Thanks for the advice/confidence boost!
I kept it more at "Maybe we can try another time some other day" which I realize is a bit vague but my thinking was that I didn't want to press it too hard.
I fully intend to try and keep up the exchange, but obviously waiting a bit to ask again. I guess it's that part now that I'm not quite sure how to approach. So I have to ask again, any words of wisdom?
