    Headed to New Jersey today. First class upgrade already confirmed. A shame I have to meet with people later today or id probably have a few screwdrivers on the flight.

    I drove 5.5 hours to Pittsburgh yesterday, had a meeting and turned around to drive home.

    The PA Turnpike had construction projects all over the place, causing backups for many miles. Took me 7.5 hours to get home.

    So...13 hours of driving for a 1 hour meeting. Man, I was tired.

    I had a DAY trip to Seattle last week from nyc, out on 9:30am flight home on 10:30pm red-eye. It was grueling, and I will never do that again for them....

    I work from home, so today I will be walking over to Dunkin Donuts to get my morning coffee.
    My commuting and work travel days are over.
    It was exhausting.

    I'll be driving for about 2 hours this morning in Southern CA - in the rain.
    Will probably end up being more like 6 hours.

    Stand your ground! Order must be preserved in the first class cabin if we are to remain civilized.

    I work from home now - and just part time - but had some insane trips - like a 27-hour round trip from EWR-Düsseldorf-EWR with a change at Hearhrow on the return. And a full 8-4:30 meeting in Düsseldorf Stupid - but easy miles!

    Like MLH, I avoid airports at any cost. Would rather drive 5.5 hrs then put up with the amber lamps in the sky.

    A prior employer sent me to another city for the day 3 times to make a presentation. I had to get up at 4am and got home at midnight each time. No overtime pay. So I had an opportunity to do something fun and asked for a comp day off. My manager said we did not have comp time. When I mentioned the 3 times he said it was part of the job.

    After I left that job I got a notice in the mail that another employee was suing that company for not paying for time. Long story short, I signed on to be part of the class action and in the end got about $5,000! Had they just given me the comp day, most likely I would have been happy with it and not ben part of the class action suit.

    never fly if possible. I drove out to Pitts which yes has a shit ton of summertime work going on but its still beats flying or traffic around most major cities. I have done th out and back same day and its grueling but I usually stay overnight and walk around my hotel room nude pumping off

    Had a good weekend in New Jersey, spent most of day in NYC bar hopping and seeing the sights. Customer meeting in the morning and then home bound. Watch out, Delta skyclub, your vodka is soon to be depleted.

    Left New York this morning and flew to San francsico. Had a nice day walking around the embarcadero. Grabing some dinner now. Have work here this week with 2 clients. Probably catch the Giants game Tuesday and go out for dinner and drinks the other nights. It's a nice break from the wife and kids. Taking the red eye home Thursday night. Sometimes business travel is ok.

    No, I had to have a look at the equipment and layout of a manufacturing facility. No faking it is possible.

    I survived. It's just a PITA sometimes when I carve out really long days.
