That's a lot of flying time for not deploying.

On the other hand I don't think he's going to be spending that time in sling seats with his feet propped up on cargo pallets and eating flight kitchen boxes and pogie bait for the inflight meat.

Of course, the last time I flew coach, I spent the flight dreaming of the luxury of being in a sling seat and having my feet propped up on a cargo pallet.

It's slightly more comfortable. I still drag my own snacks aboard on most flights.

No Salesweasel, it's not physically possible for me to do a talk in Milwaukee from 3-5pm, and then be in Cincinnati to speak at 8am the following morning. Unless you want me to charter a private jet? Cause I'm cool with that....

It's like a 5 hour plus drive, and a nearly 2 hour flight. Add in the hassle involved in airports...

Yes it's doable, but it won't be fun.

So fuck the sales weasel. :mrgreen:

Good luck with the travelling, BobbyK! Remember to take your vitamins and minerals (especially C, zink and selenium to ward off colds), keep hydrated and get some exercise in-between flights.
