I’ve been on vacation for the last week or so, but I’m back now, and so it’s time to catch up on the most recent posts from PWaC.

  • train-iconHow I spent 350,401 miles and points, which is approximately what we spent on our recent vacation trip
  • One of the tricks that we used for the trip is using Autoslash to save a ton on rental car costs.  It cut our rental car costs by about 25%, to a total of $113 out the door for a week!  When we picked up our car, the lady at the front desk said “You got a really great deal on this – I’ve been renting these cars for $100 A DAY!”
  • Checking historical Amtrak delays – while trying to figure out if I would miss my connecting train.  In a bit of foreshadowing, I will let you know that it did NOT turn out well for me…



  • We made a trip out to Belle Fourche, South Dakota, to the Geographic Center of the United States.  Little did we know when we got there that it wasn’t the REAL geographic center of the United States!

You got a great deal-I’ve been renting these for $100 DAY!
