Travelin for work.

I don't like it.  I'll drive hundreds of miles every weekend to ski, but it's not the same.  Freakin prepped all weekend for a twelve minute presentation in Baltimore.  Got up at 5am took the train down and did my thing. Hopefully some one was impressed.



I saw on Facebook that dmc was also ridin the rails today.  Actually I like the train way better than air travel.

Anyone else travel for work?  Like it?

Travel for work OR ski wouldn't be for me...too much of a homer for either. The traveling peeps do for either/both amazes me.

Re: Travelin for work.

I just finished roofing the house next door. Now I'm putting a deck on the neighbors place on the other side of my house. I have only had to travel for fishing on the weekends. Maybe i'll go across the street and wreck something so I can work here all Summer.

For years I was a salesman, I drove 120-200 miles a day.  The travel burned me out of that job.  Can't believe that I used to do that, get home at 6 PM on a winter Friday and head north to VT or NY every weekend.

Wow.

I'm such a wuss about it because I've been spoiled. I've been walking to work, and home for lunch since 1988.

Re: Travelin for work.

One of the best things about working in a field that allows you to travel is that you can do it for free.  Yes you might argue that you still have to shell out a few doughs to get through but the mere fact that you are able to do it because of work is just nice.

It does not go with entirely work anyway so you are also left with a couple of other things that would be that easy.

Re: Travelin for work.

I work out of my house...  AndI travel to customers/prospects/events.

I've been working to minimize my plane travel.  2 jobs ago it was worldwide travel... last job it was Ohio/Fl/PA...

My current job is 90% NYC - all media and entertainment..  BUT - I do need to hit the west coast and Florida once or twice a month..

Since most of my job is in NYC now - work pays for Amtrack down to NYC and a hotel if needed..
I love taking the train..  I can get a lot of work done or drink beer..  :)

I currently have over 300k miles on Delta and 150k on American...

I need to use that stuff up...

Leaving for Dallas today for a class and then to a customer...  In Florida..  uuuugh...
