To Los Angeles!

I haven’t been to visit Dan and Megan for a while now and so I decided to check the fares on United from Baltimore to LAX. Over the summer they’d been pretty outrageous. So I checked and round-trip fares are currently $218! I called Dan and asked if I could come out the weekend of October 13-15. He said come on out, so I booked my flight. I leave Baltimore Friday evening, October 13 (I have no superstitions about flying on Friday the Thirteenth) and fly back home on the red eye, Sunday night, October 15.

I even managed to upgrade my outbound flight to first class. All for a mere $218! I should check the fares to Seattle!
