GW location

a2geminiJune 12, 2014

About a year ago, someone put together a list of GWebbers and where we all live.
Silly me, I didn't clip it and tried searching google and GW
Does anyone else remember this post.
Thanks!

Hard core lurker Amanda here (reno completed 2 years ago), from DC metro area. (Waving to a2!)

Edited to generalize my location. After reading that some are hesitant to reveal name and/or town, I googled my first name and town and came up with way too much information!

The abbreviations in titles and threads sometimes have me working to figure out the puzzle. My first thought was GW = Garden Web. But that location word in a Kitchen Forums title had me thinking positioning for a kitchen appliance...? Hmmm "G" could be garbage.. .grout... grate... grill... but then the "W" going with it just didn't form any winning combinations. Finally I clicked on the answer page--to discover you really did mean Garden Web Location. lol

I'm Bev in Ontario, just south of "The D." The MI people will know where that is. ;)

I like the option of checking out selection and prices in the US because sometimes even with CAD taxes and exchange, it's still cheaper. I bought my cabinets at Ikea in Canton rather than drive 3 hours each way to get them in Canada. The exchange wasn't as bad (for me) when I got them and some stuff is just cheaper there.

Hi other Ellen! *waves*
I'm also in touch via email with another other Ellen from GW starting a reno local to me, but she's currently in another state.

I know of at least 2 other GW in the Capital District (Albany area), though I don't recall seeing them here lately (to be fair, I'm not reading as many threads as I used to though).

Should I know who Emily Williams is?

Linelle and Renee--I halfway grew up in SC, and went to UCSC in 1969. Friends of mine own a winery in westside SC. We drive Santa Rosa-ward on forays to Russian River wine country and parts north. Love both areas.

I'm always interested in knowing where people are from and where they end up!

Footballmom I grew up in southern York county in a small township. I went to Dallastown. Parents moved back to Reading Pa before I graduated. I went to UConn (most people heard of UConn now but when I first moved to A2 and would say UConn, you went to school in Canada or Alaska? LOL

Most of you know I am from Ann Arbor which is known as A Squared but never heard any one from A2 ever say I am from A Squared. Gemini for when I was born.

When AAMich joined, most created a handle describing their location.
BTW- I keep meaning to send you an email to see how you are progressing. (We actually live only 2 miles apart)

MGmum-LOL. Great trivia question - what is the closest country south of Detroit.

This started when CEFreeman mentioned she was planning a trip back to Michigan and would live to do a meetup in the area.

Thanks for the great responses

PS I didn't reveal my first name yet as it is unique. Lots is Sue, Anne, Sara etc around but only one of me - I don't even have an internet twin if I use both first and last name to surf.

Oh wow, I haven't seen that one in a while. When I saw it for sale while hitting up listings before the move here it was listed closer to $650-700K.

There was nothing close to this style for sale when I moved here a few months later except for a place claiming to be MCM remodeled as Tuscan. We bought a large 1959 ranch and are rebuilding it. and converting the layout and architecture to MCM room by room. It'll wrap up in a few years when the old roof and rafters come off and the new design goes in. Can't wait...

I also watch all the NE references here; I grew up in a small town 30 miles outside Boston, and lived in the city (the North End - no need for a kitchen since there were too many great restaurants to bother cooking!) for a long time after college. GW seems to command a good number of posters from the suburbs where many of my family and friends now live... I always wonder if I know one of you somehow!

Linelle, yes, I think Aroma Roasters is the name. I'm glad it is still there. We stayed at the historic hotel across the street. They had awesome homemade lemonade mixed with fresh mint for guests.

A2gem, you have been pretty busy these past few months. After weeks of delay with mechanicals during the winter, the addition is starting to look like a real house. drywall has been hung & being mudded. The drywaller is actually working this weekend as he did last weekend. We are living with everything covered in plastic, but the dust has really not been a problem--yet. Sanding will probably start next week. DH and are priming siding this weekend. Whoo-hoo, the KD is coming next week to measure for cabinets. I will finally be able to use the information I have learned from everyone over the past couple of years.

