Yeah friends and family don't get why I'm into this points and status game. Meanwhile I'm going to be gold (or gold equivalent, looking at you Hyatt with your made up words) with each of the big hotel chains by January 1 thanks to challenges and the like Being away from home sucks, but it's not like we've got the choice. Might as well make the most of it. Now if I could just talk United or Delta into giving me one...

I understand :) just my plat recently as well. Hoping to make Delta Plat soon

Dont be. Embrace it.

My friends and family get it when I upgrade them or travel for free 😂

Yep, for that reason I think my SO is starting to get it. In an interesting position where very few of our friends are able to take significant vacations like us 🐠 - it even feels weird to me that this is a thing I've gotten into

Yeah just wait till you get to SPG100.. that’s when you really know your life sucks
