OMG, this one might even be doable for me! Train trip from NYC, no problem.... or maybe carpool? (I don't drive, but would definitely chip in for gas, tolls, etc.)

(Melissa? Greg? You in on this one?)

I am glad there is a date to look forward too. Should be a great time of year for sightseeing as well. I think the train is only 3 hours from Penn Station NYC so I am definitely coming!!!

11 months to go...

Greg,

AMS meeting is in Pittsburgh next year, and Philadelphia the following year. This will be my first. I am double excited because I grew up about an hour from Pittsburgh and I've worked a bit with Tim Pearce (Asst. Curator, Carnegie Museum Natural History, Malacology dept.), who is hosting the conference. Also, I hear there is to be a cephalopod seminar this year. Hope to see you there!

That is awesome! I love Pittsburgh. It has a great little brewery there that I always go to and I have some family that live in Beaver Falls. Going to be a fun 2011 for conferences!

Church Brew Works is a heavenly place! I love it. Post AMS drinks at the Brew Works would be a fantastic idea...
