Seems work is requesting I make a trip for Face to Face meetings in St. Louis November 27th ish...

any members close enough to visit?

preliminary plans would be that I fly out Monday morn to be in St. Louis in time for me to find where I have to go, have my meetings on Tuesday and if lucky go home Tuesday but most likely i'll leave Wednesday morning.

if thats the case, I could be free for dinner Monday or Tuesday night?

I really hate company travel but a bright spot of meeting a fellow forum member would make it that much more tollerable

I pushed back on the holiday week travel. crikey! wednesday the day before thanksgiving is the number 1 busiest airline travel day of the year AND the one most likely to have massive delays and weather issues. no thanks, not to mention last minute ticket purchases for this week this late would be quite expensive.

as an employee and shareholder, it offends me to spend $1600 on airfare when if you go just a week later it'd be half as much..

now were looking at choice 1 of Dec 4th in St. Louie with a 2nd choice of the turkey week travel.

did I mention I hate business travel?

You could probaly rent a car and drive home faster than a plane could carry you that day.

I mean, ya know if you are here, we will be taking you for some wings and beer, and if you want to ride, heck, I'll toss you my keys.

we could set a group ride up.

But St. Louis, I use any excuse to go there

Spok, keep us updated on when you will be there. If I am not working, dinner is on me.

Curt
I'd be happy to dine with you but i'd insist on letting my company foot my bill. If they are so set on sending me to meet face to face in this age of computer technology, I'm going to spend every bit of my $75 per meal allowance and have a good time with it.

wow. I remember the last job I had that paid per diem, it was like $20. not that long ago either.
we get treated well when we travel, they usually put us in pretty nice hotels as well, and they normally have a free breakfast something a ma jig that usually eliminates the cost of a expensive morning meal, normally we are on site and eat in a cafeteria for lunch so, its usually just dinner that we spend the per meal fee on...but i'll make sure i use it up as best i can
