Frenquent Flyer Specials
Our friends Michael and Lisa are getting married in Argentina, this September. Michelle and I are trying to rack up our Delta SkyMiles for a free trip. Here are two frequent flyer specials that I came across:
Delta SkyMiles American Express cardholders can earn double miles on all purchases between March 15 and April 15. You must register your card in order to earn miles. For more information or to register, visit American Express' website.
United Airlines College Plus Program
It being Sping Break, college students should know about United Airlines College Plus Program. Students who travel during academic breaks can not only earn miles toward a free trip, they can receive 10,000 miles for free upon graduation. For more details, go to United's College Plus site.

For you chocolate lovers out there, I came across a press release at PR Web about a new city guide to Hershey, Pennsylvania, www.HersheysBest.com. I was excited to visit the site, but sadly disappointed.
If you want to see some chocolate, visit Hershey’s site.

Kayaking in the Everglades
Last week, my friend Pancho (more about Pancho later) was asking me about kayak trips. By accident, I found a good article at WetDawg (the adventure water sports site) about an overnight kayak trip in the Florida Everglades. The article chronicles a 3-day canoe trip from Flamingo to Everglades City.
"Florida Bay was as smooth as glass. Cape Sable lay off to our right. On shore began a stretch of more than 20 miles of uninterrupted natural beach, by far the largest preserved stretch of ocean front property in the mainland Southeast."
You can read the 3-page article, see photos and find links to maps and outfitters on WetDawg's site.
To find more info about the Florida Everglades call 305-242-7700 and ask for a Wilderness Trip Planner.
