According to the map, it doesn't seem like there has ever been a meetup in Colorado Springs. Anybody up for one this weekend?

Admittedly a bit short notice, but I just discovered (due to the East Coast snowpocalypse) that I'm going to be in Colorado Springs through this weekend. Are there any MeFites in the area up for a meetup?

I'm staying up in the northern suburbs, near the AF academy, but I have a car and would love to see some other parts of the city.

Anyone game?

Be careful, I hear there are no streetlights there.

Holy shit, how the hell did I not know about the Metup Map?! Thanks, Kadin2048!

That's a long way for me to go, and I don't happen to have a car any more, unfortunately. However, if I can finagle a ride from somebody, it may be a possibility.

I don't remember anybody from C Springs coming to meetups, unfortunately. Is anybody down there interested in doing this? Although as a rule I avoid that city, it would be interesting. Sort of like leaving the west to take a jaunt to East Berlin, circa 1983.

I think the map was an Anniversary Meetup feature that stuck around.

I drove out to Manitou Springs this evening just for the heck of it, and I could be convinced meet up out that way or in some other locale if that was more enticing to folks than Colorado Springs proper; I have no strong feelings either way.

Finally a meetup in the Springs, and I'm sick. Figures. I hope you can round up some other folks.

I would be up for a drive down from Denver normally but I'm outta town this weekend. Good luck. You could head up to Denver if you can drum up some folks there.

Woah, need to read more often. I'm in COS. I'm down.

Well I just got in from a long day of hiking (Red Rock Canyon, Garden of the Gods, the 'Incline') and now I'm afraid it may be a bit late to get something together for tonight.

I think I'll be back here in the not-too-distant future so maybe that time, with more advance warning, we can put together something (maybe something outdoorsy followed by the usual food/drinks?) as a group.

Of course, if my flight back to DC gets cancelled one more time I may just give up hope and declare residency. The view from the top of the Incline almost had me ready to this afternoon.

Ha! The incline. I always wanted to punch the people running past me as I huffed and puffed my way to the top. I miss the Springs.

damn, I didn't see this until today - am in the Springs. Sorry to have missed you this time, Kadin.
