Just found out I have vacation time I didn't know about - and looked, but can't find a cheap enough flight, and 12 hours is too far for me to drive for a long weekend. And I am committed to volunteering the weekend of the Tampa event, otherwise I totally would go south in November! Hoping the next conference will again be on the east coast... Report
