You mean how many can stay at my small studio? This is Vancouver we're talking about and I'm not a millionaire.

Wink Advanced searching.

My bot is out here on the Internet looking for a cheap airfare from ORD-YVR. The cheap(er) days seem to be Wednesday, 12 Sep. - to Monday, 17 Sep.
Flights connecting in SEA are also on the dias. But I ponder how much time it would take to go through U.S. Customs in SEA returning from YVR.
Put me on the 'interested' roster.

Stop pondering. CBP will take zero time at SEA since you will be pre-cleared at YVR.

I still have to figure out some things - but for a start I have booked a oneway business class ticket from NUE to YVR for Friday Sep 14 and three award nights at the holiday inn city centre.

Defintely interested if I am in town. Looking forward to putting faces to handles (I’m talking to you, Beckoa as I have yet to make it to an Alaska do ). Will confirm 100% as it gets closer and I know where I’ll be.

Return trip also booked from LAX on Saturday Sep 22. So some post-DO activities need to be organized on the way to LAX.

Missed this due to a fixation on the AC FT forum. Thanks @TCook52 for cross-posting this.

Given that...

a) I live about 5 minutes away from the OP
b) I missed the YYJ Do 'cause of a work commitment
c) I've enjoyed the two mini-Dos I've been to

... so I'm in.
