Life On The Ground

There really is a temptation to stop and smell the roses.  Really.  No kidding.  I've been grounded for a while now, and I really have no intention of getting back onto the road full time.  Reality will eventually kick in, I'm sure.  Being grounded in San Diego does have some great advantages.  I've been able to spend more time having a life.  Who knew?  I actually do have a life that isn't 35,000 feet in the air. 

All good things must come to an end.  I guess it's time to book my next adventure.  I'm going to a reunion in North Carolina in a few weeks, and then I do have to get on the road for work for a few random days this summer. It's time to get those wings out of storage.

As strange as it may seem, I have been on the ground for a couple of months.  I am still employed with even more work and reason to travel than ever.  It seems that working at my desk has been a quite appealing prospect for the last several weeks, and it gets harder and harder to want to get back in the saddle again.

In a strange turn of events, I was the only one who didn't have to travel for a company meeting earlier this month.  Thanks to the polar vortex this winter, most people were quite happy to have a meeting in Southern California.  Due to inclement weather, a lot of people had some interesting travel stories.  Sadly, I think I've experienced almost all of those stories sometime in my career.

I'm not sure what the future might bring, but I do believe that I'm not quite finished yet.  For now, I'll enjoy being on the ground with a lot of paperwork.  Happy travels to all!
