Fort Wayne last week of August?

Post by LikeableRodent » Mon Aug 19, 2013 11:00 am

It's been something like six or seven years since I last stepped foot in the Fort (and five since I was even in the States), but as of next week it seems that I'm going to find myself once in the cultural vacuum of northeast Indiana known as Fort Wayne.

So does anyone want to meet up? Is there actually anywhere to meet up anymore? And who's left there, anyway? Merk? Riot? Erica, are you in Idaho now?

Help me out here, people. I have about two weeks I'm going to need to kill in Fort Wayne and need some help doing so.

Riot lives and works in Fort Wayne and my family still lives there so I visit. As far as I am aware that is the extent of the old school DDR people other than ChocoboJoe but I don't think he's played DDR in a while. Erica is out in Idaho, Zach ("SDP") lives in Oregon, and all the weird goth kids either quit or presumably ended up dead or in prison.

Tokens 'n' Tickets "upgraded" to Supernova and moved to a new location, Putt-Putt allegedly got rid of all their shit, Lazer-X might still have 5th mix, and there's a handful of weird bowling alleys that still have a cabinet. I think there's a place with a DDR Max and there's a place called *I think* Crazypins that has a Supernova.

So that leaves Riot and Joe. Hmm, I need to contact Joe and see if he's available.

Are you planning on ending up in Fort Wayne anytime from the 27th up to about a week or two later?

And it seems that all the old locations are pretty much dead, eh? Shame. I haven't hopped on a DDR pad in quite some time, but I was hoping to at least do a bit of it for old time's sake.

As is the usual story, only if I can get a ride. Have carpooling/ride sharing websites caught on while I was away?

I smuggled a shinkansen home in my luggage last month.

Heck, I'd be happy with a slow local train.
Knowing about the US's dearth of public transportation throws me for a loop. I want trains!

Yeah I can come up to Fort Wayne just about whenever unless I have obligations elsewhere. I can even offer a ride from Fort Wayne to Indy / Ho's place and back if that is an option and you don't mind throwing some money my way for gas.

Would something like August 30th through September 1st work? The following weekends are not going to work for me unfortunately.

Well then, that was easy.

I have an obligation for the morning of the 30th, however in the late afternoon I should be good to go, assuming that Ho's alright with us crashing there.

A visit sounds great, but I don't really have any room for people to stay at the moment as I have some people visiting for the long Labor Day weekend. Timing could be tricky on this.

Labor Day? Who makes up these holidays?

Well Merk, I have no obligations except for the morning of the 30th, so whenever you want to come up to Fort Wayne is fine with me. As for getting to Indy to see Brian, I'm not sure how that would work. Anyone have any suggestions?

I'd actually be cool with this, but I'm not sure what's going on that weekend. It's a 3 day weekend, so travel might be on the table. On the other hand, I am bound by the IndyDDR moderator code:

1. Never look at the wives of friends.
2. Never be seen with cops.
3. Don't go to pubs and clubs.
4. People who can't be part of IndyDDR Moderators are anyone with a close relative in the police, with a two-timing relative in the family, anyone who behaves badly and doesn't hold to moral values.
5. Give housing to IndyDDR moderators if asked.
Music is a special thing because everyone is wrong on everything but it all works out in the end and we all get high as shit.

If Merk is fine with hopping up to Fort Wayne then down to Indy and if Ho is up for us showing up and if Fluffy is up for us staying overnight, I'm up for it all.
