Well I was thinking on the way to school... why don't we have like a huge YWO gathering? Like during the summer. It doesn't have to be any time soon but just a thought. I know it might not work out cause everyone is all over the place. But if Youtube can do it so can we! Wouldn't it be great to meet everyone IRL. I just really wanna meet someone from like the UK it'd be like a pen pal kinda thing...

I'd love to, but it'd be so difficult, not only to get people here with expenses and stuff, but with parental issues too. Not all of us are over 17 or 18. Most of us are 16 and younger, so it'd be hard for the parents to think it all right for their kid to meet people they don't even know.
Though I suppose they could bring their parents too, but mine wouldn't go for it. They'd be bored. -.-

It would be fun though, and I'm all for it. I'll be in college next year anyways. -shrugs-

I get to meet Jessica on Wednesday.



All you other mother fuckers can go screw yourselves.
Hehe.

But seriously, the money it would take to orchestrate this kind of thing would be...well...a lot.

And we don't got any sponsors so....

I feel like this idea has been brought up before and discarded due to logistics.

But if we could manage, not one big gathering, but a bunch of more localized ones...that could potentially work. I know there are more YWO people somewhere around where I live than just me and Carr. So, while we're not getting people across the Atlantic here, an hour's drive or so? wouldn't be that difficult.

I don't think anyone lives too near me. This would be sooo awesome if it could work, but my parents wouldn't like it, and I wouldn't be able to go by myself for about two years. I don't even think my parents would be okay with me meeting people an hour away either. I mean, they usually let me do whatever I want and make my own decisions, but they might have a problem with this.
