but if I'm doing LGA-DFW-EGE using avios, does it make sense?
Is it not worth using avios because its not direct?
Not a terrible value, especially considering you save yourself a 2.5 hour ride from den
Life isn't about checking the boxes. Nobody cares.

Yeah, thanks!
Its 25k round trip, but almost no availability for the summer!
How bad.
Love me or hate me. I still love you.

They actually fly direct during ski season, plus that puts you there for the main attraction, which is the skiing.

How far away are the fires raging in Colorado? Even if it's far away they are pretty big. It may be in the air and not to healthy especially for young children, older people, or asthmatics.

Last year I went to RI with my wife and baby for a few days. It's not too far from NYC (4hrs) and it's quite relaxing. There's enough to do there for a few days. Newport is beautiful. You can visit the Touro synagogue, the beautiful mansions, cliff walks and chill on the beach etc. Maybe even hop over to Martha's Vineyard. I loved it.
