Eleven thousand miles in a month?

travel_junkie_luggage_tagYesterday, we got our apartment lease squared away, and the movers arrived with all of our cargo from Cali. Other than having to remove the windows in the living room to get the couch in, we were able to have a fully stocked apartment within about three hours. We made a few trips to Meijer, IKEA, Bed Bath and Beyond, and Best Buy. I think we’ve got everything we need to settle in. So what am I doing now??? Waiting around in the MSP airport en route to Utah again.

I’ve been trying to calculate all of the miles I’ve traveled since December 21st (the day I left La Verne.) This is my rough estimate for ONE MONTH’S TIME!!!

La Verne, CA to Murray, UT…………………………680 miles via car 12/21

Murray, UT to Canton, MI…………………………..1800 miles via car 1/1 – 1/4

DTW to MSP………………………………………………600 miles via plane 1/11

MSP to SLC……………………………………………….900 miles via plane 1/11

SLC to MSP……………………………………………….900 miles via plane 1/16

MSP to DTW………………………………………………600 miles via plane 1/16

DTW to MSP………………………………………………600 miles via plane 1/19

MSP to SNA……………………………………………..1700 miles via plane 1/19

LAX to DTW………………………………………………2100 miles via plane 1/19

DTW to MSP…………………………………………………600 miles via plane 1/22

MSP to SLC…………………………………………………900 miles via plane 1/22

Total:11,380 MILES

In some ways, it’s a shame that I don’t get frequent flyer miles. But I’m not going to complain…the employee travel program is a wonderful perk. It’s saved me thousands of dollars just in one month. When I was at the airport gift shop the other day, I saw a luggage tag that said “TRAVEL JUNKIE.” I think I need to buy it.
