Hope all had a wonderful Christmas Holiday.
I bought my plane ticket and booked a small private apartment just off the Light Rail on Airbnb. Great place, private entry, pool, garden. Its about 5 stops down the tracks from Jesse's place, but at $65 a night, (minimum three night stay) its worth it. I travel for a living and found that for the most part, Airbnb is a great value.
See you all in Phoenix!
Jesse, Andrea,thanks for hosting this amazing event. Cant wait to see everyone.

: About Lodging, the Grand Canyon University
: is one of two hotels that is nearest to our

: the west end of the Hotel.
: The plan is that from now on, we will be
: driving our FCs to the GCU for breakfast
: arriving at 6:30 am and we are adding a few
: more days to drive to GCU for dinner. We
: will continue the Friday night dinner
