I did do one really cool thing though. I got to ride in a VERY small airplane! Here's a picture of it!
I had to go to Corpus Christi for work, so the owner of our company offered to fly me in his plane. At first I was like...absolutely not! I kept picturing myself in the air hyperventilating and acting the fool in front of our company's owner! But then the convenience of the whole thing outweighed my fears. If I drove, it would be around 4 hours one way. If I flew, we were looking at maybe 1 hour! So I tucked my fear way back in the back of my brain and hopped onto this bad boy! It was awesome! You could still see the ground, which for some reason made me feel better. It was so beautiful! Nothing like jumping on a plane and not having to wait for everyone else to get settled. You are literally in the air within minutes! I'm definitely spoiled by this whole experience. Commercial flights are so beneath me now.....just kidding!
