    I swear it was $1500 yesterday? I am not complaining though as $1000 is an awesome deal for this trip.

    Wish I could get the time off to go. Looks like a place I could relax at for sure.

    I thought old age had gotten to me. As much as I would love to get this for $1000 , I hope it goes higher for Scott's sake. If it doesnt I am 100% committed to my bid.

    Wish this had been mentioned in the original post , transferring to a different airline in Mexico City does not sound like fun.

    This is an amazing prize and it's amazingly generous of @Cperry to do this for Scott's benefit!

    Just like with travel prizes, anywhere, the bidders and subsequent winner bear some responsibility for deciding if they actually want the prize, for whatever reasons they deem important to them. If you don't have anything nice to say, don't say anything at all.
