I'll pay you for a MR out of ORD on AA this weekend

Seriously. It's crunch time for me and I need the miles like a crack addict needs a fix. Unfortunately the local dealer can't dispense EQMs. But I'm not talented in finding MR's and quite frankly, I don't care where I go. I've looked at ord-lax/anywhere on the left coast with ITA and haven't come up with anything exciting. My creativity has fallen by the wayside and I can't come up with anything that's really a run (I mean, $600 for a sfo run isn't cool).

So, the rules for me are:

1) I can leave as early as Friday evening/Saturday morning. Heck, I can leave whenever. I just have to be back for work on Monday.
2) I don't care where I go. Really, I don't.
3) I need 4600 miles. Actually, I need 4597 miles for EXP requalification.
4) This is your chance to get even or even be just plain cruel. This is your chance to put me through hell and the shoe carnivals of the worst airports in the US. This is your chance to mock me as I run from gate to gate with narrow connection times while you're at home with a drink. If you can find some RJ hell for me (10 segments - whatever), I'll do it.
5) If you can find some international run, I'm cool with that too.

As for payment, I'll be more than happy to send a small gift or two from Chicago.

TIA, DG

$350-$400 tops. Ideally as cheap as possible.

I came up with 4534 routing ORD-STL-DFW-BWI-DFW-STL-ORD, but that still leaves you short. It priced out at $380 I think.

going to GUA is sexy, but tropical storms aren't. It'd be hard to explain to the bossman at work that I'm in GUA.

Since $$ is not allowed I will be sending you some huge cookies instead.

I was hoping to find a run for you through BOS, so you could bring me food from the Berghoff restaurant in Chicago

Get me through BOS with 2+ hours for me to exit, meet you for a beer and hand you takeout from Berghoff's and you've got yourself a deal.

And for $52 roundtrip (less with AAA), you can take Amtrak to Ann Arbor and back, get TravelAuto to take you to DTW, and THEN leave the beer.

On second thought, maybe you should wait until TravelAuto takes you back to the train station to hand out the beer.
