What Am I doing?
This week has been a complete blast. On the blog front, traffic has been steadily increasing and I got to write one of my favorite posts ever, Churning Credit Cards For Travel and Hotel Rewards. It was a monster, 2,400 word post talking about how I am collecting hundreds of thousands of credit card rewards points this year, which I’m pretty stoked about. I’ve already got some others who are joining me in my travel hacking ventures, and I’m excited to see how they use their rewards!
I also did something this week that I’ve never done. I went snowshoeing and climbed a flippin’ mountain! It was absolutely epic! It was part of our new Christmas tradition to draw names and buy an “experience” gift for that person. I took my brother-in-law out to a sweet hiking trail, and we snow shoed up almost 2,000ft. in elevation to a lake. The most striking thing about the entire trip was the fact that when there weren’t people around, it was absolutely SILENT! I’d definitely do it again, but next time I want to bring a sled and go down the most epic hills of all time. Good thing I have life insurance!
