I've seen this setup at different airports including Atlanta and I don't trust them. I don't know how many times I've seen the sign indicate there is supposed to be about 100 spaces available and I can't find but a few or even none! Lol. I think airport personnel forget to refill the blinker fluid.

Thankfully Halifax Airport is small and not terribly busy. I have never even really looked at that sign because the garage is never close to full. When I'm flying myself I leave my car home and take a cab so I don't have to even think about it. It's especially nice when you get home and just walk out and hop in a cab and he takes you home. I'm always exhausted after a flight, I don't sleep on planes.

Yeah I totally get it. I feel the same sometimes. On the other hand, back in the day when we were allowed to travel, I would sometimes love to get back into my own car after having a shitty rental during a business trip. It's like being in heaven!

I usually try to time my place in line for a cab to get a Towncar so I get nice cushy ride home. Doesn't always work but I'm good for about 60-70%. My ride is almost all highway as the airport is outside the city and I live on the same side of the city as the airport.

Yeah, that makes sense. I can definitely appreciate that after returning from a business trip overseas though. I don't sleep well on planes either.

Speaking of YHZ, did you know when it open in 1960 it was the first place in Nova-Scotia that had a set of "escalators"...

Huge lines up to try them

I didn't know that. It's an interesting bit of trivia though.

Growing up in the 90's we would laugh at guys taking about events in the 70's, NIXON, Vietnam and Bobby Orr, it was like a lifetime ago we thought.

that's us now talking about 9/11, Hurricane Katrina or when the Sox finally got it in 2004

I remember all of that vividly

My son was born 2005, doesn't know anything about those moments in time, he's driving now (new generation) he can talk about COVID in 20 years I guess and how Go puff could deliver Red Bull, flaming hot Cheetos and AA batteries for his Xbox remote in an hour
