    Any chance that you will get a larger venue to accommodate more people? Or maybe have the event on a second night? I tried to get in for 2 months and have not been able to yet.

    Hi Natalie I have tried twice to register, to no avail, so have never even been to one of your events.Regardless, I am not in a position to organize an event. Anyone else out there?

    January 2, 2014

    Thank you Natalie 1 hour or so. Looking forward to hearing Rob.

  • Constance

    Natalie just wanted to Thank you in advance for organizing this event.
    Myself I really appreciate that time you are spending so that all can benefit and enjoy. As I have organized many events I realize that people do not r understand how many hours it takes out of ones personal time. Great big Thank you to you. Meetups sites are tricky at the best of times.

    How did this happen? The rsvp was supposed to open up on Dec 31st? I checked again yesterday. My calendar had the reminder set for the date and time...

    December 28, 2013

    • Lynne D.

      I too am wondering about this.

      December 29, 2013

    • Natalie L.

      My bad. I thought the website was set up to register as soon as I post the event, and when I realized that it only allowed registrations on Dec. 31, I opened it and re-sent the invitation. Sorry for the confusion, this has not happened before.

    Hi Natalie looking forward to this. It will be my first time. How long do the presentations normally last? Not sure maybe I should direct this question to Rob?

    December 27, 2013

    • Natalie L.

      Hi Constance, presentations go for about an hour, with questions and answers to follow.

      December 30, 2013

  • Peter T.

    My wife and I made a similar trip about 18 months ago. I am interested in hearing about another experience. We were very disappointed in the Galapapos.

    December 29, 2013

  • Peter T.

    Hi Rob This my first attempt to join a meetup group. I see RSVPs are closed. I am not sure if thie means -am I too late to join the meeting? My wife and I made a similar sounding trip with Exodus early last year and I would be very interested in hearing your take on the experience. Cheers, Peter

    Natalie, I already had this marked in my calendar for some time. What is the change?
    The sign-up is still Closed. Gabrielle

  • Guylaine G.


    I don't understand why it is closed with only 2 persons registered?

    1 · December 21, 2013

    • Natalie L.

      Hi Guylaine. Not sure why this is the case. I just re-sent the email about the next meet up, so you should be able to rsvp now. Happy holidays to you and yours, Natalie
