I imagine that more than a few paleohackers are planning on going to this on the weekend of August 5th? Sure, it's way early, but let's talk cost and logistics.
As an east-coaster with no Los Angeles friends, or paleo friends for that matter, room-sharing sounds like a great idea to reduce quite extensive trip costs. Anybody else in the same boat?
Also, who would be up for a paleohackers meetup before the conference starts? I haven't requested vacation yet or bought a plane ticket, but it would be nice to know how many people are interested in meeting up for a nice, cold O'Doul's and some soft pretzels. (uh, I mean coconut milk and beef heart slices) Anyone know of a good paleo place to eat around the UCLA campus?
So...who's going, who's interested in a room share, and who's interested in a meet-up? And who's super-pumped?!!?
Just for everyone else's knowledge here: we set up a fare alert on Kayak which worked beautifully for getting VERY inexpensive flight tickets to LAX. Two weeks ago, flights were $450-600 round trip from Pittsburgh to LA. This morning, we woke up to $165 round trip tickets. Hopefully, everyone else attending can benefit from Kayak's fare alert too. Saved the two of us some serious dough.
Hey everybody- would it be helpful if I started a page on Facebook to give us a forum for working out logistics? Could call it "Meeting up at the Ancestral Health Symposium" or something like that.
I'm in for a meetup! I'd like to do something on the 2nd night though, because the first day I plan on getting there in the morning. I can't afford to spend too many nights.
I've emailed off the board with a couple of the girls to try and get a roomshare together. I haven't bought plane tickets yet either, but I hope to do so soon.
PUMPED! I need to make a few phone calls and see if I can find a free place to stay / car to drive. Also, I need to check in with school and see if taking a day or two extra off will be okay. Let's do a meet-up for sure. I'm excited to be a around people who know more about this stuff than I do!
Hello everybody. My name is Nélio and I'm from Brazil. I got my flight tickets today so I'm definitely going to this symposium!!
I am on my own so I am really in for a meetup especially because we don´t have a strong paleo/primal community here, so would be nice to get to know you guys!
I still have no idea where to stay or where to look for.. but anyway I'll soon set myself somewhere!
As I've mentioned, I'll be there. I'm going to get a room for the two nights and then head off to stay with friends for the rest of the week; I plan to spend the weekend in full-on paleofriends mode. I'd also love to roomshare with ladies who are not serial killers.
I just bought my ticket (system indicated there were only 44 tickets left so you might want to get on this if you haven't reserved a place at the symposium yet.) I'd love to meet up and maybe do a room share or something too.
I'm an MD from Arizona who just got his ticket and booked his flight to the Ancestral Health Symposium! I'm pumped beyond words, this is my passion in life. Alas, I'm a poor resident physician and am looking for a roomshare....any offers??? Can't wait to meet you all and have a blast at this conference.
