The "I'm Going to Extra Life United 2017!" Thread

Recommended Posts

Has anyone had a harder time finding decent airfare this year due to weekend travel? The plane tickets alone are threatening to swallow our savings! How is everyone coping with this development?

It was hard to find travel that worked out with timing of check-in and outs. However I had better luck by buying two one way tickets and searching a host of different airlines. If you do that and are one to get trip insurance, like me,  get the trip insurance with one ticket and then call them up and add the other flight it is more beneficial for the duration of your trip and will cost you less.  Also, don't be hesitant to ask around to see if friends have reward miles they would like to gift you for the cause. If so CALL the airline to book  the flight, do not use the web portal. I did and even before applying the reward miles, the rate was cheaper. Good Luck.

Hey, EL Friends!

I received word from Arkansas Children's Hospital that they'll be sending me to ELU again this year. Woooo! A few of us are coordinating arriving early, so if you want to meet up, let me know. :)

I'm excited to see some familiar faces and make new friends. I'm bringing extra tissues this time. #omg #thatkidparade #manytears #littleangels

WARNING: I am going to HUG ALL OF YOU (respectfully), so if you see me comin' and don't want one, just scream or something.

Feel free to contact me here or on Twitter if you want to coordinate schedules and hangouts outside of ELU events.

Hey all,

 

Forum Ninja here.  ;-) 

 

Seems that my wife is the angel here today. She is allowing me to go down for this years ELU. Might be the only ELU i get to go to but hey, I will be there.  

 

I still need to sort Airfare (working on that this evening) but hopefully it won't kill my budget.   

 

Cheers,

Now that bookings are solidified, this gnome will be attending ELU2k17! :D I CANNOT WAIT TO SEE EVERYONE! Miss you guys so much and I hope to make new friends too! <3 <3 <3 I'll be staying with Jason, Emily, and Dave, and we're flying out from Monday - Monday!

 

I'm torn between competing or volunteering, and leaning more towards volunteering. <3 

 

For those staying later or coming early, I DO want to host an open game of Dungeons & Dragons 5e.  If you are interested in playing, shoot me a private message here or on FB so I can get a headcount and start working on the campaign. Figured it'd be great to finally play with other ELUrs! No experience necessary!

I told you via FB but I am making it known here as well that I am down for playing. The only question is do I play Barb or Bard.
