    The Australian dollar has risen 1.5 cents against the US dollar in the past week.

    That represents a saving of over $200 on the cost of a cabin for me and the kids.

    As long as the Aussie dollar keeps climbing like that I'm more than happy to wait a few more weeks before booking commences :D

    Hmm, the archive seems unreliable, it still doesn’t have the “7 months” update for the home page, it stops at June 27th (3 days before).
    So we can only infer that the Terms update was made after June 27th, otherwise it would probably have been crawled with the rest of the site that day.
    They say there’s a 3-10h delay between crawling and appearance on archive.org, so if the updated page doesn’t appear by tomorrow, it was just missed earlier.

    It still sloppy work and shows they just had to do it ,this and the fact they just stopped 70k Tv after 2 days means something went wrong.They even had 2 ‘meet the bands” contests by nobody even responded,so they are going though the motions with social media promotion and logistics but no real things are getting done.

    The header change cannot be accidental. I’m guessing they mean 2 payments of half 2 months apart, so that everyone has paid one month ahead of departure, instead of one week.

    It will be very interesting to see if Andy/70K make an appearance/promotion at Heavy Montreal in a few days, like in previous years.

    I was selected and did the Hammerfall interview in Houston on June 20. I entered through Facebook not the forum so there are no entries there. They advertise it on Facebook and Twitter as well.

    When I did the interview I was in contact with 70000tons.TV. They hired a local freelance videographer to film it. However, the video was provided to them on June 22 and I have yet to hear back from them regarding it. Edit... I just emailed my contact and they responded within minutes. According to them the video is finished and is waiting on 70K to post.

    I did post about our frustration on July 17 on the 70000 Tons Facebook page via a post comment and their response to me was "We get your frustration guys, we're on it!"

    Well at least they carried though,so here is something werid ,they posted a commercial video on June 26, but didn't post it in their videos section.So it doesn't show up in the app nor do you get a notification. Here is the link , . https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zdm-xihB9JA

    I was selected and did the Hammerfall interview in Houston on June 20. I entered through Facebook not the forum so there are no entries there. They advertise it on Facebook and Twitter as well.

    When I did the interview I was in contact with 70000tons.TV. They hired a local freelance videographer to film it. However, the video was provided to them on June 22 and I have yet to hear back from them regarding it. Edit... I just emailed my contact and they responded within minutes. According to them the video is finished and is waiting on 70K to post.

    I did post about our frustration on July 17 on the 70000 Tons Facebook page via a post comment and their response to me was "We get your frustration guys, we're on it!"
    Well at least they carried though,so here is something werid ,they posted a commercial video on June 26, but didn't post it in their videos section.So it doesn't show up in the app nor do you get a notification. Here is the link , . https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=zdm-xihB9JA


    Could have been worse, I was suspecting that the video was going to Rickroll me, but no...it the video as described. Pretty generic, but as advertised.

    I think these cancellation refund dates were slightly modified also.
    “until October 31, 2018 USD 100.00 per Passenger
    until November 30, 2018 25% of Grand Total Ticket Price
    until December 31, 2018 50% of Grand Total Ticket Price”

    So with 4 payments let’s say Public booking is at least a month away,then a public booker would have 3 months from their booking date to pay in full.So they could make the last payment on 25 November.

    I received a paper letter from the travel insurance company I use every year, with useless info.
    It's their way of saying: "Hey, every year you give us free money, but we noticed you haven't given us money yet this year. Is everything OK?"

    I get the insurance also, costs me about $80 but worth every penny for me. I had a gallbladder attack in 2016, was left in Jamaica on Saturday in the hospital, had to find my own way home after the ship left.

    Bob wrote:I get the insurance mostly for emergency medical or evacuation. The trip cancellation costs are minimal compared to medical expenses incurred in a foreign country. Take lots of credit. One lady in the hospital with me was being asked for $15K USD for additional tests. I’ve heard horror stories about people being stuck in Mexico where the hospital was demanding $20K USD before they would allow them to leave.
