19 Great Places To Travel For Non-Drinkers – Huffington Post

Miles to Memories had the chance to be a contributor on this article.  It is a topic that isn’t thought about often but one that affects millions of people.  Let me know in the comments what you think of the choices.  Something worth sharing with any sober friends or family that you have.

Air Force captain with top-secret clearance, who disappeared in 1983, is discovered living in California – The Washington Post

Not really travel related per say.  Still a crazy story that I thought was worth sharing.

Judge Approves $142M Wells Fargo Fake Bank Accounts Settlement – Top Class Actions

This seems way too low for the kind of stuff Wells Fargo was doing.  They really need to start giving the banking industry much stiffer punishments for fraud etc. Most of the time no one ends in jail, just look at the financial crisis.

United Close-In Booking Trick Is Dead – Seat 31B

I never fly United but I know a lot of our readers do and many used this trick.  Sad to see it go.  United’s close in booking policy is among the worst in the business and now unavoidable.

  1. What makes you believe the AF Captain was a pilot? As an AF officer I read the article and believe he was likely an engineer or intelligence officer. Definitely not a pilot. While the airline industry calls pilots Captains in the military Captain is simply an officer rank. Most Captains in the military are not pilots.
