I travel a lot for business. For years I’ve been consistent in staying at Marriotts (100+ nights a year) and enjoyed a lot of fun vacations courtesy of lots of Marriott points.
But I haven’t stayed in a Marriott since buying our Airstream. And that’s the point. In 25 days Julie, Alfred and I have traveled over 3,000 miles with our trailer. Much of that business related. Together. By that metric, it’s working.
No more chasing hotel and airline points. Strangely I haven’t even thought about getting on a plane in nearly a month. I used to fly four times a week. No more TSA pre-pass (where I pay a fee to the Federal government to avoid being harassed) needed in an Airstream.
What’s this got to do with vacuum cleaners? Well what better to spend 92,500 Marriott points on than a cordless vacuum cleaner and mop all in one – the Dyson Hard D56. Amazing! This has replaced our Swiffer and broom.
It has an optional charging station that I have mounted on the bedroom wall using six 3M Command strips, each rated for 5 lbs. I attached it to the wall in Gothenberg, Nebraska, and it has stayed put for over 300 miles to Anita, Iowa.
Worth it? Absolutely. This thing works. It has eliminated two other things and neatly stores out of the way.
