There are different rooms for rent. Not sure what's open now. A lot of guys go in on a place together.

Good point! Either way I'm looking forward to flying for Cape, heard a lot of great things from many people, and it will be a welcome change from dealing with the regional airline nonsense.

I've been here for almost a year and I gotta say it's a pretty cool company to work for. It has its faults like anywhere but, like you said, there is a lot of nonsense that you don't have to deal with.

Ideally I'd like to stay in the northeast, I live about an hour north of BOS. BOS or LEB would be cool, but I understand the lines reduce up here during the winter and I'd likely have to move to the Caribbean for the winter (oh darn...) But knowing that eventually there's a possibility of staying up here is cool.

Did you get hired as a Captain or FO?

Yeah, life's tough in the Carib I don't know what competition is like for the north in winter but it seems like the Carib would get most of the bids.

Old info I guess. I didn't realize so many had upgraded already, but then I don't get out much . . .
