It’s crunch time now. No more planning and preparing, I have got to start actually packing and getting ready to go out the door.
I don’t have a hotel room yet. How sad is that? I’ve waited until the FRR on Tueday, but that isn’t the problem, it just explains why I started so late. Hotels on the beach in July simply cost more than they do in April and my bids on Priceline have been too low so far. I started at $40 for a nice 3-star, which is what I’ve paid before. I’ve gone up in price each day, bidding $63/night yesterday. I think I’ll hit the acceptance level today. The worst case scenario, I’ll have to pay retail and that’s not so bad.
