TPOL Is 6exy 6 Years Old Today


If you thought TPOL was going away, you were wrong. TPOL turned 6exy 6 today. Last year, I showed the #1 posts from when I starting blogging (see Simply The Best: 5 Years of T-P-O-L). This time, I’m showcasing all my trips since birth. Years from now I’ll look back and have to remember why I went nowhere in 2020 (see not including any negative links). Looking back at these Trip Reports, I appreciate the shenanigans, the places I have been, and the places I have lived this past decade (see Happy New Year from TPOL: The Year & Hindsight Is 2020). I also appreciate everyone from the deplorables to the do-nothing Dems who read, comment, love and hate everything and anything about me.

6 more years!

    So basically, on overall average, you got a redemption value of 6.2 cents per point/mile used. Not too bad … keep up the good work & safe travels.
