Last minute trip
And with this result, it means I'm headed to Dallas next weekend. Crazy.
It started with me thinking, "Huh, I wonder if my brother might be able to scrounge up tickets to a World Series game down there and if flights are reasonable." Both rhetorical questions could be answered in the affirmative, although the latter took a little bit more looking--and buying blindly from Hotwire--since the airline I was going to fly on doubled their round trip rates between Tuesday and tonight. Raised costs in the intervening days had been my big concern, but I wasn't going to book until the game was a certainty. Even when the Rangers led by a likely insurmountable number of runs, I avoided booking. Ultimately I paid less than I expected, although I'm getting back a bit later than I had hoped.
It'll be fun to go to the game and see my nephew, who will have nearly doubled his age since I saw him last. I expect it will also be nice simply to get away for a few days too. What a year of unexpected activities and travels.
