No. We have most of the TTPG big wigs here in AZ so I'm sure that's where we will be visiting and my place would not be nearly as impressive as what we will probably see there in terms of specimens and enclosures.

I am extremely self conscious about my current enclosures and set-ups since I can only do so much to the property (we're renting), however, next year we hope to be in our own place and if the conference is still in AZ I might propose a TFO BBQ or something if there would be any interest.

What I recall of your enclosures, I know I would like to see them as you used some interesting plants (as my bad memory recalls). I hope that folks who go take lots of pictures of these places to share with us. I for one am very interested in what plants folks from different places use.

To be honest, the talks don't "grab" me and make me want to attend, but seeing those enclosures/yards sure does.

Not sure. You'd have to run that by one of the Directors at TTPG.

Thanks Jaizei, I knew I had done it once or twice before, but couldn't remember. It looks like it is in optional feature for some users though.

I stay at local cheapie hotels. Just be aware that there are some shady people in the cheaper parts of town. I always have at least two protection dogs and other self defense measures in place when I'm there, so I don't worry about it. Might be worth the price of the room to just stay at the Marriot for some people. Its nice there and nothing to worry about.


That's what I think everytime I drive up to I-5, and have a short stayover in Santa Clarita, sorty shady place people all around. I won't even roll down my windows.

Well last year I stayed about a 15 minute walk away, and saw a few tweakers and such, but no actualy dangerous people. Many very drunk people, but they were all in pairs coming out of bars and the like. This year I'm being way more risky and staying at the Knight's Inn, and my whole Tuedsay through Friday is less than one night at the Marriot. If your there too I'd be happy to escort you back and forth. LOL.

Looking forward to a turtle meeting 99.9% rectal oriface free, Russ has sewn togther a great organization, out of the many that are around TTPG is real and interesting. Well only interesting because GrandpaTurtle, Neal, Tom, and that cute blond woman with redfoots will be there, amoung others. LOLOLOLOL
