i've been flying since june so much i already have status on american ( :frown: )

dang!  :love:

i would rather still be with delta but the first couple trips this year only made sense with american so i just rolled w it

i get it. work travel will probably never be the same for me (2020 was supposed to be a big year) but i'm going to try to squeeze as much as i can out of my extended diamond status until January 2022.

my wife went on a girls trip pre-covid. sounded kinda desert-y with shitloads of dutch people. Obviously the number of Dutch people might be different but the desert wouldn't

It's spendy as far as Carribean islands go.  Nice place and squeaky clean but I'd probably pick one of the St. islands

aruba has its own endangered rattlesnake.

i think i made phil aware of this previously in this thread but he still didn't go work remotely from aruba.
we understand it better now that the american century is over and some of us sound more and more like serbs.

Astute. South of the hurricane zone. Definitely a plus if looking for now.

But smack dab in the middle of pirate routes.

When you visit Louisville, there's a new restaurant atop Churchill Downs, Matt Winn's Steakhouse. Reservations required but easily obtained until the track reopens. Highly recommend. Nothing like cashing a few big tickets at the window and rolling upstairs for some fine dining.

https://www.mattwinnsteakhouse.com/

We both had the petite filet. Apps were baked oysters with some fancy toppings. I also had french onion soup that was fantastic. My fiance had lobster bisque. The brussel sprouts were *chef's kiss*. $200 with tip and no booze.
