Join the debate — everyone else is!

Well, if there’s one thing this newsletter isn’t, it’s boring! We’ve had several posts that blew past the 200-comment mark this week — like Monday’s story about the guy who relieved himself in the pool on a cruise — which means you have a lot to talk about.

And that’s great, because this site is all about you.

Before I forget, I wanted to mention how grateful I am to our underwriter Tripinsurance.com, which helps you save 40% or more off similar coverage from other comparison sites. It’s easy to buy and offers 24/7 claims service. Tripinsurance.com also offers awesome customer service.

Later this week, we’ll be embarking on the next leg of our Away is Home family roadtrip. You can follow us on our site, on Facebook or Twitter. We driving up through North Carolina and into New York next week. We’ll have a full report soon.

In my regular transportation safety feature, I ask the question: What’s so funny about the TSA? If you think you know the answer, stop by and leave a comment or vote in the poll. This article also appeared on the Huffington Post.

Here’s another hot debate: The guy who thought he was covered because he took a screen shot of his airline ticket transaction. (He wasn’t.) Also, are airline fees anti-family? And are airline miles a good way to say “I’m sorry”?

That’s it for this week’s newsletter. Personally, I can’t wait for this next part of our Away is Home adventure, and I hope I get to see many of you along the way. Even if I don’t, I’m sure I’ll catch up with you online.
