Change your name

There's a box to change your nickname. It's just above the text entry window in the chat box. Personalize your Gabber nickname to your preference. Family type chat and nicknames only please.


Chat with us

We usually chat just after posting a new newsletter. Come chat with us about the newsletter or anything else (family appropriate) that you may like to chat about. We've met many nice people online, and even made some friends.


Meet with us

We like to meet people during the festivals in our area. We wear our own homemade nametags (maybe on our tech-type t-shirts :-) and we specify a meeting area in a public place (usually near a playground for the kids). There's usually festival food for sale, or join our potluck, or bring your own picnic basket. Don't forget your lawn chairs, sheets, blankets, frisbees, etc. *Check food specifications for each meeting!

*GREET EACH OTHER WITH YOUR ONLINE NICK-NAME, and then introduce yourself with your first name and identify your family and friends that are with you. Then meet the rest of us!




Directions and map-links are below


Someone will meet you 'on the hour' at our meeting place and then will introduce you to the rest of us - IF we are there!

*We usually meet at playgrounds since they are next to the festivities.

Want to meet in public? Perhaps there's a festival or some other gathering that's closeby (usually in IN or MI or OH) where we could meet. Also, we like to meet when we're camping, and especially when we can dine out, and we'll never turn down a grilled burger or brat. :D
