Woo Hoo.... CYA all in June
« on: February 01, 2012, 10:32:19 AM »
The AHA website store must be getting pretty bogged down right now.  Took a half hour to register for NHC.  But, me and the better half are registered, and excited about our second conference.  

Brewing with Bigfoot, baby.

w00t!  ;D
In a humble log cabin off an unregarded back road, somewhere, deep in the heart of Pennsylvania’s hill country, we find our intrepid hero — the Brush Valley Brewer.

Room booked.
Full Conference Ticket purchased.
Plane Tickets bought ( thank God for FF miles - it's something like $700 from the East Coast right now )

Is it June yet?  ;)

Well, I got an hour drive, then a ferry, then who knows from the ferry dock to Bellevue. 

Still better than a plane ride...........   But too far to commute each day.

well, maybe I will get a hotel room... but I can't pay 140 a night... If I end up needing one, I can walk over to one of the cheap hotels near by.

and mic, probably 20-45 minutes to Bellevue depending on traffic. Just make sure to take I-90 instead of 520, 520 is tolled now.

You can certainly do that, but take it from a seasoned conference veteran...it's MUCH better to stay at the conference hotel than to be even next door.  How about getting a roommate to knock the price down?

Yeah, even the GC members end up sharing rooms just to cut costs. you gotta figure you're spending most of your time not in there and most of the time sleeping with powerful sedation. :)

and yeah, conference hotel is key just to not miss out on random happenings.

Or several room-mates.....take turns sleeping on the floor.

You may want to require them to take a shot of beano before agreeing to share your room  :D ( Watch out for the Yeast Ghosts )

My roommates have found that they need ear plugs more than beano....
