    Paging @Kimmers @moose @Erie (soon!) and any other Florida chickens.

    We need a chicken meetup stat, before Kimmers moves away. We can plan the specifics via PM, but I wanted to put something up publicly in case there are more Florida chickens than I can remember. Or any chickens from other places that might happen to be in Florida between now and March 1st that we can add to the party.

    I will be in Tampa Feb 2-5 to apartment hunt and could fit in breakfast on Saturday or Sunday, or possibly dinner Saturday or Sunday!

    Otherwise I'll just see @Comet and @moose after I move in (hopefully April 29!) and sadly will miss @Kimmers. Until she comes back to visit Disney.

    Erie’s weekend would work for me! I’m pretty flexible, pretty much just packing and making day trips to Disney between now and March 1st!

    I wouldn't be able to drive more than an hour from Tampa, though, our schedule is pretty tight while we're there. I don't want to make anyone have to drive too far instead of meeting in the middle, so if you'd all rather do something before @Kimmers leaves maybe I can meet up with her that weekend separately too!

    Oh man, I can’t do that weekend after all. I totally forgot that’s the weekend we have a friend staying with us!

    I'm open most weekends in January and February. I'm still waiting for a schedule for my FET - should be mid-February but I'm sure it will be on a week day. And M's birthday is 2/18, so I think that's the only weekend that doesn't work for me. I'd love to meet somewhere in the middle (Orlando-ish?) if possible.

    My birthday is January 27th and we are going away that weekend, and then our friend is visiting Super Bowl weekend. But other than that I’m free!

    Ok, here are the weekends that everyone seems to be available (except sadly @Erie who we'll have to plan something with once she moves down!):

    January 20-21 (this weekend) - @moose Will you be gone on a honeymoon though?
    February 10-11
    February 24-25 - @Kimmers Will this be too close to the move for you?

    ETA: @Chevere Do you want to meet up also?

    I’m good with any of those! First choice would be February 10 or 11. But I think I can make any of them work if one of the others is better for the two of you. So excited to meet up!

    One of the February dates would be my preference. @moose @Chevere Thoughts?

    I can do any of the above except January 20th unless something changes with my work situation and I'm working (in which case I'd just let you all know and you can proceed without me). :)

    Let's shoot for February 10th or 11th then. @moose Let us know if that won't work for you.

    Ugh I found a perfect little 2 bedroom duplex that's walkable to the beach and in our price range, but I don't think it's worth contacting them about because it's available for move in now (and we want to move in in 3 months lol). I just got REALLY excited about the possibility of walking to the beach! Realistically though, if we can't tour it when we're there in two weeks, we probably wouldn't want to rent anything sight unseen, so it probably eliminates the possibility of renting from a landlord like this versus a complex. But...beach!

    @Erie are you using a moving company or driving a van down yourselves? Because you would have a few weeks if using a moving van if you wanted to wait u til you arrived in St. Pete to finalize your lease.

    We are moving ourselves with a Budget truck since we aren't bringing very much with us. So we'll have to have it unloaded and returned within the rental window. That's a good thought though!

    I contacted the realtor, and like I suspected, it's already on the market. I'm so used to places here posting vacancies 2-3 months in advance, so apparently that's not a thing there.

    It's fine, we have some really great complexes on our list to visit in two weeks. But beach.

    I will be in the Orlando area from the 20th (MLK day) until the crack of dawn on the 24th. Anybody available to get together? Monday late afternoon or evening is the easiest, but I may be able to sneak out Tuesday or Wednesday evening.

    I could possibly make that Monday evening happen!
