Absolutely it is possible. Some people are attending just one segment, and others are attending everything. There are several people who are attending everything EXCEPT the RWT. So if you are interested in attending, please complete the registration form at the beginning of this thread. We are back to a waitlist again, but chances are good that I will get another open slot soon.

If there were any risk in this, Continental would have arranged Speedy Turtle's disappearance* several years ago. She's alive & well & made an appearance at CO DO IV this winter.

They already know who many of us are anyway. It's the least of my concerns. The experience of attending this event will far outweigh any loss of anonymity. If you do remain FT-anonymous (as atldlff indicates you can) how will the rest of us know you?


*Actually, Larry Kellner thanked her for finding a hole in their system despite the ruckus that ensued.

I'd agree with that totally. Some of us have more descriptive user names than others but based on comments/profile info if they wanted to figure out who we were it'd be VERY easy.

Heck, just look in my profile, follow the link to my website and I'm outed. I don't have any concern about the airlines knowing who I am; my only concern is the TSA/DHS will someday do a roundup and detain half the folks who've posted in TS/S.

They wouldn't be the first gov't agency in the history of civilization to do such a thing.

Same here - based on my username, my city and my status, it's not that hard for someone in SM to figure me out if they wanted to (not to mention that I've had the opportunity to meet Bob Soukup amongst others and had no problem with them knowing my real name and FT handle).

For those of us that will violate the spirit of this event by driving, does anybody know how much parking costs at the Hilton?

$10 per day to self-park and $14 per day for valet (according to their web site).

If you booked a room under the Flyertalk rate parking is free.

Although I'm flying in, I'll be staying with family in the Atlanta area. I'll be driving in every morning, and will also need to park at the Hilton.

Self Parking: 10.00 USD (overnight)
Valet Parking: 14.00 USD (overnight)

I'm sure that there would be some willing FT-ers who booked the group rate who would allow you to be "them" for the purposes of parking your car...... I haven't decided if I'm going to use the group rate or one of the AP rates that is cheaper....

Ya, since I live in Buckhead, I'll just be driving down each day and am hoping to find a non-local "sponsor" staying at the hotel (without a car) who's willing to allow me to park at the Hilton. I'm willing to trade for ride(s) throughout the event, specifically to PRIME so that person doesn't have to worry about getting to/from MARTA.

If you're interested, please PM me. Thanks in advance!
