Road Cycling “It is by riding a bicycle that you learn the contours of a country best, since you have to sweat up the hills and coast down them. Thus you remember them as they actually are, while in a motor car only a high hill impresses you, and you have no such accurate remembrance of country you have driven through as you gain by riding a bicycle.” -- Ernest Hemingway

I'm starting to think I need plaid luggage. This looks photoshopped though, I need some actual product photos before I add to cart.

That will make it easier to identify your luggage on the carousel, right up until everyone else also uses them (see also "Grey or Black rolling flight bags", "Christmas ribbon tied to handle")

If I could (1) keep the sweat out of my eyes [same problem with cycling] and (2) not have my skin get roasted, mowing on 90F days would be great.

I don't see what I would consider recombobulation supplies, but it's nice they have an area dedicated to the task in the Milwaukee airport.

I'd want to arrive on site 5 minutes before dawn personally.

Back when my Dad was 91, we were visiting. It was summer in PA, one of those 90 degree days with high humidity where simply walking to the car leaves you bathed in sweat. We were all in the house, hanging out as close to an air conditioner as we could. I had a question for Dad, so I looked for him all over the house, but couldn't find him. I walked out the the garden - which you can't see from the house - and there he was, in 90 degree heat, on his hands and knees, weeding the garden by hand.

He was one tough old bird, my Dad.
