Hi David:
For purposes of Site Preference Selections - which will then be narrowed down to the Top 3 to allow for voting beginning October 21st - please limit your site preference selections to 3 sites.  Thank for your understanding and input.
I read all that.  Some people didn't vote for three, so I went to four.  I was hoping for more input on people on the various areas mentioned... like I did against New Orleans.  I only mention the comfort (ie temp) issue based on attending four AMG's and one non-AMG.   ;)

I agree,  August in  New Orleans is aweful.

1.  Provincetown MA  (very gay, very cool, entirely walkable).
2.  Seattle
3.  San Diego

itd be nice if a hiv related event was also going on in the final area. like a bike ride where we could cheer the bikers along. or a museum exhibit that could stir conversation. i checked some stuff on the internet and unfortunately only one event came up and it was in australia (and i don't know if anyone has voted for australia). i'm sure more things will surface as the date nears.

and not to necessarily attend whatever in it's entirety, but just as an aside. a lot of days with y'all. a portion of a day or so with support/education/revelation/commemoration (outside of our beautiful ceremonies) / etc. not mandatory, nothing with a $$$$$ price tag. just to have an option to be a part of something larger or communal or whatever and then to reconvene with our family here.

just a thought.

Hey D -
Appreciate the idea - we are going to limit this thread to site selection preferences, but when we get into voting for sites - I would like to start a couple of threads - one will be exclusively for voting; one for pros and cons to sites being considered; and one for ideas about ideas of things to do - i.e. activities, other events that we might be able to particpate in, or an event/activity that we might want to do that would "leave our mark"/make our presence known.  These threads should go up right around October 21st.

I am in Seattle this week for business.  This is the first time I have ever visited here and it would be an ideal locale for AMG.  Plenty of activities, sightseeing, cultural, HIV-aware and supportive town, wonderful climate especially in the summer months.  All kinds of mass transit that is extremely accessible.  The city is progressive, quite beautiful, and easy to get to on all major airlines. 

I listed it as one of my choices (and see it on several others.)  It is very worthy of serious consideration.

Washington DC would be awesome!  I've never been there

Seattle is OK but rarely with blue sky.

Other than that, Florida would be good also.

If this covers International also, I've never been to Rome. Lived and traveled most of Europe in the 70's.

Seattle is OK but rarely with blue sky. How about Vancouver  I was there for the worlds fair and it's a great city.

Other than that I would vote for anywhere in Florida.
Hi LForsyth:

I got your previous site preference for New Orleans -- we are limiting each person to selecting a maximum of three site preferences.  Do you want to keep New Orleans as one of your preferences and pick two additional ones from the above sites you mentioned - or do you want to scrap the New Orleans preference and go with 1) DC 2) Vancouver and 3) anywhere in Florida --- Just let me know...

Thanks!

I always wanted to spend a day or two exploring DC.

I guess I'll have to save New Orleans as a trip to Southern Decadence or just a wet dream.

Washington D.C.

I've never been to any of these cities and will welcome getting out of Mesa Arizona (Second seat of the Mormon church, that should say it all!) and out of the Heat/Monsoon!

I give up. Never been to Washington D.C. or New Orleans.

Whatever you all want is fine by me.  I just don't want to spend Christmas Eve getting another stent put into my heart. But I had noone to spend holidays with anyway.

But even with my hearth attack last year I had to work during the break between Christmas and New Years.

Sorry,k but posted a new thread without knowing it.  And I'm a computer geek?

I'm easy. As many can tell you. I always wanted to wander in Washington D.C.

My Father was an Engineer for Las Angeles. Collected National Geographic's (first pictures of nude men I saw). I'll go with the flow but I'm worried that Hippie Lady will not be there.  Hippie Lady, I'll pay your air-fair there with me. Don't worry.

Hello all,
  How goes it?  Lots of great cities being mentioned.  They cover a lot of ground, lots of interesting places. I have never been to the Northwest, or Louisiana.  Has New York City ever come up?  My backyard, so I'm prejudiced, but a great city to visit.  (Yankees game, the Met, Stonewall, Brooklyn Bridge, Staten Is. Ferry, Ground Zero, Grand Central Station, yadda yadda.)   ;D  Maybe our member from Brooklyn will chime in here. Wish I could have made Las Vegas last year, but was in Paris with friends.  Too tired and broke after a fun vacation to turn around in a couple days and head to Vegas.
So in no particular order:

1. Seattle
2. New Orleans
3. New York City

New York City has come up in conversation numerous times over the years with the only question being its affordability.  It would be a great venue for AMG if we could afford it.

Just got back from my first visit to Seattle and it is an impressive, progressive, and pleasant city.

New york is only a few hours from DC. I still have one city left to vote for and i could go either way : )

A few hours by plane maybe, but they're not very close by any other means of transportation. From where I live, NYC is about a 5 hour drive, and DC is about a 14 hour drive. Pretty big difference.

My three votes are, in order of preference:

1. NYC
2. Philadelphia
3. Washington, D.C.
01/09/09- diagnosed HIV+
01/16/09   CD4-425    22%  VL- 32,415
11/09- started Reyetaz/Norvir/Truvada
03/10- stopped R/N/T
10/18/11   CD4- 328   20%  VL- 84,000
10/25/11   CD4- 386   22%
10/28/11- start Truvada/Reyetaz/Norvir
12/30/11  CD4- 523  29%
03/08/12  CD4- 503  31%  VL 57
07/02/12  CD4- 897  43%
08/31/12  CD4- 745  39%
12/27/12  CD4- 884  40%
03/28/13  CD4- 819  39%
07/19/13  CD4- 739  40%
10/17/13  CD4- 535  36%
01/16/14  CD4- 743  43%

02/14- switched from R/N/T to Tivicay/Epzicom because of CKD 3 suspected from tenofovir.

03/14- switched back to R/N/T due to severe nausea and inability to eat on T/E.
 
04/01/14 CD4- 898  42%   VL-

I think he meant that if AMG is held in Washington one can go visit NYC -- which is true if you consider taking the high speed Acela train which takes 2 hours 45 minutes.  At least that's how I read it.

Santa Fe is my pick

Beautiful and less expensive before Memorial Day and after Labor Day. Also, I lived there for many years and I could actually attend as I have many friends there with an extra bed  !

I'm not here (the forums) much but I do check in  :D

Santa Fe would be good. I was with Ice Follies of 1970 in New York City. It was so damned intimidating and I never got to enjoy it like I got to enjoy Europe the next year, even behind the Iron Curtain. Ice Follies was Homaphobic and any skater caught being gay or seen leaving a gay bar was instantly dismissed.

Still leaning towards Washington D.C. and New Orleans. Just the hoar in me.

Maybe L.A. would be OK. Did I mention that my Dad's big project was Marina Del Rey.

But I'd rather go to anywhere else in the U.S.

OK, for personal reasons New York and I want to go to the Gay district!!!!

Hi L:
While your participation is definitely appreciated, this thread is supposed to be limited to posting only your top 3 site preferences for AMG.  It is being limited and focused this way to 1) ensure fairness and 2) to make it easier to tally the site preferences and be able to put the top three to a vote.  To date, you have put numerous (much more than 3) site preferences and have went back and forth on which site(s) you prefer - which is going to make it more difficult to tally the overall consensus of all those who have posted here and ensure fairness.

Please use the other thread titled "2011 AMG Ideas" to put any comments, etc.  Thanks for your understanding and your participation.

In addition to Paris (France), I'd like to get out my other two votes for:

Santa Fe
NYC

Have to take advantage of hassle-free pozzie flights to US. Finally.
