Will have me in the Northern VA area for 3 to 5 months, then a few days every six months. They’ll cover the hotels, airfare etc. Nice.
So I had to download the Northern VA Code Plug for my TYT MD-380 DMR radio.
Spent the day in Fairfax, VA today – nice little place but spread out like all hell. And the parking garage at DCA – ugggh. It’s fucking insane. To get to it you have to go in where it says DO NOT ENTER then down a ramp and there’s the spot where the Zipcars are parked.
And let’s not talk about the fact that DCA shuttle is a fucking bus. In fact coming home my flight was at gate 35X. I now know what the X stands for – it means you’re being bused to your aircraft. I hope Ronald Reagan is spinning in his grave.
Flying down we were on a Bombardier CRJ900 jet – nice one.
The flight back was an Embrear EMB-145:
And TSA – it’s definitely security theater. For example, if you’re 75 or older you don’t have to remove shoes, belt or jacket. I know I’m full of piss and vinegar enough that when I’m 75 I’d be a terrorist. :) You see my point there don’t you?
