My wife and I recently completed a vacation in the Twin Cities area. We attended the Diabetes Expo on Oct 15 and had a dinner with fellow type 1 diabetics later that day. On Oct 16 we attended a meet-up with 10 online type 1 diabetic friends and some spouses at the MOA (Mall Of America). It was so much fun! I wish we could attend meetings like this every year in different parts of our country, Canada and the UK. It is so expensive though. Some of us online friends are in the planning stages of a meet-up in Pennsylvania, perhaps in Allentown. It would probably be in the spring.

Here is a picture of the type 1 meet-up in MN. My wife seems to be sliding her chair back on the right hand side. Maybe she did not want to be in the picture. Lol! I am closer to the table, to her right. 10 of the 13 people are type 1 diabetics.
