Hope we'll get some sort of TR.

Don't hold your breath; what do you think this is, OMAAT? :)

Just need to lean forward.
At the same time. And call out so they know to lean also?

I'd rather the private mini cabin on the A side.
Can always eat the meals together anyway.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

Not necessary, IME.

Just have to throw the tooth brush from the amenity bag right over into the opposite seat. Gets the job done just fine. No need for calling out.

Lol!

Then she will throw back the toothpaste, and then the plane will have to make an emergency landing to stabilize the situation :)

Didn't say they were elderly. I just implied they weren't 25 (which they're not).

Heck, even at 25, 12 different segments, over 25,000 miles, four destinations, in less than two weeks, would be tiring. Fun probably, but tiring.

But, hey, if they're up for it...


Who do you think taught Dan to love traveling? OK he added in the first class luxury part but we have always traveled. We have taken our kids all over the USA including Hawaii, Canada, Bahamas, Costa Rica , Puerto Rico... 

My husband  has a hard time sitting still and no one can keep up with his hiking.  Dan has called me many times saying Abba is crazy we can't hike up that mountain.  Killer Bees, Rattlesnakes, and  getting a H2 stuck in a remote area and being rescued by plane are only a few of the adventures we have been through. 

Last time we did Europe in a week staying mostly on overnight train cars. We once did the road to Hana in a convertible in 1 1/2 hours.  This was not our first choice of itins but by the time the wedding date was set this was the best that we could pull together. I will get home and sleep for days, but my husband will be at work the next morning.

Thanks for all your help, this is our first vacation as a couple in over a decade!

But you're an "older couple" ::)
Enjoy. And we expect aTR quicker than your son delivers

Epic first post, summarily dismissing AJK's baseless concerns for your well-being :)

I truly hope you enjoy. Though I'd love to know how long it takes you to recover!

P.S. Overnight cars are often significantly more comfortable than even First Class cabins ;)

There is no proof that this wasn't Dan writing with a pseudonym

Lol, I had nothing to do with the post.  Though I'll have to find out which of my brothers alerted my mother to it...

"Dan" did not write my posts,  I even needed one of my younger sons to help me quote ( he left) so I can respond but not quote those who don't believe I wrote it.  I even have a hard time calling him "dan".
