This was kind of a spur of the moment decision for me (a few weeks ago). There have been quite a few good United fares lately, and I ended up booking two of them, which will put me at 22,619 total miles for the year on United. Since that is SO close to Silver status, I am going to go for it. I know it’s only silver, but it’s still my first airline status, so it’s exciting! It’s actually semi-convenient to get those last few miles anyway because of some other places I have to get to where flying United will be a very viable option. More to come on that later.


In honor of my first airline status, I am having a contest! Whoever can guess my trips the closest will win a prize (tbd – probably something cool from my cross country bike ride)! You can guess just the final destination, or you can try to guess all of the segments. Whoever is closer will win! I will give more hints throughout the next week if need be. Contest closes on 6/14/13 at 6pm EDT.



Trip 1:

*16,115 total miles

*6 segments, 1 open jaw

*leaving from ORD

*flying east


Trip 2:

*6504 total miles

*5 segments

*leaving from DTW

*flying east first, then west


Happy guessing!
