Consider weather, holidays, we need time to organize Match up with 5/8/11 (or 8/5/11 as Americans write it, or 2011.08.05 :P ) August 5th 2011? Or choose our own date?

-i was under the impression the EU one was pre-uni for the students. It would be nice to match up, but not necessary.

Consider other events around that time

-National Rainbow gathering (likely Washington), July 1-7

-Burning Man- End of August/early September

-University students go back to school end of August/ early September

Assume it starts on a Friday? Any reason not to? -Any reason TO? One reason to start on a Friday is for people with standard-schedule jobs - both prospective hitchers (like Rob from 2010 who got his first hitchhiking experience between Denver and Boulder) and locals who want to check it out.
