I just signed up for my first Road Scholar trip on November 1 thru the 6th. I'll be arriving on October 31st in the afternoon. looking forward to meeting everyone. I hope to also visit a high school friend who is living in the San Antonio area. Should be a good trip.

I am about to sign up for the Nov 1-6 trip. Is there anyone else arriving that morning/early afternoon? I have a couple of options on flights and willing to share car to hotel. Also thinking of staying an extra day and going to Austin; anyone interested in joining me? Please advise ASAP as I need to make airline reservations.

I'm attending the 11/8-13 program, but I'm arriving on 11/7, and will be traveling from the San Antonio airport to the Drury Hotel. My plane arrives at 8:50 pm. If anyone is coming in around that time, I would be happy to share cab fare with you. I am also eager to see sights the next day until we check into the program. If anyone is interested in joining me for sightseeing, or for the ride from the airport on 11/7, let me know. Cheryl

Cheryl, I'm arriving on the 7th also, but much earlier in the day. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Attending the 11/8-13, 2015 program and looking forward to it. Lived in SA in early 80's so anxious to notice changes and revisit sites.

Sharon- thanks for signing up! We hope you'll enjoy seeing the changes to the city, as well as the well-preserved historic sites. The city is excited that the mission complex was designated as a UNESCO world heritage site

This is a hello to anyone going next week - Jan. 25 - 30, 2015. (I hope it warms up while we're there!)

Helen- We're glad you're joining us! Temperatures in Texas were in the 70s this week, and are expected to be in the high 60s or low 70s next week.

What is the weather like in San Antonio the first week of February?
Natalie Maynor Dec 31, 2014 at 07:12 PM

Why do I have the feeling you're not from the South? :-) Your question is impossible to answer not only for San Antonio but for pretty much anywhere else in the South. It can be 80 degrees one week and 20 degrees the next week. It's easy to know what kind of weather to expect in summer, but winter is a guessing game. I happened to go on the San Antonio trip last year in *extremely* cold weather (late January), but that was unusual weather for San Antonio. I would recommend looking at weather forecasts the week before to see what it's looking like. You can also see weather history for a particular date on sites like wunderground.com.

I am attending this program from Feb. 1-6, 2015. I would appreciate a female, non smoking roommate.

Faye- if you register and enroll with "double occupancy", we will pair you with a female roommate. All of the rooms at the hotel are non-smoking, and we'll put you with another non-smoker. We hope you sign up to join us!
Faye Marcus Dec 12, 2014 at 11:44 PM

I have already enrolled as a single. How do I change this to a double? Will I receive a refund on the single supplement?

You may change your enrollment status. Please call our office at 512-471-3599 to discuss.

On February 2 I am driving from Spring, TX to San Antonio for this program. I will be glad to take someone OR I would contribute to gas if someone else is driving and would like a passenger.
