People who think this is glamorous must be nuts.

You get nice views along the way.

    That Ginger Ale can is interesting for me, I never see that desing. Here Ginger Ale uses their old can desing.

  2. For years I flew all over the U.S. for business – often on a moment’s notice. I learned to despise airline travel.

    The other day I took the train – a delightful experience.

  3. Wow, they gave you Ginger Ale? Last time I flew the only airline out of Charlottesville VA, they charged me $2 for water. Once, before deregulation, air travel was a delight and one could fly from SF to Eugene OR for less than $690, now it being in the air is one less step above . . .

    Actually, ginger ale is a very good choice of drink when flying. In a far distant segment of my life (about 40 years ago) I was an Air Hostess. Flying can be very dehydrating and we were urged to drink a lot of fluids. Water, being very limited on a plane, was not encouraged – we could end up not being able to clean our work surfaces, etc. We were also warned not to drink Coke or milk as either one could cause kidney stones (flying in a pressurized aircraft intensifies many things, including the effect of Coke and milk). So, I turned to ginger ale, which was encouraged. I used to add a small amount of lime cordial (non-alcoholic! It was a concentrate that could be diluted with water into a sweet beverage). This did the trick for me

    Ah, ginger ale my flying beverage of choice. Hope you had a good time in SF Father.

  6. Dr. Eric says:

    I like Ginger Ale. After racking up thousands of miles flying from STL to LAX I can say that air travel is for the birds!

  7. Bthompson says:

    Au contraire, your reverence, Ginger ale is indeed very interesting and closely approaches being the overall superior soft drink.

  8. Joan M: I used to add a small amount of lime cordial … This did the trick for me

    And it was good against scurvy!

    I like ginger ale-it’s good when you have ‘tummy troubles’!

    I used to like flying in the days when I took vacations in Europe. But it’s such a pain now! I haven’t flown since 2005, when I went to EWTN in Alabama.

    Too bad that there isn’t a way to dig a railway tunnel under the oceans, like the ‘Chunnel’ between England and France. I wonder if that could be done?
