Hi there, I'm a single signed up for a double Any one else in that category? I'm told I make a good roommate I currently live in Florida, but lived most of my life in Minnesota. My background is in human services I'm staying in the area a few days after this program. Planning to check out Death Valley and fly out of Las Vegas very late on the 27th.

I believe that the program is filled. My husband, Richard," and I got the last spots. Looking forward to it. I also just enrolled in Pictures with a Pro for late Sept. in VA, but will be attending alone as my hubby is not into photography. We are flying into San Francisco on the 17th and renting a car. It's only a 4 hour drive, but we plan to do a little sightseeing and stop along the road somewhere for the night. Hope the wild fires have burnt themselves out by then.

My wife and I are looking forward to the October 18 program. Hopefully too early for snow but may need warm clothing. Should be a good group as the program seems to be filled.
