Well, IIRC, Kris works for a company that's a major player in the
Tech Industry. So I think he's probably fairly lucky that he only
travels that much. When I worked in that same sector, it was fairly
standard to hop a plane 2-3 times a *week*. I was fortunate in that
I was management, and they normally wanted me to stay fairly
stationary (hard to hit a moving target, and all that).
Granted, most of these excursions were day-trips (Chi to Cinci and
back on Monday, round-trip to Minneapolis for Tuesday, and KCMO on
Thursday after that, for instance). But many of the guys who worked
for me would routinely be in a different city every day of the week.
Heck, one of my employees even got a special award from Northwest
Airlines a while back for being one of their top three flyers for
that calendar year.
Been a couple years since I chucked that lifestyle, though. I wonder
if any significant changes have occurred due to increasing travel
