I’m loading up my duffle bag with mosquito repellent, mess kit, multi-tool, flashlight, sleeping bag, laptop, blog…. woah woah… well I am not taking all that stuff but I am going to camp… WordCamp! WordPressCamp!

Thanks to a direct message nudge from @lloydbudd as a reminder, I hemmed and hawed and then just spelled out WTF. I’ve got a bunch of miles on United to get there … ouch… speaking of WTF… WTF is a “close-in processing fee”? United charged me, a sort of frequent flier, $75 because I just used my miles for a trip less than 21 days out. How is that costing them money? Next thing it will be the seat-belt usage fee and the ramp extension charge. Oh and the landing gear deployment fee. Geez.

Oh well, its still an inexpensive trip, and a chance to spend a day in total geek out WordPress mode.

I’m going to camp! I’m going to camp! I’m going to camp! I’m going to camp!

If this kind of stuff has any value, please support me monthly on Patreon or a one time PayPal kibble toss

  1. Bill,

    It’s too late, my reader notified me and I am, indeed, jealous. Have fun Alan, and let me know when you are heading to DrupalCamp, I think I can make that one :)
