Mid-autumn celebration, Iceland debrief, pictures, and stories galore!

Hello all,
Lots of people are interested in hearing about the Iceland adventure, and given that Max will be in town for the Wilderness Medicine Field course, we've decided to schedule a potluck/Iceland debrief for that Saturday. I will host at my home in downtown Silver Spring--red line metro-accessible! I'm going to add some more details into the comments section...so if you're interested please see below. Hope to see you there!

    Thanks for coming out everyone--great to meet some new folks too.

    Thanks for hosting such a great party, Denise! Given its success, I think our future socials should be potlucks. So much easier to talk than in a bar at happy hour!

    It was awesome seeing everyone again. We need more socials so newbies can check out the loonies they are potentially stuck with for 40 miles :)

    Great group of people, and the Iceland hike description and photos were terrific.

    What is the address?

    November 2, 2012

    • Denise

      I just emailed it, you should have gotten it. I don't post it to the page here because I'd rather it not be publicly available. Email me if you didn't get it for some reason please.

    • Carolyn G.

      Thanks. We must have been hitting "send" at the same time!

    Sorry for the last minute RSVP, but I would love to come meet everyone before signing up for a trip. Just let me know the address, and I will bring something delicious!

    • Denise

      Hey Michael, I already sent it to Millie, though I'm sure it wouldn't hurt for her to get it twice.'

      November 2, 2012

    • Michael M.

      I think she got it twice. I making two lasagnas, BTW, and bringing a case of beer.

      November 2, 2012

  • Holger

    Don't know yet what I'll bring. Kelly will be coming as well.

    November 1, 2012

    • Denise

      Looking forward to it Holger. Just don't call my dog "fat" this time, okay? Especially since you'd be right!

  • Jason W.

    Wish I could make it. Would love to catch up. Hopefully I can get out And drink all your whiskey again soon! Peace!

    November 1, 2012

    • Denise

      Wish you could make it too Jason, but understandable that you can't...hope you're having fun with the new baby!

    By the way, seeing as we'll have lasagna, thunder bread, an appetizer, pickled herring (or something like that) and a yummy-sounding dessert, I'll make sure we have some veges and other light stuff to go along with it. Ummm...please feel free to bring drinks? I'll make sure I have some stuff to get us started. While I don't expect things'll get too wild and crazy, I do have a couch that can be crashed upon, just in case.

    • Michael M.

      I'll bring an adult beverage of some sort, in addition to my main dish.

      November 1, 2012

    • MikeVW

      I'll pick up a few drinks on my way over as well, and an appetizer or dessert if something catches my eye at Whole Foods

  • Denise

    Hi all, I just sent everyone an email with my address and rudimentary directions and my phone number. Let me know if you didn't get it. See you Friday!

    October 31, 2012

  • Shelby P.

    Hi everyone, I look forward to meeting you all Friday!! I will bring chocolate chip cookie cheesecake bars and an appetizer I haven't thought of yet! :)

    October 30, 2012

    • Michael M.

      We look forward to meeting you, too!

      October 30, 2012

  • Max N.

    I'll be bringing a batch of homemade Rúgbrauð. Someone could bring stuff to go with it.

    October 30, 2012

    • Max N.

      I think it tasted best with smoked lamb and fish in Iceland, but meat, cheese, or just butter would work too.

      October 30, 2012

    • Michael M.

      I'll bring pickled herring or smoked salmon if no one else wants to.

      October 30, 2012

  • Michael M.

    I will be making my famous vegetarian lasagna!

    October 30, 2012

  • Denise

    All, I'm looking forward to Friday night's shindig! I'll email my address out to the RSVP list on Thursday. As for what to bring, this is a potluck-type event, so let's let everyone post as a comment here what s/he anticipates bringing...And, if for some crazy reason you're not able to bring anything, it's okay--come anyway, okay?

    October 30, 2012

  • Michael M.

    Hey Denise, what should we bring this weekend? :)

    As a taste of our slide show, Max has put together the following little video:

    It's pretty awesome. That opening video captures what that Arctic blast felt like!

    Here's some more info: 1. We'll set the exact time later, but probably around 7pm. If you're participating in the Wilderness Medicine/Survival course, you can come straight to my place from there. 2. Potluck...a term to define loosely especially since many of us will be in the course all day. I'm super close to a supermarket and liquor store and pizza places galore. We'll figure it out.

    3. Feel free to crash at my place if we end up running late/you drink more than is advisable for driving, or whatever. I'm fairly close to where we'll be doing the Wilderness Medicine training so if it makes life easier, no problem. (You might end up sleeping on the floor though--be warned!)

    Let me know if you've got any questions...Denise
