I agree, not flying is helping, the pressure on the dolts in Washington is helping as well, as are the negative media reports. I haven't flown since Nov. 2010. Prior to that, I had flown 30-40 rt's a year. Nearly all of those rt's would constitute 4-5 days of rental car and hotel stays as well, so a minimum of 120 days of rental car and hotel days. I convinced a friend with a similar position to get his company to provide as much of the service as possible remotely, thank you, so double those numbers above. I just told some friends that they will need to count me out on a ski trip since I can't fly. If I had enough 'extra' vacation days, I would have drove for that trip, but I don't. My lone vacation this year, was a somewhat close location that could be made in a days drive. Maybe next year I'll be able to go on a ski trip if the United Stasi of America will permit it.
