    Listening to the podcast right now and I have to disagree with two thing (and I’m not even done with the podcast yet! haha)
    Thank you Joe to for the pro-stick shift vote. Not that I’d drive sick in Chile, but in Europe you’re fine and the premium for automatic is so high that it’s just not worth it. at all.
    Also found Dia’s comments on Trevor going for Hyatt status to be a bit condescending. It’s not for everyone, for sure, but to basically say that anyone who goes for it is a fool is a bit extreme. We just took advantage of what I think was your favorite underrated hotel status perk: 4PM checkout at our hotel in Chicago, which let us enjoy our whole second day in the city without worrying about packing up early. Plus breakfast for 4, which was $100+tip, not that we would’ve spent that, but we would’ve spent at least $50 somewhere, and this place is delicious. And the room rate was $130. When we are consistently using perks like that, it’s worth it to stick with Hyatt.
