It was just so much fun to get together with readers at the Boeing factory tour and more a week ago today. Monday should be fun with BBQ and then a quick Delta elite mileage run to LAX and back. But what’s next or what else am I thinking about?
First a long term one that is, assuming they have it NEXT YEAR in 2018, we visit the Louisville area a few weeks before the Kentucky Derby and enjoy two days of fun. First, being Delta flyers, we check out the “Bourbon Trail” where Woodford is made (and others). Then the next day we AVgeek out with one of the greatest air shows and fireworks displays each year in the USA that is Thunder over Louisville. If you have never been it is an amazing way to spend the day. It is a long way out but I think we can make this one happen. Who knows, I may even try to work an SDF or CVG mileage run into the fun before or after. Humm…..
The next one more current is the Chicago Seminars 2017. While tickets are not for sale yet I will be there one way or the other. Also, as is the tradition for me, on the Thursday evening before the event I will be arranging a dinner somewhere in town. If you can fly in the day before the seminars feel free to join us and e-mail me after I post about the event. Again, I may, since I am already in the Chicago area, look for a mileage run out of the CHI area since prices tend to be very good.
What else and what other ideas. One thing I have always wanted to do is the Pan Am experience that Noah Mark guest blogged about. The issue is the event tends to sell out QUICK when they announce a new one. Many readers have said they are onboard (he, he, he) if we decide to go for this one. I think we can make this one work too.
Lastly, time to look at cities. Sure there are ones at the far end of a mileage run to Asian cities and that is in the back of my head but more locally some had suggested New Orleans, a BBQ DO or a number of other ideas. I will work on them and the details over the summer.
So what do you think, dear readers? Any of the above sound like fun? Would you join us? Share any thoughts you have in the comments below! – René
