Do the Math for two trips, which I believe is a first:
  1. Trip to Calgary, AB (6n, Banff Aspen Lodge, daily breakfast, SUV rental; RR)
  2. Trip to Cancún, México (6n, Isla Mujeres Palace, $1,500 resort credit; GOS)

Do the Math would seem to apply itself well to the Distance Rule. Let's see..

Distance between Los Angeles and Calgary: 1,194 miles
Distance between Los Angeles and Cancún: 2,109 miles [1]

Logic would therefore suggest Cancún is more expensive; therefore, he should add here.

Isaac adds...

...I got nothin', folks. Maybe the SUV rental is what made the difference?

Interestingly, the SP podia are back to their traditional straight line today. So far this season they've been in an inverted V.

It was almost worth the disappointing first half just for this! That's two good showings in a row for the ol' Plinko Board... one more and the slump's officially over!

Money Game:
2015 Dodge Dart SE (2L, 6AT, conv grp, paint/fabric prot; GOS)

(By the way, can anyone confirm or deny a report I heard that Chrysler, now under Fiat ownership, was doing away with the Dodge brand by the '17 model year? That seems odd to me, especially since the brand seems to be undergoing a bit of a resurgence lately... but then, they did kill of Plymouth when it was similarly experiencing a PT Cruiser-inspired revival...)

Bonus! If he doesn't do something silly (i.e., pick 19, 20, or 43), he's got a 4:5 chance of finding the back half...

Just nine bucks short of hitting this setup for every possible penny, too! (Picking 65 rather than 56 would have done it.) That's a great way to log Money Game's first tick in the W column for Season 43, certainly.
