I don't know how many of the members here travel for business, but based on other threads, I have the feeling it's a reasonably large number of you. For those of you, like myself, who do "get" to travel, do you love it or hate it? Me? It's hard to say, I guess. Right now, I hate it, so sorry for the bitching thread. I travel fairly often (last year I flew about 65,000 miles), and it seems that it's never convenient, even though many people think it's so nice to see all these other places. Yes I have been to places I never would have gone to on my own, but all of that comes at a price that many don't understand. For example, this week I had to travel yesterday and miss the Superbowl. Next week I get to be gone on Valentine's day. Last year I missed Mother's Day (my wife's first with our new son). I've traveled on birthdays, anniversaries, holidays, weekends, etc. And contrary to what most people think, it's generally not a tourist trip, even when it's to nice places. And no offense to Mr Anderson, but missing Valentine's Day with my wife so I can spend it in Warsaw, Indiana with business associates isn't tops on my list . But that's where I'll be next week. So I guess I'd be interested in hearing what the rest of you think of the glamorous world of business travel.
