Travel adventures on this earthly pilgrimage

Reserve a Seat at the First Humboldt Travel Hacker Seminar

For months now I’ve been wanting to hold a seminar for family and friends who are interested in learning more about the travel rewards game. I’ve finally settled on a date and venue, so without further ado, the first Humboldt Travel Hacker Seminar is announced:

When: Monday, March 20th, 6:30-8:00 p.m.

Where: Ferndale Pizza Company, Ferndale, California

Cost: Free

There will not be pizza. Sorry to burst that bubble. The restaurant is closed on Mondays, which is why I can use it. We’ll have the place to ourselves. Shout out to my in-laws who are letting us use the place.

The event will be held in the back room of the restaurant, and seating will be limited to that space, so there will be a maximum of 24 people.

What will the event cover?

The seminar will be a starter course in “travel hacking”. It’s intended to be for those who are interested in how to travel more cheaply or for free, but don’t really know where to start. The seminar will cover some general basics of hotel and loyalty programs, how to accrue miles through credit card sign-ups and spending, and how to use miles for free travel. There will be an open Q&A session at the end.

If the event is a success, I’ll likely hold a second one in the future. Spread the word to friends if you think they might be interested.

How to register and other details

If you are interested in the seminar, please message me via the Points, Miles & Life Facebook page or via the contact form at pointsmilesandlife.com with your name and number attending. If you have my personal email and/or phone number, you’re welcome to contact me by either of those methods as well. I’ll add you to the list of attendees.

Feel free to contact me with questions prior to the event as well.

If you reserve a seat but later realize you cannot make it, please let me know as soon as possible in case someone else can still take your place. I don’t really expect us to fill up, but it may happen.

Hope to see you all there!
