The record short time on a long term trip was when I was at KPMG LLP, the senior manager who was about to make Partner showed up at clients office to do a 4 hour pitch for a multi million dollar engagement. Due to a mix up the guy was headed out door to Tokyo to give in choices to home office. The Sr Manager on spot called an audible and said can I get in cab with you and pitch in on way to Tokyo. He did.

Landed in Tokyo and bought ticket on first flight back to NY, got engagement and made Partner.

We called that Rock Star Status

Flying, I went out to Phoenix for Cleveland Indians Spring Training and was only there a grand total of 3 days.

Driving, I went in a 4 day period to and from Boston from Cleveland.

New York to Athens, Greece and back.


I was the FOH sound guy for a band that had to fly in for one show: headlining a metal festival.
