Chloe Cougar joins the Gang!

Post  Chloe Cougar on Sun Jan 23, 2011 3:25 pm

OK Twatwaffles, Imma join this forum even though I've no idea (as yet) whether I'm gonna make it to Forks2011 this year... Embarassed

I SO want to! But, as I'm from the UK, costs may prevent... I have a hubs and two teenage sons, but frankly, if I say I'm going to Forks, then I'm going to Forks - woe betide anyone who stands in my way!

What would really help me, would be to know whether it's better for me to book a flight from London, UK to somewhere on the East Coast, and then book an internal flight to Seattle. Would that work out cheaper? Does anyone know?

Added to that, I haven't flown to the States in over 10 years - am I likely to be spending my entire time suffering from jet lag? If so, I'll need to look at extending my stay... any ideas?

Oh,and then there's that little issue of a roomie Embarassed Any offers?

Cheers m'dears!

No matter... I'll watch how things develop!

Hey, bb! Well, if you end up coming and still need a roomie, as of right now, I have a spare bed (my original roomie ditched). Keep us posted!

O_o! I feel it's all becoming real now! It would be just great to share with you! sunny I won't know for a while yet, whether I can really make it, but if you could give me an idea of cost, that would help...

Oh noes! I've already had a taker. It looks like I'm sharing a room with a gal named Darcy - she's around here somewhere - she PM'd me yesterday and I meant to come back over here and update my thread. Sad Sorry! I'm sure others will need roommates, too, though - that's how it happened last year. But keep me posted, and I'll definitely try to help you hook up with someone!! (I mean, find a roomie, not "hook up" hook up. Wink)

I have a room to share

Post  mamaliciouscullen on Tue Feb 01, 2011 1:00 am

Hi Chloe! I have a room with 2 queen beds booked and I need a roomie, so You are welcome to share. My intro is over on the intro thread for more about me. But I will also add that I don't smoke, do like beer, also don't like being hungover (don't want to waste my first FORKS pilgrimage being sick!), and make funny noises in my sleep (according to my husband) Razz

Let me know what you think or if ya need more info!

And you're called Kristen? I can't believe my luck's in again Cool

OK, Kristen, (actually, my name's not really Chloe, but it'll do for now Wink ) I would love to share. I'm assuming you've booked at Twitarded HQ? If you could give me an idea of cost, that would help immensely - I'm putting together a Business Case to present to MrCC so that he has no possible way of scuppering my plans Razz

Next thing I have to work out is flights. I'll be coming over from the UK, so will probably aim to get to Seattle a little before Thursday (just so as I have a bit of time to get my ageing body clock sorted Shocked ). Carpool / ride will therefore be a bonus too (can someone hire a minivan? *looks around expectantly*).

Like you, I'm in my 40s. I have 2 teenage sons and live a closet Twitarded life Wink ). Anyhoo, let me know whether you've still got space and I'll start the next step of the plans!

Hi CC!

It would be so awesome if you came to Forks! I can give you some rough numbers on costs of things if needed since I went last year. Forks Motel is around $100/night so divide that by the number of people sharing. I rented a Suburu Outback for 3 days and the total was $250 and we split that 4 ways (found riders to share on the forum). We filled the gas tank 1.5 times. Sightseeing is essentially free in Forks. Meals and drinks can be as much or as cheap as you like. I brought booze along and drank less at the bar. We stopped at the store and bought bagels and juice and snacks to eat so I only ate out 3 meals. There is a small refrigerator and a microwave in the motel rooms. Let me know if you need more info. Please feel free to email me at mickimartini1@gmail.com

It's still in the planning stages....

Post  Chloe Cougar on Wed Feb 09, 2011 5:58 pm

I am so loving this forum! Very Happy It's made me realise that the only thing standing in my way is me, oh, and maybe that little thing called money Mad

However, we've a few months to go yet, so I'm busy squirreling away every little bit of spare cash I have. This will happen! And now I've made friends with SwedenSara on Twitter, I can pick her brains for travelling tips Very Happy

Fingers crossed I'll see you all later in the year! geek

Hello! Another Brit just signed up here! I'd love someone to travel with but am in Lancashire and won't be able to afford to travel down south too, to fly.

Anyway, nice to meet you! Hope you can make it.

I have a room thanks to BrandiJo, but that's all. Yes, I will be flying from Manchester but not sure where to yet. Ideally I'd like to fly to Portland to see Amy (Starlit Violets), but it will depend if I can pick up a lift from there to Forks, I really don't want to have to drive on the right!

Brace yourselves h00rs - it's getting real!

Post  Chloe Cougar on Thu Jun 16, 2011 3:43 pm

So, for those of you who don't follow me on Twittah (and I'd like to ask: WHY don't you? Wink ) the good news is that I've not only broken the news properly to my darling hubs and sons, but I've also had my leave sanctioned at work!

No going back now What a Face

Still haven't booked flights, but I'm in discussion with LoriAnnTwiFan (who is one of my permanent betas - I love her so), and may well be flying via Atlanta, in order to meet up with her and her friend en route.

Stan Edbrella - what's your situ now? Still interested in flying together from Heathrow?

I can be pretty flexible with dates - though I need to double check what mamaliciouscullen has got booked for us at Twitarded HQ - and do I still have the offer of an airbed, spottysmom? Ideally, I'd flurve to meet with peeps in Seattle beforehand Very Happy

I can't begin to tell you all how excited I am!

Jussumchic: Hey CC, regarding those tickets. Mr.Chic used to travel frequently between the West Coast and Heathrow. The nonstop flights always seemed to be similarly priced as compared to those with stops in between and he always seemed to 'recover' from the journey better with fewer stops. As for jetlag, having done it myself a several times, I'd suggest sleeping based on when/where you are gonna land and grabbing some 5 Hour Energy drinks!

Not sure how much this will help at this point (especially since you may be flying via ATL) but thought I'd reach out. Good luck. I hope to meet you in FORKS!

hey CC! glad you have broken the news and are still here to tell the tale LOL! I have also not booked my flight yet - if you fly into atlanta, let me know and I will also get a connector there - as it seems i cannot get a direct flight from where i am - and even if it is longer flying time, i would rather meet up with some folk for most of the journey! Still have that 4-person room booked at Forks motel - and I may also try to get into Seattle a day before and meet up at the Mayflower where there will be a gang of ladies... Laughing

Hey Jussumchic, that's been really helpful! I hadn't even thought of trying to 'sleep ahead'! I hope to organise some of that melatonin stuff (Is that what it is? We can't buy it here in the UK) to try to help my body clock adjust, but having an action plan in advance will certainly be a bonus - as will the energy drinks! I don't usually drink sugary stuff (other than wine Razz ), but have been known to down a can of Relentless while driving overnight through France last year for our holidays.

Also good to know that the flight prices don't appear to differ much - I aim to make that my next task. It's on my 'To Do' list!

Looking forward to meeting you in Ffooorrrrkkkkkssssss! Very Happy

I'll most certainly keep you informed, K Very Happy

I'm so bloody excited, it's proving very difficult keeping quiet about it all. But all I've really told people at work is that I'm travelling to the States. Of course, my husband knows I'm ultimately heading to Forks, but I doubt he has any idea just how raucous the trip is likely to be affraid

September can't come soon enough Cool

So, since things are hotting up in terms of my travel plans [though I have yet to actually book the flight(s) Shocked ] I figured it's about time I changed my avi, so that your h00rs actually recognise me when I arrive Smile

So, um, this is me... Embarassed
