This is cool!
I mentioned a while back that my 20th high school reunion is coming up this year. Well plans have progressed and now a date has been set - August 3rd through August 5th at the Hard Rock Hotel in Hollywood, Florida. This is only a few miles from where I live.
The best part about all this, is that I was finally able to locate my best friend from high school that I lost track of for the last 20 years! (Hi Mike!) I'd been trying to locate him online for years without any luck. He posted a message on the Yahoo Groups group for our reunion and it had his email address. I emailed him back and sent along my instant messenger contact info, and we are chatting online right now! We are even swapping 'baby photos' (pictures of our pets).
It was actually a post of his on Classmates.com that reminded me that our 20 year reunion was coming up a few months back. The problem is that I really hate Classmates.com. They let you sign up for free, but if you want to do anything on there they make you pay! I'm not about to pay for this site. Finally, I was able to get at least enough information through the site for free that I was contacted directly about the reunion. This eventually led to getting back in touch with Mike. Hopefully we can keep in touch from now on.
