Things have been a bit quiet here the past week or so. Between some work travel overseas and ending up sick (sick travel is the worst) I’ve done a bad job keeping up with all of you. I’m hoping we can get back to some normalcy pretty quickly. In the interim, I have some good news for local DC folks. Many of you have asked me when our next DC travel Meetup would be.

The best way to learn in this hobby is to ask questions. What better place to ask questions than a happy hour filled with frequent travelers and newbies alike? Come join us for drinks and ask any questions you want about travel, miles and points.

This is your shortcut to find out what’s going on in the travel world without having to read dozens of travel blogs to get all the best info.
