I recently took the time to go through my 2008 calendar and add up all the flights I had taken in the course of the year. Southwest had awarded me two free flights so I was curious to see just how many times I had flown. Are you ready for the grand total.... 48! I had to fight security 48 times, arrive at the airport 1 hour early 48 times, hear the emergency procedures 48 times.
2009 hasn't shown signs of slowing down in the travel department and I'm looking forward to what new cities and adventures this year takes me on.
