Well I have some time off, so I booked a cross-country sleeper trip on Amtrak. WAS-SFO, 22K points. Not too bad. Flying DL back, which will put me over the top for PM.

I made progress on packing. I have most of my clothes and such packed. I need to pack my carry-on and all of that, but at least I made some progress!

It seems like I used to do a pack a day, but I've cut back.

Happy Thorsday eve.

Made it to Diamond in my first year of flying Delta!

Was status matched from ExP on AA to PM last year and haven't looked back. Anything I should be expecting from a DM besides being able to FINALLY board before those pesky GM's that like to push and shove during SKY boarding?
