Well ya'll sitting here in my Denver hotel room - wishing I was back home in Altamont, NY with my blushing bride of 37 years and our three canines. It's Flyday tomorrow - headed DEN-PHL-ALB. Great view here - but there's no place like home.

You could have rented a car and visited Bob McCarty while you were there.
It is common sense to take a method and try it. If it fails, admit it frankly and try another. But above all, try something.

Nice to know now that I am at 33,000 feet headed home. I always have a car when I come out here. I'll know for next time. Interesting flight home- sat at the gate on the plane for 2 hours because the ground crew scratched the plane. Missing my flight from PHL now....Oh well

About twenty years ago I worked for a company and flew quite a bit. Got stuck at the gate for a "mechanical problem". Waited way to long for the ground crew to come over and bring a giant stepladder on wheels and roll it up next to the wing. A mechanic climbed up on the wing and started walking towards the cabin slowly and looking down and searching with each step. I was seated over the wing looking right out at him. He stopped about half way across the wing and turned to his helper who was standing on the top of the ladder and said something to him. The helper came back and walked out to where he was at and handed him something. The mechanic turned around and I swear was holding a roll of duct tape. He tore off a piece about four inches long, put it on the wing, smoothed it out with his hand, stood up, turned to the pilot and gave a thumbs up. Then he and the helper headed for the stairs. We pushed back just as soon as they got the stairs moved and headed for the runway. If I'd only had a smart phone way back then...............
