I headed home to North Carolina this week. I occasionally spring for a flight instead of driving as the route by highway is a healthy 7-8 hrs in good traffic. It’s a splurge to fly, but it’s so nice to arrive rested after just 2 hrs of actual flying time and not requiring the next day to recover from an all-day drive. The last leg is a short 20 min leg on a very small plane, which I never mind. Seeing the mountains of where I came from appearing in the setting sun is always a welcome sight.
