Last week, I had to let my editor go after seven years because I’ve been steadily losing money since March. I’ve never asked for donations before and it’s not easy to do but times are truly tough. COVID-19 has crushed the travel industry, my wife and I (and most of our colleagues) have lost all of our sponsors and clients.

Multiple friends and colleagues, including Leo Laporte, have recommended that I add a donation button to my website since there are a lot of people who haven’t lost their income and find my information valuable. So, if you’ve ever saved some money or time from my travel advice or have the means and desire to support a small business, please consider donating either monthly or one time.

Subscribers can either Venmo (the last four digits of my phone number are 2425 and my last name is DiScala) or PayPal (if you use the latter please pay as a friend so I don’t get charged their fees) using my email ( or mail a check to Johnny Jet, Inc (, 425 15th Street #3213, Manhattan Beach, CA 90266). I’m also now on Patreon but prefer the others. 

I understand that times are tough for so many people and my heart goes out to everyone who is struggling. Please know that I appreciate any support you can give (even encouraging friends and family members to sign up to this newsletter is a huge help) and hopefully, when this nightmare pandemic is over, there will be a surge in travel and things will start to look up for everyone.

Thanks for considering and for all the support you’ve shown me over the years.
