American Airlines


I found this adorable American Airlines lithograph map in the pile of maps I snitched from my grandmother's house. The illustrations are particularly great ... I wish airlines still passed this kind of stuff out. Only in mid-century illustration styles though, please!

American Airlines


Man, I bet there were complimentary three course gourmet hot meals on planes at this point. But, now instead of hot food there's tv and internet access.... hungry stomachs for entertainment... what funny trade off's!

Boston


Speaking of wireless internet! I'm currently in Colorado... 2,615 miles to go! The numbness of having not moved for 4 hours is only starting to bother me slightly... just two more to go and I will be feasting on sweet lovely In 'N Out!

I hope you are excited to start your new life. I was so scared when
I moved to Boston. But everything turned out super fine!
Good luck with everything.
I really envy you, I'm still
going through In-N-Out withdrawals.
I eat In-N-out so much
every time I go back home, and good Mexican food too!
Anyhow, good luck!!!

Perhaps we should throw you a "Welcome to San Francisco" Party. All your devoted SF readers would be more than happy to come, I'm sure. What area will you be living in?

I wish the best of luck to you!!! you will love my beautiful hometown! i promise it will be good to you. i do know what an upheaval a cross-county move is. wait for the dust to settle; let the magic creep in. i am here now for the weekend, visiting my near and dear ones...perhaps one day i'll return for good to the land of fog and hills and redwood beauty....

I wish they would make maps like that again too! I hope the rest of your flight went well and you enjoyed In n' out.

I lived in California this summer and fell in love with in-n-out. Live it up!

Frank - good luck in San Francisco! Remember, if you need an island getaway...Hawai'i's just a plane ride away.

Good luck !

O, but why can't we have wireless Internet, TV on demand, AND three-course gourmet meals? It's a cruel cruel world.

I'm flying Virgin too! Let me know if you want to have an introductory drink and/or bite on Sunday! I'll settle for a quick handshake though!!
