I want to be a part of it,,,,


What is the quickest way from Columbia, SC to New York City?
Plan A: Drive to Columbia airport, (CAE) No No,,, My airport is closed due to a Lear Jet Crash
Plan B: Drive to Charlotte (CLT) jump on American Eagle & Buzz up there.. No No
Plan C: In CLT, Jump on the US Air flight with the other 21 NonRev's and 16 seats avail.No NoPlan D: Greensboro/Spartenburg (GSO) has flights,,, but if you don't get out you are stuck,,,You are pretty much stuck in GSO..

Plan E: Drive 4 hours to Atlanta (ATL) and fly AA to LGA flight is WIDE OPEN... Rightttt
the flight WAS wide open till the 9:40 flight was cancelled. Okay, Plan E it is,
We hop in the car & 4 hours later PRESTO we are in ATL, 1 hour and 42 minutes later we are in New York! Easy!!!!!

As a NonRev, you are nothing if not creative and flexible! & again, it never hurts to have your bud @ mission control giving you a play by play on were you are on the stand by list!!

This is just New York, wait till December, when are trying to get to Sydney, Australia
You will have to wait for that on a later Blog,,,,
I decided to be brave on this trip to New York and do something I have never done in the
2 years I have been based here.. Well, that and my better half was here to protect me!

Number 1: Ride Subway (That was a hoot) The subways in the UK, Paris or even Germany don't scare me but I've always had this fear of New York City,,,, Everyone, was so helpful & great tour guides,,, "Just take the "N" up two stops & you are there",,, Not one person, not two people, but about 4 times, people standing near could hear our conversation as they solicited advise on how to get to our destinations,,,, Thank Goodness, because as the train zipped past our stop I was a bit confused as to why it didn't stop,,,, "well it is express time, they only stop at every 5th stop, Hop off, Lincoln Plaza & go back to Toidy-doid (33rd)"... Whaaa????? No fear, there was a New Yorker near to help us out!! THANK YOU ,,,NEW YORKERS!!

Number 2: Find & Eat a Black & White Cookie, Which doesn't taste like a cookie at all, more like a soft muffin top, with Black & White Icing,,,, Yum Yum...

Number 3: Eat at the Carnegie Deli:
In the words of Rachael Ray "YUMM-O",,,
Okay, I have to go pack now, we must find our ship,,, More later...Ya'll!!
