Turkey One, A Journey of Enlightenment

Dude, let's do a 360!
Dude, do a 360!

So, I recently was able to fly home and see the family for Turkey Day.  This is a good thing!  And it turned out to be quite an educational experience.  For example, where most airports have little trams/trains on tracks, Dulles has Psycho 4×4 Living Rooms.  Basically you walk through a door into a room, and this dude DRIVES the entire room across the airplane parking lot to your terminal.

A strange blue cyber background with black lines going vertical and horizontal. The image of a woman takes up a third of the frame and she is starting at a the small image of a meme where someone is wearing a rainbow afro. "Support MindFuel Blog on Patreon" is meticulously crafted into a graphical overlay which obfuscates part of the underlying artistry. So sad.

The only bummer is, they have a high center of gravity, and it may be a problem attempting to do a 360 or catch any air with these, but…c’mon…a living room with wheels? How cool is that?

It gets even better.  I get to my gate and I am sitting there watching multiple camera crews talk about getting shots, there’s a gal directing folks to place Mickey Mouse balloons by the gate (they even ran to get a BLUE one, to make sure the colors were balanced).  Then, it was lights, camera, action!

Basically, the flight was “Turkey One.” On this flight, the turkeys that are pardoned by the President get flown to Disneyland. Disneyland!? Wow, and apparently the passengers can get their pictures taken with the turkeys, hang out, throw back 40s, and, well some things on Turkey One are probably best not shared. (What happens on Turkey One, stays on Turkey One, ok?)
