I’ve had a lot of fun when I’ve attended conferences such as the Family Travel for Real Life or the Chicago Seminars.  Here’s a shot of an “after party” after one of the Family Travel for Real Life conference


This was an “after party” after the last Family Travel for Real Life conference, from Leslie at TripsWithTykes

Of course, I’m the guy in the back in the white shirt, obliviously checking my phone, so obviously I’m a real social butterfly! 😀

One of the rules of manufactured spending is that “all manufactured spending is local”, meaning what works in one location might not work in another.

Here’s a shot from the inaugural Cincinnati miles and points meetup, which we had back in October 2015 at Dewey’s Pizza


Obviously I’m quite the “photog” capturing the server blurrily moving through my picture… 🙂  I wasn’t quite sure how many people to expect, but we had I think 14 people there, with a wide variety of skill and interest levels.

Cincinnati miles and points meetup date

The next Cincinnati miles and points meetup will be Saturday, September 21st, starting at 3pm.

Cincinnati miles and points meetup location

We’ve almost been kicked out of the Reading library :-), and the Madeira library tried to charge us $50, so we are once again back at the Oakley branch library.  The meeting rooms are also removed from the main library so we can be as loud and crazy as we want!! 🙂 Added bonus – right across the street from CVS!


Here’s a shot from the 2nd Cincinnati miles and points meetup at the Reading Library.

So, if you’re from Cincinnati (or Northern Kentucky, Southeastern Indiana, Dayton, Columbus or anywhere else nearby) and have a hankering to talk about any aspect of miles and points, leave a note in the comments.  You can also email me at dan at pointswithacrew dot com if you want to get put on my “list” of local folks who are interested in these meetups.

I’ve set up an Evite at so please register if you’re interested in attending!
