On the Road Again


The car is just about all packed up.  Mike approaches the job of car loading like some kind of giant jigsaw puzzle and every little nook and cranny has something stuffed into it but nothing interferes with visibility.  We will leave tomorrow morning and arrive in Venice Saturday afternoon.  We plan to be back in Vermont in about three weeks time.  A lot of car travel, but we are kind of excited about spending some time in our own vacation home.  Most of what we are taking this time will stay down there.

I should get a air miles credit card because eventually the car trip will has lost its appeal.  Anybody recommend a good one?

I have a last minute load of laundry to do and I'll give the house a quick dust up, but I am pretty sure Mike is wishing we were on the road already.

  2. What's your starting point for this trip, and what's your destination?

    If you're military present or past, USAA's credit card is the best. We buy everything on it each month and pay it off, and every couple of years we go to Europe on the miles. Any airline that lands in the United States is eligible for use.

  4. If you would be using one airline for your travels, get that airline's card. Otherwise, a generic card will do. We have Mastercard World Points, and we use it for everything, and then pay it off each month, like Linda Myers.
    Happy travels!

  8. Venice, Fla.? I have another suggestion -- take Amtrak's autotrain from Lorton, VA to Sanford, FL. Not a bad haul, and saves you 900 miles of driving. When I go to FL I usually drive one way, take the train the other. Anyway, have a good trip!

    Btw, I second your emotion about Arkansas Patti's blog.
