Out of it

It's incredible how reliant we (I) have become with the world wide web. I don't know why, but right now my internet is not working at home at all. Nothing. Nada. Zip. Also I'm not working now, so I can't even use the internet at the office. With 375 folks in my little town, there's no Starbucks with hotspots or anything like that. So, I just go without.

It's amazing how much you can miss when you're not checking in for a few days. Right now I'm on a little trip to Phily, so I can check in now and then.

Nothing like 13hrs of flying (love the milk run) for a 3 hour meeting tomorrow and then fly home, get into YYC at midnight and then drive an hour home. It used to be common place for me to make several trips per month, and man am I glad I'm not gone quite that much anymore.

Crappiest part of all, I missed my connections (delays adding up through the trip) and ended up getting into PHL very late. I was planning on reacquainting myself with the oldest beer in America, Yuengling Lager. Seems to be most commonly found here on the Eastern part of the US. Not an incredible beer, but just one I can't get often. Also the history is kind of cool. Oh well, maybe with lunch tomorrow!
Yay for beer. Boo for business travel.

What if you sold beer making equipment and when you traveled, it was for equipment upgrades/installs and you got beer at each destination?

That would make the travel less of a burden, wouldn't it?

It sure would. What the heck am I doing in airport baggage conveyors???? Dream on. Maybe one day I could be a traveling beer salesman. One day.

If you are still there, do not forget about the Black & Tan porter. I get that every year we go to Bentrideronline festival.
