I don't like flying in airplanes anymore because I've never relied on them for keeping in touch with family, or keeping a job. I know many people in the country are transplants living apart from their family and where they grew up because of their job. There's probably a lot of people who freelance across the country too, relying on aerial transportation to job hop from one assignment to another; but since that horrific twin towers attack that seems to have been the precursor for a war that many American's are against, I think flying is overrated. I'll probably never get to see Spain or Italy. I'll probably never visit Rio de Janairo or Chile, and there's very little stuff to do during vacations I take from work here in Los Angeles. I would rather ride to Vegas on a motorcycle and spend only a few days there than to fly and spend a couple weeks there.
