I wish to become Fellow Moai

Good evening everyone, My name is Gil and I'm from probably the least tropical piece of real estate in the world, Buffalo, New York. I may have even run into a few of you in my travels... I respectfully request guidance so I may become a Moai.

Only on the outside.

And I have to ask.... how did you get down from the glacial ice flows of upstate New York and then drift into our little lagoon here on the internet?

Welcome follow polar bear!!! Have you ever done a Penguin Plunge since you live in the Great North? I've jumped into Lake Champlain, in February, 3 times. Brrrrr. I much prefer the pool at the Tiki Lodge in Lake George!!

Well I work for a large Buffalo Based bank in the Technology division. I have a wife of 25years (as of 7/17/2018 and I didn't forget my Anniversary!) who is a Buffalo Teacher, and I have one daughter in College, who is an artist. I like living in Buffalo, when it's not snowing! Mostly because, if you live in this city it still feels like a small town, and someone you know is bound to know someone else you know. I do some local charity work in the community and hope I am making a difference.

I'm thinking a combination of good music, festive drinks and possibly a little bit of global warming in our Pacific Coastal trenches. I tend to move around a bit. I'm originally from Showlow, Arizona, but settled in Buffalo after my Army days to go to school up here. I just never left. Where I grew up it snowed, so Buffalo is not that drastic a change. I like living here but would prefer someplace a bit warmer. 8)

I have never done it, but would consider it if the opportunity ever came up and I had the proper motivation. I sometimes go to the Bahamas in February, (Teacher break time) and I laugh when they apologize for it being only 70 degrees and cold!

I look forward to meeting more of you in the near future.

The Veiled Pearl pop-up at Hydraulic Hearth was awesome. Nice Pics! That's one thing I always forget to do.

Brrr, Buffalo NY. It's cold up there. Just don't come to Florida to live because it's to frickin hot. Fun place to visit, but oh the heat. :(

Have fun at Dragon Con G-Z! See if you can hit the Vortex while you are in Atlanta!

Thanks, I agree I should move! I hope someone can make it out to Shameful on the 1st.
I'm planning on being there for a bit after FanExpo Toronto.
