I was just daydreaming and I thought "Wouldn't it be cool if a bunch of us got together to go on a field trip somewhere?" Perhaps this is another one of my whacked ideas (OK, I know it is), but is there any interest in this? Just a few people that would like to perhaps go on an adventures outside of Davis? Or in Davis? Tour a company? See some art? Attend an event? Perhaps we're all introverts and the only thing we have in common is sitting alone editing the wiki. —SteveDavison

2005-12-22 15:19:29   What's happening with this, steve? —ArlenAbraham

2005-12-23 11:10:49   Glad you asked, Arlen! Absolutely nothing. The truth is we really are all anti-social people who just sit at our computers writing oblique insults about each other. Sometimes I wonder what it would be like to be a normal person... —SteveDavison

  • "The only normal people are the one's you don't know very well." -Alfred Adler...trips should very fun, but a topic of interest or hobby may make it easier to plan and get people out.

2005-12-23 11:29:11   Nope, I'm up for it. —AndrewBanta

2005-12-23 15:41:49   when? where? who's driving? —CindySperry

2005-12-23 15:53:05   I think a Wikitrip that would make sense would be a Napa adventure. Of course that might exclude some under-21-year olds. But it's a thought. —JaimeRaba

2005-12-24 01:49:14   Why are people on the wiki anti-social. The wiki events board is a good promotion tool. i would think frequent users of the wiki would be someone more likely to show up to an event listed on the events board. I'm not saying a field trip isn't a fun idea I'm just saying the wiki seems to be watering down events by having them just too damn often. —RobRoy

2006-02-26 14:52:18   i'm up, or down, whichever —MichelleAccurso

2006-02-26 15:21:11   I'd be down for a Jelly Belly tour or similar. Mini Golf, Bowling adventure at the MU would also not leave the under 21 crowd out. —TarZxf

Candy is always good. I know yolobus goes to Vacaville, but I don't know if it goes near the factory. -NickSchmalenberger

  • We could get a car pool going, I bet AndrewBanta would drive, and between he and I that's ten people, which is about the size of your average BBQ attendees. -MichelleAccurso

2006-03-09 20:10:44   I've not read all these comments, but I'd like to do it. I've fallen away from the wiki for a while now, and I think that it'd be cool to get back in touch with everything. —JohnDudek

2006-03-14 01:19:09   We could go to... Ikea! —SteveDavison

  • Sounds good to me, I need a desk lamp. For extra adventure, maybe we could take public transit, or ride bikes. -NickSchmalenberger

2006-03-14 13:31:08   i'm all for ikea —MichelleAccurso

2006-03-14 13:39:18   If you go to Ikea, Hitler wins. —BrentLaabs

2006-03-16 20:05:44   Hmmm. I could use a desk lamp too. BTW, I have a full-size pickup truck if anyone wants to bring back anything that won't fit in their dog-sled. —ErikAnderson

  • I'll sell you my lamp or a cool green light pod. —MarieHuynh
    • Serendipitously enough, I found a desk lamp in my own garage, left behind by the previous tenant. Maybe you can sell yours to Nick?

2006-03-16 21:56:56   I don't think I've ever been to that burger king. And classes start on wed. Why not tuesday? —MarieHuynh

  • Classes are lame, that's why. —TarZxf

2006-03-23 16:58:11   I'd come, but I have to teach a class on Wednesday at noon so I'm pretty much excluded from this venture. —BrentLaabs

2006-03-23 18:47:39   would tuesday work for everyone? i work til about noon that day but could make it —MichelleAccurso

  • I can't do Tuesday. I have a class at 1:00 at Sacramento City College on Tuesday, but I could do Monday, Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday. -NickSchmalenberger

2006-03-23 23:12:28   I will like to go, but can we go on Tuesday because class start on Wednesday —SimonFung

  • What about Monday?
    • monday is good, i work that morning so i'll be available after noonish —MichelleAccurso
      • Okay, what time? What happens to lunch at ikea? Does it become linner? -NickSchmalenberger

2006-03-24 21:58:49   Monday just about any time is pretty good for me. I'll probably come along. —BrentLaabs

2006-03-25 23:09:33   Monday is better for me too; Wed has conflicts plus UCD is in session. —SteveDavison

2006-03-26 18:39:25   Both Monday and Wednesday are fine for me, but it seemed like a lot more people could do it on Monday, so I say do it Monday. —NickSchmalenberger

2006-03-26 18:43:09   i work on monday, so if we could do it sometime after or at one, i'd appreciate it —MichelleAccurso

2006-03-26 21:39:47   Yes, I support this afternoon plan as well, mainly because I've been getting to sleep pretty late during spring break. —BrentLaabs

2006-03-27 15:17:10   crap, I slept through everything —NickSchmalenberger

  • and you don't have an alarm clock? —MichelleAccurso
    • I do. I set it for 11 am and when I woke up it was 3 pm. I think it is brain-damaged from having been beaten up on too many times. Really, I just need to get a normal sleep schedule instead of staying up late reading all the time. So, how did it go? -NickSchmalenberger
      • oye, that sucks. it was fun, Brent Neal Erik and myself were there. we bought stuff, yay.

2006-03-27 19:37:55   Moving a date forward a day before an event happens is an exceedingly bad idea. I was expecting Wednesday. Drat! —SteveDavison

2006-03-27 19:39:45   If you plan an event in the future SET THE DATE WELL IN ADVANCE AND **NEVER MOVE A DATE BACKWARDS**. —SteveDavison

  • I agree. But take heart — we'll get better at this with more practice. ;-) —ErikAnderson

2006-03-27 20:12:00   oh i think many of us would like to go wednesday again. erik is measuring and coming back. anyone up for wednesday? i know andrewbanta can make it and i would love to go —MichelleAccurso

  • Hopefully it will stop RAINING on Wednesday, and that shelf thingy I want will still be in the store. (It will fit) —E
  • Follow up: the shelf thingy was GONE! If you snooze you loose, I guess. :-(

2006-03-28 17:14:28   This is a good idea... can't go tho. :) —TusharRawat

2009-06-15 15:10:00   So I really like this page Yogurtagogo, and how they have used the wiki. Is anybody interested in going here maybe in a week or two? —NickSchmalenberger
