You went to the wrong parts of South Dakota. The Black Hills are absolutely wonderful.
Especially if need for bathroom breaks varies greatly or driving styles vary greatly
I went where the parental unit took me
OH yes. Of course everyone sang.
We don't have tapes from the trips, but we do from random moments in childhood where we would make up songs, or sometimes mwg25sister#1 would tape radio commercials and then "dub" herself in at random intervals. She was definitely the comedian.
Once, on a drive home from parents' reunion, she spent half the time making up new verses to the Song of the Classes (Wandering Aramean & co. will appreciate this). Some of them are hysterical. I'll have to sing them to you sometime.
I did an EWR-BUR drive, using I-70. That was a nice drive, but Kansas is boring...70 through CO is beautiful. Scratch that, 70 the whole way across the country is beautiful.
I've covered a good deal of I-80 - obviously the CLE-NYC segment several times, but once from Cheyenne to CLE. In December.
Nebraska is interminable. You know something is wrong when you're really excited to hit Iowa.
Used to be "driveaway" services, which moved cars long distance for people, leasing companies, etc. If you had a clean driving record (and once you'd done it a couple times, they'd start to call you), you could drive a car from A to B, presumably because you wanted to go somewhere close to B. Paid you nothing, except maybe gas sometimes.
Bummed around some in the summers in college doing those. They gave you plenty of time and miles to detour a little, lay over a little if opportune, and most were pretty decent cars.
Routing more passengers on LH or through IAD combined with lower winter demand and aircraft shifts?
All this talk of highwaymen and driving has me thinking this...
I will live in Montana. And I will marry a round American woman and raise rabbits, and she will cook them for me. And I will have a pickup truck... maybe even a "recreational vehicle." And drive from state to state. Do they let you do that?
More that she just has the unfortunate habit of a limited repertoire of conversation that I'd never noticed in smaller increments.
In the same room with Suge, OK. In front of him on the upgrade standby list for the only F seat remaining...
Those folks will take the Lufty flight.
That's true. UA doesn't really compete in Global F
Sure they do, under the JV all the TATL revenues get pooled. So UA is selling those LH F seats just as hard as LH is selling UA F seats -- it all goes in the same pot.
One semi-drunken night in college, we were sitting around talking about draft evasion and the associated topic of doing something to help mankind, such as the Peace Corps, or divinity school after graduation (draft deferral eligible).
One guy, who went on to not only evade the draft via the lottery, but also to become a quite successful writer, said his dream to help mankind would be to move to Wall, and keep the weasels from putting "I've been to Wall Drug" bumper stickers on the cars of the victims who just had to stop after the inundation of signs. He said he knew he couldn't save them all, but it would be like the Peace Corp: you just do what you can do.
Best of all worlds - UA can use its sales prowess, and LH can deliver the better product
My family did a number of road trips when we were kids, but nothing further east than Orlando, or west than central Colorado, or north than Missouri. And, we never did the drive all night thing. My parents refused to do it, out of concern for safety but also everyone's sanity. That's probably why I have such low tolerance for overnight travel that doesn't involve a bed or a lot of space to stretch out, because as a kid, I become too accustomed to stopping at a hotel along the way if we were driving.
Generally, if we could get there within a two day drive, driving no more than about 8-9 hours/day, we drove. If the destination was more distant than that, we flew. And, sometimes we flew places that were closer, if there was a great deal to be had.
Not a place I'd want to be, lol.
Be glad they didn't have the 763 on it when you were flying. You'd still end up in the back, but you'd have to walk past all those F suites and lie-flat C seats, and then end up in the back where the airplane interior is straight-up 1988.
I didn't need to see that while I'm eating lunch!!!
There was a moment that totally and completely made Wall Drug for me, and every time I think about it, I grin.
I went to go see the T-Rex, and there was a girl who was somewhere in the 8-10 yo range who just SCREAMED when the T-Rex came out and ran as fast as she could.
Then, when she was halfway across the courtyard, she looked back and realized no one else was running.
American Community Survey. Fortunately I'm the only one in my household.
They ask what one's primary function is at work. Answers considered were "screaming at people all day", "preventing and fixing batman", and "hitting head on desk", but I didn't want a call from the Census Bureau asking for an explanation.
Just got the details on a new corporate cell phone program at work. We're supposed to be getting discounts from both AT&T and Verizon. I was interested in what AT&T was going to offer us, as I've been considering a switch to them from T-Mobile. So, I eagerly priced everything out from the discount site, got a monthly total and a total cost for a new device, and then decided to compare the price to what's on their regular site.
The much hyped discount program at work, which we've been hearing about for weeks? It saved me exactly $0.00. Not a single penny on the new phone, not a single penny on the monthly fee. What a ripoff.
I'm sorry. I probably should have thumbnailed those. But you do know that at some restaurants, such as the Buckhorn Exchange in DEN, you can buy and eat snake appetizers. (Obviously, the snake is the appetizer; you don't eat things that would be appetizers for the snakes, because those would be rats)
