2018 Year In Miles

Another year of travel is now in the books.  2017 was my most traveled year yet.  This year I cut back on my travel — I was in school and had to cut back my work hours which meant less disposable income and time for travel.  I was only able to earn Alaska Mileage Plan MVP this year after multiple years as a Gold 75K.  With recent negative changes at the airline, I wasn’t feeling as loyal.  Let’s take a look at my numbers for this year.
