By the Numbers: January 2013 Travel

New York New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas

New York New York Hotel & Casino in Las Vegas

I’ve decided to keep track of just how many miles I rack up and how many nights I spend on the road. Between all the hats I wear, and all the roles I fill, I know it’s plenty.

January wasn’t a busy travel month. I enjoyed time at home in the aftermath of the holidays, and there wasn’t a whole lot on the calendar. Let’s take a look back at January.


  • SEA/LAS/SEA  – 1,736 miles (I was in Las Vegas for NMX)
  • SEA/SMF/OGG/BLI/OGG/SEA – 11,023 miles
  • SEA/PHX/PDX/KOA/SJC/SEA – 7,812 miles

Total miles flown in January 2013:  20,571

Total hotel nights:  11
