Jul 2nd 2012 8:44AM Over the last several years I have driven rather than fly to various destinations over 6 to 8 times. I guess if I had flown, the airline(s) would be treating me better. Sort of a chicken and egg situation. Now since I only fly once a year, I am treated like scum. I guess my wife and I will continue driving.
Nov 24th 2010 8:58AM When going through security I discovered that I had failed to put my Swiss army knife with a dangerous 1 inch blade in my checked luggage. The security person indicated that I could take it back out to my car and come back through security. My sister had dropped me off so that was not an option. I reluctantly surrendered my small knife.
When I got back, I mentioned to a friend that I had lost my knife because there was no place to check it at the airport. He mentioned that he had the same problem. What he did was walk back outside and hid his small knife in some bushes at the airport. It was still waiting for him when he returned from his trip.
Feb 17th 2010 9:35AM I have been driving to Colorado for spring skiing the last several years. I'm retired and afford the time. No more excess baggage fees, searches, or tarmac waits.
However, it's going to be difficult to drive to Croatia for my youngest son's wedding this fall.

Dec 11th 2009 7:40PM I not only find it in bad taste, but the fact that AOL saw fit to link to Holidash and its Walmart - "save money, live better" sponsor to display this crap.
