Did you say you love to
travel by air? Well, that
makes two of us. But the
next time I’m asked to fly to
a far-off meeting via the
Wright brothers
magnificient invention, you
may see me make a mad
dash to the nearest bus
station. Why? Read on.
On a recent early Monday
morning, three farm wives
depart Harrisburg Airport at
8:15 a.m. en route to Green
Bay, Wis., to attend the
American Agri-Women
national convention. First
mistake; having to fly on a
foggy day. Three hours
later, finally touch down at
Chicago’s O’Hare Airport,
after being “stacked up” in
the traffic pattern for an
extra hour because of poor
ground visability. Rush to
catch connecting flight to
Green Bay; sorry, flight
cancelled. Stand in ticket
line for another hour to
reschedule flight. Pass time
eating lunch. By stroke of

sheer luck, get called as
stand-bys on early afternoon
flight. Important meetings
to attend, so eagerly wait for
take-off. Wait. And wait, and
wait. Disembark after 40
minutes; plane not moving
an inch because Green Bay
still fogged in. Retrace
quarter-mile walk to ticket
offices. Wait in line hour and
a half. Tiny chance of after
dinner flight leaving. Pass
more time eating-tMs time
at airlines expense. Evening
flight finally leaves the
ground with passengers
warned they’ll probably end
up in Milwaukee for the
night. Miraculously, fog lifts
just enough for plane to set
down at Green Bay. Ah ha,
here at last. Wait long, long
time for hotel limousine to
arrive, finally discovered
masquerading as a plain old
car. Near 11:00 p.fn., three
exhausted farm wives
collapse on a sixth floor hotel
room, mulling over the
marvels of travel by air.

Look at a few of the
features we build
into our structures.
Lancaster Farming, Saturday, November 19,1977
Four days later, on a
beautifully crystal clear
night, same trio checks out
of hotel, eager to return to
York County. Perfect flight
south over Wisconsin, with
Chicago spectacularly lit
like a sparkling jewel in the
black night.
Too good to last. Con
necting flight home to
Harrisburg delayed hour
and a half due to technical
difficulties. Pass time
eating again. Jet finally
arrives and whisks Penn
sylvanians home for
weekend. By midnight we
should be home in our beds.
But wait: the car left all

hours of morning to find
father, daughter, and cat
sound asleep in living room
waiting. Beautiful!
