Spirit Airlines, No Heart, No Care, No Value To Us!

When we can drive, we drive. But Vegas is just too far, so air was a choice!

APtravelnews-Jan. 12th, Bob and Barb “On The Road, Not the Air Again-Today I had a flight bought and paid for to attend the SHOT Show in Las Vegas. A couple of days ago, I picked up what turned out to be a flu-like virus. So I decided not to expose anyone else to this on an airplane or at the conference. I called Spirit Airlines and asked if I could change my flight to another time and date because of illness, I was routed over to India to work on this. I had a terrible time understanding “pigeon English” but in the end with supervisor in tow by this person (of many others) in charge of Spirits booking interests, was told I had NO options-period except to pay for a new flight, or take the flight no matter I’m sick, and no credit allowed to me. As I felt this is quite unfair, I just wanted my millions of lookers and readers to know about this. In other words; don’t expect anyone to assist you on an emergency basis at Spirit Airlines. They (at least the people detached from the American reality, except for the processing money they get) just could care less if you come aboard sick, blind, dumb or dead! I will never fly Spirit Airlines until they become human and not robotically on cruise-control with passengers reasonable requests!

Traditions Tin Fish Restaurant rocks with seafood!

APtravelnews-January 11th, Bob and Barb “On The Road Again” in Port St. Lucie, West, Traditions Square- One of the now many, Tin Fish Restaurants has a new owner, Rob Troup.  Rob is keeping with the excellent consistency that has been a hallmark of the Tin Fish ascendancy from one restaurant, to now several restaurants and going into the “full-metal-jacket” of franchising as well.

Over a couple of years now, we have dined at several of the Click-It Hot Restaurants and found the seafoods and fish to be in excellent taste and value. We just arrived home from Traditions Square Click-It Hot and from the shrimp, scallops, cod fish, Calamari (squid) their special spicy cole slaw, and mahi, mahi we are stuffed, but happy (we took home a good amount for tomorrow) campers! We also started off our meal with a solid cup of both corn and shrimp chowder, and clam chowder. Frankly, quite spectacular and I don’t offer that comment lightly! Do we recommend Tin Fish, a rousing “yes!”

Our delightful waitress delivered wonderfully tasty clam and also corn and shrimp chowders. The salad was quite beyond what we expected. It was so good we're going back just for this fine melange!

This salad was a meal in itself. It had everything a gourmet would love!

Barb loves to fish when she has an edge and doesn't have the whole day to hopefully hook a neighbor with shoulders enough for us to spar with! She has become an Al's lover too!

Bob's 17-pound bonefish caught with Richard Stanczyk, owner of Bud N Mary's Marina in Islamorada. The fish was appx. 39-inches and probably on 8-pound spin a record. However, we released the fish after this image was taken.
