life by numbers



I'm doing preliminary work for an upcoming project (not necessarily my next one, but a book I will write someday) and I dug into my traveling background since I started my job.

The results were kind of fun and made me realize how much traveling I've done since Aug. 11, 2008. I thought it might be fun to post what I found in the interest of showing some of my semi-creative process.

• Two of those were personal
• This included 101 different flights
• One had original departure from Lincoln, once from Kansas City, six from Houston, 20 from Omaha.
• Flew in and out of 25 airports.
• Top five airports by departure are:
