I used to live in the north and was over 1.5 hours away from the local airport… It is a small thing but it frequently becomes a problem; My venue of labor consistently has me traveling; Their office is based out of the north too, however well I decided to transfer down south for the nicer weather. I figured it does not matter where I travel from, as long as I have a superb house base. I knew my job would have me fly into the office every now and then. They also would ship me out to other locations! Being semi close to an airport was a must for me. I landed on Lakeland Florida… First, Florida offers me some of the best weather. It is hot most of the year. I can get by with tank tops and shorts for 90% of the time. The winter season season is pathetic. It isn’t that cold. I don’t bother with a heavy duty overcoat and I don’t own boots, and another thing is that I only turn on my heating system actually briefly during the season. It is mainly for the night shift and on certain cold days. Most of the time I get by just fine. I also like that Lakeland puts me right between two airports. I can fly out of Tampa for actually little money. It is only a 45 min drive there, or I can choose to fly out of Orlando that is only an hour drive. I can option and choose based on price. It is actually convenient to have double the chances for flights. The prices are regularly good and I can get a last minute flight easily.
