New Arizona, Il Duce/Warlord
I love redeyes.I flew my first redeye the other day. I wasn't expecting to like it as much as I did, but it was awesome. Bloody quiet on the airwaves (I guess RJs don't fly at night?), and it was clear and a million most of the way so the starfield was spectacular.
I feel like butt today, but most of that is my own fault for not trying to recover responsibly day-of, and instead going to SAN for fun the day-of.
But I'm peculiar anyway.
I'm the weird guy in DTW that will literally look for trips with a long LAX/PHX/SAN/SFO layover with a redeye back to DTW. That way, I get in, grab a full breakfast at Leo's Coney (Two eggs, hashed browns and meat), then sleep like a big fat apneatic baby on the commute home to PHX.
Love it! But there's someone senior to me that keeps snapping those up. He needs to retire.
