    Well... I won't be going to Maine, for financial reasons, but... I live in an RV park, and the spots right next to us are open, if anyone is closer to Hardin, Montana than other places. It's $25 a night, though. But we have a grill and lots of venison steaks...

    I just took a quick look at the location & month poll, and it's looking like Bangor in July or August is going to win outas our locale for the Great SKMB Hobnob.

    I also slipped over to weather.com and learned that August in Bangor tends to be a tad cooler than July....and about an inch less wet than either July or August, which bodes well for a gathering in a town park or state campground.

    Sooooooooo.....based upon those facts and figures, I'll make a suggestion with some qualifying arguments:
    Labor Day weekend is August 31 and September 1, with Labor Day itself on September 2. This is a) a long holiday weekend in the U.S. that is typically a family's last hurrah to go somewhere (and could be a reason why some folks here willl be unable to attend an SKMB bash), and b) a weekend when I'm guessing none of us want to vie with more folks for access to campground showers and fire pits, or tables in restaurants. Camping and beach time over Labor Day weekend are extremely popular, so I suggest we avoid meeting up then, as motels, places of interest, and parking lots are going to be overrun with the masses. (Mr. King has written plenty of references to Maine being a popular destination for summertime and holiday vactioners, most notably in Thinner and The Stand.)

    That leaves us with the weekends of August 3-4, 10-11, 17-18, and 24-25.

    I say we meet closer to the end of August, and choose between the 17-18 and 24-25.

    (Was all of that clear as mud? I hope so. I'm just trying to get a weekend established so that people can have the option of making reservations for anything well in advance.)

    Hi, Tawn!

    I'm not too terribly far from you. Washington state.

    Love the idea of August in Maine! Earlier would maybe be better as there seems to be a lot of teachers here on the board? Can't wait!!!

    Are we in agreement that the Great SKMB Hobnob (is there another name for it?) is going to occur in Bangor?

    I can put up a second (well, technically third) poll to determine which weekend in August is The One, if you guys think another more specific vote is the fairest way to go. (I just re-read my post; aside from typos, the glaring mistake was that August is less wet than either July or September. *sigh* I sometimes get into too much of a rush when I'm typing. But it was my argument for having the shindig in August instead of July or after Labor Day weekend.)
