Re: Buses

Back in the early '80s I was accidentally flown into LAX. Should have been BUR (Burbank). Arrived just before 4PM on a Wednesday, had to be on site by 6. Have you ever tried to navigate LA freeways at that hour? My destination might as well have been on another continent. You know how expensive it is to book a small, private aircraft at the last minute? Try it with a helicopter.

I made the meeting. I didn't get the emergency call out +graveyard bonus, though. Seems the chopper ride ate it (which I was blamed for, despite not even knowing the company name before I was on the ground!). This was the incident that caused the company to outfit us emergency field service guys with new-fangled DynaTACs ...
