I have a friend that flies for Piedmont. Just bought his first airplane at 31. We go back and forth about hotel living all the time. But I still feel like I always win when I point-out I can sleep in my own bed every night no matter where I am.


I guess its the same thing about taking an interstate compared to a backroad. Sure, it might take more time to get there but you're going to see a whole lot more!

Another former pilot here. ATPC MEL and MES. Never owned a plane and don't want to. Have owned two Blue Birds. Really loved flying, but that kind of tells you something about overall pleasure. With a plane it's a labor of love, too, but I am having more fun with the Blue Bird.

We ought to have a BB pilot rally to tell and hear some flying stories.

I'd tell some air traffic stories but I know you pilot types aren't going to listen anyway.

From 1970 till I bought my first motor home , M380 in 2014 I flew a small plane when I went anywhere. That included all of the lower 48 states
, north of the Artic circle in Alaska and down through Central America to Coasta Rica. Still travel in my Cessna 185 out west some but there is nothing like traveling around in a Blue Bird with all the comfort of your own home no matter where you stop. Plus all the good people you meet and get to know, we have made a lot of friends in the last four years and 40,000 miles. I say go for it and give it a try.
