MOAB 2019

Post by marauder » Wed Feb 27, 2019 4:59 pm

Hi everyone, as you know I want to plan one final massive battle, worthy of the MOAB name, before I leave for Kuwait June 1st. Let's do this right. I am trying to reach out to everyone and plan something special.

The best dates for me are either next weekend or probably May, but I will talk to Tiffany and edit this sentence tomorrow with specifics.

Please post with your availability. I want to get everyone involved. Let's connect with some old friends and possibly meet some new friends in the process.

I should be graduating May 25 or 26. So sometime the week of the 27th would be the only time I can do it it before June.

As discussed over text, March 9 & 16 are booked for Rob and I. Not sure about after, but if he's available, we could both run a trip to NC and join Scott along the way, which could potentially save me an awful drive lol. (NC to MI is not something I want to do lol.)

Late March and anytime in May work best for me. I know you have plans in April, and it's also Humans vs. Zombies season in Ohio, though I'm not sure which events I'm going to yet. Most likely I'll be playing on April 12 and 19.

That sounds like so much fun. I can never seem to find anything like that around here. When I get back from Kuwait I want to start doing more things like that with everyone or maybe taking a trip to the beach or beach house together (had talked to Brandon about that yesterday).

Depending on when I leave for Texas for predeployment training that may work. Kind of ironic that you are going from UT to the east coast and I am going from UT to Fort Hood, which is only an hour away from UT. Congratulations on getting your PHD btw. It's probably too early, but do you have any idea of where you are going to be applying for jobs?

Most of March should be okay, although the Myrtle Beach trip will most likely be moved to next weekend (9th-10th) because the weather isn't so great this coming weekend. You're still welcome to join us. I'm pretty sure it's a short drive for you.

As mentioned, April is looking pretty busy at the moment. May is unknown as of now; I'll probably have a few busy weekends, but nothing important enough to be already planned now.

What kind of war do you have in mind? i.e. what locations and game types? Something totally insane and different would be awesome. We should get like 20 people too.

How long will you be in Kuwait for?

I'm thinking of having the opportunity to camp in the woods and fight through the night for people who want that.

9 months, but I will be in Texas and Georgia for 2 months prior and then I will have a few weeks of demobilization after I return. So I will be gone almost a year.

Thanks. I won't be applying to any jobs until after I graduate. I'll be taking at least 3 months off then and will have plenty of time to apply to jobs. I'm open to suggestions on jobs, places to live, etc., if you have any.

I think that's a smart decision. I received a preliminary offer before I graduated and then they rescinded it right after I graduated. I freaked out and then started applying everywhere and got depressed. In hind sight you have to trust yourself and not settle.

Are you interested more in research or application? I know that the Research Triangle Park is a huge research node here with lots of jobs. It's fairly affordable too.

Oh congrats @SSCBen that's a huge accomplishment!

I can't do anything in all of March, and nothing in April before the 15th. The rest of April and May are open so far.

I've got something this weekend and then June 1st, otherwise I am free any weekend. Would likely need to take Friday off though, so two weeks notice would be good.

Looks like late May seems to be the best for the most people so far. I'd like to know sooner than later since I'm trying to plan a big game in May as well but want to do so as far in advance as possible so we can gather interest.
