It's time for a change around here!!!! Let's do it.

Narwhal Island

You are a Member of SoCal Redditors. (insert sound of applesauce) It's been a great home . . . . sometimes we grow or outgrow. Like a hermit crab moving from one shell to another for a new home.. . . So Cal Redditors is moving over to LA Redditors. https://www.meetup.com/LA-Redditors/Join Technically we are moving back in. Whatever. . . it's a long convoluted story that does not matter. What does matter is this: This (old) group will remain on meetup. It will evolve into a geeky do-it-your-self (local) road trip and overseas travel group. and And AND!!! The New (old) Home of Reddit in LA on Meetup will be https://www.meetup.com/LA-Redditors/Join The more things change . . .the more they stay the same. The organizers from here will be there. Of course and especially including Sam. Margo is back too. So the band is getting back together. Let's rock it. What's that? You have questions of what this will be in the future or now? Well . . . . . . . . . . . Have you ever wanted to do a road trip but did not have people to join you? . . . . . . Have you ever wanted to do a complicated overseas trip and wanted a travel buddy (or buddies) to help you plan and go with you? . . . . . . Have you ever wanted to go camping but all the camping and hiking groups are all too hardcore and you want simple car camping? The idea will be simple . . . All members are Organizers and can post, . . . HOWEVER the rule is NO pro trips. It will be a friendly group of like minded geeks and nerdy travelers who share a passion for visiting local or long distance destinations, or for those thinking about travel or world travel for the first time. WHAT WILL AND WILL NOT HAPPEN The aim will be to meet monthly for drinks in the city. The objective is to make new friends, share travel stories, tips and thoughts about exciting places that we've visited, or plan to visit in the near future and to remind ourselves why people who travel the world are such good fun to be around. Pretty much it's still the Reddit Meetup... just taking it on the road. A Reddit Road Trip . . . if you will. There will not be presentations, slide shows and we will not allow commercial ventures to be pushed on you. Travel companies looking to promote their commercial services won't be here. This is aimed at populist travel. As leads . . . . we will make sure to steer when needed. Meet Ups are based upon your personal interaction with other members within the group. There is no formal meeting agenda for these events. However you prefer to travel, we hope to see you at an event soon. Seriously . . . let's post a road trip!!! NOTE TO COMMERCIAL TRAVEL ORGANIZATIONS: This is a non-commercial, social travel group. Promotion of goods, services or the solicitation of Members at Meet Ups, through the Meet Up messaging portal, Message Boards or via this website in any other way, by commercial organizations, non-commercial organizations, or by individuals is contrary to the spirit of the group and will result in expulsion from the group at the sole discretion of the group leadership. Unless specifically stated, all Meet Ups are non-commercial events. Commercial and non-commercial Message Board solicitations may be deleted by the Organizer without notice. Soooooooooooooooooo . . . .did that clear it up? To summarize: SoCal Redditors moving to LA Redditors Sam in at the helm of LA Redditors and will make it rock your socks. https://www.meetup.com/LA-Redditors/Join SoCal Redditors will remain and become an awesome Road Trips and Populist travel group. In other words . . . Reddit on the Road. Question? Comments? Issues? Hand Grenades? Yeah . . . we all got issues. Feel free to lob the grenades or to hurl compliments too. Hugs and Kisses @TheOddEyeSees (get it . . . it's a pun, . . . The Odyssey, . . . a long journey )
