  • Sunday night BTV > LGA, Gate #1 of 8. Total in the WHOLE airport. An hour from my house.

    Propeller plane, 21 folks

    "Flight attendant (no s!) please be seated. We are number one for take off."

    A far cry from the last 10 years living 10 minutes from Logan. Running when cut too close, never missing, except for that one time....

    So I'm trading in the hourly shuttle to NYC at my doorstep for the 3x daily flight to NYC (in good weather) an hour away.

    Trading it in for the drive to work over a covered bridge, the drive home which twice this week yielded moose sitings.

    Trading for life in the literal place where everyone knows your name, where there are only two types of information: 1) public - that you talk openly about and 2) private - that you aren’t supposed to know, but you do and they know you do and that's just how it is.

    Not better, not worse. Just different. Different is good for right now.
