Year End Mileage Run
At year's end I was three flight segments short of maintaining my 1K status with United Airlines -- earned by either flying 100,000 miles or 100 flight segments in a calendar year. As of December 19 I was at 97 segments.
So today I flew up and back to Reno solely to stay a 1K. 2 segments up (LAX to SFO to RNO) and 1 segment back (RNO to LAX).
I got there around 2:30 p.m. and left on an 8 p.m. flight. That was just enough time to have a meal in the Coffee Shop at the Silver Legacy casino and to play a little blackjack. Fortunately I won more than my airfare at the casino -- and I used points to pay for my rental car and parking at LAX.
So it was a fun way to end the year, even though it was c-o-l-d COLD in Reno.
I'm going to bed soon because tomorrow is a big day. Anyone who regularly reads this blog should be able to predict I'm spending tomorrow in Pasadena at the Grandaddy Of Them All.
