I love my cozy Lincoln Park apartment situated a few miles North of downtown Chicago. As I wrote out my rent check for November and December I couldn’t help but feel like I wasn’t doing a very good job justifying my big city rent. Over the last two months, exciting opportunity after exciting opportunity opened up to spend time with friends and family in road locations and before I knew it, my two months were completely booked up leaving exactly 2 days in my apartment to do laundry and water my poor thirsty plant.
A Road Warrior’s Rent is a scary number to calculate. Add November’s Rent to December’s Rent and divide by two. That is my apartment cost per day!
Total Days in November and December – 61
Flight Segments – 26
Total Mileage Flown – 31252
Longest Flight in miles – Frankfurt-Narita – 5836
Shortest Flight in miles – Washington Dulles-Baltimore Washington International – 45
Days at Home – 2
……and the Road Warrior Seal of Approval
Checked Bags – 0
The bottom line
As much as I love my Chicago apartment, I love travel even more so in actuality I wouldn’t change a thing. For me, November’s and December’s rent was money well spent!
