    Since Canarsie posted that, I'm sure it's true. If, on the other hand, someone else, like Gargoyle or Cholula for example, had posted it, I'd be very wary about the veracity...

    It's really an amazing store and Randy told it to us on the HOM Do last year. He is a true travel visionary.

    Randy worked for a company that owned retail clothing stores .. Chess King, but in HQ, not as a clerk in the store.

    Those that joined us on the "Come fly with me" DO to HOM heard the entire story in person.

    Do you remember when the FF programs had paper applications, like the Marriott ones you could get at any Marriott branded property? :) All part of the story.

    I sent an e-mail message shortly after I originally posted that inviting Randy Petersen to please clarify — both here and on FlyerTalk — what I posted.
    That would be more accurate than my recollection.

    Thank you.

    You weren't far off the mark.

    Yes, I can confirm, it is essentially true! :)
