I know Bill is a busy guy with movies and TV shows and horses and sci-if conventions.
So I'll make it easy; I'll get myself to wherever Bill wants to meet up for beer*. I'm my own boss so within reason and with a little time for planning, I can give myself a couple of days off. Bill, just tell me where.
I'll even bring the beer.
* Disclaimer: it must be on planet Earth. I can't afford space travel.
