One weekend of MRs…and I’m an Internet celebrity! :)

Ok, maybe not an Internet celebrity, but during my mileage runs escapades this past weekend, I met Bobby, the author of the AAdvantage Geek blog over at BoardingArea, and he has mentioned me in a post today.

This was also the reason I didn’t get to post much over the weekend, as tired as I was from flying all weekend.  I am planning to share my experiences and lessons learned in another post, hopefully soon.  Overall, while it wasn’t the greatest experience ever, I did enjoy meeting people, experiencing multiple days of mileage running, and generally found the whole thing not to be as bad as I thought it would be.

The short version, I flew to and from ORD at the start and end of the weekend, and took 3 round trips between ORD and SFO within 48 hours (once routing through DFW!)…So basically, I “went” to California more times in one weekend than most people probably go in 2 years or more 🙂  All of this in the name of earning AA EXP (I did manage to get Gold over the weekend, and if the sweep of bonus DEQM happens soon, I should have AA Plat)…
