    31D OHH"Now I get it!"
    was pretty much my reaction when I got TOWEL
    30A TOWELAbout the most massively useful thing a person can have for a trip in 40A
    . Don't panic.

      I had the puzzle all finished before I decided to rework the grid to get TOWEL

      in. Glad it was worth it 😂

      I enjoyed the trip, thanks! Lower left almost "threw" me for a loop!

        Glad you sorted it!

            Totally clever, Mike. The anagrams are fun.

              A word latter + anagram mashup? Love it! I knew what 1A
              1A EARTHThis is your chance! You get to travel from ___ to 40A, without having to become a billionaire first. To make the trip, stop at 15A and 29A first. For each entry, change one letter and anagram the word to find another common word. Have fun!
              had to be right off the bat, and I suspected where we'd end up at 40A
              40A SPACESee 1A
              , but wasn't quite confident enough to plunk it in there from the get-go. You hit on a really well-balanced difficulty level, since the anagramming meant I couldn't just guess my way down the ladder without some crossers first, but those crossers in turn came just easily enough after one or two of their own crossers. And I agree that reworking your grid to include 30A
              30A TOWELAbout the most massively useful thing a person can have for a trip in 40A
              was absolutely worth it!

                Thank you for the thoughtful comment! I wanted to do a straight word ladder but wasn't going to get from EARTH

                -> SPACE
                40A SPACESee 1A
                that way (at least not in a midi) so I added the anagramming. Glad it worked!
