I did not want to hijack Marvins thread, but did want to reply to Cotts query of Uncle bill saying he was done flying after having to deal with the security lines in his socks.
Prior to 9-11, I flew at least 2 times per week with my job in Alaska and between Alaska and Seattle. We all know what happened with "security" after 9-11. It got so crazy, I finally left that job. Who needs to put up with being treated like a farm animal to get on a plane?
I do a lot of hunting out west. For my last 4 big game hunts out west, I have chosen to drive 24 hours EACH WAY just to avoid the hassle of dealing with the airports and the so called security. I shudder to think how many former passengers nationwide have done the same and are chosing to drive. The industry can't afford to lose many more passengers. What are your thoughts?...Don't touch my junk regards
