So if you don’t want to pay for a test but fly with me how does that help me?  They just need to mandate for everyone or this is just useless.

The announcement is a promising sign, anyway. (I'm still re-booking those four European trips I had booked prior to the Covid emergency declaration - just re-did one this past weekend after the airline cancelled the flights.)

Some travellers are getting really, really desperate - in Hawaii they arrested two tourists for offering an airport screener $3,000 to bypass Covid screening (https://www.washingtonpost.com/travel/2021/02/18/hawaii-honolulu-airport-bribe-covid/?itid=hp_travel).

If you have that kind of money why not just go to some other island? There are surely some South Pacific islands without quarantines.

House rental bookings on OBX are going crazy again this year.  Add to that the house sales market has been flying for the past 12 months.  My family has a small 3 bedroom house on the sound side that was given such a crazy high offer that we sold.

We plan to put our little Myrtle Beach house up for sale soon. Between low interest rates and families wanting a vacation place where they can be shielded from other folks seems the prices are going up.

Ali - what's a massive bolt-on ?

The last time I flew Southwest was after staying up all night playing blackjack at the Luxor in Vegas...I wound up seated next to a bottle-blonde lady with massive bolt-ons under a tank top.  I conked out shortly after takeoff and discovered when the flight attendant roused me on approach to LAX that I had fallen asleep with my face planted on the lady's chest.  I was mortified but she didn't seem to care.  So much for open seating.

There was an article in the paper the other day saying Wilmington just had their highest number of homes sold in any January in history. Low interest rates and low inventory make for a sellers market.

we looked at renting a beach house/condo along the NC coast, all the way down to Charleston, this summer.  Prices were insane.  A 3-bedroom sleeping up to 6 generally ran around $4k for a week.  It's cheaper to fly to Florida and rent a place in Ft. Meyers.

Apparently United was the launch customer for that version of triple seven - 26 years ago.  Time flies (if nothing else does).

Oh good! I was worried about what would happen if the cruise ships got a reputation as places where illness spread out of control to all people on the ship.  :?
