Thanks for the replies everyone, keep them coming! Couple things:
1) Sorry for the type-o in the title...I posted from work and was distracted.
2) @ Braewe: Oh my, YES! Meeting up with our gaming group is one of my top two things*, and we're looking forward to our gathering. I can't believe it's been over a decade! I'm very much looking forward to seeing how everyone's doing.
3) @ Qwaserity: I completely agree with you on BOTH counts. NOT being PC is a welcome relief in a time where there seems to be so much of it. But I don't want to derail the thread. You guys have a blast! HA! Also, I agree with your sentiment of doing stuff you can't do at home. I assumed that most replies would be about meeting with friends or spending time with family, which is why I asked for besides that. In part, I wanted to hear about people's highlights and maybe it would give me ideas of what to look into that I may be missing out on.
@ Reeddotto & Rutherfordr: I've never tried a LARP. I'm a bit shy when it comes to acting. Perhaps I should make an effort to learn more about these events and maybe observe one to see if it's something for me. I wish you both an amazing time at your LARP's!
* The other being getting to geek out with my daughter. We enjoy getting immersed in Gen Con, and for me, it will be 3 quality days with her. (We leave very early Sunday). Again, why I mentioned in the OP besides friends/family.
Anyway, time's getting close. Better start packing, ha! If any others have a moment to share, I'd love to read the replies.
