ERC is alive and well and getting great upgrades

Hey fellow Insiders,

 

While I didn't actually get to visit with our old buddy erc on my weekend trip to Washington D.C., we did catch up by phone. He's doing great, traveling here and there and scoring some amazing upgrades (like a Junior Presidential suite in S.F. and a top floor water view at the Baltimore Renaissance Harborplace). He traces his success on upgrades back to the time he took a break from MRI and worries that returning would jinx him.  I believe he's off to NOLA next.

 

So, let me pass along a hearty greeting to the Marriott Rewards Insiders community from erc. He called out a few folks by name for good or for ill (you can decide which category fits best ). We didn't speak long but he did give a shout out to IAHFLYR, foxglove, pluto77, ssindc, jerrycoin, NathalieF, brightlybob, vaboywnder, and kharada46. There were a few others, by my memory fails me at the moment (a sure sign of geezerhood ).

 

In any case, I let him know he has been missed around these parts. I was pleased that he asked me to pass along so many greetings. Perhaps when the string of upgrades runs out and he can no longer blame it on his participation (or lack thereof) on this site, he'll return. I hope so.

    Hey, bejacob, thanks for sharing/posting!!!!

     

    And I love erc's twisted (but, sadly, potentially logical and self-serving) logic!!!

      You hit it perfectly ssindc, extremely "twisted logic" and guess that's why I always enjoyed reading his posts as well as a few direct messages from him as I can relate very well.

       

      Thanks much for the update bejacob.  I was gone for a week and got an upgrade as well so me thinks he's on to something.

       

      It has been fun being here on the Insider site, you fine folks take care now as I'm on the upgrade track as well.

    bejacob Thanks for tracking erc down and letting us know he's doing well -- that's so good to hear. He was a big part of why I took an immediate liking to the Insiders community. Here's hoping it won't be too long before he decides to reappear and regale us all with the stories of his recent travels.

    bejacob,

     

    Thanks for the update on our wonderful MRI, erc!

     

    Sure miss his insights and experiences. 

     

    Would have written earlier, but the RI Branson, Mo., was upgrading their internet, and I couldn't access MRI!

     

    Please keep up the great work!

      good news at least this week I stayed at two full service Marriott's and got on concierge floors  both times. I wonder if ERC put a good word in

    DOh! Surely the only requirememt for great upgrades cant be abandonment of MRI?

     

    ACtually, thinking about erc  contributions, (and some of mine), perhaps that could be it

     

    WOw, misterchk  are you in trouble, if erc is right 2016 looks like dumpster views with the ice machine as your nearest neighbour! Enjoy!
