As I may have mentioned a time or twelve before, my day job is in the construction industry. Every three years, anyone remotely associated with the construction business flocks to the City of Sin for ConExpo/ConAgg.

When I travel it is usually to Tampa for vacation which takes me on the typical LaGuardia/Tampa or LaGuardia/Atlanta/Tampa route.

While I respect all of those, being a plane/aviation geek, mine probably seem lame compared to having hamburger with George Costanza. I’ve … More My Plane Geek Bucket List

I’ve added a link to the official site for the Maine Troop Greeters. They are a very dedicated group of people who gather at the airport to welcome troops flying through Bangor on their way to military installations overseas or those who are returning home from deployment.

Yesterday after I got done my morning chores and gym workout I made my way to the Maine Air Museum. As long as I’ve been hanging out on the sidelines of Runway 33, I’ve never been there.
