Where is the New England "meet up"??

I've seen all kinds of threads on TCS meetups, but no New England ones. Maine? Vermont? Massachusetts? Am I the only one out east?
Just curious

I'm actually western Mass, but the darn state is so small - that's not very far.
Bear with my stupidity please - by south shore you mean towards the cape? is that right?

Cool! That's close to me as well. What part of CT if you don't mind me asking? I'm just wondering because I live in Mass, but work in CT.

Not a stupid question.... I don't go as far down as the cape but yes you are right..i m 20 miles south of Boston.

That's a pretty good haul from where I am, but for Maine Lobster - I'd go anywhere.

I've been to York a few times as well and it is a really nice place! That would be a good location as well.

Sign me up! I'm in eastern Ct, grew up in western ct, and lived for about 10 years in the worcester, MA area. Right now I'm in Coventry, Ct, which isn't too far at all from UCONN-Storrs.

I'm assuming that if this actually happens we could also invite those from NY, and NJ...

I haven't been to Maine in awhile. Love it!

Sure - NY and NJ I would consider in the New England area. The more the merrier! Don't know about the rest of you, but I would love for this to happen. I'd love to meet other "cat nuts" like me.... I think you guys are the only ones who can appreciate the endless photos of furbabies. All my friends and relatives look at me like I"m nuts. I think I have just as many photos of my furry girls as my daughters.

that makes me chuckle...that you live in one state but work in the other.... it would be an 8 hour drive for me (one way) if I worked/lived in different states

Here in New England we have the tiniest states in the country- It could almost be one state as far as the rest of the country is concerned. Of course there are many differences, including NH's lack of taxes, VT's cheese, CT's Hills, RI's water and ME's lobster. I also used to live in Mass and commute to CT.

I can't even imagine. In fact from where I live it's an hour 15 minutes to the "3 corners" - right where Mass/CT/RI all connect. And if I drive an hour in the opposite direction I can hit VT and NH.
I actually never thought of it, but I guess we are pretty lucky that way because of all the differences as someone said.
As for working in CT and living in MA - it's great! Cause CT is one of the most expensive states to live in, but the pay scale is good. The disadvantage is I get hit every year in April by "Taxachusetts" for taxes.

It depends on where you live. When I was looking for a house the ones in some areas of Ct were much cheaper. Rents are cheaper my area than in Mass. Eastern CT is cheaper in general than western Ct. Glastonbury is super expensive however. In MA the opposite seems to be true, western is cheaper eastern is more expensive. Forget it if you live within the 495 belt, or even Worcester, the rents have been out of this world lately!!!

You are right. I never thought of that, but you have a good point. Western and central CT seem to be sky high while western Mass isn't.
