Icrontic New Year 2021
Well, we cleared Oktoberfest, so I guess it's time to start announcing the next year of Icrontic events. Which means: New Years!
Thu, Dec 30 - Sun, Jan 2
No arrivals prior to Dec 29 please, and we have work Jan 3.
If you would like to stay in the house, please say so here.
If anyone can help procure a case of nice prosecco, hmu.
COVID BOOSTER REQUIRED (if you're eligible prior to the event).
In! I can help with the prosecco @Linc
How much of a bad idea is driving up to Detroit for New Year?
IMO, it really depends on the weather between you and Detroit. Here in Michigan, the last 3-5 years, it's cold but no snow or ice over New Years. Will it be that way this year? Can't say.
What I don't know is how snowy it is, normally, in southern Illinois/Indiana/Missouri in your path up here.
It used to almost always be shitty on NYE in my 20s/early 30s. You would be anxious to go out and it would either blizzard or freezing rain, several years in a row.
We would be doing Arkansas->Illinois->Kentucky->Ohio->Michigan. Going from Kentucky to Ohio can be nasty since it is through the mountains.
For what it's worth, I drive to Lancaster (8 hours across Ohio/PA) every year for Christmas and rarely have any issues / unfavorable weather. My suggestion would be to keep an eye on the weather and have flexible plans if things go sideways so you're not forced to drive in bad conditions.
We are in, just got to figure out what to do with the cats
My friend Alf can take care of cats.
Should I light the oven on fire again?
In. I'mma start planning the beer tasting now and will do everything I can not to slice my hand open again!
Is it even considered a successful IC event if you don't?
Dunno when we're showing up, but we're leaving Jan 3rd. Got an 8pm flight.
We are showing up in town on the 29th and leaving the 2nd. Gonna be driving and staying down the road a bit at a hotel.
Will visit at least one day
If you're eligible for a booster, get it well before ICNY. Like, now.
In for 12/31 - 1/2 x 2 humans and 1-2 dogs, if the dogs are still ok w you @Linc . Would like to stay @ the house. All humans boostered, all dogs properly vaxxed as well.
Ill be there in spirit. 1. Because I cant make it, and 2. Because while I am Vaccinated and INTEND to get the booster, I also have a crippling needle phobia (I mean screaming in a corner bad just thinking about getting stuck with one) and am still preparing to take it.
