NU and Jerrycoin meet, what FUN!

Suggestion! 

 

Meet another MI, and share some great experiences, with other travelers.

 

Tonight, NU and I met for the first time, with more to come, in Phoenix, at the Marriott Buttes.  We really had nice things to say about Marriott and the MI giving us a chance to share some travel tales.  We both expressed our admiration for what many of you have contributed to our travel experiences.  There was only positive things said about how your "Tips" had helped even "Experienced" travelers enjoy their travels more.

 

He is from Iowa, and I am from Missouri, so we can't "Glamorize" anything.  However, "Husker" is a person that evokes a special love for what he does, and what he believes.  He is a Veteran and has an immense fondness of family, duty and country. 

 

Hopefully, we all will get a chance to have a "ChinWag", (I learned this in Canada), from other Insiders.

 

Here are a few pictures from our visit:

 

Note the beauty of Buttes, "Old Glory", and the classy status of the hotel.  Don't forget to enjoy the great NU jacket he enjoys!

 

Thanks Marriott!

 

PS, We are inviting a great "Chap", Chris to meet us in Burlington, Iowa for a personal tour from us "Yanks".

      ss,

       

      Thanks for your kind remarks, "You are what you are".

       

      I am sitting here in a nice RI in Scottsdale, AZ and each day is a blessing.

       

      By the way, I got a direct call, from the GM today, Terry, asking me if all was OK!  That impressed me, and all is well, but I cannot remember that happening to me in a long time.

        I think we should all gather at a Ritz somewhere and compare stories of travel and our lives.  We could have a reunion of sorts.

    That is such a great idea. I hope I will find a way to meet one of you, or one of the many others I have gotten to know here, also, in the future!

      tryt,

       

      Thanks for your comments, and so true.

       

      By the way, and I hope I speak for all other MI's, we discussed, "We are not any more "Special", than others, but having a laugh together, was fun. 

       

      Even loved ones do not understand, nor sometimes appreciate travel, like those who have done it.

    Jerry, did you all plan the meeting or just happened to be there at the same time and just started talking?

     

    What made your stay at The Buttes special?  We are considering staying there for a couple of nights after a visit with a relative.

      razor,

       

      Husker saw from one of my posts that I was going to be in the Phoenix area, contacted me and we set up a meeting at the Buttes.  He stayed there, I stayed at the Scottsdale RI.  The Buttes was very nice, but not a place for me.  It is a little too much out of the way for me and was very hard to find.

       

      We did have a good visit and exchanged some good Marriott stories.

          Yes, and it was all positive! 

           

          We laughed about having a "Reunion" for all in Burlington, Iowa!  We know Chris would enjoy that!  We had good things to say about all.  I am sure we will do it again, and in Burlington, Iowa (Really!).

      CM,

       

      One thing for sure that came out of the visit, was that the MI site had a very positive impact on our travel plans and experiences.  It will probably even have a larger impact on MI's as costs go up and travel becomes even more challenging.

    I'm finally settled in back at the PHX airport Marriott for my last night here.  First, what a pleasure netting jerrycoin and his wife!  They are classy people and absolutely that was one of the highlights of this trip.  Even better than my three rounds of golf!  I'll definitely keep watch on Insiders and if someone mentions being somewhere that I'll be also, I'll try to do this again. 

     

    Razorback fan, I thought the Buttes was very nice if a resort location is what you're after.  It is kind of spread out...lobby to parking to room makes for a lot of walking.  But, the staff in general, and a couple of folks particularly, were just outstanding.  Not sure if I'd stay there again by myself, but my wife wanted me to check it out was possible future trip with her. 

     

    So anyway, back to the subject, I say do yourselves a favor and take an opportunity to meet another insider.

        Yes, for sure!  We all want to meet you!

         

        You could invite all to your buddy's seafood place, on the water, in Monterey, at The Sardine Factory.  We could have some Dom P. for the Professor, some NE steak for NU, some wild game for Jasper, some Virginia wine for Chris (I am sure he would not mind CA wine). Shoeman, Tryt, and all the other great insiders will just have to RSVP, what they want.

         

        Two more things, Steve Tyler will sing, and Andy gets to pick up the tab!

         

        Fair enough?

            You will have to discuss the Dom P. with the Professor.

