    Hopped on a company plane from Chicago to Columbus Thursday morning.
    Got picked up for the 5 minute drive home.
    Went around the block to a friends house to hang out Christmas Eve.
    Had Christmas (on the morning of) with the family at said home.
    Rode ten minutes to a friends house to party til the wee hours of this morning.
    Caught a ride back home.
    Probably repeating those last two parts the next couple nights.

    Damn, thats a stressful long weekend. lol

    I work for a private freight airline that ships bank work, radioactive pharmaceuticals for cancer treatment, and various diagnostic materials. Or whatever you'll pay us to ship to an extent. Since we can get their stuff they generated one day from the east coast to the west coast or anywhere inbetween overnight a lot of medical companies use us. I supervise the HazMat department for our main hub. I see some pretty interesting stuff.

    Oh and we use Lear Jet 35s, Beechcraft 58s, Cessna 208s, and Piper PA-31s converted for freight running. I love riding in the jets. :D

    Yes its pretty sweet. The pilots will throw me the controls every now and then. But since its at night and we're shipping time critical stuff I can't mess around too much. The radiation im exposed to equates to an xray or two a year. We closely monitor that. I wanna snag an old turbo off one of the Navajos! They're bigger than my hand. WAY bigger lol.

    I did all my driving last weekend. And it was only a 20 minute drive to see the girlfriends family. The girlfriends family was down here to watch her younger sister play basketball against the highschool I went to.
