Since we live all over the world (mouser, can you get us that great visual you produced way back when?), I have an idea:
At least for the first
DC convention, we could pick a date, each choose a mountain (or hill, if mountain not available) and go to it. There, we could commune (telepathically?) with others on the site. Maybe, just by coincidence, we would actually meet up with a nearby member. If not, we could each report back what we did and how much we all missed each other.
This might, at least, get us in the mood for the real thing.
