Mileage Run by the Numbers

My 29,702 mile mileage run is over, and the numbers are in. In this post I am going to detail why I did this mileage run, how I found the flights that I did, and generally the logic behind the reasons for buying certain fares, how many points I actually collected, etc. I will also…

Out with the old, in with the new – BMW M2

I’ve always been a Japanese car guy. Sure, they’re torqueless, gutless cars but they’re also reliable, torqueless and gutless cars. I really like how vast the Japanese aftermarket parts industry is, even for discontinued cars.

July 2018: Hanoi, Vietnam

Right at the beginning of July Summer and I were sitting on my couch thinking, “I wonder where we can go this weekend….” Next thing you know, an hour later we had flight tickets, hotels, and a visa applied for to go to Hanoi! Thankfully Vietnam had opened up single entry visas again, as my…
