Airport Blogging – Houston bound

Category: Travel | Comments Off on Airport Blogging – Houston bound


Gotta’ go. See you on the other side.


Arrived at 11:30 PM; as of now I am comfortably ensconced in my palatial suites above the Galleria. Sometimes travel has some surprises. This was one of those times.

Travel Tip: If it’s 300 miles or less, drive.

I left for the airport at 5:30 and hit :30 minutes of extra traffic. Waiting for the airport parking shuttle added another :25 minutes, so by the time I arrived at the counter to check in, the flight was boarding – too late to check bags.

The final touch was a change in departure gates – in a different terminal.

Time to punt.

I returned to the counter for a refund for the plane ticket; called the rental car company to cancel; hopped back on the shuttle to retrieve the car and drove.

The flight would have arrived at 8:40 PM. With the deplaning process; the walk through the terminal; the rental car shuttle and the drive to the hotel, I would have arrived at about 10:00 PM.

(If I had just driven from the house – and avoided the two hours at the airport, I would have arrived at 9:30 PM and saved about $600 spent on the flight and the rental car.)

300 miles or less? It’s quicker and cheaper to drive.

Inventory as of 1/20/2020:

I currently list 13 hand guns with a retail value of $14,393 and 16 long guns with a retail value of $51,231.

Orders are usually available for local pickup or shipment to your FFL in five to seven business days.

"Anyone who still wants guns, rifles or ammo should go to Traction Control/Well-Regulated Militia: Still pre-panic prices and a huge inventory and good reliable service. Tell everyone you know"
