Does your handle refer to the number of hours you spend on a plane every year?

BTW, my niece just Instagramed a pic with a couple friends at the Warhol Museum. It's her first trip to the 'Burgh and she's liking it.

Mine's ND.

Been to NM. Albuquerque, Santa Fe, Taos, etc. Also have hit NM from El Paso. Las Cruces, White Sands missile testing range - where there was a sign when you enter, that said - If you're not out by a certain time, you won't be allowed out til a later time due to "TESTING" , Alamagordo, Cloudcroft, and amazing, Carlsbad Caverns Nat'l Park - with the famous bat cave where, thousands? millions? of bats come out every nite at nearly the same time every nite that you can watch from a kind of amphitheater.



Glad your niece likes The Burgh! Yay for the Warhol Museum!

I am a technical trainer for production printing devices. If you spend a lot of money buying one (or more) of these dudes from my employer (the manufacturer), I will come visit you for 2-5 days and teach you how to use it.

And also a member of the 49 state "club". I have visited the contiguous 48 + Alaska, but haven't made it to Hawaii yet.

Hah..same job, though I've been doing longer term onsite assignments the last few years so much less back and forth.

This is a pretty cool thread. Lots of really smart people out there. Present company excluded!!

I am a large account manager for a medical company. I have accounts in the four corners of the US and deal with pricing, contracting, marketing, etc. I re qualified for DM in May of this month. All US travel. I have a girlfriend that I cant stand to be away from, so she travels with me when she can.

Own a travel company that does sales / marketing for cruise lines. Travel to Florida (lots), Europe and occasionally Asia/S America.

Now if only DL could add SEA or MSP - FLL/MIA service. It's pretty much double connects all the way from Western Canada on DL. Still, good for racking up the miles I guess

Not if admittance to "the Club" requires such a blatant failure as missing one out of 50 states!
