TOLP: Friday Arrivals Can't Post

Hi folks! I will be flying in to L.A. Friday morning, arriving around 10:30 am. I'm staying at the Best Western. If anyone wants to meet up to share a ride just let me know. I don't mind hanging around for a bit waiting for folks on later flights.

Very excited to go to the party and meet all of my fellow Tolkien enthusiasts!

roomie needed? [In reply to] Can't Post

I also am planning to fly in friday, leave monday. Still trying to decide on where to stay -- Airbnb is cheap but sharing a room at the Best Western would be roughly comparable ($265 per person for three nights in a room with double beds).
Do you need/want a roomie? No sweat if you say no. But I would love to share a ride to your hotel since the Airbnb place I am looking at is also very nearby and I could easily walk there. So excited!

I'm willing to consider a roomie. :) Tell me about yourself. Where are you from? What do you do for a living? Ever been to LA before? What's your sign? LOL

my story [In reply to] Can't Post

My name is Ingrid and I am 50 years old. I work as a veterinary assistant in Westchester County north of NYC. I am a book-firster having read LOTR when I was around 15 years old. I work the renaissance faire in Tuxedo, NY in the summers so already have appropriate hobbity clothing and may wear it at the party. Will bring regular formal dress in case I change my mind.
I plan to fly in Friday and leave Monday. I have never been to LA and want to have at least one day to see some sights, most notably the LA zoo as I was formerly a zookeeper at the Bronx Zoo. My sign is Aries.

If you're game... [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi Ingrid,

I'm Janet, also 50 years old, from Houston, Texas. I had never heard of Tolkien until I saw LOTR. Now I proudly call myself a Tolkienite having read LOTR, The Hobbit, The Silmarillion, Unfinished Tales and, of course, watched the movies too many times to count...I need a 12 step program! I was looking at Hobbit garb online last night but don't know if I'm feeling that brave; plus I've already spent a bloody fortune on this trip!

Anyway, back to the issue at hand. Here's the deal...My 30 year old niece is traveling with me. I've discussed this with her and she's fine with us having a roomie. She and I have bunked together on many a trip so that's no big deal. If you're okay with it, we're okay with it. It's your call. We fly in Friday morning and fly out on Tuesday morning.

The "sign" question was a joke, but I'm a Pisces. LOL

Let me know what you decide.

Janet

This is awesome! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's great that the two of you can connect. Be aware that sharing too much personal information here is a risk since there are many thousands of lurkers (automated as well as real-life people). At a certain point, you'll want to move to PM to share details.

Have a wonderful time at the party!

sounds good [In reply to] Can't Post

Let's talk in private message about details. I have not yet booked my flights -- I will let you know the details once I make the reservation.

I might take you up on your offer of ride-sharing! [In reply to] Can't Post

On Friday at least. I'm coming back on Sunday.

I haven't made my flight arrangements yet. LAX, I presume?

Roomie & Ride Share [In reply to] Can't Post

Hi all,
I'm coming in on Friday as well - arriving about 10:30am. I'm totally up for a ride share.
I would also like to share a room with someone to save costs. I'm staying until Monday. I'm a pretty decent person to share a room with - I don't snore (and I'm easy to wake up if I do).

Okay, so apparently Denver has one flight to LAX in the morning. [In reply to] Can't Post

I arrive at 9:30 a.m. Or else I have to wait until later in the afternoon.

Oh well, I'll just bring a book and hang out waiting for everyone else.

We can exchange cell phone numbers and stuff, and text selfies to each other so we'll recognize everyone. Cool

transportation [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm not sure what the transportation options are. I'll call Best Western to see if they have a shuttle.

Hi there [In reply to] Can't Post

I'm driving in on Friday and am staying at the hotel across the street (Best Western was full), but maybe we could meet up on Friday? I'm a solo traveler, too. I'm a librarian and we are generally agreeable Hobbity sorts of people.

I am also arriving on Friday at 11:30am. I am a solo traveler and would love to join your little group! I work in an office right now but just applied to grad school.
