I just got the invite last week from the Reunion committee at my alma mater (high school) for my ten year reunion. I seriously considered going for about a second and then bagged the idea. My reasons for not going: 1. I can't think of a single soul I really would like to see that I don't already keep in touch with. 2. My high school/hometown is practically in the middle of nowhere. It is 2-2.5 hours away from the nearest real (or semi-real) airport. I suppose I could fly into the Santa Fe Airport, but that would cost an arm and a leg and I've never known anyone who's actually flown there. Even so, it's still 45-60 minutes away from there. 3. The flight to Albuquerque is long and expensive. The flight will take between 4-6 hours plus the cost of travel time getting to the airport and waiting before take-off. So... easily 8 hours at least of just aiport/flying time. Factor in the drive mentioned in #2, it would be like a long 10-11 hour work day. Not to mention that it's really hard finding decent deals to get there. I guess no one likes to fly there or something.... 4. The hubby will be smack dab in the middle of studying for the Bar Exam, and there is no way I'd go to this thing by myself. 5. They are charging $50 per person for the reunion. This includes a dinner at a local restaurant (remember.... small town in the middle of nowhere so the restaurants aren't exactly high class) and a BBQ the next day. I suppose that could be a reasonable price considering rental fees and such, but I could think of a better way to spend $100. 6. The invitation the Reunion committee sent out included combinations of colors about as bad as the ones used on the websites in this thread. 7. Due to the lack of moisture the region has received this year, a severe fire danger warning is already in affect for that area. I don't want to go during peak fire season and then get surrounded in flames only to be left with one main road with which to exit down the mountain (there is a back road, but that would most likely take into the fire, were there to be one). I could see it happening at the outdoor BBQ after the drunk people start to get a little crazy. Okay, maybe that is a LITTLE far-fetched, but it's still a valid concern since there was a mass exodus of the town (akin to the slow, grueling exodus out of Houston during the Hurricane) a few years ago when a huge forest fire reached the town limits and ended up destroying about 200 homes. With that long-winded explanation said... I was just wondering how many of the not-so-young-anymore-timers went to their 10 year reunion or plan to go to their reunion. If you didn't/don't want to go, why not?
