I'm a loyal guy. Like, really loyal. At least when it comes to travel . . .
Years ago, I devoted my allegiance to Starwood Hotels . . . and to USAIRWAYS . . . 90% of my travel is with these two companies. I always try to maintain a balance of 100,000 points with each. Because, like, you never know when the mood is going to strike . . .
And, this morning, the mood struck for some fun in the sun. The Ocean . . . afternoon baseball at beach-side dive bars . . . Corona Lights poolside . . . One of my favorite ways to spend a day is in a pair of board shorts . . . nothing but a room key and credit card in my pocket . . . trolling the beach . . . jumping between the ocean and the beach bars . . . Hard to beat.
So . . . this morning I checked the always fickle weather in South Florida . . . mid-80's and sunny this weekend. I checked out USAIR flights . . . round trip for 35,000 miles . . . I pulled up my SPG account . . . three nights on the beach for 30,000 points. 5 minutes later I was fully booked. Total free roll . . .
It ain't Vegas . . . but it won't be bad . . .
