    I'm happy that "someone" exist in this case

    Often in life you think "someone" should do "this or that or something" (instert something you wish to be done but don't want to/can't do yourself)

    But our captain stepped up last time and seems to do the same next time, cheers!

    :cheers:

    This is why he's CAPTAIN Metal. Taking charge and making stuff happen!

    Just want to say thanks to Captain Metal for organizing this thing. Glad to see someone step up and do more than just talk! You better believe I will be at the pre-party. :heavydrink: :party: :beerhorns:

    Wow, I thought the pre-party would just be a gathering at a random pub or something getting drunk, but this sounds like it's going to be fantastic! :cheers:

    It was an awesome event. There were tons of people there for it. Lots of bands, lots of beer and lots of fun times. It's when all us crazy forum folk actually got to meet each other in person for the first time. Surprisingly, everyone was exactly as I expected them to be :lol:

    The pre-party was almost my favorite night of the whole trip (a huge thanks again to Donn for organizing it!) because I finally got to meet so many of the people I had been chatting with on the forum for so long - FUN!! Lot of hugs and pictures....here's a few....

    Donn (Captain Metal) looking very serious :P standing between me and (Australia) Rachael - Evican.

    That will be a ways away from all the fun... Most people are in South Beach or Holiday Inn In the Port.


    Hope it's not a total sh#$hole!

    Now one thing I wouldn't mind looking into. Finding hotels by the Transit lounge and perhaps working out a group discount with them? Get to hang out with everyone, perhaps save some money - completely take over a hotel. I'm sure they could get some group rates going. Depending how good the corporate discounts are I could even create and incorporate a shell corporation in order to obtain a discount for a large group of us.

    What say you guys, worth pursuing? Probably save money on cabs and would be fun taking over a hotel together :viking:

    Sounds good! Hotels are the last on my shopping list but keep us up to date on this. Sounds like a good plan if you get enough people interested.

    More beer money = more awesome!

    Would be a cool idea. Given Miami's already a huge tourist spot and it's high cruise season I doubt we'd be able to pull something off but it's worth a shot. Wasn't the neighborhood around the Transit Lounge (and all of downtown Miami for that matter) kinda shitty? It was dark and I was drunk and I'm having trouble remembering. :trashdrink:

    :lol: Okay well I'll get into research on that front and perhaps contact some of the hotels to check on rates that they could offer and something that could work well and be accommodating location wise. Will keep you all posted on what I find out and see if I can wrangle some options.

    omg! haha!! I stayed there for about 5 weeks and pretty much had a nightmare trip! I was only 19 and went by myself and I was in a hurricane, had a guy pull a knife on me, had a crazy lady steal my passport.... I actually never thought I'd go back haha!

    Geesh, I would never go anywhere near the continent that happened to me in. :shock: :mrgreen: :shock:

    My fried is a police officer and stationed down there years ago. It's not all the glitz and glamour like you see on TV, it's basically a warzone in many ways. When he had to go to the specific jail/hospital there, he would put on a biohazard suit, it was that bad. :lol: :lol: :lol:

    It took 40 bands to get me back! :)

    Haha.. I have a funny memory of being locked in a Burger King during the hurricane. Those coloured balls in the children's playground were flying around the windows and they wouldn't let anyone out cos the water was knee-deep. And on the radio they played "Down Under" and I was bawling my eyes out and singing out loud like a crazy person... Id been up for a long time haha.

    Yeah Miami was pretty shitty. I felt much safer walking around parts of South Beach as all of downtown looked pretty bad. I know that some of the cities surrounding Miami are some of the worst in the country.

    I'd never go to Florida if it wasn't for this cruise and for Disneyworld when I was a kid. America's Wang indeed.

    Cool! Thanks for doing all the leg work. I'm gonna sit back and drink some beer and wait for some updates ;) This is probably indicative of what our life in Calgary would be like should I get up there :headbanger:

    Omg, how traumatising!

    I think I might start going back to body combat and work on my punches and kicks, Miami is starting to sound like a pretty scary place.

    well i hear ya guys about scary miami stuff... i have to say... my girlfriend and me where there in 2009 our hotel was located squarely downtown... the shopkeepers didnt speak englisht gangbangers on every corner drunks on the metro mover.... and still i dare say... it will always be as bad as you make it... we enoyed ourselves in miami like no place before... people where nice no robberies and sure as hell no hurricanes...

    of course walking back to the hotel could be a bit strange (being escorted by a police car) but overall not the worst place i have been... (back alleys of istanbul and back alleys in ankara being more scary:P) but yeah if ya scare easily then yeah its a scary shitty...
