    I am marking this on my calendar for next year. I just hope my daughter does not have any event that I would need to attend. The group sounds exactly what I need. I am getting divorced after 31 years. Been together for 36. This is very stressful during the holidays.

  • Cheryl (.

    Sorry Jeff NO comparison ....we are NOT sleeping outside and freezing our butts off! And around here you never know if you get snow or not! I have been to Anchorage twice and saw the real deal ...even had a reindeer sausage sandwich (cried that night that Santa might be missing one for next year ...if he was it wasn't Dasher! Might have been Dancer since if you slow dance you stay in one place too long and sometimes you never know what direction to turn...in his case he might have turned towards the shot gun!!!)

  • Jeff R

    The week before this event I'll be sleeping outside in the snow with the boy scouts in Wisconsin and running a dog sled team up there so I'll be interested to compare and contrast.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