We definitely need a michigan get-together sometime.

Badgergal, we have taken the car ferry SS Badger across the pond twice. I always think of the ferry when I see your screen name. We went last summer over the 4th holiday and went down to Milwaukee and did a few brewery tours.

Texas_Gem: You are not alone! DH and I are both native Texans and Red Raiders, currently living in the DFW area. I have a lot of extended family in the Panhandle. Nothing like the sunsets and dust storms in West Texas! We are Maines Brothers fans, which probably dates us? They are retired now, but still play every couple of years in Lubbock. Maybe you know them?

Howdy from the Dallas / Fort Worth area!

Sixty, small world. We had a second home on the Esopus which we sold. Keeping the building, at least for now. It gives us an excuse to go up and see what's going on.

Wow- amazing number of responses - can't wait to put this spread sheet together and see who lives where!
So glad my GW twin responded from Wisconsin - Badgergal.

Hopefully Breezy, Beekeeper, Beagles will chime in.
I wonder how Rhome is doing these days as well. We almost met in Tacoma.

Glad Fouramblues chimed in - we were doing our kitchens at the same time as well and both used Buckingham.

Also Poohpup who was so inspirational to me. I know I am missing a few others but tired and have a relay race tomorrow.

I get to do the mile swim in a lake (realizing I haven't been open water swimming in at least 10 years of more... and only have 6 swims for the year...) and then a crazy leg - run 1.5 miles, tube down the Cascades (almost white water but not quite), run a bit more, go down a water slide - tag off and wait for our next swimmer and run another 2.5 miles to the finish. - 10 event, 5 person relay!

MLleaving - Love TC - great town in the winter and hope to visit in the summer soon.

aamassther - we will be down your way for a bike trip in September.

Another Howdy from Texas!!! Doreen here in Houston. I've been on GW about 3 yrs after downsizing to a smaller home for retirement. My kitchen was installed 2.5 yrs ago. Phase 2 cabinets, for the family room, coffee bar, and a bedroom/computer area are due for delivery July 17th. I can't wait to have the mess behind me and finally have enough storage to completely unpack.

Ott2- I hear ya on the sunsets and dust. I have a friend from here that lived in Houston for a few years, moved back for a job and she has been miserable, in large part due to the dust storms and her asthma.

But, even she says their truly is nothing quite like our gorgeous cotton candy sunsets. I've never seen another place with such beautiful sunsets and I'm fortunate enough to live in the country with unobstructed views.

I had to look up the Maine's Brothers band, they are before my time and I don't really listen to country music but, still cool to see or hear of a band from the area who made it big.

lynn2006, although from CT, (another Lynn) I spent a year working in Cedar Knowles and living in Randolph. Came back to CT, but I am always the first one to say that NJ gets such a bad rap for no reason. It was beautiful where I worked and lived.

I always tell my kids, if you are willing to be patient, you will always find something you share with another. These posts prove it. Loving this.

Lynn-r-ct,, Where I live is as pretty as Randolph as I am half hour from it and I am near so many highways but my area is very country-like. I have the best of both worlds but unfortunately, the cost of living is very high where I live. I also love Connecticut! I think when people think of NJ, they think of the Newark area where they get off at when flying into NJ.

I love reading about where everyone's location. What a great post!

I've been a long-time lurker since we remodeled our bathroom and I happened across the bathroom forum. We incorporated several ideas from that forum and love our new bathroom. We're now about ready to rip open our walls for a major kitchen remodel :)

I started the spreadsheet but won't be able to finish for a few days. I inputted 50 GWebbers so far!
I think the thread turns into a pumpkin at 150 messages, so wanted to pop in an update.
It will be interesting to see which area has the most folks on line or lurking.

Bonjour, Moebus! I was in Evian last summer, for about 5 minutes LOL! We had some time between trains in Lausanne, so we ferried over to Evian, hopped off to touch ground and grass, and ferried back. It was lovely, hope to stay longer next time :)

I may have a story about Elora, too. During the war, my grandparents' china pattern wasn't being shipped to the States, but it was available in Elora. I think it was Elora, will check with Dad.
