Traveling is something I love to do and try to do as often as possible. I try to fly for cheap or free anytime I go anywhere, and find the best deal possible on cars, hotels and attractions. I’ve used a lot of strategies from credit card sign up bonuses to earning frequent flyer miles through flying and spending on credit cards, and following airfarewatchdog, cheapdfw and theflightdeal on twitter for the best deals on travel. I don’t always have a destination in mind or dates, rather, I try to be flexible on both. Also, living in Oklahoma City (OKC) metro area means I have to be somewhat flexible to flying out of Dallas (DFW and DAL) or Tulsa (TUL) if need be.

Places I’ve Been

I keep track of all of my flights on FlightRadar24. It’s a nice social media site for keeping track of time spent in the air.

I have been to:

  • 84 airports
  • All 50 US states
  • 31 National Parks
  • 19 countries
  • 3 continents
