal choice.

We're off Exit 117 on the Garden State Parkway which goes all the way through Jersey, no need for TPK driving.

Also, how close is this to Jay and Silent Bob's Secret Stash out of curiousity?

No idea what that is but if it's code for weed I'm sure I can hook you up.

EWR (Newark) is the airport you'd want to fly into and, yes, Byn escorts to and from the airport can generally be arranged.  Anyone flying into JFK instead of Newark will be charged an "I hate NYC" tax.

DO NOT fly to New York. Oh my god. Even if you're going there.

Dig and Path will not be going. That's my guess. I cashed in half my vacation weeks this year and I believe my remaining weeks will be spent elsewhere. Last time was really stressful for me anyway, with the kids and the not drinking and the leaving at 5 in the morning to beat traffic in order to begin our coastal road trip. It would probably be the same story this time.

If you're into drinking and roleplaying and sharing Armageddon stories while throwing people in the pool, this shindig is your bag. You should go and keep careful documentation.

LaGuardia is such a mess. I would rather take two extra days off to drive all the way home than have to fly out of that nightmare factory. Or like, pay a little extra to get a flight at an airport that's both closer to Shal's house and WAY more laid back.

It is. It's also like, eons away. I know. I know. I'm gonna wait a little while and see if the prices drop so I don't have to drive an hour to the cheapest airport around here to fly outta.

Same here. SFO or SJC to Newark is running about $860 round trip. I got a much better deal than that 2 years ago, so I'm hoping the prices will dip downwards in the next month or so.

I set up price alerts on mah phone. Charlotte has them cheap for about ~$180 a piece, but unless Kismetic is going to come and drive me down there, it'd just be cheaper to fly out of GSO because I doubt I can finagle someone to get me down there for free.

And no one wants to drive to fucking Charlotte anyway. Ugh, 85.

I have to be in Pittsburgh on the 28th but mah naming day is the 21st so we're gonna do the weekend of the 21st.

Barzybaby (I think) told me 6 weeks out is the cheapest find on flights.

Newark is the only way to go BUT I think now we have Southwest and Spirit are cheapo and fly into Nwk.

Jay and Silent Bob are 20mnts down the road. We can go there. 

Last time we were all too drunk all the time to actually leave the compound. I think a small group took a walk down to the beachfront but that was it.

Do we wanna do something touristy?  Let's discuss here!

I vote we let Dig and Path's childrenz stay at the grandparents and they can come solo. I'm kicking minez out for the summer.

I could have sworn Adhira mentioned something about trying to make one of my APMs. *cough* Just sayin'.

Did Nyr divorce his wife yet? I'm looking for #5.  I'm totally using boog as a distraction for #4.

Oh and if it's REASONABLE to pick anyone up on the way from Michigan to NJ I could be into that.  Especially if a little help with extra gas money is provided.  States I drive through include: Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania.  I'm willing to go decent distances off major highways but it's even better if you could leave your car at a park'n'ride if they even have those out there you crazy kids.
