if you add your name at sign in it will display the phone number and name in tiny print next to it.  If you add the person to your contacts it will then just display their name.

My ESTA is submitted but "Pending" I suspect they want to sniff my internet history, the poor fools.

Sounds like those not of Sam have got their clearances so the mobilization rumbles on.  Still plenty of time for any additional attendees to declare of course.

A plan come together is is a precondition for it coming apart (at the most inopportune moment).

OK, with much hand-holding from Sunday, I have everything booked. The ways of airline pricing are Byzantine and I've saved £200 by not going premium economy, which is nice.

 

The American habit of hiding the total cost of purchasing a room annoys - hiding taxes until the end is a bit duplicitous.

As the start date for this extravaganza is rapidly approaching it's probably time to start looking at what we want to see and do at the space center. https://www.kennedyspacecenter.com/ There are many options and we all don't have to do the same things while there.  I'm planning on doing the Cape Canaveral Early Space tour which is an add on that will take up about 3 hours.

I'm probably only going to make it on Saturday in New Orleans due to work, and also the logistical part of driving from Lafayette to New Orleans and back on Saturday evening.

Weekend traffic that bad?

There is always traffic in Baton Rouge, especially on an LSU game.

LSwho??? :P  Except during the game itself, game-day traffic is indeed a pain.

Baton Rouge traffic is terrible, because I have to travel across the Basin Bridge as well as crossing over the Mississippi. If there's a wreck on the Basin that could be hours of waiting, and because of the big curve of I-10 right after the Mississippi River bridge forming a bottleneck, crossing the bridge can be a pain.

I might change my mind between now and then--depending on how late we wrap up Saturday, that is.
