was glad to see you in Czech, guys, but unfortunately the way to Texas is out of my budget... how much does flight from Europe to USA cost? =)

What about training? Will MT be offering training before MUM as they did last year in Chicago?

Thanks,

GBP400 flight plus GBP200 for accommodation, so I won't be going! Sad, but times are tough and I've already been to Dallas.

I can't go there on those days.

New to MikroTik and RouterOS and was happy to see this MUM right in my own backyard! Awaiting approval from the boss- but one way or another I plan on being there.

If anyone needs help with accommodations or info about the Metroplex (DFW), I'd be more than happy to help!

Right, I have just booked my flights and paid the course costs. I am flying all the way from New Zealand and looking forward to the training, MUM and my first trip to America.

Can anyone suggest some sights to see during the evenings ?

You are coming from the middle of Winter down in NZ to the middle of Summer in the USA so plan on preparing for the heat.

If your trip allows a lay over in Hawaii, take as much time as you can and spend some time on Waikaki Beach. :)

I have flown from the USA to Sydney, Australia twice. The second time, I scheduled a 3 day lay-over in Hawaii and it was wonderful. I assume that NZ to the USA follows the same air route.

I guess we will have to wait for the locals from Dallas or Ft. Worth to fill us in with the hot spots for night life.

I'll be there all week. Training plus the show.

Yeah, I have done a little reading on Wikipedia and the like, but the locals always know best.

Are you staying at the venue ?

Here are a few suggestions from a Fort Worth local. Sites to see: Sundance Square in downtown Fort Worth- safest downtown anywhere in the US and where you will find the more native Texans, quite friendly. Bars: 8.0's, Embargo, Aqua Lounge, Patty Reds, Billy Miners, etc, etc. Be sure to drink the local Rahr beer.
About a mile to the north are the Historic Stockyards. White Elephant Saloon is the oldest saloon in FW. Next door is the Love Shack, great hamburgers, try the Dirty Love Burger. Next door to Love Shack is the Bull Ring, an ice cream parlor and beer joint.
Just a stones throw west of downtown Fort Worth is the Cultural District: Amon Carter Museum, Kimbell Art Museum, Modern Art Museums are all first class.
Places to eat in FW: Fred's Cafe, Paco & Johns (Tex Mex), Angelo's BBQ, Fuzzy's Taco shop, La Familia, Uncle Julio's, Esperanza's (cash only), Joe T. Garcia's (check out the patio and drink the margaritas).
In Arlington, there's the new state-of-the-art Cowboys Stadium- about three miles south on Hwy 360 where the training will be held.
As far as Dallas, well Dallas is Dallas.
I'll post more places/things to do when they come to mind. If you have any questions feel free to ask!

As far as Dallas, well Dallas is Dallas.
Hey watch it now!

Some additions would be the wineries in Grapevine just a short drive up 360. There is also the Gaylord in Grapevine as well. It has quite a few nice restaurants & Bars overlooking the lake. If you like Sushi there Blue Fish on the other side of the airport in Las Colinas which has a great 2 for 1 lunch special. Something that most of you might be interested in would be the First Saturday swap meet in downtown Dallas were you can always find tons of computer and electronics equipment. It will actually be going on the 4-5 more info can be found at http://www.sidewalksale.com/.

I had a good time, met some great people and learned a lot about how people are using Mikrotik products in their own networks.

I will put my pic's up after I am back in NZ. Pretty sure the Mikrotik guys will as well once they are back in Latvia.

I had a great time too, even though I had to bail friday afternoon and get back to work. It was good seeing my Latvian friends again too, even if we did not get to go to shopping at Fry's this time. Hey Uldis, you should have come too, I wanted to see that Itronix laptop working with RouterOS! I have the new model too... :)

See you guys next time in Dallas!

Ps: Janis, I have switched my network to PCQ, thanks for the tips!
