We leave here September 6, so there's only two weeks to go! We're making good progress though and I'm confident we'll have everything ready by then, including replacing the carpet. That's the only real big job left on the list.
Spent some time yesterday booking a flight for our son. He's going to Europe with a couple of friends for three weeks in September, and I found a good deal on a flight advertised online through a Canadian travel website. I'm quick to applaud great customer service, and I am just as quick to let everyone know about terrible customer service!
Do not ever use www.redtag.ca ! Red Tag Vacations advertised a price online, the flights still had openings, their system allowed me to book it, sending a confirmation number and then....they send me an urgent email asking for $75 more! So I get on the phone with them, and they refused to honor their advertised price saying that the two airlines don't have a ticketing agreement. Of course I don't care about that, in fact it has nothing to do with me at all. All I want is the deal as they advertised it. Nope. Of course I ask for the manager and it was like talking to a post. No deal. Nice customer service huh?! NEVER use redtag.ca ...there are a lot of alternatives so you don't need to use a service that doesn't care about it's customers.
So, I ended up booking directly with the two airlines involved and got the deal for only $8 more than what Red Tag Vacations had advertised it for. Morons.
Yesterday I permanently installed our small 400W inverter up by Ruth's seat. This way she'll be able to run her small laptop with the MS Streets and Trips while we're driving Sherman.
Today I'm heading into Ottawa for lunch with my accountant, then off to my sisters to get her new computer set up for her. Then I'll do some running around, including looking for carper for Sherman. All I need is a small piece so should be able to get some top quality carpet for not much money. Then I'm meeting our son and going to play some billiards before taking him over to his softball game to watch his team is in the finals.
