Just 7 more sleeps

 As it's only 7 more sleeps until I fly to Salt Lake City for Rootstech I am revisiting my old Rootstech checklist
Two years down the track I find the list needs amending. Some items are going and others appearing. Please let me know if there's anything obvious that I've missed.

Geniaus' Rootstech Checklist

  • International return flight Australia to SLC - Booked.
  • Airport transfers in SLC - No worries - Shuttles/taxis can be organised at airport in SLC. 
  • Hotel Accommodation - Booked at the Marriott - most convenient hotel to Salt Palace and City Creek shops. 
  • Passport - Have a new one with lots of blank pages. 
  • ESTA (Visa) - Renewed.
  • Travel insurance - Renewed.
  • Conference Registration - Done.
  • Respond to invitations - Done.
  • Download the Rootstech App - Done, classes selected and friends made. If more people made their profiles public I would be able to make even more friends. 
  • Download Rootstech syllabus papers of interest - Ongoing Task. 
  • Compile list of Familysearch films to check in Family History LibraryIn progress in my Family Historian Database.

  • Purchase breakfast bars and healthy snacks for quick meals - have been to supermarket.
  • Start gathering up my Geneabling to wear at the event - do I really want to take this stuff? 
  • Organise my technology for the trip - That's for next week.
  • Pack my Bag - I need to know what I'm taking first. Maybe I need a packing list.
