Default Yay...more travel

Key player on our team (client side) is leaving as of this Friday. Now they want me to switch my onsite cadence from every other week, to 2 weeks in JC and 1 week in FL.

I guess the hotel and airline points will continue to climb.

Dog and spouse won't be thrilled.

Jury is still out on that. Regardless, I'm just putting in my time and building my certifications. In this ecosystem, I can be very portable if I desire. For the moment, I am complacent cuz the benefits with mama blue are pretty huge, but it doesn't mean I won't entertain offers. I'm 50...I'm not so inclined to chase the next best thing unless I'm forced too. But travelling 66% of my time yields me zero additional compensation. In fact, it costs me money. Per Diem doesn't cover what I spend on meals, not to mention all of the flights I pay to upgrade to first class.

Doesn't look like you're stopping by anytime soon. I'm gathering up those skunky beers of yours and donating them to the Goodwill.

Sorry to hear you're workload is filling up as such.

On the upside, it'll give me a lot more time to run out and catch you for a couple cold ones.
Your hotel is a fat hour from my house.

On the bright side, I see less time for you to blow up engines.

I hope you are maxing out that 401K and whatever other plans you can. Grab as much money as you can then get out when the time is right for you.

I'm in Consulting also, but most of my projects have been local. I like being home but miss my air, car, and hotel status.
