Thread: September Meet and Greet for the Great Lakes Pod

  1. #1

    September Meet and Greet for the Great Lakes Pod

    Hello everyone! Allow me to open this thread with a little introduction. My name is Ligeia and I知 a new mer to the community and to the mermaiding world. I live down in the southern Ohio area near Wheelersburg and you can usually find me in nearby lakes! A handful of us on a separate thread thought it would be nifty to have a meet-up in September and stretch our tails out! I値l be naming a few in this first post but feel free to jump right on in - everyone is welcome.

    Intro aside, the following mers have already expressed an interest in the get together so I値l mostly be using their data in my thoughts on where we should hold the meet up. (Those mers being: iamonlyme@me.com / Mermaid Caspiana / KateyMermaid /TheAutisticMermaid respectively).

    Now TheAutisticMermaid is usually swimming around Canadian waters but she痴 traveling a bit south in September for a visit! So we値l be choosing a date around her arrival so she can jump in on the fun.

    The mers locations are (roughly) as follows:
    *Ligeia - Wheelersburg, OH
    *Mermaid Caspiana - Canton, OH
    *KateyMermaid - Columbus, OH
    *TheAutisticMermaid - Athens, OH (for a bit!)
    *iamonlyme@me.com - Fort Wayne, IN

    There is also a Cincinnati mer who may be joining in as well. Not sure yet on her, though. We may also have other additions which would bring about change (such as if we had someone from WV coming in). As a note - these are just general times from (ex.) 鼎incinnati, OH to 鼎olumbus, OH. The following seems to be the best result in terms of drive-times, swim spots, etc.

    Right now, Columbus seems to be the most economical. In terms of drive-times, this option gives several mers shorter trips. For myself and iamonlyme, we would be looking at a three hour drive easy. Caspiana would be looking at a little over a two hour drive. Meanwhile those in Athens and Cincinnati would have about an hour - almost two hour - drive. Columbus seems to be the closet medium I致e found so far in terms of equal drive times - save, of course, Katey, as she lives in the area. (There is also Chillicothe as an option and a great alternative for many mers but I知 not familiar with an locations nearby. Definitely need to consider this, though!)

    Mers near the northern area may be able to help pinpoint good swim spots. Feel free to post any ideas you can come up with, lovely spots to swim in...anything you can think of! We've got awhile to hash this out so take your time!

    Twilight darkens, yet there in the shade,
    Lies a glimmering shadow, the wild mermaid;

    As night draws ever closer, there's a choice to be made--
    Will you stay as you are, or be delivered to the waves?

    Whisper - Awwwwwe! You're more than welcome to come join! Though it may be a bit of a drive...I'm really close down to the border (sort of...ish.) So depending on where you're at, maybe a separate meet up is in order! The Great Lakes Pod is sooooo spread out! It would be wonderful to meet everyone - or even just a few!

    You beat me to it. Haha
    But you probably did it better than I would've. lol

    I'll have a little look, as I've looked for other meet-up attempts, for some nice spots. I really hope we can do this!
    Also, maybe we can try to aim at a weekend, because I'll be in school in September. <3

    This is a fantastic idea! Right now I'm leaning towards the Twin Quarries in Circleville but I wanted to ask Mermaid Katey about it. (When I get a chance...things have been insanely busy for me lately!) Lake Logan is nearby the Hocking Hills State Park if I'm not mistaken? Or am I thinking of something completely else?

    I haven't made it (I've been too busy). It doesn't look as if Mermaid Tami has had the chance either. If you want to make it then go for it!

    Also...TheAutisticMermaid...you get here on September 14th, right? How long will you be staying here? Mermaid Caspiana will be in school so a weekend would be best for her. So I was thinking September 17th may be a good idea. I'd like to include as many people as possible!

    I know the Hocking Hills area takes up several different attractions (including Old Man's Cave, Lake Hope and so on). But they're pretty spread apart. I've never been out to that particular lake but, from what I'm seeing, it looks pretty! Was that the lake you were meaning or somewhere else within the area?

    Oh!! That is fantastic! So we have time. It seems like the 17th may be the best time to do it!

    I used to visit Old Man's Cave frequently. It is gorgeous out there during the summer and after a fresh rain! I think that would be fun! Maybe we could have a shoot earlier in the day (for those who wanted one) and then swimming shortly after. Or something like that. I'm definitely open to ideas!

    OMG that location is gorgeous and like a fantasy! We can turn it into a mermaid lagoon for the shoot! So fantastic! I am also a photographer and would love to grab some shots as well before I get into my tail.
