    Baltimore, MD
    Ramstein, Germany
    Baltimore, MD
    Norfolk, VA
    Shannon, Ireland
    Abu Dhabi, UAE
    Doha, Qatar
    Bahrain
    Shannon, Ireland
    Baltimore, MD
    JFK/LGA (don't know which yet)

    My previous record for a trip is 19,600 miles. This one is 22,800.

    Oh, I'm doing all this in 5 days.

    You know, if you were flying in a straight line around the equator, you'd almost make it around the entire world and back home! :shock:

    JFK-PPT-SYD-DRW-KNX-NWM-PER-SYD-PPT-JFK

    = 25833 mi

    The circumference of the earth at the equator is 24901.55 miles, so Phil, you're almost there.
    And I, I took the path less traveled by
    and that has made all the difference......yet...
    I have a feeling a handle of people are going to be very interested in what I post in the near future.

    And by contractor he means MERCENARY.
    Ladies and gentlemen, this is your captain speaking. We have a small problem.
    All four engines have stopped. We are doing our damnedest to get them under control.

    Not trying to brag or one up anyone, but the difference between your trips and mine is that you get off the plane. I'm only in a hotel for one of those five days, literally living on the plane for all the rest of the trip.
