Where is your compassion Burkmere? I'll bet your a munchkin to boot.

I once had a flight on a foreign (but well-regarded) airline where my knees were literally jammed into hard plastic backed seats and couldn't sit diagonally because it was a middle seat. I 5'5" Indian guy on aisle declined to trade with me - even for $20 US! (I think I even raised it to $50). I had to stand outside the bathroom for about 2 hours when a stewardess felt sorry for me and let me use her landing jump seat for the rest of the 7 hour flight. I always upgrade to economy plus or use miles to go business if at all possible.
I'm only 5' 9" tall, but my legs are as long as my 6' 4" nephew. I have a problem with long flights in economy class and buying pants.

When I'm "too old to travel" it will be "putting up" next door to MT in another great state. With a NICE state nursing home location!

I am still working near the Florida Georgia border and live in Ohio so I have an 1,600 mile round trip commute that takes 12 to 13 hours by car.

Not as bad as it sounds; fly down on a Monday, stay the weekend, fly back the following Friday where I will spend three weekends, rinse, repeat and still receive full time pay.

Used to not bother me one bit but I have always been a workaholic and driveaholic. I love driving or at least I used to.

Starting in February I am going to start flying for my commute because I don't want to drive anymore and I wonder if I am as safe as I once was. My vision at night is not what it used to be and I have no desire to get into an accident.
