Tripping to Chi Town

p1210501

So here I sit in the Marriott in Chicago, writing instead of frolicking in the pool. Of course if you’ve seen me, you’ll understand why the hotel may not exactly want me in their pool. Something about the water bill to refill it!

Ok, so full disclosure. I’m here on Turtle Wax’s dime as web based auto writers converge on their head office to solve the mysteries of car wax. Believe it or not, today was my first ever flight on a propeller driven aircraft, a Bombardier Q400. While not exactly a quiet flight, I have to say it was one of the most enjoyable flights I’ve ever had. Absolutely wicked thrust comes out of those twin engines. When the pilot opened the throttle, it slams you back in the seats it accelerates so hard. Very cool. Of course the in flight snack was pretty sweet too!

Check back tomorrow when we’ll bring you more from Turtle Wax.
