However, those miles mean a lot to me, as I use them for other travel that we would not otherwise be able to afford. Of those 1,000,000+ miles, I have about 330,000 remaining. That means that I have used over 600,000 of them on flights. One family vacation to New York for everyone, 125K miles. Weekend get aways with the kids this summer, 100K miles. Occasional trips for Angie to meet me at various destinations, more miles. Tickets for family to come visit, more miles. All well spent, very well spent.
In fact, on business travel, particularly problem travel where weather, cancellations, delays, security, etc. are dragging me down, I can usually pick myself up thinking about how I can use those miles.
In addition to the above, I'm thinking about Angie and I getting away to Montreal later this year, or perhaps our European second honeymoon next Spring...or our invasion of all things Mickey in the imminent future.
What I am NOT looking forward to is spending miles on two tickets for my fellow Littlest competitors. Not that I don't want to see them, it would just mean I lost.
Good thing it isn't over yet.
