Charlie Smathers drove 250 miles on his vacation. iot ofthegra) When you want trout, you go where the trout hang out. And no scheduled airline can take you right to the edge of that remote mountain stream. But Charlie untangled that snag. He simply asked his Travel Agent to handle the whole trip. First they put him aboard a big United Jet (charged the ticket on his United Personal Travel Credit Card). Then he polished off a six-course sirloin steak lunch. He took a short nap. When he awoke at his destination, there was the rent-a-car his Travel Agent had reserved for him (charged that, too). Charlie just piled his gear in the car and headed for that stream. Now he's home, proud as punch, after discovering a new part of America... without backing' his own car out of the garage. All thanks to the airline which flies to more of America, more often, with more jets, than any other. Charlie loves to brag about United. Between fish stories, that is. "The whole story is in the wrist action, Y'see..." Jfrthefriendly skies gf United.
