1) It’s no secret. Flying is dang expensive.

Meanwhile, with low gas prices and higher MPG, you feel like you’re basically made of money.

2) No one likes packing, especially when you have to fit your entire life into a 1-foot by 1-foot canvas box with wheels.

“Oh, you’re bag is two ounces above the max weight. That’ll be a $4,000 overweight fee.”

When you drive, packing = optional. Bring it all if you want.

3) It’s the day you depart. No matter how much you think you prepared, you’re always in a rush to the airport.

Meanwhile, you’re waving good-bye to all your neighbors: “So long Mr. Bear! Be back whenever I feel like it.”

6) Requesting to change your flight due to the delay that they caused.

In your car, customer service requests be like, “Turn up my song!”

7) When you fly, accommodations for your furry friends are sub-par at best.

No one puts Fido in the corner.

8) Toiletries
