I will definitely drink as much Woodford as I can.
It worked out to about 2.9cpMQM. 2-3 seating MDW-ATL (and let's be honest, not getting that upgrade) and 2-3-2 on the TATL. So saved $180 to forgo exit row seats and risk 1/5 middles on the domestic and 1/7 middles on TATL. Still have the rest of the day to change my mind.

once DL schwacked the ability to SDC from F to D1 a couple years ago the schlep kind of lost its luster, but I’ve just gotten to the point where I can doze well enough with a Woodford and a window seat for ~4 hours, shower and change in the SkyClub (JFK/ATL/DTW) or after an early hotel check-in, power through Mon afternoon, crash by ~2000, and hit the ground running on Tues morning

I know, I should have my head examined

I should rent your house. Had an AA award flight on hold but decided not to go because Dr. P has to to work and can't make the trip. Go Hoos!

During a recent Ryder Cup, folks were getting north of $10k a week for some of the nicer houses nearest the course. Crazy money.

It's not too late. There are hotel rooms to be had, even in convenient locations, and the prices aren't even close to the rates for SuperBowl.
