    Really? I would think that since y'all burn 500 milers (other than EXPs), it would not do the extra upsell.

    I hope there's a Stammtisch in ZRH when I'm there (even though I can't drink beer).

    A guy just called because there is a "sick" skunk in his yard. I told him let mother nature take care of it. He did not like that answer and wanted me to come shoot it. By the time I got there, the skunk moved to a wood pile. I said OK sounds good have a good night. He said well, are you going to scare him out and shoot him? :rolleyes:

    He could not understand why I would not scare him out, shoot him and take him away. :rolleyes: I told him if he sees it tomorrow to call day shift. I will let them deal with it. :D

    If someone can bring back People Express, maybe CO will come back in 25 years or so .

    May I ask, why by the river?

    I'm making my 1st trip to BKK soon & keep making different hotel ressies. At some point, I'll need to choose!

    Right now, I have the option of staying for free (using cat4 certs) at the Ren or paying $125ish/nt at the JW Marriott or doing cash & points at one of the many SPGs.

    Decisions..decisions.

    The formal definition is complex. So we prefer to think of ourselves as a drinking club with posting and flying problems.

    I'm hanging out with the married Argentine dude at Number 9's Happy Hour in DC. Nothing bad can come from this, right?

    Do yourself a favor and use the $ to buy a plane ticket to Another part of Thailand then use the free nights there. You couldn't pay me to go back to BKK.

    Have been seeing a few examples of it discussed on TOBB. It would not surprise me at all of it became a common practice.

    Proximity to family and other higher-use sites. And it's a nice transportation artery in a city which is EXTREMELY NOTORIOUS for traffic. Seriously, be prepared for it to take over an hour to get across town - minimum. Take the BTS (light rail) whenever you can.

    The JW is a very nice hotel and, like the Sheraton/Westin Grande Sukhumvit, more in the "downtown"/business district as opposed to some of the older/more tourist/historic parts of town. I don't know anything about the Renaissance, but I would definitely say that in this city, location is key - figure out where you're going to be going/spending time and if you can pick a place that is more convenient rather than less, it'll make a difference.

    I agree. Awesome country but not a city we enjoyed at all.

    Indeed. Lenten deprivation is also optional for Episcopalians. ;)
