Congratulations to all the FT competitors! I'll be following this as closely as I follow TAR!

Note: teams should begin getting scared... the coast-to-coast chex-geo mind connection is currently occurring and it is frighteningly awesome!

But will Geo actually fly? I've seen a picture of him in a seat next to you on a plane - and it was exactly that, a picture.

Talking

Not to worry - I have this cool and snazzy little Microsoft Outlook thingy already blocking March 15 to the 22 as "Out of Office"

That said, if anyone wants to place a bet, I'm fairly confident chexfan will be happy to take your euros!

I don't even have confirmation that Geo actually exists. I still think he's Chexy's imaginary friend.

You guys did get the word that there's been a change in plans and we're all meeting in Duluth on March 16, right?

We're THE team!

OK guys. I know that I haven't really posted in the past, and you guys definitely seem to be regulars here, but WE are the team your parents warned you about. Meet Bob and Ally! We will be meeting up with you guys in JFK, Duluth, or wherever the destination may be.....but, we'll be there! All here already know a little about the five teams being sponsored by Randy, and more about us will come soon.

Team GEC reporting for duty! Thanks so very much to Randy for this wonderful opportunity to represent Flyertalk and kindred souls impacted by these crazy times. We Will Not disappoint! Our mileage earning withdrawal symptoms are disappearing already!

PS. In a very small world twist of fate, I believe that Kent and Linda live three houses down the street from our best friends!

Team GEC is spying on us already!

I'm convinced that team GEC is spying on us already.

They sent their friend down to our front yard to peek through the windows while we tried to cram three suitcases into one backpack.

As I'm sure you know team GEC, it didn't work. The backpack explosion has taken out our dining room. I think your friend made it out all right. I saw the tracks in the snow.

Can't wait to get together with everyone before leaving. I hope to 'profile' everyone who's on the March 15th flight for the blog. I trust no one is in the witness protection program, right?

Kent and Linda
team Gadling

WOW! 5 teams from FT. Thank you Randy!

To all team members: What an adventure; can't wait to share it even if just vicariously. Have fun and good luck!

Methinks that as long as Elizabethhhhhh and l'etoilet begin their travels on that date, we will have nothing to worry about!

See ya in Deluth!!!

People from SEA and DCA travel a combined greater distance to Europe than two people leaving from SFO? Clearly, we'll have no problems eliminating this team. One can't do math and the other can't spell (Deluth??). And that's just for starters ...
