138. That's why I fly as little as possible.....
The journey from getting to the airport, through check-in, security and to the gate now is as hard as the actual flight. As a result I travel as little as possible by air.

It has meant I only see my family about once every 12-18 months when I make the journey from coast to coast but we have other ways of keeping in touch including very frequent phone calls, e-mail, text messages, and even live cams.

I have discovered much of the scenic beauty and places of interest within a 2-3 day drive from my home. I can leave when I want to, stop when I want to, etc.

Farewell to those long expensive air journeys. If I ever set foot out of the country again it will be by ship or rail.
