If I made a last minute decision to go, does anyone need a room mate or a car mate? Or at least a hotel name.

Most kiters stay at the Thunderbird Inn.
It'll be super great to fly with you there. Unfortunately, there's no extra space in my room, and I don't have a car.

No worries. I will check to see how much it is today.
I sure would like to go. Be nice to spend a couple days in the sun flying.

So far all the close hotels are in the $400 range for three nights. I am going to check a little further out. It is my fault for waiting so long.

Looks like my time in Florida will be extended a bit. Work wants me to go to a meeting in Orlando on the following Thursday. When I told my manager that I was going to be in the Tampa area on the weekend, he said he needed someone to do a site-walk for a customer on Tuesday as well, and that's in St. Pete. So I'll be staying to work in FL on Tues-Thurs.

Be sure that when you tell your wife you do it with the proper amount of frustration and irritation at having to extend your stay.

:jester:

Yeah, I have a fair amount of practice at finding the "proper" amount. Not too over the top . . . .

Oh, and, good for you Jeff! Hope you get to fly a bunch while you are there . . . .

Well, once the fest is done, No more time for flying. Honestly, I'd rather just be home.

Sorry to hear that. Oh well, at least your employer is covering some of your travel expenses (I hope).

Um . . . . I didn't take any . . . .

It was great to see everyone again at TI again. I only flew for an hour or two on Saturday as I got there very late. Sunday I got to TI about noon, and flew a bit (including a couple 6-person 180Go! routines with a couple guest flyers from Rev Ryders) . . . until the wind completely died. Then we had maybe 45 minutes of solid wind with a bit of drizzle . . . . followed by no wind again. Still, I had a great time. As an example of how light the wind was Sunday afternoon (except for the middle), I ran a couple 360s with Revs on 120 foot lines (once with a team rev, and once with Paul LeMaster's Zen).
