Andy and I hosted a great meet-up of our readers plus a couple of our fellow bloggers from Boarding Area. We were privileged to have Keri from HeelsFirst Travel and Jeanne for LeChicGeek, fellow BoardingArea.com bloggers show up for the festivities. We really appreciated the other readers who showed and had a great time talking both about military stuff and miles/points and other tips for frequent travelers. A couple of the readers also turned out to read HeelsFirstTravel and LeChicGeek so we had a great exchange of travel experiences and tips.
Sorry if you missed out, but drop us a note and let us know where you are if you want to meet with Andy or I. We both travel a lot and would be glad to meet with readers no matters where you are stationed.
Andy, Keri, Glenn, and Jeanne. Does this BoardingArea.com shirt make me look fat?
Drinks and talk. For those of you who didn’t come and get the free chicken wings I ordered, send me a stamped self-addressed envelope and I will mail one to you. Andy is off to Oki after this so not sure when you will see the two of us together, but don’t be afraid to reach out for a connection. We love talking to all our readers!
I also took the opportunity to advertise for my friend Charlie’s crazy six marathon run. The last of the six runs takes place in D.C. on 10 Sep and follows the Marine Corps Marathon route. I am joining in and I hope a few others of you can also. Personally, I am hoping Charlie is worn out by the time he gets to D.C. so that I have a hope of matching his pace!
He is doing this all as a charitable event to raise money for the Wounded Warrior Project. Please join or donate, hopefully both. I am giving $262, so $10/mile (even if I can’t finish the whole thing). We look forward to seeing the bravest of you there.
