I quit flying after I had my pacemaker installed. This made an ordeal of any trip though airport security. Once I retired, we bought a MH so I would travel again. If I cannot get where I need to go in the MH, I don't need to go.

You have lucked out then. I was part of the 1st flights into some of the places in Afghanistan where we stayed in tents. Even now after 10+ yrs in these places we stay in shelters made of plywood. I always wondered why they didnt just make a lodging area made of mobile homes, manufactured homes, or even travel trailers would be better then the crap we are in. At least in most motels you stay in you don't have to walk 300 yards in rock and mud to use the restroom or showers.

I spend over 125 nights a year in hotels due to business travel and for several years that was combined with flying every week. I'm used to the hotel stays, but I would hate to start the weekly air travel ritual again. I only have to fly two or three times a year now....and that's more than I care to.

I have to agree, After nearly 30 years on the road and a hundred thousand air miles a year I don't miss motels one bit. I do miss the people I used to work with, and the challenge of the work but not the idiot TSA people. Non business travelers who thought the airlines owed them the world just because they bought a ticket. Will stay in my trailer until I cannot tow it any more.
