GP Tech 2017 – Recap & Getting Home

So, now that I’ve caught up with the daily recaps, I’m starting this post from the Minneapolis airport. I should be landing in Toronto right now, according to my original itinerary but I’m still sitting here. Apparently there is some awful weather in Toronto affecting all flights both in and out so we aren’t leaving, since we can’t land.

The bonus though, was Delta has been excellent this time around. They even brought in a beverage cart into the waiting gate area to give the passengers free drinks and snacks while they waited. I’ve been publicly ranting about my flight delay issues and this time I’m happy to give a shout out on a positive side.

GP Tech 2017 – Day 1

Day 1 of this year’s GP Tech Conference was Tuesday August 8, 2017. I’m writing this recap post as I sit in the airport on my way back home, as the week just came and went too quickly to get on top of these posts on each day! This year’s recaps will also not quite be in as much detail as they may have been in prior years, it’s quite simply too time consuming to attempt to pay attention and document everything in detail!

My first post for this trip can be found here, if you’re interested: Getting to Fargo.

GP Tech 2017 – Getting to Fargo!

Today’s story actually starts 2 days ago. You see, I was scheduled to fly in on Saturday, not today (Monday). I had registered to attend eOne Solutions‘ SmartConnect Boot Camp, a 2-day course before the conference begins. I was willingly giving up more of my Civic Holiday long weekend to learn some new skills. However, that didn’t pan out and today I’m starting this as I’m sitting in the airport trying to fly one more time!
