Flights to Vancouver aren't that much. Why Florida or Georgia? Total shitholes. 

But...Jacksonville :(

Linus should move LTX 2019-future to the southeast temporarily for everybody else who can't afford to fly/drive to Vancouver.

Because flights to Miami is definitely cheap. This is excluding all the hotels, facility rentals, and logistics of shipping all of their equipment from Vancouver to Florida.

Changing location to Florida? All the way from Canada?  Ridiculous.


Why risk hot temperatures and bad weather and going all across US with equipment to make event fun (case toss, all the other stuff they did...)


If anything, it would make more sense to move the location somewhere close to Seattle or Portland... balancing act between convenience/proximity to big place and rent cost of location (i imagine it would be more expensive to rent something in Seattle than a smaller town)


Rent a truck/trailer for a weekend and/or some kind of camper van for LMG people and there's highway all the way. 

US people should be able to buy a plane ticket in advance and get the plane tickets cheap ... I imagine plane tickets bought weeks in advance would be cheap.


Still, would be hassle with customs... and would such event be considered working in US? do they need work visas for a few days? Yes, you may say it's just fan meetup but as soon as you have some kind of sponsor doing an event at the meetup I imagine that would classify as LTT working with sponsor or something like that...


What's the legal way to do something like that...

Well, that's in CAD, so flights from anywhere south of New York are roughly the same, maybe $100 cheaper on a good day. But yeah it still makes the most sense for them to keep it close by.
