After a very long day traveling back to Portland, Lisa and I were home for 12 hours (6 of those for sleeping) to do some laundry, catch up on mail and addressing other little house things. And then we were back on the road, driving south to Eugene for a concert and fighting through the typical traffic slog. We stayed two nights at the Holiday Inn using our IHG points to take advantage of their Point Breaks Rewards — we were able to book each night for only 5,000 points. The rooms are normally 25,000 points per night, so this was an incredible value for a short vacation from our vacation. Alas, we returned home and I went back to work early Monday morning and back to the routine – at least for a couple of weeks before our next trip!
