Complete.

Sarrathefletcher, they've apparently changed the first question to include "Outside the Continental US, willing to travel" in response to your post.  Please reconsider!

Actually the 'outside the US willing to travel' was always there And that is where our friends to the north have been placing themselves in the survey.  my recommendation to someone asking where Ohio fell in the regions was to select the region you'd most be willing to travel to...same with Texas where half the state considers itself SW and the other The South and outsides think it should be it's own country all together... being a Texas native i can almost agree

As the individuals who have volunteered to facilitate the convergence are in LA, Miami, Seattle, and NY it doesn't matter where it ends up three of us will be making quite a haul to get to it. FYI a little inside scoop from the IPC... Alaskans need to be talking to the Canadians since Canada wants to qualify for an IPC and needs to hold a national convergence to qualify.

Thank you L.London for reminding me... Ive been meaning to post this to your listserve as well. just coming down off the backside of a 70hour workweek and been doing this in my 'spare' time LOL

STANDINGS AS OF TODAY IN NATIONAL SURVEY

After weighting responses to reflect distance people are willing to travel, the information gathered thus far indicates 46.5% would go to the Northeast and 47% would go to central California.

Also emerging from these surveys were two viable offers of Amherst, MA or Sacramento, CA... sooooooo... If you feel strongly for or against either of these eventualities please a) make sure you've filled out a survey and b) pass on the link to your respective networks. Survey is open till Nov 5th. Thanks again for your participation!

Upper Midwest & Central planes 16%

Northwest Coast & Inland / BC 15%

Southern Cal / Southwest drylands 19%
