Delayed flight. But I'll be there! First RS trip for me. Looking forward to it.

Kathy V Jan 22, 2016 at 05:00 PM

This is my first trip w/ RS and I'm a little anxious going out of O'Hare & possible snow. Anyone else going at 12:30? I hope I'm not delayed.

Judy Mayo Jan 07, 2016 at 06:01 PM

We are actually from Georgetown Texas - not far from San Antonio. Just thought this trip looked interesting. Any other Texans going?

Judy- we are looking forward to a great week! There are two other Texans signed up, plus all our great staff members are native Texans!

Does anyone know the approximate size of groups?

We are pleased to say that we currently have 126 people registered for this program. Our participants will be broken up into 4 groups of approximately 31-32 each. Looking forward to seeing you next week!

We are leaving 1/26 at 8:22am from JFK in NYC. Looking forward to meeting other travelers in San Antonio. This is our first RS trip.

Joyce- We are glad y'all are headed our way! You will be able to meet other travelers at the airport and on the bus to the hotel, and arrive early enough that you'll get a chance to see the city before the program starts, if you like!

Correction: I am flying out on 01/26/16.
Kathy V Dec 14, 2015 at 09:32 PM

I'm traveling out of O'Hare. This is my first trip w/ RS.
Kathy V Dec 14, 2015 at 09:35 PM

Actually I'm not leaving until 12:27pm on UA.

Shirley G Dec 08, 2015 at 10:46 AM

I am attending the Great Am. Get Together in San Antonio, TX, 01/16 thru 02/02/16. Anyone else flying out of O'Hare on that Tuesday morning?

Shirley- We're glad you'll be with us! There are 10 other people who will be flying from Chicago that morning, but they are on a different airline, with a connection, so will arrive after you get to San Antonio. You'll be able to connect with others at the airport and on the bus to the hotel.
