I can't believe I didn't go to San Diego in '04, what was I thinking?? But, am registered and have a room for Quad Cities for my FIRST convention..monitoring Orbitz, Priceline, Travelocity, NWA, United, etc, for a reasonable fare to Moline..Hoping they might drop a tad in the next month or so....See you there and hope to meet many OLS'ers. My husband is going also and I haven't the heart to tell him there is no Harley dealership nearby....it was my only hope to keep him happy.

Location: I am an OLS Citizen from Norwalk, California where there are lots of nuts.
I just reserved my room at Motel 6 for $200.95 and it is 3 blocks west of the convention. I mentioned to Chickee the free in room services like a pool, truck parking, and HBO. Then I mentioned the free coffee. She is thinking of getting a rental car. I need the estimates on taxis. I need to work with Delta and the vooucher I won because I cannot yet find a through to Moline from Los Angeles flight let alone one that is coach. So that brings my cost to about $350 plus another $200 for fun. Now if I could win big.

I want to go because of all the nice people I met. There was this one speaker who talked about sweepstaking and gave lots of pointers. He ws from San Diego. I hope this time they will also have a time when everyone wears something they had won.

I took the first step and if I have to I will sell my Gerber Lulabies, Kwiketts, and my cell phone to get there. Remember the people who crumpled their raffle tickets and the guy drew only flat ones.

If not a chickee then Palgraf will be a nice roomie.

I can't wait!!! I might just skip the convention, and go shopping...(J/K!)


Thank you K.D. for the butterfly bling-bling!
