    AnabolicMinds Members Olympia Road Trip


    I thought I would start a AnabolicMinds Olympia Road Trip thread.

    I went to one two years ago. I went to go see the guys at Avant Labs. They had a booth as well as did 1fast. I had the opportunity to meet Twin Peak, Dante, dsade, Tkarrde, Jodi, Leslie, eclypz, Par and Mike. I had a great time meeting the guys and girls of AvantLabs as well as great "family fun" in Vegas that weekend.

    My wife has a birthday on 10-13 (same as "The Red Rocker" BTW) and her grandmother lives in Vegas. I get to kill three birds with one stone when I go to the Olympia in Vegas. See grandma (my daughters great grandma), my wife loves Vegas (especially on her birthday...bonus points) and I get to see some of the guys I spend a lot of time talking BB and supplements with on-line.

    It would be cool if we could get more guys from the board to join in on the road trip. We could support Designer Supplements by visiting their booth and we could also further develop the on-line relationships we have here as AnabolicMinds board members. So I thought I would open this thread and provide some general information (posted below) regarding the show and venue. I will be getting my plans in place in the next few weeks and will update on when I am driving up, where I am staying and what not. I usually go budget unless my Vegas Grandma comps me at some casino hotel.

    Hmmm...I may be able to do this. It's only about a 5-6 hour drive, but my wife an I have been wanting to go back to Vegas. I'm going to have to talk it over with her and see if we can get the time off together. Sounds like a good plan B! Hey, maybe I'll bring my bottle of Cabo Wabo Tequilla I got from the RR's club to share with you.

    Happy coincidence. I alreayd planned on going. My girlfriend and I already booked our hotel and airfare. We'll be staying at the Excalibur. From the 12th to the 17th.

    Not getting VIP tickets though. We're just going to the Mr.O. prejudging and the Mr. O finals and the Expo. We might drop by the victory party. Meet the Olympians doesn't sound like a good idea to me however; who wants to talk to people who have been on a pre-contest diet for 12-16 weeks and are severely dehydrated? I don't know about you, but that doesn't sound like the friendliest group of people.

    Id much rather meet the Olympians AFTER the show when they can relax and eat anythig they want. From what I hear most are in a very good mood after the show even if they were screwed.

    Yes, it is good to know that you are headed up there. I'm not much for the comp's nor the $$ that it costs to see one. I do enjoy the expo, just for the sake of meeting up with the DS guys (and possibly other retailers that I may frequent) and am hoping that other AM members will be joining us. After all parties post their intentions of going we can get to the "hookin' up plans", whether they be at the expo, DS booth or a locale TBD

    ****, I was really hoping to go to this. I just received the info for my 20 year class reunion for Oct. 15th. Damn...20 years. I just need to make a decision of which to go to. I'd much rather go to Vegas, then spend a night with people I haven't maintained contact with for 20 years, and won't see again until the next reunion.

    Let's get a running log of who is planning on going to this deal. That way we can try to set up a meet at one of the sponsors booths, like Avant or DS.

    As long as things are good for me at the time, I'm in.

    I am disappointed to say that I will be unable to attend.

    I have a lingering personal matter that is finally getting the attention of the appropriate parties. It is proof that it is indeed who you know and what you are willing to pay to have them represent you. I have a preliminary hearing to attend Friday followed by the formal hearing on Monday. I have waited 6 months for this and I just cannot postpone this another minute.

    Enjoy yourselves fully and safely. What happens in Vegas stays in Vegas...unless you post it here.
