FM to Go. Coming soon to a town near you.

As a complement to our Frequent Miler Insiders Facebook Group, we have started a new meetup / seminar series: FM to Go.  We have often had readers ask us to visit their town, and we’ve wanted to.  But we didn’t previously have a good way to pick where to go or how to organize a gathering in towns we don’t know well.  FM to Go is the answer.

Still, I’ll register in case I need a last-minute flight — and it’s worth checking your offer to see if you’ve received something better. The…
