Well if you are a miles & point addict it’s okay. There are plenty of us out here. You are definitely not alone. Many of us mile and point hounds converse and strategize in forums like Milepoint or Flyertalk. But there are actual conferences, seminars, meetups and megados for people in the mile and point world like us. These conferences are a great way to meet fellow travelers and connect with people of like-mind who do what you do every day.