             

            I can remember buying my first bottle for $29, now Sam's sell it for $119 a bottle.  Love it, but just don't drink it anymore.

                That's when I bought mine at a place called 905 in St. Louis.

                    Yes, and one thing I would like to share with you that "Husker" and I talked about the other night is this:

                     

                    Just because anyone has been so fortunate to have done a lot of nice things in their life, we are NOT BETTER, than anyone else, nor that we cannot learn from others.  Yes, most of us have lived some great dreams, but we appreciate how fortunate we are to be able to have done so much.  Likewise, we respect others that may have different desires and travel wishes.

                     

                    In downtown, Epernay, there is a small monument to General Patton.  I discovered it by mistake, I have no pictures, but it commemorates his march to the Rhine.  Likewise, I was at his church in Haute Villars, where Dom P. was a monk and invented Method Champ.

                     

                    The area is very nice to visit, and a fun drive from Paris.

                        Where did you ever find this?  I was sitting in my car and saw this, driving from Paris to Basel, Switzerland.  I wish I could have stopped along the way and paid my respects to the Americans buried in the graves.  Spent many trips in Alsace, and love every one of them!

        Husker,

         

        It sounds like the first World Summit for Marriott will be in Burlington, Iowa. 

         

        We'll have to make arrangements.  London, Paris, Monte Carlo, and the others just can't "Ante Up"!

         

        We will have to notify the FF.  Maybe they will give us all a corporate rate, $49.99 per night?

    It's true.  Traveling makes for a great commonality in forging new friendships.  Shared passion and similar experiences with folks who "get" it.  I really got a kick out of reading all of this!

      I meet such interesting people when I travel, and assume everyone else does too.

    You guys are making me feel all warm and fuzzy inside!  Glad you're meeting up and Chin-wagging (OK - the visual on that just plain cracks me up!)  I have had the good fortune to meet Stepping Stones a time or two -- delightful chap, but his wife is the real charmer!   Frankly, you're all gems and I'm glad we have you...

      I will pass the compliment along to Mrs SS, Michelle, and thanks--you and the rest of the staff are great folks to know and in my past life, to work with as Ambassador.

    Jerry and NU:

     

    What a great idea!! Glad to see that you both had such a good time getting together.

     

    What fun it would be for a bunch of us to gather and talk tales of travel! I hope I get to meet as many of you as I can some day during travels or 'come on by' if you're in my area in Santa Rosa Beach, FL. We'll enjoy wine and the sunset with the company we share it with!

      Jerry ... I just had a quick recap on this ... sitting here with a big grin and looking forward to a major catch-up!  I am actually glad this resurfaced as it is a great refresher.  What happened to the promised 'Burlington Summit'?

       

      Chris ...

        Chris,

         

        It is going to happen!

         

        Just our schedules have been in different directions.  I have been in a lot of other "River towns" here in the US.  Most recently, St. Joseph, Mo, Kansas City, Mo., Jefferson City, Mo, Columbia, Mo, Washington, MO, Hannibal, Mo and so on.  Sort of feel like Mark Twain, I have spent so much time in these "River Towns!"

         

        NU is heading for Washington DC in the near future, so I am hoping to catch up to him later this Summer!

         

        Lastly, I sure enjoy "The Pub Book" you gave me!  Makes me kind of "Thirsty"!  Here's a picture you might enjoy.

        The Albert, a great place we stopped in after seeing The Changing of the Guard at Buckingham Palace.  "Our throats were severely "Parched" and The Albert was a great Oasis in The London "Desert"!

          Jerry

           

          Yes, the Albert is a nice pub.  Ironically, I was in the 'Burlington' Arms the week before last with my two sons.  Nice little Victorian pub that serves good ale and has excellent Scotch Eggs!  It is very small though and, in good weather, many people stand on the pavement (sidewalk) with their drinks.  It tends to be a very safe pub ... it is directly behind the West Police station!

            Chris,

             

            Don't think I have been to The Burlington Arms, will have to put it on my list!

             

            I noticed that some of the other Pubs attract large crowds that stand on the pavement.  Note this "Pavement" crowd at The Audley,  near The JW Grosvenor! The guys in the yellow are security to keep people from getting in the street!  What a "Happy Hour!"

      Not sure why this has resurfaced.  Good news is worth repeating, I guess.
