To Pittsburgh in the lap of luxury
For various personal an professional reasons (namely, killing my colleagues would negatively impact my personal and professional lives), I opted out of the RV and into the lap of luxury, flying to Pittsburgh First Class! But worry not, second class travelers, I have not lost touch with the common person. In both SFO and PHX, deprived of a premium travelers lounge *scoffs*, I was forced to sit with the plebes. In Phoenix, people were actually watching a football match in the waiting area - it's like being in for realz America!
Basically what my flight was like
In all honesty, though, aside from being a lot faster and having co-passengers who smell marginally less like vagrants, the first class flying experience left something to be desired. The food was woefully vegetarian hostile, although a piping hot chocolate cookie made the food situation a little better. The man sitting next to me, a fifty-something video poker player with some kind of digestive problem that tied him up in the lavatory for extended periods of time, left me longing for my fun and relatively digestively sound colleagues.
Now I'm in the Pittsburgh office enjoying some breakfast with a side of green tea. GWS RVers, I'm looking forward to our emotional reunion amid fists of ice-based fury!
