Up Coming Stuff

Wow, I can’t believe it has been a week since I have posted anything. To say that things have been crazy here would be and understatement of epic proportions! I have a lot of stuff in the hopper including reviews on the following products: Zuca Sport Pro Rolling Suitcase Tom Bihn Co-Pilot Carry on bag …

The Redeye

(While this is a poor satire, I extend my apologies to poet, author and NPR contributor Andrei Condrescu) Nachtflug. It sounds fitting in German. Italian and French make it too pretty. Volo nottore or vol de nuit sound romantic and even vaguely appealing. Let’s call it what it is. The redeye. A punishment conceived by …

Humangear Gotubbs Review

Last year I got the opportunity to play with the Humangear Gotoobs and I found them to be clever, useful and also pretty darn cute. When I talked the them again and got the chance to review the Gotubbs, I was excited. Yes, they are just containers and I know that it is pitiful to …

Southwest Airlines and the Extra Mile

So, while this is not a surprise to anyone in my bitstream, I am a dork. My latest demonstration of this is my inability to care for my brand new stuff. My sweet, precious, long-suffering wife gifted me a Kindle for Christmas. The VERY first trip that I took with it, I managed to leave …

Getting the Message

Good to see that even home decor places are getting out the message about not checking luggage! From a Z Gallerie in the mall on a recent trip out with my better half. At least I assume they are talking about luggage! One track mind! 😉

Frequent Parker Program BNA

On a recent trip, I was riding on shuttle bus back to my car tucked away in long-term parking. The bus driver was helpful, talkative and considerate (when do you EVER get all three?) and handed me a card on the Nashville Airport’s new Frequent Parker Program. She gave me some tips on where the …

Long Week

OK, the pirate nutcracker is an almost complete non sequitur to anything that I might actually write about…but it just made me smile! Something about the eye patch and that he is holding his own little soldier nutcracker was silly enough to be enjoyable. Likely I am just loopy from too many days on the …

Flight Updates by Text

AA4295 gate change. Dept Gate at ORD now Gate G11 JEFFREY. If you have the option to select text message notification for flight information you should ALWAYS avail yourself of the opportunity. The above message came to me from Orbitz and I consistently find that these messages are 5 and sometimes 10 minutes ahead of …

Chapter 11 Airlines

Tomorrow I make my first flight on the “fiscally restructuring” American Airlines. It is one of those weird, three corner trips that meetings in multiple cities will spawn. Because of it I will take off and land at O’Hare 4 times in 3 flights. Don’t ask. I do not know what to think of this …

American Airlines Wine Club?

OK, diversification is good, particularly if you are holding your creditors at bay but I have to say that an American Airlines wine club seems like a bit of a stretch to me. Granted, you might be a maniacal oenophile with a penchant for airline points so this could be a good deal for you…but …
