Four Seattle Mariners minor league players didn’t want to wake up early for their team’s road trip to New Mexico. Rather than get up at 3:00am, they planned to catch a flight with American Airlines.

When the flight didn’t work out, they decided to take an extremely pricey Uber ride to meet up with their team.  Continue reading Baseball Players Take $683 Uber Ride To Game

Lucas and I got home late last night from Pittsburgh. It should’ve been a quick one hour flight.

We were scheduled to fly at 5:50 PM from PIT, getting us into New York’s LaGuardia at 7:14 PM. When we arrived at the gate, it seemed busy but nothing unusual. After standing around for a few minutes, I noticed that the screen said now boarding for a 2:45 flight which was switched to 5:30!

This got me curious. If the flight before ours was delayed, then our flight most likely would be too. Continue reading Cancelled Flights- Lucas & I Get Home on AA Flight That Doesn’t Really Exist!

Last week I mentioned that Lucas and I were going away on a Father- Son Trip.

We got back later last night from a visit to Pittsburgh, PA. I know it doesn’t sound like a glamorous destination but we had a great time. There’s lots of excellent museums, it’s a great sports town and those bridges make for awesome photos!

I plan to write a bit about our trip in some upcoming posts. Continue reading Odd Checked Luggage- A Can of Beer, Free Shake Shack, Queen Doesn’t Need Passport, Wyndham Card Retention, Flight Delay Due To Pee, Screwdriver In A Carry-On & More- The Rehash!

An American Airlines flight was supposed to fly from Los Angeles to Washington, DC last weekend. The flight ended up with a long delay for a bizarre and smelly reason.

Can I Bring A Screwdriver In My Carry-On Bag?

It’s always interesting to hear about the odd or dangerous items that people try to bring in their carry-on bags. I usually come across them  thanks to the TSA’s Instagram account. (Curious to find out about some of the items? Search TSA on my site!)

If you’re unsure if an item is allowed to fly, you could ask the TSA through Facebook Messenger. Continue reading Can I Bring A Screwdriver In My Carry-On Bag?

We love experiences which include animals while traveling.

In 2012, I wrote about My Top 5 Animal Encounters. It could probably use an update with A Visit to the Abu Dhabi Falcon Hospital being added to the list.

One day I’d love to pay a visit to see the swimming pigs in the Bahamas. Tragedy struck these special pigs a few months back. Who knows if regulations will change, stopping tourists from interacting with the pigs in the future.

I came across another interesting animal experience on Corsica France but it might be wise to keep your distance. Continue reading Sunbathing Cows on the Beach in Corsica, France- Don’t Take Selfies!

Did I Get A Barclays Wyndham Rewards Card Retention Offer?

Last year I received what I’d consider a fair retention offer for my Wyndham Rewards credit card. Thanks in part to the offer, my Wyndham Rewards account now has enough points for 5 free nights.

When the $69 annual fee posted, I once again had to make a decision- do I want to keep or close the card? Continue reading Did I Get A Barclays Wyndham Rewards Card Retention Offer?
