In the Travel News, you may be able to bring those liquids on a plane again soon and the number of flyers at Sacramento International is rising again, plus the strike at Air France is dragging on, and if you are traveling internationally, you need to be informed.
Ed Perkins, our trusty consumer advocate from Ashland, Oregon, is on hand to opine about a variety of topics in the news, including a new audit to make sure the airlines are delivering on their promises when it comes to Frequent Flyer programs. Ed also talks with us about the new gratuity envelopes in Marriott Hotel rooms, gives kudos to a recent Travel Guys guest, the Whiteface Lodge in the Adirondacks, for dropping their resort fees. And finally, Ed has some thoughts on the Scottish independence vote, just to round out the segment.
Jack London State Historic Park is the site of many great special events. Just off Hwy 12 north of Sonoma, the park is just a short drive away and when you hear about activites like the Ragtime Romp at Jack’s Place which is part of the Wine Country Ragtime Festival, you’ll want to plan a visit soon.
The Sacramento ballet has a new leader and an exciting new schedule. Caty Solace is the new lady on the block and she joins us for our entertainment segment to tell you about the upcoming season.

Mark’s Travel Underwear Update
Mark has been testing some new travel underwear and has his report on today’s show. The verdict: 4 out of 5 stars. Comfortable, washed well, dried well, all good. Materials don’t allow the skin to breathe as well as cotton, but that was a minor issue. All in all, Mark recommends these undies for trips where packing fresh underwear for everyday isn’t practical.
