I have to think about it, in other words I don't want to spend the $ this week.
I have a few options that would allow me to stay for free close to the hotel. I just saw that I'm two nights away from renewing my platimun level again at Holliday Inns. I maybe able to get a free night with Wydnham program by switching my hotel prefference. I mapped it out from my house to the aca hotel is 345 miles, or 5 solid hours driving. Take in a few 10 minute delays and 1/2 hour stop - you have a 6 hour drive. So if I do this - I would leave Thursday evening. Us my points and grab a hotel by the state line for the night and then arrive at the hotel around 10 am Friday. I don't like spending fish $ on rooms - But I may have something to sell so that could lessen the cost.
Any body planning on leaving Thursday - I will have One son with me, and maybe my wife...
The future is what you plan for, life is what you get, enjoy it.
