The end of April, beginning of May is often beautiful here, but not so good for those of the hobbit posse on academic calendars.
So I was thinking, how about the first weekend in June (6/3-6/6)? Is everyone's semester done then?
The weather is often still temperate here the beginning of June and roses are out, and it's usually quite lovely--though sometimes it can be stinky hot. This would be the week after the Memorial Day weekend. I figured air fares and airport congestion would be worse on Memorial Day weekend, but would be just as happy to have it then, if it were better for people, but I suspect that would be cutting it close for those finishing out semesters.
Or would you not be available until autumn?
What say you? Who is up for it?
