Much of my life feels like I am on the road.
This year has changed that fact a great deal due to the pandemic.
However, while I primarily gave up the perfectly HVAC controlled office, I still had to travel. Online meetings and working from home helped mitigate my risks when it came to this virus. However, my job does require me to be onsite to review progress and execution of projects my company is involved in. Normally, I would be doing much of that travel by plane. This year changed that all up. And honestly, it has been a wonderful change. I have really hated flying the last decade or so. It’s just such a hassle and unless I’m going thousands of miles away, air travel isn’t much of a time saver for me. Plus, I really hated the places I was booked into. While they had lots of fancy amenities, most couldn’t get the basics like HVAC right. So this year, I’ve done all of my traveling by car. And I have found that not only is it more comfortable than flying, I have also found the perfect place to stay. I discovered the mid level hotels that have the big HVAC wall units. These things are great. I love the fact that they can cool down or heat up a room within minutes. And there is no sweating through a night waiting for the next day for maintenance to fix the HVAC. In a year of change, this change has been an unexpected joy.
