Why so many years between reunions?

Why is it that there are so many years between our family reunions? Is it because of the distance? The cost?
Dianne’s family has a family reunion every year in Oklahoma. It’s not too fancy, but it’s nice. It’s at a state park, near a big lake, and it’s cheap!

I’ll bet there is a nice lake or state park in a central point between Texas, Georgia, Ohio and Maryland.
…That is, of course, if you want to see your family more often.

  1. Disney was far enough that we had to fly and rent a car. The alternative would not have allowed us to get to spend as much time at Disney because we would have been on the road. Disney itself is expensive.

    The second major factor is that someone has to organize it. The Georgians took the lead on Disney including finding those wonderful houses for use to stay. Unless someone wants to step up to the plate and organize another one – it’s not going to happen.

    So my advice on the next one would be to go to somewhere more central: Kentucky, Tennessee, Louisianna; and that John organize it.

    1. So, in other words, I need to organize the next one and set the standard for future reunions.
      …Once in a while, we can do ‘bigger’ reunions at more $$ destinations, but have a standard, more economical, reunion every couple of years or so…
