I think I’ve been writing this book for about six or so years now. I’m finally buckling down to finish it. I’ve shared a few chapters over the years as well so you have a good idea of what its all about. Introducing:


“89 Things To Do As An Airline Employee Before You Quit”

The book is designed to help you make use of your flight benefits. To whet your appetite, I’m offering a complimentary chapter; well “Thing” Thing # “26. Visit A Lock.”

This section talks about visiting four Locks in different parts of the world. Where they are, how to get there and what to do when you finally get to the Lock itself.

Hi Kerwin,
Thanks for these (15 of the 89) tips, I should really read the book, I guess !    I retired from United Airlines (ticket counter) in January 2014 and boy, do I miss it — but they offered a lucrative buyout and I was of retiree age with 35 years under my belt.    I have even thought of doing some of these things – like flying around the world in 4-5 days, hopefully (ZED’ing – now there’s a term) along with whatever I can get on United.    I once flew to Chicago for lunch (in the days when I got breakfast on the flight, had lunch in Chicago and took a flight with dinner on the way back) !!    I’ve done a lot of traveling but never want to regret that I couldn’t have done more,  so your ideas for short (almost meaningless) trips appeal to me.   
Again, thanks for the ideas.

Hi Judy,

Thanks for your comment; glad you liked the first few tips 🙂 and congrats on the retirement.
I remember those breakfast flights as well :-). Those short I just want to fly trips are super fun too….
