Ah, there's nothing like coming back from sunbathing on a nice, dry, sandy beach to a muddy field back home.

In 1980, I was returning to duty at Fort Eustis (Even Uncle Sam Thinks It Sucks) Virginia,  on a DC-10, at Dulles Airport in a blizzard. We skidded off the runway, and were stuck in the mud and snow for seven hours. Once they finally deplaned us, all flights were cancelled, so we rode on the Old Dominion College's National Champion Women's Basketball team bus to our final destination. That bus was the only First Class anything, I've ever rode on in any way connected to an airline.

Oh, what kind of "in-flight service" did the ODC women's basketball team provide?  Did you join the 0.002-mile-high club?

Dear Penthouse,

I never thought this would happen to me, but...

Heh seriously, they had a very well appointed bus. All chairs were reclining swiveling captain's chairs, with tables between each four, also there was a full kitchen, and a host. I guess that's what you get when you're a two-time National Champion (three?).

We rode that bus to Newport News Airport, and from there we had to arrange our own transportation to Fort Eustis. There was a guy who'd brought his station wagon to the airport, and was charging $100 bucks a head for rides to the base. I paid the money, and we got halfway there, and he spun out and put it in a snowbank. I told him that I'd get him unstuck for returning my money, and that if he was interested, I was experienced in snow driving (he was NOT) and for a 50-50 split, (we settled on 60-40) I would continue making sorties in his car, until I had to report for duty. I ended up making almost two grand before morning formation. Very lucrative for a PV2, making about $450/month.
