It’s less than two weeks until I jump on a big bird and fly into the USofA.
I received the good news this morning that my press credentials have been approved and will be waiting for me when I get there. Woohoo!
I’ve got my cameras all sorted, laptop ready, voice recorder primed. Here I come.
1/ Dinner in LA
I’ll be flying into LA on January 10. After arriving I’ll be jumping into a car with Gripen and heading up to Bob Sinclair’s place in order to meet the 1980s Saab USA legend in person and do an interview piece. Should be fun.
That night we’ll be having dinner in LA, so if anyone wants to join us, feel free to drop me a note in comments or via email. I’m unsure if Bob will be joining us for dinner, but given that it’ll be about 90 minutes from his home I’d lean towards him not making the trip.
2/ Get together in Detroit
The big dance will be in Detroit and that’s where I’ll be from the 11th to the 15th of January.
If you’re going to be in the area at that time then please let me know. I’d love to try and organise a TS dinner meeting or something so we can all put faces to names, etc. Greg Abbott will be there and I’m hoping Wulf will at some stage, too. If you’re in area between the 11th and 15th then please, again, use the contact link above to get in touch and let me know.
All welcome and from the contacts generated here I’ll put together a mailout to try and get it organised.
The help required: Tipping.
Here in Australia we just rely on an employer to pay service staff a decent wage and therefore, tipping isn’t commonplace. So when is it appropriate to tip, and how much?
I’m guessing maybe taxis, hotels and restaurants. Anything else?
