This was my first mileage run–cum–long weekend vacation with Sarah. Sure it took almost 12 hours to get from one place to another, but it netted us over 6,000 miles for about $215. The only bummer was that it required a train trip to Philadelphia and a bus ride back to New York.
We found an even better deal to Portland in June, from LaGuardia to Portland, via Houston again, for $170. Wow! Too bad I couldn’t route through LA and had a chance to see my parents for a few hours. Oh well.
