re: Credit Card Rewards and Points Discussion - quadfest
My wife and I just got back from South Africa - did business class there and back. We had the same problem figuring out how to use points. (Had about 270K UR and 90K MR) We ended up using a service that does all the legwork for finding the award flights, and you pay him $100 per person. T...

re: Traveling to South Africa-need flight assistance - quadfest
Just got back earlier this week. The trip was amazing. Flight into Kruger is pretty easy and the airport is small, hop on a federal air shuttle is a breeze. I will say, our agent set up the flight and she reconmended atleast 4 hours before international. We landed in JNB at 2pm, and got internat...

re: Need rec for a carry on booksack - quadfest
Ever decide on anything? My wife and I are going to South Africa in May so we've been reading about bags and what not. I have read quite a bit on Minaal, Osprey, tortuga, and Timbuk2. I may pull the trigger on the Minaal - seems like a great way to pack and travel and use regularly for business a...
