Re: 10 Geekiest Beach Reads Of 2015
Good timing on this Dave. Headed to Florida beach next week, was going to pick out a book over weekend. I'll keep these in mind.
I had to chuckle at the one book where author talked about "irrational" behavior of driving instead of flying. Now, appears he is talking strictly about safety aspect. But I'm driving to Florida instead of flying and it has nothing to do with safety. Three tickets into Fort Walton were about $1800. Then you need to rent a car. Throw in the fact you can no longer trust airline to get you there or home anywhere close to ontime, I'd argue the irrational part is flying. We can stay in 5 star hotels on drive down and back and not spend that much money. Not to mention we are in control, not these incompetent, self absorbed airlines.
We actually got stranded in Miami Florida a couple years ago in June trying to get home! Must of been thunderstorms you say. No, they just could not get our plane into Miami in time for us to make our connection in Detroit to Green Bay. They would have just stranded us there overnight. Maybe we would have got on a flight next day to GB, maybe not. So airline put us in that dumpy hotel in Miami airport. Then next day, the exact same thing happened. American finally had to move our flight to Delta just to get us out, and even then we didn't get to GB until midnight versus the 5pm we were supposed to.
And it's irrational to want to not fly? :-(
