Hi everyone. I've been knocking the idea of a trip with my best friend in August for three nights. Problem is, I can't reach her until June 24 because she is teaching in the far north and does not have phone or Internet service. Now I'm wondering if I should just book everything and go on my own even if she can't come. It would be three nights, four days. I've never been away from my kids (7, 7 and 13) or hubby for a solo trip. It's over a holiday weekend and I'm sure dd could take care of the twins during the workday on Friday. I have a four day pass in my drawer, a coupon for air that would put my flight at $400 cad and points to spare. What are your thoughts? Book and go regardless or sit tight and see if friend can come? I'm going mid October if that adds anything to the discussion. My options are to book now on points, book once I find out if she can come and hope rooms are available on points or book a room through CR and pay cash (flexibility is the plus in this scenario). Really not sure what to do.
