Treasure Island, FL - January 18/19, 2014

Postby goestoeleven » Sun, Sep 29 2013, 10:24 PM

Just booked some plane tickets . . . . I can probably make one day, maybe both, depending on how things are going in Florida. The main reason for me to go to Florida is to check up on my father, so we'll see how things go.

So, who's doing what days?

I'm looking at probably traveling in on Thursday, and out on Monday...

I am going to try to make one day that weekend, but I'm not sure which one yet. My Dad needs help so that's my first priority when I'm there. I will keep my eye on the weather.

Fern and I will be there Saturday and Sunday.
We have to be at TPA Monday morning around 8:30.

Anyone heading back at the same time? I'll book a taxi otherwise.

Ooh, bummer. That's pretty early. I'm going for a later flight.

If I come down to TI on Sunday, I could drop you off at a hotel near the airport on Sunday night. Then you could shuttle to the airport in the morning. Of course, that doesn't work if my TI day ends up being Saturday . . . .

My best guess is that my TI day will be Sunday, unless the weather forecast is much better for Saturday. I'll probably spend Saturday with my father at his house.

I'm planning on arriving Friday mid-day...and heading-out Monday night.

Four Wisconsin (WKC) SLK kiters will also be attending those same dates. Two will remain in Florida (at VillaJynx) and are planning to attend the TI KiteMania Fest Feb. 8th-9th, as well.

See you there! :up:

Hello kids... I get in Friday morning and leave Tuesday afternoon with rental car.
I have a studio room with a single queen now, but could probably change it to a double queen if you, Jeff, want to share a room.
I could take you Monday if you need a ride.

Fern and I are now leaving TPA at 3:45 pm on Monday.

We're now flying out to California and from there to Florida. Which means lugging all those team kites from coast to coast, so I'm thinking about that...

Mike - Assuming I get to TI on Sunday (depends on how my father is doing), I can bring them back to Illinois for you. Would they all be in the Sportube (1 bag to check)?

thanks, but I'd rather you carried them out to California for me (I'm heading there first). I'll suck it up and carry them out to California, even though I don't like checking luggage. I'm flying SW, so it doesn't cost anything.

OK. Unfortunately, I'm on United to Florida (so it would cost to check the bag) and SWA back (free). Plus we'd need to meet up before you leave for CA, and again at the TPA airport when I get in late Friday night, so it's probably not worth it. Sorry I could not help - I thought you were going to CA after TI, but it looks like my reading comprehension sucked today.

No problem. We should have planned ahead - I just put my father on a plane to St. Pete on Friday, but he probably would have forgotten the bag at the baggage claim.
